Milton Lake

One of the most picturesque fishing lakes in our region is Milton Reservoir northwest of Truckee. It is located below Jackson Meadows Reservoir on a dirt road that takes off to the right before crossing the dam.

Be sure to check out John Marcacci's video for the Milton Midge - you will need several of those in your box!

The Middle Fork of the Yuba River that comes out of Jackson Meadows Reservoir provides the water for Milton. Because the water comes out of the bottom of the dam, it is cool, making it a great place to fish in the hot summer months. Expect water temperatures in the low to mid-50s.
