Applegate Reservoir Report

Applegate Reservoir - Jacksonville, OR (Jackson County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

The elevation of the reservoir is dropping close to the 1,887-foot mark and the surface temperature is 54oF. Check up-to-date reservoir levels here, or call the Army Corps of Engineers at 800-472-2434 for flow and temperature information.

The low water ramp at French Gulch is available and being used now. The Copper boat ramp is getting close to not being usable, but small boats may still be able to launch. Hart-tish Park closed Sept. 15. 

With cooling temperatures trout fishing should pick up. Applegate was stocked with additional trout this spring, and plenty of holdovers should be available. 

There is a longstanding health advisory for consumption of resident species due to elevated levels of mercury. See Oregon Health Authority consumption guidelines or the 2021 sportfishing regulations for more information
