Jackson Meadow Reservoir is a high altitude lake on the eastern crest of the Sierra Nevada.

Board Style Recommendation: A touring standup paddle board will provide a very enjoyable experience by cutting through the flat water on Jackson Meadows Reservoir. There are trout in Jackson Meadows Reservoir, so a fishing standup paddle board will be right at home.

Average Summer Temperature: 75 °F

Accessibility Rating: 7/10

Boats/Speed Limit: Lots of boating, 5mp less than 200′ from shore.

Wildlife: Black bear, good trout fishing.

Things to know: Fifteen to twenty thousand rainbow trout catchables and forty to fifty thousand rainbow and brown fingerlings are planted each year.  This lake is very popular with anglers and the estimates are over 65 percent of these fish are caught each season.  Toward the end of the summer, water levels are drawn down, making boat launching difficult as well as limiting access for the fish planting trucks.
