Brownlee Reservoir stretches for over 50 miles along the Idaho and Oregon border. The reservoir encompasses over 15,000 acres in the Hells Canyon area. The reservoir is created by the Brownlee dam which is operated by Idaho Power. The reservoir can be fished from boat with an Idaho or Oregon license. Shore fisherman will need a license for the state in which they are fishing. The reservoir is one of the most fished bodies of water in all of Idaho. This warm water holds many species including smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, rainbow trout, sturgeon, and several species of catfish.
