Lakes & Reservoirs

Ridgeway Reservoir Sponsored by

Water Condition
Water Temperature  

Conditions : Ridgway Reservoir - The reservoir is at 82.09 percent capacity and the water level is dropping.The most recent stocking of the reservoir, with 2,700 catchable rainbow trout, occurred on July 14. Both shore fisherman and boaters are experiencing very good fishing for stocker-sized rainbows (8"-14") with a few larger fish (18"-22") being caught. The catch is mostly rainbows, but there have been some bigger browns and smallmouth bass. Shore fishermen are doing well along Dallas Creek day-use area and Mears Bay shorelines. Shore fisherman should try gold kastmasters, green and rainbow PowerBait, or worms off the bottom. Boat fishermen are having luck with gold pop-gear and black/silver sinking rapalas near the dam and around the opening to Mears Bay. Bag and size limits have been removed for smallmouth bass in Ridgway Reservoir. Fishermen are encouraged to take smallmouth from the reservoir to protect the rainbow and brown trout fisheries.
