The current lake level is 25 percent full and the lake is filling up

Fish Lake - Lakecreek, OR (Jackson County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

The store, restaurant and marina are now closed for the season. They will reopen on Nov. 26. Unfortunately, this also includes the boat ramp at the resort is closed. Call 541-949-8500 or check their Facebook page for more info. The ODOT trip check camera shows some light snow along OR140. You can check the camera here. Expect a relatively nice weekend along the cascade crest in S. Oregon with temperatures approaching the high 50s.

The current lake level is 25 percent full and the lake is filling nicely with input from natural springs and recent precipitation. Unfortunately, the USFS dock is still unusable at this time. Expect mostly rain with some sparse scattering of snow for at least the next week. Personal watercraft is the best bet if wanting to get on the water at the USFS access.  

Fish lake received 900 pounder trout back in October. Water clarity should be excellent.  The USFS boat ramp is still probably a ways off from being usable, except for smaller vessels. There’s still time to fish here before the lake begins to freeze over and fishing has been good.

For more information on National Forest developed recreation sites, fire restrictions and campground information for the Rogue River Siskiyou National Forest please visit here.  Snow park permits are necessary for parking from November 1-April 30.

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.
