Fish Lake, Bonner County, Idaho

Sandy Beach Launch area... not suitable for trailer launching
Fish Lake Dam. Bridge is for Blanchard Rd.
Fish Lake, which is a reservoir is also known by locals as Poirier Lake (not to be confused with the small Poirier Reservoir on this page)  is a few miles southwest of the city of Blanchard off of Blanchard Rd. or Poirier Ranch Rd. It is a beautiful reservoir set in a wooded area with few houses, known for its fishing and area near Blanchard that one can swim. A small dam under the Blanchard Road bridge created this reservoir keeping its water level up evening in the hot summer months. Fishing: Unknown. Facilities: Primitive dirt and sand launch, no restroom or running water. Open area to camp. There are no signs the last time I checked indicating no camp. Fishing: No info at this time. Directions: Access to this is reservoir via two access points. 1. Access it right next to Blanchard Road Bridge (east side of bridge) via a narrow gate, allowing only walk in traffic. The other access point is via Poirier Ranch Rd. From the city of Blanchard you take Poirier Rd, then before you could make a major right turn on this road you will meet Poirier Ranch Rd. Take this road straight up the hill and at the first major gravel intersection take a right, then go straight and before you could take a major left turn on this road to the right you will see a well traveled dirt road. Follow this road to the reservoir. After you go a couple miles the road will split right or left, stay to the left. Maps: View Google Map below...
