All boat ramps are now open as the USFS concessionaire has opened Hart-tish park.  Campground reservations for Hart-tish Park at Applegate Lake are available on Recreation.gov. French Gulch and Copper do not have docks. 

Bait is allowed and 5 trout per day, year-round, in the reservoir. The tributary streams above the reservoir are also open year-round, with bait allowed, but only 2 trout per day.

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 introduced and stunted yellow perch with no limit. Bass and bluegill are also in these lakes.

The reservoir is at 90 percent capacity, with an elevation of 1,979.9 ft. Surface temperature is 64 degrees Fahrenheit. 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.
