We’d love to hear about your recent fishing experience. Send us your own fishing report through ODFW Fishing Reports―the information will be forwarded to the local biologist who may use it to update various ODFW resources such as the weekly Recreation Report.

LAKE, PONDS, RESERVOIRS

Water surface temperatures are starting to drop with the onset of autumn like weather.  ODFW will soon be stocking “fall fingerling” and sub-legal size rainbow trout in larger reservoirs for overwintering. Fish must be 8 inches to legally retain. If anglers encounter them, handling them with care and releasing them gently will allow them to grow and be of catcheable size by the spring. Larger legal and pounder trout are also being stocked over the next few weeks. 

Even with very low water levels at many popular destinations, small personal watercraft such as kayaks, float tubes and canoes can still launch in most instances. Some of the larger reservoirs will still have boat access on improved (concrete) ramps. Even some of these are getting low. Staff tries to update these in a timely manner, so check the local waterbody for any updated information on launch conditions.

Bass and panfish fishing is still a good bet in many small ponds, reservoirs and lakes.  Water temperatures don’t really start cooling off to where warmwater species slow down until mid-October in most valley waterbodies.

Anglers and other members of the public should remember that it’s illegal to fish with live fish as bait in all lakes, ponds, reservoirs, creeks and rivers in Oregon. Also, transporting fish, shellfish, crayfish, amphibians, or even dumping the contents of an aquarium into a waterbody is illegal and can be very detrimental to these systems. If you see someone doing any of these things, please report it to OSP or your local fish and wildlife office immediately. Or better yet, if you feel safe, ask the person to stop as you see it happening. Education is key to keeping Oregon’s waterways free from additional invasive or unwanted species.

RIVERS AND STREAMS

Trout fishing is open on most mainstem rivers through Oct. 31. Checks specific streams within a larger basin in the exceptions section to see if they are open or closed or are open after October 31. In general, all tributaries to the Rogue, Applegate and Illinois are closed to fishing, unless noted in the exceptions section of the SW Zone.

RECENTLY STOCKED

Scheduled to be stocked this week: Butterfield Lake, Saunders Lake, Upper Empire Lake, Bradley Lake, Powers Pond, Lost Creek Reservoir.

Check out the 2021 trout stocking schedule.

UPDATES BY WATERBODY

AGATE LAKE: crappie, yellow perch, brown bullhead

Agate Lake is still hovering around10 percent capacity. The boat ramp is covered with mud and unusable. Personal watercraft can still launch, or anglers can fish from the bank. Surface water temperatures have cooled to the 70s with the lower daytime highs. Be on the lookout for evidence of algae blooms.

This is mostly a crappie and bluegill fishery with some bass in the mix. Yellow perch are also prolific. Anglers may want to consider fishing for bullhead catfish with chicken livers fished off the bottom in the early morning or late evening. The Jackson County Parks day use area closes after sunset and day use fees are charged. There is a 10mph speed limit on this reservoir. Last updated 8/25/21.

APPLEGATE RESERVOIR and river above the reservoir: trout, largemouth bass, yellow perch (lakes east of Applegate Reservoir)

The only useable boat ramp at Applegate Reservoir is the French Gulch Boat Ramp. It’ll be next spring before Hart-tish and Copper are usable again. 

Hart-tish campground is now closed for the season. 

Bait is allowed and 5 trout per day, year-round, on the streams above Applegate Dam and the lake itself.

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 2021 sportfishing regulations for more information.

For a change of scenery, try driving up to the lakes above Applegate Reservoir. These lakes have illegally and stunted yellow perch with no limit. Bass and bluegill are also in these lakes. There also is camping available but expect crowds on the weekends.

The reservoir is 17 percent full, with an elevation of 1,900.8 ft. Surface temperatures are in the low-mid 60s. Anglers can get the latest information by calling the US Army Corps Lost Creek Lake and Applegate Reservoir projects information line at 1-800-472-2434. Last updated 10/13/21.

APPLEGATE RIVER below Applegate Dam: trout

The river is open to trout fishing throught the end of the year. Only hatchery trout may be retained, 2 per day. All wild rainbow trout and cutthroat trout should be immediately released unharmed. Anglers are reminded that the Applegate River is closed to salmon fishing. Trout anglers are asked to be mindful of spawning Chinook salmon and no disturb these fish or their gravel redds.  Anglers are also encouraged to catch and remove non-local pikeminnow. Areas such as Fish Hatchery County Park have lots of pikeminnow. 

There is good bank access around the Hwy 199 bridge, Fish Hatchery Park, Cantrall Buckley Park, upstream of Murphy, and near McKee Bridge. There are also scatterings of BLM lands in the upper river around McKee Bridge. In-flows to Applegate Lake have dropped significantly, and outflow from the dam is 149 cfs and 56 degrees F. You can check the flows on the Applegate when planning a trip. Last updated 10/13/21.

ARIZONA POND: rainbow trout

Slow. Water levels are low and the pond is very weedy. The pond was stocked heavily this spring and some wily rainbows are likely still lurking around in the deeper water. Young anglers may have some success early in the morning or late in the afternoon when conditions are cooler. A bobber with good old -fashioned PowerBait should entice these fish to bite. Pulling spinners could work as well but might be more challenging with the additional vegetation this time of year.

