Fanchers Dam Reservoir
Photo of Fanchers Dam ReservoirLocated eight (8) miles northeast of Tonasket off Swanson Mill Road.  Irrigation reservoir that experiences dramatic drawdowns, but can provide good fishing for rainbows during spring, fall, and winter months.  Expect rainbows in the 10-12 inch range, along with a few eastern brook trout.  Best fished with a small boat or float tube.
