Hills Creek Reservoir - Oakridge, OR

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Hills Creek Reservoir was last stocked the week of May 2, with 2,840 rainbow trout. This reservoir typically supports a good spring fishery for holdover rainbow trout. Don’t forget that you can keep hatchery Chinook in the reservoir as mentioned below. 

Hills Creek Reservoir is located about four miles southeast of Oakridge and is open to year-round fishing. In addition to catchable-size trout, the reservoir is stocked with 60,000 adipose fin-clipped rainbow trout fingerlings and 100,000 adipose fin-clipped spring Chinook salmon fingerlings annually to provide a harvest fishery the following year.

Trout and salmon must be adipose fin-clipped to be harvested. Large native trout are available for catch-and-release fishing. Packard Boat Ramp (USFS) remains accessible at current reservoir elevation.
