Henry Hagg Lake stocked with 18,000 trout:
Lake opens to fishing this Saturday
March 4, 2010


CLACKAMAS, Ore. – Henry Hagg Lake in Washington County opens to fishing this weekend and over 18,000 rainbow trout have been stocked in time for opening day.

According to Tom Murtagh, fish biologist with the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, things are coming together for a great weekend of fishing.

“There will be lots of fish, water conditions are nearly perfect, they’re predicting good weather,” he said. “And it’s only a 45-minute drive from Portland.”

In addition to thousands of legal-sized trout stocked recently, several hundred brood trout weighing between 5 and 15 pounds were stocked last fall and many are still around.

Henry Hagg Lake is in Washington County near Gaston, Ore. The 1,100-acre lake boasts miles of shoreline access as well as two boat ramps. The park opens at 5 a.m. on Saturday, March 6, and visitors need to purchase a daily or season pass to use the boat ramps and parking lots.