Oregon State Parks manages Arizona Pond for anglers ages 17 and under. This is a great place for new anglers to learn fishing techniques. Last updated 9/22/21.

BEN IRVING RESERVOIR: rainbow trout, bass, bluegill, yellow perch, crappie

No recent reports from Ben Irving. Fishing should be good with cooler conditions and some hungry trout. Last updated 10/6/21.

BRADLEY LAKE: trout, largemouth bass

Bradley Lake is scheduled to be stocked this week with fall rainbow trout. Anglers should have success trolling spinners in the main lake. Last updated 10/13/21.

BUTTERFIELD LAKE: warmwater fish

Butterfield Lake is scheduled to be stocked this week with fall rainbow trout. 

Trout anglers are also catching holdover trout that were stocked this past spring. Anglers are having success using PowerBait or trolling spinners. Last updated 10/13/21.

CHETCO RIVER: Chinook, trout

The estuary has been bustling with boat and bank anglers lately. Catch has been good. Though river levels are still fairly low, recent rainfall colored the water up a bit and may have encouraged some early fish to move. Temporary rule changes for wild adult Chinook are now in place Aug. 31-Dec. 31. One wild adult Chinook per day and two total for this time period. This temporary rule change affects only adult wild Chinook. All other zone regulations still apply including the hatchery Chinook retention and the bobber rule.  The ocean-terminal ‘bubble’ fishery will not be open this year.

ODFW tracks hatchery survival and other important information through Coded Wire Tag returns. Anglers with hatchery catch are encouraged to return adipose fin-clipped Chinook snouts to ODFW. A snout box with instructions is located inside the fish cleaning station in the port near the boat ramp. Thank you for your participation. Last updated 10/6/21.

COOPER CREEK RESERVOIR: rainbow trout, bass, bluegill, coho and Chinook smolts

Caution: The west boat ramp at Cooper has a severe drop off that likely prohibits some boats from launching and some trailers have been damaged. Please use caution if using the ramp. The East Ramp is still usable. This may have been alleviated with some of the recent rains.

The reservoir may start to fill back up again, but it was still low at last check. ODFW couldn’t stock the last group of fish in Cooper, but over 10,000 trout were stocked this year so there should be plenty. Warmwater fishing continue to be pretty good with anglers catching a variety.

Beginning in 2016, Cooper has been stocked with coho and Chinook salmon juveniles (20,000 coho in 2019). These are often mistaken for kokanee. Anglers may retain up to 5 salmon juveniles in the reservoir as part of their daily trout bag limit. Please remember to release salmon and trout less than 8 inches. Last updated 10/13/21

COOS RIVER BASIN: bottomfish, trout, salmon

Boat and bank anglers (on the jetty) are still catching rockfish inside lower Coos Bay. Smaller jigs with a twister tail or 1-ounce jigging spoons have been working to catch rockfish. The daily bag limit for marine fish was recently reduced to 5. As of June 1, boat anglers are no longer able to retain China, copper and quillback rockfish. Anglers can still harvest 2 lingcod per day. 

The wild coho fishery in Coos Basin closes after October 15.  Salmon anglers will still be able to harvest hatchery and wild Chinook after October 15th.  Chinook salmon fishing continues to be slow in the Coos Basin. Most of the Chinook salmon anglers are fishing Marshfield Channel and in the Coos River. Salmon anglers are allowed 2 wild Chinook per day and 10 for the season in the Coos Basin this year. The limited wild coho season started in Coos Basin on Sept. 15 and goes through Oct. 15. Anglers will be allowed to harvest 1 wild coho per day with 2 for the season in the Coos Basin.

Trout fishing in streams and rivers remains open through Oct. 31. Anglers can now use bait in all streams and rivers while fishing for trout. Last updated 10/13/21. 

COQUILLE RIVER BASIN: striped bass, smallmouth bass, trout

Striped bass fishing has been good in the lower Coquille River. Anglers are casting swimbaits and crankbaits to catch striped bass.  here is no size limit or daily bag limit on striped bass.

A temporary regulation started on May 22 allowing anglers in Coquille River system to use spears and spear guns to harvest smallmouth bass. Traditional rod and reel anglers can also use bait throughout the river system. This unique fishing opportunity is one of many efforts to reduce the impact of illegally-introduced bass on Chinook populations. Spearfish anglers have been reporting some success harvesting smallmouth bass in the South Fork Coquille River.    

Note that for the remainder of 2021 season, there is a complete closure of salmon fishing in the Coquille Basin, due to a severe decline in both wild and hatchery fall Chinook returns.

Trout fishing in streams and rivers is open through Oct. 31. Last updated 10/13/21.

DIAMOND LAKE: trout

The crowds are small this time of year at Diamond, but the fishing is good. Recent reports indicate limits for lots of anglers and large fish.

Anglers should check with the Umpqua National Forest (541-498-2531) for information on camps and ramps. Seasonal closures are occurring for campgrounds and boat launches. Anglers can check fishing and water conditions at Diamond Lake on the Diamond Lake Resort Facebook page, or call 541-793-3333 for updates. Diamond Lake is open year-round.

