Cleveland Reservoir

Fishing report

  • Rating: Fair
  • Conditions: On November 10, Tom Ogden and Perry Bunderson fished Cleveland from float tubes. In five hours, they caught one cutthroat and nineteen rainbows. The fish were all between 14 and 18 inches and in good shape. They used fast and medium sinking lines with size 6-8 buggers, soft hackle flies and leeches. The best flies were a size 6 bead head leech, #6 bead head soft hackle fly, #8 bead head crystal bugger, and a #6 bead head woolly bugger. The fishing was slow in the morning but picked up after noon. Most of the fish were caught in 10 to 15 feet of water. Tom noticed that none of the other anglers on the water were catching fish, except for one party of anglers in a boat.
