McCloud Reservoir is a 35,000 acre feet reservoir located 10 miles south of the historic logging town of McCloud. The town of McCloud, California lies just east of Mount Shasta and can be easily found by following highway 89 east from I-5.

The Reservoir boasts a healthy population of Brook, Brown and Rainbow Trout. While most anglers land Trout in the 10 to 18 inch range fish up to 5 pounds or better are landed every season. During the winter the Reservoir may not be accessible due to heavy snow. When the fishing is good as many as 30 Trout can be landed.

The Reservoir is the divider between the upper and lower portion of the McCloud River, which flows into Shasta Lake and then flows out of Shasta Dam as the Sacramento River. The head waters of the Sacramento are located just north of the city of Mount Shasta.

Their is one public boat ramp that has fee of $5.00 and a rough camp located near the dam. Camping is free but must you bring your own water as none is provided.
