Guide To Fishing At Palisades Reservoir
AKA: Palisades Lake
Nestled in a beautiful mountain setting, Palisades Reservoir is a trout anglers dream. At an elevation 5,600 feet above sea level, this 16,000-acre lake provides fishing opportunities year round.
Ice fishing in winter, fishing from a boat in summer and bank fishing the remainder of the year makes this an ideal trout fishing destination. This gem is located in the southeast part of the state, on the Wyoming-Idaho border, 5 miles southeast of Irwin, ID. 70 miles of shoreline provide plenty of places to wet a line, from shore or from a boat. The boat launches serve pleasure and fishing boats with no HP restrictions. Several campgrounds and RV parks are available during the season.
