Lake Selmac Fish Report for 5-12-2021
3,000 Legal Trout Will Be Stocked This Week
Lake Selmac - Selma, OR (Josephine County)
by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
Trout fishing should be good out at Selmac lake with multiple recent stockings in the last two months and another recent stocking of 3000 legal trout this week. Bass fishing should also be good.
ODFW is aware of some recent dead bluegill at the lake. These appear to be of natural causes, associated with recent spawning activity. However, ODFW is coordinating observations with Josephine County Parks, and is also sending samples to their fish pathology lab, and will continue to monitor the situation.
Lake Selmac facilities operated by Josephine County Parks are currently open. More information about Josephine County Parks can be found on their website.
Lake Selmac also has a recent non-native introduction of a bryozoan. Bryozoans are mossy like creatures that usually help to clean water and that are not typically harmful to humans. However, this particular species has been known to harbor a disease that can be transmitted to salmon and steelhead. Please drain and dry your vessel if you are going to another water body and help stop Oregon’s aquatic hitchhikers!
Anglers are reminded that only 1 bass may be harvested from Selmac per day.
