Pertinent Information

The reservoir at maximum capacity covers 109 surface acres with a maximum depth of 40 feet and stores 1,940 acre-feet, with approximately 75% of storage from 0-20 feet. The greatest depth is 40 feet. The outlet gate is roughly eight feet above the reservoir floor, assuring a small minimum pool. As a put-grow-and-take rainbow trout fishery, the trout range from 8 to 10 inches when stocked and can grow to 16-18 inches. Smallmouth and Largemouth Bass fishing is a secondary fishery with naturally reproducing populations providing bass angling for 8-14 inch bass during good water years.
