Cooper Creek Reservoir Report

Cooper Creek Reservoir - Sutherlin, OR (Douglas County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Caution: The west boat ramp at Cooper has a severe drop off that had stopped some boats from launching and some trailers had been damaged. With recent rains this may have changed. Please use caution if using the ramp. The East Ramp has been usable.

The reservoir may start to fill back up again, but it was still low at last check. ODFW couldn’t stock the last group of fish in Cooper, but over 10,000 trout were stocked this year so there should be plenty still around. Warmwater fishing seems to still be good with anglers catching some bluegill, perch and crappie.

Beginning in 2016, Cooper has been stocked with coho and Chinook salmon juveniles. Just recently ODFW stocked over 28,000 coho juveniles in the reservoir in 2021. These are often mistaken for kokanee. Anglers may retain up to 5 salmon juveniles in the reservoir as part of their daily trout bag limit. Please remember to release salmon and trout less than 8 inches.
