Henry Hagg Lake Fishing Report

Henry Hagg Lake - Gaston, OR (Washington County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

As water temperatures continue to increase during the summer, the best times of day to target bass are in the mornings and evenings. Try fishing deep diving crankbaits to cover more area and locate fish set up in holes around 12–16 feet of water.

Hagg Lake is one of western Oregon’s largest lakes and is a premier warmwater fishing destination. The lake is home to both the state record smallmouth bass and bullhead catfish.

Maintained and operated by Washington County, the park features numerous picnic areas, two boat launching facilities, more than 15 miles of hiking trails, and observation decks for wildlife and bird watching. The lake and lake park are currently open, although users are encouraged to check the Hagg Lake Park website, as conditions can change.
