Elevenmile Reservoir is the heart of South Park fishing. This amazing fishery can challenge anglers mostly because it is so big and it can be hard to locate fish. The reservoir has rainbow trout, brown trout, cutthroat trout, kokanee salmon, carp, and northern pike. The average fish caught is around 16 inches but because of the size and depth of the reservoir combined with how abundant nutrients are, Elevenmile can grow very large trout and pike. There are great facilities including a shower at the main office for campers.
Accessibility: Open year round and operates 24 hours a day.
