Merle Collins Reservoir is a delightful 1600 acre lake in possession of a shoreline of 12 miles. There is a marina at this lake. Fish in Merle Collins Reservoir include catfish, crappie, shad, bass, bluegill and trout. This lake is a perfect place for fishing.
Now, you may imagine that's a lot but there's even more entertaining stuff to do here in the Northern Sierra Nevada. Places like Lake Oroville State Park are great to pop by, and a delightful
lake like Harry L. Englebright Lake is a delightful place to check out. A class I-III, 6-mile-from-start-to-finish whitewater stretch can be found on close by Yuba River, the Englebright Dam to Highway 20 portion.
