Cleveland Reservoir

Latest fishing report

The water level is low at Cleveland Reservoir, but anglers are still having success catching trout, both from the shore and out on the water. Fly anglers have been using medium- and fast-sinking line with size 6 and 8 bead-headed lures. These lures include woolly buggers in brown/orange, brown or green leeches, and black/green soft hackle flies. Anglers have also had a lot of success catching rainbow trout while trolling with pop gear or bait fishing from shore. The water level at Cleveland Reservoir is being drawn down for irrigation needs, so the DWR has raised the daily bag limit and possession limit to eight trout at this waterbody until Jan. 1, 2019. Cleveland Reservoir may soon freeze over, so use caution. (Last update 11-15-18)
