by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Gold Lake fishing officially open for fishing May 22, 2024. Right now access is limited because there is still snow on the road, so you'll have to hike/snowshoe in until that snow melts. Gold Lake is closed to fishing between Oct. 31 and May 22 annually. ‌

Gold lake has special fishing regulations in place that include no retention of rainbow trout, no limit on brook trout, fly-fishing only (has to be a fly rod, no spinning rigs) and barbless hooks. Oregon State Marine Board passed a new regulation in 2020 that allows ELECTRIC motors only on Gold Lake. ‌

Gold Lake is a 100-acre lake located north of the Willamette Pass summit off Hwy. 58 approximately 23 miles southeast of Oakridge
