Dworshak Reservoir In Idaho

Dworshak Reservoir, Idaho

Boating, camping and fishing.

Extending more than 50 miles, Dworshak Reservoir covers 16,500 surface acres providing excellent boating and fishing lake in northwest ID. Fishing and pleasure boats are welcome as are pontoon boats, canoes and kayaks. The lake has no restrictions on boat motor HP. At an elevation of only 1,600 feet above sea level, the waters are ideal for both warm-water and cold-water fish species. Much of the 175 miles of shoreline is mostly accessible by boat. There are roads surrounding the lake, some primitive, that do provide some access for fishing from the bank. Shoreline fishing is available along sections of the roads that run close to the lake, at both ends of Dent Bridge, and the campgrounds and boat launch ramps. Trout, salmon, steelhead, crappie and bass are favorites here and the lake receives annual stockings of rainbow trout.
