Agate Lake is at 36 Percent Capacity

Agate Lake - Medford, OR (Jackson County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Agate Lake is at 36 percent capacity. Conditions are ok out here, but water clarity is an issue. Surface water temperatures will be in the mid-70s. Crappie and some bass/bluegill should still be available. Anglers may want to consider fishing for bullhead catfish with chicken livers fished off the bottom in the early morning or late evening. The Jackson County Parks day use area closes after sunset and day use fees are charged. There is a 10mph speed limit on this reservoir.

Agate Lake has a good population of black crappie and introduced yellow perch, as well as brown bullhead.
