Pardee Reservoir is 300 feet deep. It is home to many species of fish including rainbow trout, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, kokanee landlocked salmon, brown trout, catfish, crappie, bluegill, and various types of sunfish. Crappie, bluegill and sunfish are really great for all anglers because of the quick action, but especially fun to teach kids how to hone in on their fishing skills.
Pardee Reservoir has a large perimeter, which allows for a lot of shore fishing in open areas and small coves accessible by making a short hike. The fishing dock is another great location for fishermen, both young and old alike. There is also a fish cleaning station available at the top of the marina so that you can clean your fish and get them on ice for a great meal after a great day of fishing.
