Fish Lake Fish Report for 7-21-2021
Irrigation withdrawals are continuing to make Fish Lake drop quickly.
Fish Lake - Lakecreek, OR (Jackson County)
by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
Irrigation withdrawals are continuing to make Fish Lake drop quickly. The current lake level is 19 percent full. The USFS Dock is unusable, but the marina should still be able to launch smaller vessels. The Fish Lake Resort and Marina also have small motorboats available for rent, which also conveniently are already launched for you! The weather and air quality up here has been very good as of late and it’s still definitely worth a trip up here! Fishing continues to be good and water clarity has improved since a mild algae bloom the last week or two, according to the resort. Anglers are reminded that it is illegal to use live fish as bait in any Oregon lake, river or stream.
Fish Lake Marina and Store opens on Friday. Call ahead to book a boat rental! The store, restaurant, and marina are open 7 days a week: 541-949-8500 or check their Facebook page. The patio and restaurant is a great place to grab a bite to eat after fishing or hiking and take in the scenery.

Any tiger trout caught should be immediately released unharmed. Anglers are encouraged to report their catch or any other fish stories to Rogue Fish District Staff 541-826-8774
