The 12th street boat ramp has an improved ramp and docks

Garrison Lake - Port Orford, OR (Curry County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

The aquatic vegetation is starting to grow so boat anglers will want to target the areas of the lake where the water is a little deeper. Slow trolling with a wedding ring spinner tipped with worms or other type of bait can be very effective. The best way to fish the lake is by boat, as there is limited shore access. ‌

The 12th street boat ramp has an improved ramp and docks. With higher water in the spring, the walkway onto the boat dock can be covered by water so anglers will need rubber boots to access the dock. Anglers will want to check the weather before heading out, as the lake can be very windy.
