Fishing is good for crappie and pumpkinseed sunfish. Best fishing for crappie is near the bridge crossing. Fishing for crappie should be excellent when the weather warms again. Fishing bait off the bottom is also productive for brown bullhead catfish.

Past net sampling showed some large yellow perch in the reservoir above the bridge crossing. Highest catch of fish was above Topsy Bridge.

Open and accessible all year. Water levels generally remain very similar and drop as the day progresses as water is released for power generation. There are numerous points of access on the reservoir as most property surrounding the reservoir is BLM or PacifiCorp property. There are three boat ramps on the reservoir. The BLM campground and boat ramp are open.
