Idaho Fish Report
Agate Lake is still hovering around 10 percent capacity, but slowly filling
by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
Agate Lake is still hovering around 10 percent capacity, but slowly filling. The boat ramp is usable for small vessels but personal watercraft are probably easiest to launch. Surface temperatures are pretty chilly and fishing is likely pretty slow.
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.
