Starvation Reservoir

Brown Trout, Crayfish, Smouthmouth Bass, Walleye

FISH CONSUMPTION ADVISORY

(Dec 9) State parks staff reports no ice. Fly anglers were having success with size 6-8 green and maroon bead head jigs, but report that the fishing is rather slow in the Rabbit Gulch area. Kokanee fishing reopens statewide on Dec. 1. The water temperature is 44 to 45 degrees F and the visibility in the water is about six feet. The reservoir level is still 85 percent full. Biologists are encouraging anglers to harvest their limits of walleye from 10 to 14 inches to help thin out the walleye population and to help the yellow perch population. Also, consider voluntarily releasing crappie to help establish the population in the reservoir.
