Fontenelle Dam Fishing Report

6.10.2019

Greetings,

Here’s the latest Fontenelle Dam Fishing Report from the US bureau of Reclamation; Due to increased inflow into Fontenelle Reservoir from spring runoff, releases from Fontenelle Dam will be increased from 3,100 cfs by use of bypass on June 11, 2019 through June 13, 2019 to reach a combined powerplant capacity and bypass releases of 5800 cfs.  The flow increases will definitely disrupt the fishing so please keep in touch with us regarding when the angling opportunities will be favorable.

This is according to the schedule below.