Diamond Lake has been stocked with tiger and brown trout. These fish are intended to assist in controlling illegally introduced tui chub. These trout are catch-and-release only and need to be released immediately and unharmed if caught. Last updated 10/6/21.

EEL LAKE: trout, warmwater fish

Anglers are still reporting catching a few trout this past week from a boat and from the fishing dock in Eel Lake. Boat anglers have been picking up trout by trolling with wedding ring spinners tipped with a worm. Anglers are catching trout from the fishing dock casting spinners, fishing PowerBait, or casting a nightcrawler on a hook with no weight.

Be aware that anglers are also catching juvenile coho salmon which are not legal to harvest and must be released immediately unharmed. 

Crappies and bluegills are transitioning to deeper water for the winter as the water temperatures continue to cool. Last updated 10/6/21. 

ELK RIVER: Chinook, trout

Temporary rule changes for Chinook are now in place Aug. 1-Dec. 31. No retention of adult wild Chinook. All other zone regulations still apply. Anglers may find some early run success near the mouth of the river. Please be cognizant of private property and always get permission before accessing the river through private land. Last updated 10/6/21.

EMIGRANT RESERVOIR: largemouth and smallmouth bass, crappie, bluegill, bullhead, catfish, rainbow trout

No boat ramps are usable. Anglers fishing from watercraft such as rafts, kayaks, SUPs and float tubes may need to drag vessels closer to the point to find firmer substrate. The A ramp area is a mud pit. For bank anglers interested in a little hike, walk along the shore toward the dam to find the deepest water.

Emigrant is close to deadpool. Still, there should be areas with 40-50 feet of water. Trout will be found in these areas.

There is a longstanding health advisory for consumption of resident warmwater species in Emigrant for high levels of mercury. Consult the sportfishing regulations or the Oregon Health Authority for more information on consumption guidelines. 

For more information on park facilities closures visit the Jackson County Parks website. The RV Park is only open to fire victims, but the tent campsites are open to the public.

The reservoir is continuing to drop and is currently at 2 percent capacity. Surface temperatures should be in the mid-60s. Last updated 10/13/21. 

EMPIRE LAKE: rainbow trout

Fall rainbow trout are scheduled to be stocked in Upper Empire Lake this week. Anglers should have success catching trout casting spoons/spinners or by fishing PowerBait. Last updated 10/13/21.

EXPO POND: rainbow trout, largemouth bass, bluegill, black crappie

Warmwater fishing continues at Expo and should probably be picking up with the recent cooling temperatures. The most northern pond is probably the best bet for largemouth bass, black crappie and bluegill. There are still some trout down very deep in the middle Expo Pond, but don’t expect much trout success out here.

Bluegill are prolific and very close to the shore, especially along the deeper drop-offs. A very small hook and piece of nightcrawler, or small fly under a bobber can be a very easy setup for young anglers to have success out here.

Daily trout and bass limit at Expo Pond is 5 fish per day of each species. There is no trout stocking planned until early spring.

Chinese mystery snails are present here in the most northern pond. Please do not move these creatures and drain and dry any personal watercraft before using them in another waterbody. Last updated 10/13/21.

FISH LAKE: rainbow trout, brook trout, spring Chinook

The current lake level is 19 percent full and the lake is slowly filling with input from natural springs. The USFS dock is still unusable, but small vessels can easily launch from the marina and resort side. The rental boats have been pulled for the year.

Fish lake is an excellent fall destination and recently received 900 trout nearing a pound each.  Recent angling reports have been good and water clarity is excellent with the input from natural springs.

The store, restaurant, and marina have modified their hours with the onset of fall weather: call 541-949-8500 or check their Facebook page for more info. The patio/restaurant is a great place to grab a bite to eat after fishing or hiking and take in the scenery.

More information on National Forest Developed recreation sites, fire restrictions and campground information for the Rogue River Siskiyou National Forest please visit here.

Any tiger trout caught should be immediately released unharmed. Anglers are encouraged to report their catch or any other fish stories to Rogue Fish District Staff 541-826-8774. Last updated 10/13/21.

FLORAS LAKE: trout

Anglers should try fishing early in the day before wind makes recreation on the late more challenging. Casting or trolling with spinners, bait and bobber, and fly-fishing are all popular fishing methods for chasing trout in Floras Lake. Bank access is very limited and most anglers fish from a boat. The boat ramp is located at Boice Cope County Park. Last updated 10/6/21.

FLORAS CREEK/NEW RIVER:  Chinook

Temporary regulations are in effect for wild fall Chinook from Aug 1 – Dec 31. Only 1 wild adult Chinook may be kept for the season.  This is also part of a sub-zone aggregate bag limit with the Sixes River. Please see tables at the top of the zone report for details. Last updated 9/15/21.

GALESVILLE RESERVOIR: rainbow trout, bass

According to the gage, the reservoir is the lowest it has been since the gage started in 2007. This shows just how much the drought has affected the area this year. The ramp still seems to be usable at last check. With the loss of Rock Creek Hatchery, no “trophy trout” were stocked this year, but there should be lots of trout from earlier stockings.

Call 541-837-3302 for information on camping and boat launching conditions. Check out the Lake Level Gage for more information.

