Deadwood Reservoir is known more for the rough road to the man-made reservoir than for the outstanding fishery it provides. Between the kokanee, cutthroat, fall Chinook and rainbow trout - fishing is usually fast and can also be very exciting due to the big fish that inhabit the reservoir.
The attached photo was recently taken by Mr. Steve Kern of a monster rainbow trout caught by his son, Jack. Note the heavy body. Between zooplankton, freshwater scud, and juvenile kokanee, predatory fish have a smorgass board of option from which to eat.
