Lake Berryessa is heavily used for recreational purposes and encompasses over 20,000 acres when full. The reservoir is approximately 15.5 miles long, but only 3 miles wide. It has approximately 165 miles of shoreline.

The Fishing at Berryessa has become the talk of the state. Thanks to the management, plantings and pen projects Berryessa Trout Fishing has become one of the best trout lakes in the state. Berryessa Kokanee Fishing is something special as well. Berryessa Kokanee Fishing has gained the label as the best Kokanee Lake in California. For the last few years Berryessa has continued to produce the largest Kokanee in the state of California.

We can’t overlook the fact that Berryessa King Salmon fishing has been great as well. Berryessa King Salmon often average 3 plus pounds.
