Yuba Reservoir & State Park

Fishing report

  • Rating: Fair
  • Conditions: Because of low water levels, you can no longer launch a boat on the Painted Rocks side of the reservoir. The Oasis boat ramp has deeper water. Anglers report slow to fair fishing for walleye and pike. To fish for pike, use small fish-imitating lures (or even flies) in 5 to 15 feet of water. Please keep in mind that there is a fish-consumption advisory for walleye and northern pike in Yuba.
