Agate Lake - Medford, OR (Jackson County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Agate has received 3,000 legal rainbow trout since Feb. 14, with the most recent stocking occurring the first week of March. The reservoir has a good concrete boat launch and is 97 percent full, but water clarity is cloudy. The concrete boat ramp is usable. With the unseasonably warm weather this week warm water angling should be picking up nicely. Target around the dam and boat ramp. Anglers might also find some crappie and yellow perch on the 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 10 mph speed limit on this reservoir and electric motors only.
