Hagg Lake Opens for Trout Fishing Tomorrow!

Hagg Lake in Washington County will be open for the trout fishing season starting tomorrow. The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife has stocked the lake with 18,000 rainbow trout and 120 larger brood trout (these fish range from 12 - 20 pounds!).

Hagg Lake is located 25 miles southwest of Portland. This 1,200 acre reservoir has an average depth of 51 feet. The deepest part of the lake is 110 feet deep.

In addition to the lake being open for anglers, KUIK Talk Radio will be hosting the annual opening day Bi Mart Lake Hagg Fishing Derby on Saturday. Two hundred specially marked trout have been planted in the lake for the derby. Catch one and you'll win a prize!

The Lake Hagg Fishing Derby will run from 6 a.m. til 2 p.m. Prizes will be awarded for the longest trout, heaviest trout, ugliest trout, oldest angler, and the first to catch their limit! There NO entry fee!
