East Park Reservoir

Fishing report

  • Rating: Fair
  • Conditions: The fishing is spotty — good one day, and slow the next. Try trout baits (worms or artificial baits), flies, brightly colored spoons or crankbaits. If you're bottom fishing, use something to float your bait about 18–24 inches off the bottom. This will keep your worm above the mud and weeds so it's easier for the fish to find. The roads are drying out.
