 The reservoir is easily accessible off of Highway 89 and is an intriguing retreat for all levels of paddlers. The restRound Valley Reservoir Kayak Fishingriction on swimming, jet and waterskiing reduces the number of visitors to a small handful. The easy paddle around the reservoir’s perimeter provides commanding views of colorful mountains and foothills clothed with pines.

Thick stands of trees along the shoreline provide plenty of shady pullout access locations to relax upon for a spell. NOTE: Several areas of the reservoir had a growth of yellow algae along the shore the numerous times I have been here.

 If you are looking for excellent black bass kayak fishing action, Round Valley Reservoir is the place to go. There’s also an ample amount of quality catfish and bluegill.

This stunning reservoir is a warm water fishery where anglers catch large numbers of largemouth bass, bluegill and channel catfish, but it is the abundance of bluegill that draws most anglers from throughout Northern California to fish here.
