Guide To Fishing At Crane Creek Reservoir
AKA: Crane Creek Lake
Isolated in the Idaho wild, Crane Creek Reservoir is worth the inconvenience to fish for big crappie, largemouth bass, catfish and sunfish. This 2,300-acre lake in the west-central part of the state, 7 miles southeast of Midvale, has over 15 miles of shoreline.
While there are no formal campgrounds, there are plenty of areas suitable for camping and fishing at the lake. There is a boat launch ramp, but virtually no other facilities. The lack of amenities and campgrounds leads to reduced fishing pressure, which enhances the prospects of those who do wet a line.
