Jackson Meadows Reservoir is a California Fishing spot. Jackson Meadows Reservoir is located in Nevada County in the State of California. Jackson Meadows Reservoir has the latitude and longitude (39.50227, -120.553). Jackson Meadow Reservoir receives a good number of 10- to 12-inch rainbow trout. In addition, rainbow- and brown-trout fingerlings are also trucked in.
Plants are usually made in early summer, after ice-out has occurred and snowplows have cleared the access road. Standard trolling techniques and shoreline bait dunking are popular, with okay results. The best fishing occurs in late June, when limits are common for trollers. Fishing slows gradually after that, with the early-morning anglers having the best chance of getting a few fish for the frying pan.
Campers use Jackson Meadow Reservoir as headquarters for multiday trips into this many-faceted mountain region. The lake is at 6,000 feet in a pretty area featuring forests, meadows, and the trademark granite of the Sierra Nevada. For side trips, there are many other lakes in the vicinity, and the trailhead for the Pacific Crest Trail is just to the east, along the access road.
