ODFW recently stocked the lake with LOTS of trout. A recent report had anglers catching a ton of trout including some hold-over trout from last May.

The boat ramp is just usable and anglers are taking advantage of it. The reservoir is slowly dropping and with no significant rain in the forecast, it may soon 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].
