Current reservoir storage is at 60 percent of capacity. The second stocking of approximately 4,700 legal-size and 2,200 trophy-size rainbow trout occurred the week of May 13. 

Anglers usually have good success catching holdover trophy-size trout in the upper reservoir in spring after ice-out.

Construction of the new boat launch surface at the Mason Dam Boat Launch is now complete and the launch has re-opened to public access.  Boaters will find much improved conditions for launching boats.
