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 27 percent full, with an elevation of 1,917.2 ft. Surface temperatures are in the upper 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.
