Starvation Reservoir

Fishing report

  • Rating: Good
  • Conditions: The lake is capped with ice eight to 15 inches deep. Fishing has been fair to good for rainbows and fair to excellent for yellow perch. Most of the perch reported are six to eight inches. Look for schools in relatively shallow waters, 10 to 15 feet, or in deeper waters, 20 to 45 feet. A few anglers report that perch, down deep, are larger, but they don't start hitting until near or after dark.
