Guide To Fishing At Arrowrock Reservoir
AKA: Arrowrock Lake
Bring the kids, the dog and the neighbors to Arrowrock Reservoir for a great time camping and fishing at this 3,000-acre lake in the southwest part of the state, 12 miles east of Boise, ID. There are over 50 miles of mostly steep shoreline, limiting access for camping and fishing to only a few areas which include the campgrounds and a few primitive areas at the river end of the lake.
The water level fluctuates often, check here for current levels. Most anglers arrive in search of the good fishing for rainbow trout and kokanee salmon, others enjoy the good fishing for bass and perch. Although there are few amenities at the lake, Boise is only 12 miles away. This is a lovely, outdoor setting with the benefit of great fishing.
