*Lures only reservoir. The reservoir is 185 surface acres at full capacity and is managed at a high, stable level to maintain a natural bass fishery and waterfowl nesting area. Trout experience excellent growth with many over 12 inches. Largemouth bass fishing is slow until water temperatures reach 60°F, which occurs about mid-May and continues through October. Spinner baits and rubber worms are the most commonly used lures for bass. As the water temperature cools, bass fishing declines and rainbow trout fishing picks up. If ice becomes thick enough to support anglers, ice fishing can be good for catching trout. Rainbow trout baits prefer chasing spinners, and flies. Dacey Reservoir has a rough, unimproved boat ramp, which is not suitable for larger trailered boats. Camping is allowed at Dave Deacon Campground located four miles northwest of the reservoir.
