August 22nd, 2017 - Fishing is still going strong. There is a little moss developing and it has slowed down at times during the day, but we are still hearing a good response from most of the customers that come in. Power Bait and Worms are still the easiest baits. Gold and Silver Lures are also working well.
July 19th, 2017 - Fishing has been good. Most of the campgrounds are full, but the fish are still jumping. Stocked and waiting for you. Spinners and Rapalas for the browns. Fish with Bait to catch the rainbows.

September 5, 2012 - Fishing has slowed down for Little Reservoir. The moss has been taking over the lake because of warm weather and pollution from cabins above the reservoir. Bait fishing isn't too bad, but we recommend taking the time to drive to Kent's, Anderson Meadow or Lebaron... All three have been doing well.
May 22, 2012 - Little Reservoir was stocked last week and the fishing has been really good. I took some friends up and we caught ten fish in just over an hour. Great place to take the kids. Panther Martin's, Jakes Lures and Bait fishing seeming to be the right combination for these fish.
If you are going after the browns, make sure and have some Rapala's on hand.
April 18th, 2012 - Little Reservoir is now open! As of April 16th, the ice has melted enough for fishing. The road is accessible and a majority of ice has melted over the last 4 or 5 days. Fishing reports have been great! Very few people have been up there so far.
Some Browns have been caught and a few of decent size. Fishing should be amazing for the next few weeks as the fish are anxious to see the sun.
Recommended: Rapala's, Spinners, Lures, Live Bait, Power Bait (Silver and Gold in lures and spinners. Rainbow or Brown trout Rapalas)
