Brownlee Reservoir In Idaho

Brownlee Reservoir, Idaho

Boating, camping and fishing.

Spanning over 50 miles of the Snake River, Brownlee Reservoir is an 11,000-acre boating and fishing paradise along the Idaho-Oregon state line. This waterway has no motor HP restrictions and is a great destination for pleasure boats, kayaks, canoes and all types of fishing boats. Much of the 190 miles of shoreline is not accessible due to steep mountain terrain and no roads. Steck Park and Woodhead Park are the primary access points from the Idaho side. Camping, boat ramps and other amenities are available in both areas. The lake is situated at an elevation of just over 2,000 feet above sea level, offering a wide variety of both warm-water and cold-water fish species. Bass, crappie, catfish, trout and sunfish all reside here.
