Latest fishing report

One angler report from Feb. 10 said that the reservoir was 50 percent covered in ice and all of that ice was unsafe. Do not attempt to walk on any remaining ice. Shore fishing has been fair. One family of anglers reported catching a couple rainbow trout this week. (Last update 02-15-18)
