Best time to fish is early or late in the day

Garrison Lake - Port Orford, OR (Curry County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

In addition to holdover fish from last season and native cutthroat, anglers will have a chance at catching rainbow trout stocked earlier this Spring. Additionally, as the spring weather warms the lake, the bass will become more active and ready to bite. Best time to fish is early or late in the day when the wind is not howling. Winter water temperatures may affect fish behavior.

Bank anglers can find access at the 12th street or Pinehurst boat ramps and off Paradise Point Road. The lake can be very windy so anglers will want to check the weather before heading out. Fishing earlier in the day is usually better because the winds tend to pick up in the afternoon.
