American Falls Reservoir
American Fall’s fish species include rainbow, brown, and cutthroat trout, crappie, yellow perch, white fish, bullhead and channel catfish. Season open year-round, however the fishery is dependent upon the availability of water to maintain the minimum pool necessary to carry over fish from year to year. Reservoir acre feet and total reservoir capacity and cubic feet/second release rates for rivers below Upper Snake River Basin reservoirs and select river locations are updated daily and graphically provided.
