Strawberry Reservoir

Image of Strawberry Reservoir

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.

Latest fishing report

Anglers report that fishing is still fairly good. Troll near shore using tube jibs tipped with bait. When fishing from shore, rely on traditional methods: spinner baits, PowerBait, nightcrawler and a worm. Trevor Bradshaw was the lucky winner of the pontoon boat for the 2016 Strawberry Bay Marina Tagged Fishing Contest. He caught a red-tagged rainbow near Renegade using lime twist PowerBait. Nice job, Trevor! The annual tagged fish contest is a great incentive to get the family outdoors. Thank you to all the participants and donators involved in the event. (Last updated 11-17-2016)
