Strawberry Reservoir

Fishing report

  • Rating: Hot
  • Conditions: The ramp is dry and you should have no problems launching boats all week. The docks have been pulled and restrooms are also closed. The marina road is half snow packed. Anglers are catching fish from the shore by tipping a white tube jig with chub meat/worms. Anglers report good fishing in shallow water during early morning. In the afternoon, fishing is better around 25–28 feet deep. The surface temperature is about 39°F. Jake's Bay has been a fairly popular area among kick boaters. Fishing will remain great before the ice forms in a couple of weeks. Please use caution as ice begins to form.

  • 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.
