Applegate was stocked recently

Applegate Reservoir - Jacksonville, OR (Jackson County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Applegate's reservoir level is currently at 1,979 feet, and the lake surface temperature is 49F. Check up-to-date reservoir levels here, or call the Army Corps of Engineers at 800-472-2434 for flow and temperature information.‌

The reservoir is high enough now that Copper Boat Ramp is usable along with French Gulch. Holdover rainbow trout provided some very good action before the recent rains, so Applegate is good bet for trout anglers. Applegate was stocked recently with 10,000 legal-sized trout but anglers please note that the trophies will not be stocked this year. These fish are needed to make up losses in hatchery trout production this year.‌

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.
