Echo Reservoir

Fishing report

  • Rating: Good
  • Conditions: Anglers report good fishing for 15- to 19-inch rainbow trout from the shore using PowerBait in the morning and evening. Fish are in the deeper areas of the lake, so try fishing the steep shores. For smallmouth bass, try using light-colored plastic lures around the beach or the boat ramp.
