This 1,200-acre reservoir is nestled in the foothills of the Coast Range, just west of Forest Grove. Hagg Lake has long been a favorite still- water retreat for Multnomah and Washington county residents. It reaches depths of over 100 feet and is well-stocked with rainbow trout, some reaching 7 pounds. Smallmouth bass and brown bullhead are also present. Many a young angler has landed his or her first fish at Hagg Lake! There are two boat launches on the lake, and several picnic grounds. If the fish aren’t biting, Hagg Lake also offers great waterskiing, personal watercraft riding and other boating pursuits. It’s also surrounded by 15 miles of biking and hiking trails, where you might encounter the elk, deer, coyote or even bobcat that call these woods home. The mixture of habitats around Hagg Lake attracts a variety of bird life, including nesting pairs of bald eagles and ospreys.
