The reservoir was stocked with 3,000 rainbow trout the week of March 18. This is an excellent destination for kids out on spring break. There have also been a few hybrid bass caught with bait two weeks ago. The reservoir has been drawn down about 10 feet for routine yearly maintenance. Small boats shouldn’t have a problem launching, but larger boats may have to wait to until mid-April-ish to launch. Bait fishing and trolling both can be productive at this reservoir. People can also do well fly-fishing with leech and minnow imitations.

The new state record hybrid bass (white and striped bass cross) was caught in Ana Reservoir on Dec. 10, 2014. The fish was caught using a Rapala crankbait on 10 lb. test line and measured 31½ inches with a girth of 24 inches. The fish weighed 19 lbs. 12 oz.

Another 16-pound hybrid bass was caught last year and hybrid bass larger than 20-inches are not uncommon. Hybrid bass are targeted successfully using crank baits and fishing bait along the bottom.
