Pineview Reservior

Rating - Good   

Friday, Jan 06 2023
Fishing forecast (December through March): Ice fishing at Pineview Reservoir can be rewarding for the entire family. The panfish populations are doing very well, and anglers should expect to find great numbers of yellow perch, black crappie and bluegill along with an occasional largemouth bass or smallmouth bass this winter. Yellow perch can be found 1 to 2 feet off the bottom in water 10 to 45 feet deep. Tungsten ice flies, small brightly colored UV jigs, vertical jigging lures or spoons tipped with mealworms, waxworms or nightcrawlers should lead to success. Black crappie will generally be suspended 10 to 20 feet off the bottom in or near structure in 20 to 50 feet of water. A combination of dead-sticking and light jigging will entice a strike. A crappies bite can be extremely subtle. To maximize strike detection, use ice rod strike indicators or small floats, and pay close attention to the tightness of your fishing line. An ice safety guide is available here.The U.S. Forest Service is undertaking various construction projects that will improve angler access and on-site amenities, and will also provide long-needed maintenance to permanent structures around the waterbody. While the construction is taking place, access in some areas may be reduced during the 202223 ice fishing season. The following sites will be open to anglers this ice fishing season: Windsurfer/Pineview trailhead, BOR/Salamander, Old Highway, Pelican Beach, Browning Point, Anderson Cove and the pullouts on state Route 39. Cemetery Point will also be open but only a small number of parking spots will be available. New signs this year will indicate areas that are closed to parking. While this might provide some discomfort in the short term, we're confident that once the site upgrades and renovations have been completed, Pineview Reservoir and its on-site amenities will be more enjoyable and accessible than ever before!