In Galesville Reservoir, all landlocked salmon are considered trout and are part of the five-per-day trout limit, with only one trout over 20 inches long allowed for harvest. If you catch any salmon in Galesville please e-mail a picture to Greg.f.Huchko@odfw.state.gov.  Last updated 10/13/21.

GARRISON LAKE: trout

Best time to fish is early or late in the day when the wind is not howling. Bank fishing is somewhat limited by aquatic vegetation this time of year. With the onset of fall, water temperatures are starting to cool and may affect fish behavior.

Bank anglers can find access at the 12th street or Pinehurst boat ramps and off Paradise Point Road. The lake can be very windy so anglers will want to check the weather before heading out. Fishing earlier in the day is usually better because the winds tend to pick up in the afternoon. Last updated 10/6/20.

HEMLOCK LAKE & LAKE IN THE WOODS (Douglas County): trout

Closed due to fire.

Much of the Umpqua National Forest is closed to access including both Hemlock and Lake in the Woods. Check out the current closure here.

Anglers should check with the Umpqua National Forest (541-496-3532) for information on camp, road and ramp closures.

Anglers fishing the high lakes in the Umpqua District are encouraged to email fishing reports to Greg.f.Huchko@odfw.oregon.gov. Remember to only keep trout at least 8 inches long, and only one trout over 20 inches per day. Last updated 9/9/21.

HOWARD PRAIRIE RESERVOIR: rainbow trout, smallmouth bass, largemouth bass

Emergency regulations are no longer in effect at Howard Prairie. Zone regulations are back in place, and size limits and daily bag limits apply.  

Small personal watercraft such as kayaks, canoe and float tubes are probably the best access for getting on the water. Trout appeared to have survived the summer’s warm temperatures. We recently stocked fall fingerlings and anglers should be aware of these small non-legal size fish. If handled with care, they will grow nicely over the winter. 

The reservoir is at 4 percent capacity and is slowly starting to rise. The forecast of a wet la Nina winter, if materializing, will help fill Howard as it is mainly filled by higher elevation rain, not snow. 

The Rogue Fish District is still interested in anglers catch composition, so there are trout stocked with differential fin marks representing different fish stocks. Anglers interested in reporting their catch or learning more about this program and what to look for, are encouraged to call 541-857-2411 and speak with the local STEP Biologist. Specifically, look for clips on ventral fins or adipose fins in your catch.

There is a Hwy 66 and Hyatt Lake Rd webcam that may help if you’re planning an adventure. There is a Jackson County webcam at the Dead Indian Memorial Summit.

More information on facilities and camping can be found on Jackson County Parks website.  Most campgrounds are now closed for the season except the campsites at the resort. other boat ramps are inaccessible. The best bank access is near the dam. Last updated 10/13/21.

HUNTER CREEK: Chinook, trout

Temporary rule changes for wild adult Chinook are now in place Aug. 1 - Dec. 31. Only 1 wild adult Chinook is allowed for this period. Please see tables at the top of the zone report for details. Last updated 9/22/21.

HYATT LAKE: rainbow trout, largemouth bass

Emergency regulations have been lifted at Hyatt Lake and zone regulations now apply.  Hyatt Lake doesn’t seem to have fared as well as Howard did over the summer. There still may be some bass to be found, but don’t expect much for trout. 

All water users should keep an eye out for harmful algae blooms at low reservoirs and check this article to learn how to be safe while fishing. Water conditions this past weekend resembled split peas soup, as a yellowish green cloudy tint. Folks should keep their dogs from drinking water and consider avoiding contact with the water themselves if conditions continue to look that way.

Hyatt lake resort, store and restaurant are still open. This is a great place to swing by and grab a bite to eat for mountain visitors.

There is a Hwy 66 and Hyatt Lake Rd webcam that may help you if you are planning a trip. Also, ODOT trip check is worth looking at. Last updated 10/13/21.

ILLINOIS RIVER: trout

Emergency Angling Closure: All fishing is closed from the green bridge on 8 dollar Road which crosses the Illinois River (downstream of Kerby), upstream to Pomeroy Dam (Near Cave Junction) from Oct. 1 through Nov. 30. 

Salmon fishing is closed year-round on the Illinois as per SW zone regulations. Anglers are also reminded that the mainstem Illinois upstream of Pomeroy Dam and all tributaries on the entire river are also closed year-round.  There are numerous spawning grounds upstream of Pomeroy Dam and salmon should be left to do their job for the next generation.  If you suspect illegal activity, please call OSP or the local ODFW District Office.

The rest of the the Illinois is open to trout fishing and hatchery steelhead through the end of the year. There are no hatchery programs on the Illinois, so anglers will mostly encounter wild cutthroat and rainbow trout. These fish must be immediately released unharmed. Steelhead don’t typically enter the Illinois until at least December.

During the emergency angling closure trout fishing is still open downstream of 8 dollar bridge road. There is also good bank access along the Illinois River Rd. outside of Selma, all the way downstream to Miami Bar. Please park outside of the white lines to keep roads clear. Do your part and pack out what you pack in, as well as someone else’s trash. There is trash service available at the Siskiyou Field Institute outside of Selma.

Much of the publicly accessible reaches of the Illinois River fall under the USFS Wild Rivers Ranger District. More information can be found on their website.

