Lakes & Reservoirs

Ridgeway Reservoir Sponsored by
Date 30-Aug-16
Water Condition
Water Temperature  

Conditions : Ridgway Reservoir - The reservoir has a current water temperature at 65 degrees. Both shore anglers and boaters are reporting good fishing for stocker-sized rainbows in the 8 to 14 inch range with a few larger fish in the 18 to 22 inch range being caught. The catch is mostly rainbow trout, but there have been some brown trout caught as well. The kokanee bite is picking up in the Dallas Creek area and fish are at 40 feet in the main channel. Downriggers with spoons and dodgers are the way to go. Look for fishing to get a lot better in the weeks to come. Snagging season starts September 1, and the limit is 10 fish. Bass fishing continues to be slow. Try the west side and free access gate south of Dutch Charlie with jigs and spinner baits. Shore fisherman should try gold Kastmasters and green PowerBait, or worms off the bobber for trout. Boat anglers are having luck with countdown Rapalas and spoons near the dam and around the opening to Mears Bay.
