Long Park Reservoir

Image of Long Park Reservoir

Mountain reservoir (agricultural draw down by mid-summer) surrounded by lodgepole pine and grasslands. Good wildlife viewing opportunities for elk, deer, moose, birds of prey, small mammals and birds. Surrounding waters have whirling disease. Dry and sterilize waders and other equipment when using this water.

Latest fishing report

Water levels are low in the reservoir. Over the summer, fish surveys showed good numbers of rainbow and brook trout, along with a few tiger trout and grayling. Most fish were consuming chironomids, sow bugs and zooplankton, but larger fish were also consuming smaller fish. Try targeting shallow fish along the shoreline using jigs, spoons and spinners, and if you aren't successful, try changing your lures. (Last update 08-14-18)
