Strawberry Reservoir

Fishing report

  • Rating: Hot
  • Conditions: Shoreline fishing is slow, but you may find success using a worm and bubble combination, or garlic, salmon egg or peach PowerBait. You may also want to try trolling using worms. You'll find fish in deeper parts of the reservoir, usually at depths from 30 to 40 feet. There is a lot of algae, which should disappear when the weather gets colder. Anglers report that fishing is good from the shore near Soldier Creek and the Narrows. The water temperature is in the low 50s. Fishing is best away from the algae and moss. You should try to cast past it from shore, and to avoid it in your boat or floattube. The best time to fish still seems to be around 10 a.m.

  • Site description: Strawberry Reservoir lies in an open mountain valley with mixed conifer and aspen forests on the upper slopes. The reservoir contains four major fishing zones including the Strawberry Basin, Meadows Basin, the Narrows, and Soldier Creek Basin. Strawberry Valley provides a variety of fishing opportunities from catch and release fishing in the tributaries to trophy cutthroat and rainbow fishing on the reservoir. Most of the fishing pressure and catch occurs from boats. Shoreline fishing is best during the cooler seasons of spring and fall.
