Starvation Reservoir

Fishing report

  • Rating: Fair
  • Conditions: Anglers report fair fishing for rainbows and walleyes, although most anglers were chased off by recent high winds. Baits are working well, especially from the shore. Try smaller, slow-moving presentations for rainbows and a larger presentation for walleyes. If you're walleye fishing, keep your bait/lure on the bottom or cast deep into the rocks. Most of the walleyes are small or in the 24-inch range, and you can help the fishery by taking them home. The reservoir is almost full.
