Fish Lake

Area Status: Closed

Fish Lake is located in the southwestern portion of the Orleans Ranger District. As one of the most popular recreational areas on the District, Fish Lake offers camping, fishing and hiking on over 5 miles of trails that link Fish Lake with Red Mountain and Blue Lakes. The 0.6 mile long lake is over 30 feet deep and stocked with Rainbow trout throughout the season. The lake also offers smallmouth bass, and blue gill. For those using water craft there is a cement boat ramp and parking area on the northern end. Outboard motors are not allowed on the lake. Due to the presence of Port-Orford-cedar root disease, the lake and campground are closed during the wet weather months.
