Guide To Fishing At Jamestown Reservoir
AKA: Jamestown Lake
Sandy beaches, rip-rap rock and lush greenery surround Jamestown Reservoir, a 2,000-acre lake in the central part of the state, at the city of Jamestown. This winding waterway brags of having forty five miles of shoreline to fulfill your water sport fantasies.
Major boat launch ramps include Jamestown Reservoir Marina Boating Access, 5 Mile Corner Boating Access and West Landing Boating Access. Numerous campgrounds, some with RV hookups, are scattered throughout the area. Fishing enthusiasts come searching for the walleye, crappie, perch and pike that roam these waters. Many areas around the boat landings, the campgrounds and undeveloped land at the north end of the lake provide ample access for fishing from the bank, or just enjoying the day.
