With cool temperatures trout fishing should be decent

Applegate Reservoir - Jacksonville, OR (Jackson County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

The elevation of the reservoir is dropping close to the 1,871-foot mark and the surface temperature is 45oF. 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, but mud or ice may make the launch difficult to use. The Copper boat ramp is unusable below 1,923 foot mark. Hart-tish Park closed Sept. 15. 

With cool temperatures trout fishing should be decent. 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.
