Hagg Lake continues to receive regular stockings

Henry Hagg Lake - Gaston, OR (Washington County)

Hagg Lake continues to receive regular stockings of catchable-size trout with some trophies mixed in.

Bass fishing should pick up as temperatures begin to warm this spring and pre-spawn fishing comes into full swing. Targeting the creek arms and shallow coves during this time can be very productive using lures that mimic small baitfish (crankbaits, plugs, swimbaits) that can be cast or trolled to effectively cover shallow to mid-water habitat. 

Hagg Lake is one of western Oregon’s largest lakes and is a premier warmwater fishing destination. The lake is home to both the state record smallmouth bass and bullhead catfish.

Maintained and operated by Washington County, the park features numerous picnic areas, two boat launching facilities, more than 15 miles of hiking trails, and observation decks for wildlife and bird watching. The lake and lake park are currently open, although users are encouraged to check the Hagg Lake Park website, as conditions can change.
