Indian Tom Reservoir

Contact Info
1312 Fairlane Rd.
Yreka, CA



This reservoir is a medium sized reservoir adjacent to Highway 97, near the Oregon border and just north of the town of Dorris, California. It is a weedy and relatively shallow alkaline lake that supports the only cutthroat trout fishery in the county. Local fisherman jokingly call it "the lake of a thousand casts” because the action can be aggravatingly slow at times. However, the cutthroats run big and are worth the times spent casting.

Additional Details:

Boating is a great way to enjoy fishing the reservoirs, and small boat launching access is provided at most lakes. Please note that motors are limited to electric on some of the lakes, so be sure and check the boating limitations for the lake you wish to visit.

A valid California state fishing license is needed to fish within the National Forest. Licenses are sold at sporting good and other retail stores. For information on fishing times & limits a current state fishing regulation guide is generally available free at these same locations. For more information contact California Department of Fish & Game.
