Applegate River The Applegate River, a major tributary of the Rogue River, drains a large portion of the eastern Siskiyou Mountains. Its generally-northward course begins among the snowfields and springs along the summit of the Siskiyou Crest; waters on the far side of the Siskiyou Crest drain south into the Klamath River in California. The river's upper-elevation watershed lies entirely within the boundaries of the Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest, where it is a generally steep-gradient, cold-water stream.

Ashland Creek The East and West Forks of Ashland Creek enter Reeder Reservoir south of the City of Ashland, OR. The forks of Ashland Creek are fast-flowing small streams with pocket water and some small pools surrounded by old-growth timber. All fish are wild and average about 6 inches long, due to cold water temperatures and limited productivity. This is rugged cross-country hiking for the serious small stream angler. Please practice a leave-no-trace ethic in this fragile, municipal watershed!