Check the USGS Kerby guage which provides up to date river flow information. Last updated 10/13/21. 

LAKE SELMAC (Selmac Lake): trout, largemouth bass, bluegill, crappie

No trout are planned to be stocked in Selmac Lake until the spring. However, bass fishing should remain fair to good out here through the fall and winter months. Fishing from a boat is probably the best bet, targeting the shore and vegetation lines. Summer aquatic weeds will be starting to die off in the coming weeks. If trout is your thing, then fishing off the bottom near the dam is probably the best bet.

Bluegill fishing from shore has slowed, but still a small chironomid fly under a bobber, or very small piece of worm should pick up a few fish. This can be fun for the young anglers.  As always, switching up fly colors is recommended.

The Resort at Lake Selmac is under new ownership. This is a great place to pick up a fishing license, bait, ice and snacks. Check them out. Camping is also available.

Lake Selmac facilities including most campgrounds, day use, and boat ramps are operated by Josephine County Parks are currently open. More information about Josephine County Parks can be found on their website.

Lake Selmac has its share of non-native aquatic hitchhikers. Boat owners should do their part to remove as much vegetation as possible while leaving the ramp, as well as drain and dry their vessel before using another waterbody. Lake Selmac has had a recent introduction of a non-native bryozoan. Bryozoans are mossy like creatures that usually help to clean water and that are not typically harmful to humans. However, this particular species has been known to harbor a disease that can be transmitted to salmon and steelhead. Please help stop the spread of Oregon’s aquatic hitchhikers!

Anglers are reminded that only 1 bass may be harvested from Selmac per day. Last updated 10/13/21.

LEMOLO RESERVOIR: brown trout, rainbow trout, kokanee

Angler are reporting good catches in Lemolo despite the cool weather. The reservoir has been dropping while it is drawn down for the fall. The lake is currently about 10 feet lower than a couple weeks ago. This can concentrate fish and make them easier to target. Anglers have also reported catching tiger trout. Unlike at Diamond Lake, anglers can retain tigers at Lemolo.

Kokanee in Lemolo are considered trout and fall under the daily limit for trout of 5 per day, with only one of those measuring over 20 inches. Last updated 10/13/21

LOST CREEK RESERVOIR: rainbow trout, bass

The only ramp usable at Lost Creek Lake is the Takelma ramp operated by the US Army Corps of Engineers on the NW side of the lake. As conditions at area lakes and reservoirs continue to deteriorate due to low water levels, the Takelma ramp will continue to be a place where larger vessels can launch. However, there is no dock here. 

Trout fishing should be good. 5,000 legal trout and 2,300 larger trout near a pound each are scheduled to be stocked this week. Last week 15,000 sub-legal trout were also stocked.  These will be undersized, and anglers should handle these fish with care as they will over-winter and be of catchable size for next spring.

By late fall trout that have remained in the reservoir over the summer carry a lot of copepods. This is due to fish congregating near cold water sources from the late summer.  Copepods pose no threat to humans, are still edible, and can be scraped off the fish prior to cooking. Anglers are encouraged to harvest these fish to help lower copepod levels.  Spinners, wedding rings, and spoons all tipped with nightcrawlers do well up here when trolled. Dead drifting nightcrawlers with the wind under a bobber also do well. With surface temperatures cooling significantly over the last month, trout will again be dispersing throughout the lake. Bank fishing near the dam and tower, above Hwy 62 and along the Lost Creek Arm are good bets. 

Bass anglers can still do fairly well targeting steep drop offs near the bank and rocky outcrops.

Joseph Stuart Recreation Area is managed by Jackson County Parks. All loops except “Loop A” will close on Nov. 1. The boat ramp at the marina is closed due to low water. If you’re a frequent user of day use facilities here, a Jackson County Parks season pass is $40 and covers many other local Rogue Valley fishing destinations, as well. More information can be found on the Jackson County Parks website.

The lake continues to drop and is 13 percent full, with an elevation of 1,772.5 ft. The lake surface temperature is 62 degrees.   

Anglers can get the latest surface temperatures by calling the US Army Corps Lost Creek Lake and Applegate Reservoir projects information line at 1-800-472-2434. Last updated 10/13/21.

MEDCO POND: rainbow trout, largemouth bass, bluegill

In general fishing has been slow up here as trout were last stocked in the early summer.  However, cooling fall weather should improve the trout bite for the remaining fish still around. A small boat or float tube are a good bet up here that can give more access than along the Western bank along the road. Fishing from the bank for bluegill can be very productive. Bass should be more active. 

For kids, try fishing a nightcrawler on a #4 hook or smaller under a bobber. A red/black/white choronomid fly is also a tempting target for feisty bluegill along the shore.  These small flies can be fished with spinning gear under a bobber/bubble instead of a fly rod. 

Medco Pond is a private pond and access can be revoked at any time. Bank anglers should stay away from the east portion of the lake, again due to private property.  To help keep access open, anglers should make sure to pick up their trash, as well as other trash when they are there. The owners of Medco have restricted vehicle access to along the roadway because of vandals and dumpers. If you see someone doing something that may risk access for everyone, please let ODFW know.

