Strawberry Reservoir

Fishing report

  • Rating: Good
  • Conditions: All docks have been removed at the marina and at Renegade, and one courtesy dock will be removed from the marina soon. Try searching for schools of fish. Mid-morning fishing is the best. Shoreline anglers have had success with spinners, white woolly buggers and white tube jigs tipped with chub meat. Also try tipping the jigs with salmon eggs if you're vertically jigging. The reservoir is 72 percent full and water temperatures are in the high 40s.

  • 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.
