Rockport Reservoir

Fishing report

  • Rating: Good
  • Conditions: Trout fishing slowed down when water temperatures climbed into the mid-70s, but early-morning anglers are still picking up a few rainbows and some nice browns. Fishing below the dam remains good. One angler landed several nice fish, including a 22-inch rainbow! The hottest fishing is for smallmouth bass. Anglers are catching good numbers of bass that range from 10 to 15 inches long. Focus on rocky shorelines and use soft plastics or worms. Many thanks to Park Manager Joe Donnell for the report.
