There are still trout available at Expo Pond

Expo Pond - Central Point, OR (Jackson County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

There are still trout available at Expo Pond, but they’ll be starting to seek out deeper water.  Expo has received 8,500 legal rainbow trout this spring. This is a popular fishery in the spring. Weed growth is starting to pick up along the banks of the middle pond. Warmwater fishing is picking up, especially in the most northern pond. 

PowerBait, nightcrawlers, and single salmon eggs have all produced. Use as small a hook as possible since many of the trout are sometimes fickle biters with stationary baits. Spoons and spinners have also led to strong strikes. A light action rod and reel here will be the most fun for the trout bite.

Daily trout and bass limit at Expo Pond is 5 fish per day of each species.

Expo pond is part of the Jackson County Parks system. A $4 Day use pass is necessary to park in the day use lot at gate 5. Annual passes can be purchased from Jackson County Parks off of Table Rock Road/Mosquito Rd.

Chinese mystery snails are present here in the most northern pond. They are highly invasive and were illegally dumped here.  Please do not move these creatures and drain and dry any personal watercraft before using them in another waterbody.
