Fishing has been good. Try powerbait, salmon eggs, spinners, spoons, worms and marshmallows. Kokanee are being caught using dodgers, pop gear and spinners .

About

A long, narrow reservoir created by one of the oldest dams in Idaho built in 1911. This reservoir has approximately 3,150 acres of surface water and limited access along 60 miles of often steep, rocky shoreline.

The age of the reservoir has allowed substantial fish populations to adjust to the slowing flow of water from the North and South Forks of the Boise River, along with dozens of smaller tributaries.

Many anglers take boats up the reservoir and then hike into the drainages of the smaller streams to fly

fish for trout.

A large variety of fish inhabit the reservoir including perch, whitefish, Kokanee, smallmouth bass, rainbow trout, bull trout, and red band trout. Occasionally Chinook salmon and northern pike have been caught.



Techniques & Tips

Arrowrock Dam was built for irrigation, and the rocky inaccessible shoreline of the lake makes shore fishing limited.

The preferred method is to find an access area and use a boat, kayak, or float tube to work the water.

Float tube fishing is popular with both flyfishing and spin casting styles.

Trout will hit on spinners, spoons, and a variety of flies. Roostertails, Mepps, and smaller (size 2 or 3) Blue Fox spinners work on sunny days when the water is clear.

Dry flies worked with either a fly rod or a clear bobber with a light line as a leader work through the warmer months when insects are hatching.

Trolling is popular with spoons, spinners, and cowbell rigs along the deeper channels of the reservoir.
