When steelhead fishing slows around the state, it’s just getting started at Whale Rock Reservoir. According to officials, no more than 300 to 400 fishermen visit the lake each year because boats aren’t allowed and bass are nowhere to be found. There’s nothing but steelhead here thanks to an enhancement project that began at the reservoir in 1992, offsetting the ecological impact the dam had on Old and Cottontail creeks. This fly-fishing chapter describes the "where, when, and how" for fishing in this area. It includes a full-page map and information on the known hatches, suggested equipment to use, the best flies to use, season, limits, nearby accommodations, and camping.
