Millsite Reservoir & State Park

Fishing report

  • Rating: Good
  • Conditions: On April 8, Calvin Black and Dan Keller fished from a boat along the face of the dam in 20 to 30 feet of water. Once they located fish with a graph, fishing was excellent. PowerBait worked better than jigs, spinners, or tube jigs tipped with chub meat. They had the most success using chartreuse PowerBait with glitter. Rainbow trout averaged 14–16 inches and weighed between one and two pounds. Splake ranged from 15 to 17 inches long and weighed a little more than a pound.
