Echo Reservoir

Fishing report

  • Rating: Fair
  • Conditions: Angling pressure was pretty light this week. Anglers have been fairly successful catching trout and perch at various depths throughout the water column. Try using traditional jigs tipped with wax worms or perch meat just off the bottom or just a few feet under the ice. There is still a layer of slush and snow on top of good ice.