PACIFIC OCEAN AND BEACHES: bottomfish, surfperch, salmon, halibut

Boat anglers have been doing very well catching nice size lingcod and rockfish when the ocean swells are down. Bottom fishing is now open to all depths . The daily bag limit for marine fish was recently reduced to 5 fish. As of June 1, boat anglers can no longer retain China, copper, and quillback rockfish. Anglers can still harvest 2 lingcod per day.

As of July 1, anglers may keep one cabezon (minimum length of 16 inches) as part of their 5 fish general marine fish daily bag limit.

Anglers may also choose to fish the offshore longleader fishery outside of the 40-fathom regulatory line, which is open year-round. The longleader fishery has a daily bag limit of 10 fish made of yellowtail, widow, canary, blue, deacon, redstripe, greenstripe, silvergray, chillipepper, and bocaccio rockfish. No other groundfish are allowed and offshore longleader fishing trips cannot be combined with traditional bottomfish, flatfish or halibut trips. Find information about a longleader setup here.

Ocean Chinook salmon fishing remains open from Cape Falcon to Humbug Mountain through Oct. 31. The non-selective coho season from Cape Falcon to Humbug Mountain closed on September 30. 

Starting on Sept. 13, the Central Coast Subarea will be open 7 days per week for All Depth Halibut. The daily bag limit will be increased to 2 Pacific Halibut per day. Anglers may also retain bottomfish and halibut on the same trip. As of Oct. 3, there is 44 percent of the quota remaining. 

Starting on Sept.13, halibut anglers in the Southern Oregon Coast Subarea will be able to harvest 2 Pacific halibut per day.  As of Oct. 3, there is 34 percent of the quota remaining. 

There are still a few surfperch anglers having success fishing the southern Oregon beaches. Anglers have been catching surfperch when the ocean swells are calmer, using sand shrimp, mole crabs or artificial sand worms. Last updated 10/13/21.

2021 sport bottomfish seasons

PISTOL RIVER: Chinook, trout

Temporary rule changes for wild adult Chinook are now in place Aug. 31-Dec. 31. One wild adult Chinook per day and two total for this time period. All other zone regulations still apply. Last updated 10/6/21.

PLAT I RESERVOIR: bass, trout

No recent reports from Plat I. Temperatures are cooling, but the bass should still be biting.

Plat I has some of the best disabled access in the area. Last updated 10/13/21

POWERS POND: rainbow trout

Powers Pond is schedule to be stocked this week with fall rainbow trout. Anglers should have success catching trout on spoons/spinner or by fishing PowerBait. Last updated 10/13/21.

ROGUE RIVER

Rogue River, lower: Chinook, summer steelhead/half-pounders, hatchery coho

The Huntley Park seining season is coming to a close at the end of October. Counts from this project will continue to be updated every two weeks until the end of the month and can be found here.

ODFW tracks hatchery survival and other important information through Coded Wire Tag returns.  Anglers with hatchery catch are encouraged to return adipose fin-clipped Chinook snouts to ODFW. A snout box with instructions is located inside the fish cleaning station in the port near the boat ramp. Thank you for your participation. Last updated 10/6/21.

Rogue River, middle: Chinook salmon, summer steelhead, rainbow trout

From Sept. 1 through Oct. 31, within the wild and scenic section from Foster Creek upstream to Whiskey Creek, only artificial flies and lures are allowed. No bait is allowed in that reach.

There’s about one week left of the Chinook season above Hog Creek boat ramp, upstream to Fishers Ferry, as the fishery closes on Oct, 1. 

Chinook fishing is now closed upstream of Hog Creek boat ramp through the remainder of the year. 

Summer Steelhead fishing has been pretty good. Steelhead are being caught all the way from Gold Hill to Galice. The waters around Galice can be a great fishing destination this time of year. There is much public land and open water in this area, and riffles are looking nice. Only hatchery steelhead and hatchery trout may be harvested. Up to 2 hatchery steelhead as part of the daily combined salmon/steelhead bag limit and 5 hatchery trout may be retained.

Locally-owned and operated tackle and fly shops in Grants Pass have excellent gear and very fresh bait, local flies and knowledge that is specific to the Rogue and to your particular technique. Go check them out and offer them support during this time.

It is illegal to snag and keep a snagged fish, whether it’s wild or hatchery! Report violations to Oregon State Police by calling *OSP.

Flows are steady at 1250 cfs and are forecast to remain this way for at least another week. bumped up to nearly 1650 cfs over the weekend but have quickly dropped back down to a steady 1050 cfs in Grants Pass. This should have gotten fish moving pretty well.  Temperatures have dipped in the high 40s and turbidity 2 NTU. 

For those interested in checking conditions before getting on the river, the City of Grants Pass Water Division’s website offers information on river conditions at Grants Pass as well as a link to a river camera. Anglers can check all the USGS gaging stations, which have the most current temperatures and river flows here. Last updated 10/13/21.

Rogue River, upper: summer steelhead, spring Chinook, rainbow trout, cutthroat trout

Chinook fishing is closed from Fishers Ferry upstream to Cole Rivers Hatchery through the end of the year.

