The boat ramp is unusable at this time!

Galesville Reservoir - Azalea, OR (Douglas County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Even with recent rains, the reservoir is the lowest it has been since the gage started in 2007. This shows just how much the drought has affected the area this year. The boat ramp is unusable at this time! With the loss of Rock Creek Hatchery, no “trophy trout” were stocked this year, but there should be lots of trout from earlier stockings. The lake was recently stocked with close to 30,000 fingerling trout.

Call 541-837-3302 for information on camping and boat launching conditions. Check out the Lake Level Gage for more information. If the gage is under 1820’ anglers should be cautioned the lake may be too low to launch a boat.

In Galesville Reservoir, all landlocked salmon are considered trout and are part of the five-per-day trout limit, with only one trout over 20 inches long allowed for harvest. If you catch any salmon in Galesville please e-mail a picture to [email protected].
