Sage Hen Reservoir, Idaho

January 15, 2018 2 Comments

If you are looking for a quick fishing trip outside of town, this is the place to go. There are wonderful campgrounds for summer camping as well. 

Additional Info:

Activities Fishing, camping, hiking, 4 wheeling, & paddle boarding
Restrooms Vault Toilets
Mosquitoes Low/Moderate 
Fishing Great: Rainbow Trout (worms & scented marshmallows)
Firewood Average (bring your own if camping for multiple days)



  • Plan your fishing trip in the fall. The reservoir gets drained in the fall, making it easier to fish. 
  • The most scenic route is through the small town of Ola, Idaho (if you are driving from Boise).

When is Sage hen drained?
We are going to be camping there over labor day, and were wondering if we should bring our boat.
Thank you
