What's there: Trout.
Description: Drought and thirsty irrigators have been hard on this reservoir, but when it has water, it has excellent trout fishing. If it holds water for back-to-back years, it also has big trout. It is too early to tell what will happen this year, but Fish and Game typically stocks it in the spring with catchable rainbow trout.
Getting there: Take I-84 east to Mountain Home and then U.S. 20 to the reservoir.
Drive time: About 1.5 hours.
