The lake is extremely low, and there is no recent reports of trout.Anglers who are patient and studious will be able to pick up some bass fishing smaller keitech swimbaits, and dragging finesse rigs and jigs if the water has some color.

About

A small lake formed by an 87-foot high earthen dam on Dry Creek. The 216-acre lake fluctuates up to 25 feet in depth throughout the season, creating a warm water lake at an elevation of 1500 feet 13 miles from Medford, Oregon.

The reservoir is fed by Dry Creek and by an average annual rainfall of 23 inches. The warmer temperature allows bluegill, catfish, largemouth bass, crappie, and smallmouth bass to thrive.

The lake is surrounded by three miles of easy access shoreline and a maximum depth of 72 feet.



Techniques & Tips

Warmwater fishing techniques work in this lake. Bluegill and crappie will strike on worms, nightcrawlers, wax worms, and sometimes Powerbait using a number 10 or smaller hook. Crappie will strike on jigs with red spinners or even on red yarn wrapped around a hook.

Largemouth and smallmouth bass hit plastic rooms, surface poppers, buzz baits, and crankbaits. The best area for bass is in the shallow water around the shoreline of the lake.

Catfish are attracted to doughballs, blood bait, chicken livers, chunks of beef liver, and home-concocted stink bait dropped to the bottom with heavy crimped sinkers.
