Strawberry Reservoir

Fishing report

  • Rating: Fair
  • Conditions: The bite is occurring in the early morning, typically before noon. Shoreline anglers have brought in some nice-sized rainbows near Mud Creek. The Soldier Creek Marina and the Ladders are completely open. The main road to Haws Point is open, but we suggest using a vehicle that has four-wheel drive. Try dark-colored leeches, marabou jigs, jerkbaits or spinners. There may still be a couple of ice slabs lingering, so boaters should be careful. The water temperature is around 41 degrees, and the reservoir is currently 77 percent full.

  • Site description: Strawberry Reservoir lies in an open mountain valley with mixed conifer and aspen forests on the upper slopes. The reservoir contains four major fishing zones including the Strawberry Basin, Meadows Basin, the Narrows, and Soldier Creek Basin. Strawberry Valley provides a variety of fishing opportunities from catch and release fishing in the tributaries to trophy cutthroat and rainbow fishing on the reservoir. Most of the fishing pressure and catch occurs from boats. Shoreline fishing is best during the cooler seasons of spring and fall.
