Modesto Reservoir is a California Fishing spot. Modesto Reservoir is located in Stanislaus County in the State of California. Modesto Reservoir has the latitude and longitude (37.66785, -120.65904) and the altitude is 207 feet.
Modesto Reservoir is a big lake, covering 2,800 acres and with 31 miles of shoreline. It’s set in the hot-weather foothill country, just east of guess where?
Get on the lake early for the largemouth bass, casting Rattletraps along the stickups. Eventually the lure will land practically right on top of a bass, and it will seem as if the lure is whacked almost as soon as it hits the water. Fishing for bass is good, though the fish are often small. The overwhelming majority of fish range 9-13 inches, including the rainbow trout that the Department of Fish and Game stocks here. Maybe in future years, they will get bigger. The best trout fishing is usually had by shore casters using Power Goo near the inlet.
Waterskiing is excellent in the main lake body. Anglers head to the southern shore of the lake, which is loaded with submerged trees and coves and is also protected by a 5-mph speed limit. Before fishing in Modesto Reservoir you should consult with local guides and regulations. Fishermen who have fished at Modesto Reservoir are encouraged to post reviews of the Modesto Reservoir Fish types and any images they want to share with others.
