Welcome To The Dock!

Wishon Village offers a Marina with 5 pontoon boats and dock slips for docking your boat overnight. Located at Wishon Reservoir. Rentals are available upon reservation only.

Fishing? Picnics? Scenery?

Rent a boat and see all the wonderful things Wishon Reservoir has to offer!

Wishon Reservoir offers many opportunities!
The lake has native Brown Trout and is planted about once a month with Rainbow Trout.
If you’re lucky, you may just see an eagle dropping in to catch a fish or soaring above the lake.
With many streams entering the lake at different points, there are multiple photo opportunities including Short Hair, Wood Chuck, and the feed-in from Courtright Reservoir at the head of the lake. There are picnic sites along the side of the lake as well as restroom facilities, just hang a left on Powerhouse Road before the dam and you’ll find the boat dock parking lot, a picnic area just past the helicopter pad, and a 3rd picnic spot at the end of Powerhouse Road. Both have restroom facilities and picnic tables.
PG&E runs a powerhouse that pumps water between Courtright Reservoir and Wishon Reservoir to generate power, so don’t dock your boat along the lake as water levels can change!
