Nilan Reservoir Professional Review and Guide

"Located approximately 8 miles west of Augusta in Lewis and Clark County, Nilan Reservoir is a highly popular year-round fishing hole for refugees from nearby Great Falls and Helena. This 500-acre prairie reservoir, which is reached by county road, provides not only recreational opportunities but also irrigation storage for neighboring farms. Because of this multiple use, recreationists should be prepared for late summer draw-down and the resulting loss of fishing and other recreational opportunities.

Because Nilan is a prairie reservoir like its neighbor, Pishkun Reservoir, it also serves as a stop-over site for migrating waterfowl of the Central Flyway. In addition to the spectacular scenery of the Rocky Mountain Front, the nearby Lewis and Clark National Forest also provides something more immediate for visitors: public campgrounds. Another public campground is located about 8 miles north of the reservoir."
