Willow Lake Fish Report for 11-12-2021
The reservoir is starting to fill and is 42 percent full
Willow Lake - Eagle Point, OR (Jackson County)
by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
The reservoir is starting to fill and is 42 percent full. The improved boat ramp is no longer usable, but personal watercraft such as kayaks and float tubes should be able to find areas to launch. The gravel/dirt ramp near the host should be available.
Trout, bass, crappie and perch are most prevalent here. Fishing from shore will likely produce plenty of perch and bluegill. Anglers targeting deeper water on the bank opposite the boat ramp by trolling will have greater success with rainbow trout. No trout have been stocked since late spring, but there should be fish still present.
Campgrounds at Willow Lake are closed for the 2021 season. Day use is open, but fees are collected. A yearly Jackson County Park pass are also available for $40, but expires at the end of the year. For more information please visit the Jackson County Parks website.
Anglers encountering illegally introduced yellow perch are always encouraged to take as many of these as they want. This illegal introduction has only resulted in stunted perch and impacts to the bass and trout fishery in this lake and numerous others around the Southwest District. Anglers are reminded that using live fish as bait is prohibited. If you see someone transporting live fish from or into a water body, please get a photo and/or call OSP with this information.
