Photo Use Guidelines

Eureka Reservoir is conveniently located near the town of Choteau, on the edge of the Rocky Mountain Front. The water of the reservoir is remarkably clear and tends to be quite shallow. During late summer, Eureka Reservoir can be become very shallow due to irrigation demands.

Eureka Reservoir is quite small, unlike most other nearby reservoirs. As a result, it is a perfect reservoir for using a inflatable raft, pontoon boat, canoe or inflatable kayak, provided the winds are not too strong.

Eureka Reservoir is stocked annually with rainbow trout, which can run up to several pounds in this lake. As Eureka Reservoir is quite shallow and has clear water, it is one of the better reservoirs for fly fishing, although the wind can at times pose challenges casting.

Fishing pressure on Eureka Reservoir is higher than other nearby reservoirs due to its proximity to Choteau, the largest town around for quite some distance. Access to the reservoir is excellent. A small fishing access site exists, and it is possible to wade around the entire lake.

To reach Eureka Reservoir, go north on Highway 287 out of Choteau for three miles. Then just follow the fishing access site sign.
