Agate Lake has been filling rapidly with diversions from Little Butte Creek. It’s 41 percent full, but water clarity is likely pretty brown. The concrete boat ramp is usable. With the unseasonably warm weather this week fish may be more active. Target around the dam, boat ramp, and flats.

This is mostly a crappie and bluegill fishery with some bass in the mix. Yellow perch are also prolific. Anglers may want to consider fishing for bullhead catfish with chicken livers fished off the bottom in the early morning or late evening. The Jackson County Parks day use area closes after sunset and day use fees are charged. There is a 10mph speed limit on this reservoir and electric motors only.