Beginning Sept. 1 through Oct. 31, all fishing gear from Fishers Ferry to Cole Rivers hatchery is restricted to artificial flies, with no added weights except for a bubble or similar floating device attached to the line. No bait is allowed. After Nov. 1, from Fishers Ferry boat ramp, upstream to Shady Cove Boat ramp, artificial flies and lures are allowed, but no bait.  On Nov. 1, upstream of Shady Cove boat Ramp to Cole Rivers Hatchery, bait can again be used.  Anti-snagging gear restrictions are in place for the Hatchery Hole (Cole Rivers Hatchery Blocker Dam to 1200 feet downstream): no more than 1 hook and a leader length less than 6 feet.

Anglers are catching trout and summer steelhead. Anglers can only retain hatchery trout (5 per day) and hatchery steelhead. Summer steelhead season appears better than last year and should only improve through September and into October. Anglers are encouraged to be mindful of spawning spring Chinook salmon and avoid disturbing these fish as they spawn over the next month.

Especially with the extremely low flows, boat anglers are encouraged to fish below Shady Cove, and preferably Dodge Bridge as drift boats and rafts may drag bottom in some shallow riffles. Be mindful of redds (salmon nests) that can be found along river margins and at tailouts from McGregor Park all the way down to the old Gold Ray Dam site. River flows will be lower than normal as well, so drift boats and rafts may drag bottom in places. Please watch for redds or avoid spawning congregations as much as possible.

As of Oct. 6, 10 straggling spring Chinook entered the hatchery ladder, bringing this year’s total to 2,228 fish. Fish will continue to trickle in for the next month or so, but only adipose fin clipped fish will be counted as spring Chinook. Unmarked fish are more than likely fall Chinook and will be counted as so. There is no fall Chinook hatchery program at Cole Rivers Hatchery. The first coho of the year also entered the hatchery ladder

Also as of Oct. 6, 49 fresh summer steelhead also entered the ladder bringing the total to 1,473 fish for the year. This is roughly a bit under 50 percent of the run if long-term averages persist. Temperatures are in upper 40s in the upper river and this has slowed migration quite a bit. 

Flows coming out of William L. Jess Dam should be leveled off and are extremely low and will remain so for the remainder of the fall. Only tributary inputs will raise the upper Rogue flows. This is to facilitate water saving in the reservoir and spring Chinook rearing in the gravel. Currently the discharge from the dam is 950 cfs (with 685 cfs inflow). River temperatures in the upper river are 45 degrees.

Locally-owned and operated tackle and fly shops in Medford, Shady Cove, and Ashland have excellent gear and very fresh bait, local flies and knowledge that is specific to the Rogue and to your particular technique. Go check them out and offer them your support.

Rogue River, above Lost Creek Reservoir: trout

All summer the Rogue above Lost Creek received 3,500 rainbow trout weekly. Stocking is over for the year, but there should still be rainbow trout available to target from Prospect to Minnehaha Creek. Fall weather should still be conducive to trout angling and crowds should be greatly diminished with summer over. 

The Rogue and tributaries above Lost Creek Reservoir remain open year-round, with a retention limit of 5 trout. Stocked trout in this reach are not fin-clipped. There are also residential cutthroat and brown trout that are periodically hooked by anglers.

Great techniques up here include throwing small Panther Martin spinners or small hooks with a single Pautske fire egg under a bobber. You also can’t go wrong fishing nymphs up here, or nightcrawlers under a bobber.

Flows above Prospect seem to have leveled off and are 290 cfs.The river flow below prospect is approximately 500 cfs. Many reaches in this section of river have bed rock crevices and wading can be tough. However, there are great trails and openings along the river throughout the stocked reach, which provide good access. The river gradient lessens above Farewell Bend toward Minnehaha Creek.

ODOT trip check maintains a camera at Union Creek (OR62), where you can get an idea of weather and smoke levels, or check out the AQI index around Prospect.

The Rogue River Siskiyou National Forest Lands are in extreme fire danger and recently implemented Stage 3 fire restrictions. Only commercial stoves fired by liquid fuel or propane are permitted. All campfires, even in developed recreation sites are now prohibited forest wide. More information on Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest lands can be found on their website or calling the RRSNF office. Last updated 10/13/21.

SAUNDERS LAKE: rainbow trout

Saunders Lake is schedule to be stocked this week with fall rainbow trout. Anglers should have success catching trout on spoons/spinner or by fishing PowerBait.  Last updated 10/13/21.

SIXES RIVER: Chinook, trout

Temporary low water fishing closure will start Oct. 1 in the lower river. Fishing will be temporarily closed in the section between Crystal Creek downstream to the Hughes House boat ramp. This closure will be lifted after the arrival of significant rain and increased river flows. Anglers may find some early run success near the mouth of the river. One wild adult Chinook per day and 10 per year may be harvested. Please note that the Sixes River bag limit is part of an aggregate limit with Floras Creek and New River. See tables at the top of this zone update for details. Last updated 10/6/21.

SMITH RIVER, Umpqua: Chinook, striped bass

The Smith is open for Chinook fishing up the head of tide at Spencer Cr. Fish likely have moved upriver with last week’s rain. Anglers are reminded that only 1 wild adult Chinook may be kept per day and five for the year. Trout season closed as usual on Sept. 16. This also means the river and tributaries above Spencer Creek are closed to all fishing.

