Fishing and boating at Big Reservoir are popular activities.

The reservoir’s 5 m.p.h. boat speed limit, two-and-a-quarter miles of shoreline and  campground setting make it a popular destination for campers, anglers, paddlers and windsurfers in the summertime. There are also hiking and bicycling trails and off-road four wheeling opportunities at Big Reservoir.  The water is warm enough in the summertime for swimming.

Big Reservoir is a haven for kayak anglers during the fall, spring and summer. Kayak anglers can look forward to a possible catch of rainbow trout. Locals recommend using spinner baits, black jigs and floating rapalas.
