Ridgeway Reservoir Sponsored by
Date 17-Jan-21
Water Condition
Water Temperature  

Conditions : Ridgway Reservoir - As of 1/15/2021, park staff report ice cover is around structures like the marina and buoy field. The ice is thin and variable with some spots holding 4 inches. With air temperatures in the 40’s, use extreme caution as ice conditions can change rapidly. PowerBait and worms have been working well and there has been little fishing pressure so far this season. Pa-Co-Chu-Puk, the ponds have light and variable ice cover, caution is advised. The river is a fly/lure only section and fishing is reported decent with small nymph patterns in black, red and natural. The pressure has been high with sometimes as many as twenty vehicles still arriving much line in the summer. Be prepared to fish really light fluorocarbon tippets to avoid spooking wary fish.