Some anglers are finding some nice-size striped bass. There is no limit on the number of bass you can keep in the Smith including “stripers.”

The Smith sees only light pressure for most of the season and can provide a great experience for anglers looking to get away from the crowds. Last updated 10/13/21.

SPALDING MILL POND: rainbow trout

Spalding Mill Pond is a small 3-acre lake, with a small campground, ADA accessible trail and restroom. It received 1,200 rainbow trout in May. Water temperatures should be significantly dropping out here, and anglers may catch a few trout. In late September, rainbow trout fingerlings will be stocked for overwintering. This pond is outside of Selma and within the Forest Service Wild Rivers Ranger District. The USFS Wild Rivers Ranger District has implemented extreme fire danger with level 2 restrictions in place. More information can be found on the USFS website Last updated 9/15/21.

TENMILE LAKES/TENMILE CREEK:  largemouth bass, trout, yellow perch, coho salmon

Most largemouth bass are in deeper water along hard bottom points in Tenmile Lakes.  Some bass can still be found in shallower water and around boat houses and other structure. During the middle of the day bass can be caught on crankbaits, jigs and plastic worms/stickbaits by fishing in the shade or deeper water. The lake level is low this time of the year, so many submerged logs are out of the water.

Fishing for yellow perch has been good for anglers fishing mud flats in 15-20 feet of water.  Yellow perch will bite on worms or jigs tipped with a worm fished near the bottom.

The wild coho salmon fishery opened on Tenmile Lakes on Oct. 1. The lake level is still very low and there are no reports of coho in the lakes yet. Anglers are allowed to harvest 1 wild coho per day and have up to 5 for the season in aggregate with all the other coastal wild coho seasons.

Trout fishing in the lakes will pick up as the water temperatures cool down. Trout anglers will want to concentrate their fishing in the deeper water. 

Trout fishing in streams remains open through Oct. 31. Anglers can now use bait in all streams. Last updated 10/13/21.

UMPQUA HIKE-IN LAKES AND FOREBAYS: trout

Due to the multiple fires, access to Big Twin, Bullpup, Fuller, Cliff and Buckeye lakes is restricted or closed. Check with the Forest Service before making the trip. You can check the latest fire closure here. This can be a great time of year to check out the lakes before they are buried in snow.

Clearwater Forebay Two can be a great place to fish with brook trout and rainbow available.

Anglers fishing the high lakes in the Umpqua District are encouraged to e-mail fishing reports. Last updated 10/13/21

UMPQUA RIVER, MAINSTEM: bass, trout, Chinook

Bass fishing continues to be good throughout the basin.

Chinook fishing success seemed to be moderate, and some have likely started moving upriver to spawn. The Mainstem is restricted to one wild adult Chinook per day and five per year. There is no retention of wild coho in the Umpqua this year. Please practice good catch-and-release techniques with fish that are not retained.

Trout fishing is open. Last updated 9/22/21.

UMPQUA RIVER, NORTH: trout (Closed from the mouth to Soda Springs)

The North Umpqua and its tributaries from the mouth of the marker below Soda Springs Dam are now closed to all fishing through Nov. 30. This closure is in response to the lowest return of summer steelhead on record. Trout fishing is open year-round upstream of Slide Creek Dam and in tributaries in this section.

Learn more about this closure. Last updated 9/15/21.

UMPQUA RIVER, SOUTH: CLOSED

The South closes every year from Sept. 16 through Nov. 30 to protect spawning Chinook. The river reopens for steelhead on Dec. 1. Last updated 9/15/21.

WILLOW LAKE: rainbow trout, largemouth bass, black crappie, brown bullhead, yellow perch

Water levels in Willow continue to drop as irrigation shutdowns in other reservoirs have switched things over to Willow Lake. The reservoir is 41 percent full and the improved boat ramp is no longer usable, but personal watercraft such as kayaks and float tubes are able to find areas to launch. There may be a dirt ramp entrance within the campground near the host that is available but ODFW district staff have not confirmed this as of the writing of this update.

Trout, bass, crappie and perch are most prevalent here. Fishing from shore will likely produce plenty of perch and bluegill. Anglers targeting deeper water on the bank opposite the boat ramp by trolling will have greater success with rainbow trout. No trout have been stocked since late spring, but there should be fish still present.

Campgrounds at Willow Lake are closed for the 2021 season. Day use is open, but fees are collected. A yearly Jackson County Park pass are also available for $40, but expires at the end of the year. For more information please visit the Jackson County Parks website.

Anglers encountering illegally introduced yellow perch are always encouraged to take as many of these as they want. This illegal introduction has only resulted in stunted perch and impacts to the bass and trout fishery in this lake and numerous others around the Southwest District. Anglers are reminded that using live fish as bait is prohibited. If you see someone transporting live fish from or into a water body, please get a photo and/or call OSP with this information. Last updated 10/13/21. 

WINCHUCK RIVER: Chinook, trout

Trout fishing is best in the early morning or late in the day when fish are more active. Temporary rule changes for wild adult Chinook are now in place Aug 31-Dec 31. One wild adult Chinook per day and two total for this time period. All other zone regulations still apply. Last updated 10/6/21.
