Jump Off Joe Lake

Contact Info
Ukiah, OR 97880

Description

Cutthroat trout are the only species in the lake. Your best bet here is fly fishing from a float tube or throwing spinners from the shore. Be careful of downed wood in the lake. It looks like a good way to get to where the fish are, but it is unstable and can shift at any time. There’s a great view of the Desolation Creek watershed from the lake. Rock formations on the southwest side of the lake make for great pictures.

Basic Directions

From Ukiah, travel 14 miles south on Highway 395 to the junction with Forest Road 55 (Texas Bar Road). Turn left onto the 55 road and go 1 mile to the junction of the 55 road and the 10 road. Turn right onto the 10 road and go approximately 20 miles to the junction of the 45 road and the 10 road. Turn right onto the 45 road and go approximately 3.5 miles. The trailhead is located on a sharp switchback. Follow the trail approximately .35 miles to the lake. There is no trail around the perimeter of the lake to aid access. Brush at the lakeshore and downed wood in the lake can make fishing difficult.
