At the relatively low elevation of 2,450, C J Strike Reservoir is an ideal lake for both cold-water and warm-water species of fish. Due to this condition the lake has populations of trout, bass, crappie, bluegill, catfish, perch and salmon. This 6,700-acre lake in the southwest part of the state has around 100 miles of shoreline. Situated close to Bruneau and Grandview, ID the lake has multiple access points off highways 51 and 78. When ice conditions are present this is a good destination for catching trout, sunfish and perch by ice fishing - especially on the Bruneau Arm of the lake. Pleasure and fishing boats have no HP restrictions and there several boat ramps from which to choose. Fishing from the bank is popular here with shoreline access available at campgrounds, boat ramps and quite a few places around the lake where the roads veer near the water. Most of these shoreline access areas are also good for portage of a canoe or kayak.
