Fishing for warmwater fish should be the focus for Applegate anglers

Applegate Reservoir - Jacksonville, OR (Jackson County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Applegate reservoir level is currently at 1945 feet, and the surface temperature has dropped to 75oF. Check up-to-date reservoir levels here, or call the Army Corps of Engineers at 800-472-2434 for flow and temperature information. The Copper and Hart-tish Park boat ramps are available.‌

Fishing for warmwater fish should be the focus for Applegate anglers. Fishing for bass is good, especially for smallmouth bass. Trout anglers will want to fish early morning and in deeper water but should be cautious with catch-and-release fishing as reservoir surface temperatures rise.‌

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 2022 sportfishing regulations for more information.
