Lake Harriet is a great little spot for fishing and camping. This 22-acre reservoir, which stores water for PGE’s Oak Grove Hydroelectric Project was created shortly after the turn of the century when a concrete dam was built across the Oak Grove Fork of the Clackamas River. Harriet is sheltered from the wind in a narrow, heavily timbered canyon. Because of it's small size, Harriet is a perfect place for first-timers to try out a new float tube or pontoon boat. A small, 10-site campground is located at the head of the lake. Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife normally stocks more than 10,000 rainbow trout in Harriet annually. There are monthly stockings starting in Mid-April, and they continue through August. This often results in easy, unchallenging fly fishing. In addition there are self sustaining populations of both cutthroat and brown trout which spawn in the Oak Grove Fork of the Clackamas River. These populations of wild trout are fairly small, but some of the brown trout can grow to more than 20-inches.
