Applegate Reservoir - Jacksonville, OR (Jackson County)

Applegate reservoir has been fishing well for recently stocked legal rainbow trout.  Most of these fish are in the 8- to 10-inch range, but there are definitely holdover trout present.  Recent reports indicated larger fish were in at least 30 feet of water so a downrigger would be useful if your vessel is equipped with that. The weekends can be busy out here at popular beaches along the Hart-tish day use area. Fish early! Bait is allowed and 5 trout per day, year-round, on the streams above Applegate Dam and the lake itself. All three boat ramps - French Gulch, Hart-Tish, and Copper - are open. Reservations for camping can be made at Recreation.gov.

Bass anglers have also done pretty well.

For a change of scenery, try driving up to the lakes above Applegate Reservoir.  These lakes have illegally and stunted yellow perch with no limit.  Bass and bluegill are also in these lakes.  There is camping also available, but expect crowds on the weekdns.

The reservoir is 60 percent full with an elevation of 1,954.61ft. Surface temperatures are approaching the 70s. Anglers can get the latest information by calling the US Army Corps Lost Creek Lake and Applegate Reservoir projects information line at 1-800-472-2434.
