Fontenelle Dam Fishing Report:

It won’t be too much longer and the water should last the entire season!

Greetings,
Inflows into Fontenelle Reservoir have declined from their likely seasonal highs and are expected to continue decreasing after storm events conclude early this week. Releases from Fontenelle Dam will be reduced over the coming weeks to allow the reservoir to resume filling.

Fontenelle Reservoir is currently at 80% of full capacity with the pool elevation at 6497.10 feet as of June 17, 2018.

Releases from Fontenelle Dam will be decreased from 7,000 cfs to 5,000 cfs according to the following schedule:
