Box Canyon Reservoir
Photo of Box Canyon ReservoirBox Canyon Reservoir is located on the Pend Oreille River in northeast Washington, and is listed in the regulations under "Pend Oreille River".  It stretches from Albeni Falls Dam, near the Idaho border, to Box Canyon Dam near Ione.  This reservoir offers good largemouth bass and northern pike fishing.  Efforts are currently underway to reduce the northern pike population in order to reduce in-reservoir and downstream impacts to other fish species.  In addition to these species, this reservoir has abundant panfish and some large brown trout.
