Fontenelle Dam Fishing Report

6.25.2018

Good Morning! The Fontenelle Dam Fishing Report is still an update given this flow release news this morning. RDA will start guiding at the Fontenelle Dam area after the 4th of July, which tends to bring in a lot of folks to recreate and the river gets very crowded. When you’re ready to get out on this AMAZING fishery please give us a call @ 307-413-0669 to book your slot. With the reservoir being 87% full, this will ensure we’ll have PLENTY of water for the ENTIRE season!

Greetings,
Fontenelle Reservoir is currently at 87% of full capacity with the pool elevation at 6500.60 feet as of June 24, 2018. A reduction in releases from Fontenelle Dam will occur over the coming weeks to allow the reservoir to continue filling.

Releases from Fontenelle Dam will be decreased from 6,000 cfs to 3,000 cfs according to the following schedule:
