The boat ramp is just usable and anglers are taking advantage of it

Galesville Reservoir - Azalea, OR (Douglas County)

ODFW is scheduled to stock this week and there should be lots of fresh trout in the reservoir. Recent reports indicate there are still some holdover trout being caught from last year’s fish stockings as well.

The boat ramp is just usable and anglers are taking advantage of it. The reservoir is holding at a steady level for now, but with no significant rain in the forecast, it may be too low to launch a boat. Call 541-837-3302 for information on camping and boat launching conditions. Check out the Lake Level Gauge for more information. If the gauge is under 1,820 feet 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].
