Fishing for rainbow trout, cutthroat trout and yellow perch at Blackfoot Reservoir in Idaho.

Surrounded by mountains in southeast Idaho, Blackfoot Reservoir is a 16,900-acre lake 5 miles southwest of Wayan, ID. Anglers preferring to fish from the bank have a lot of options as a fair amount of the 60 miles of shoreline is reasonably accessible. Ice fishing is available during winter when ice conditions allow, as the lake is at an elevation 6,100 feet above sea level. Boating is available to pleasure and fishing boats with no HP restrictions. Numerous annual stockings of rainbow trout keep this a popular fishing destination. Cutthroat trout and yellow perch are also available. Cedar Bay Marina RV Park and Cafe is a good place to start as they offer camping, lodging, dining, a boat launch and a store with camping and fishing supplies. Several other boat launch ramps are located around the lake, and there are plenty of places to portage a kayak or canoe.
