Lake Poway

Nestled in the hills of Poway, the Lake Poway Recreation Area not only serves as the water supply for residents, but also has provided exceptional outdoor recreational opportunities since 1972. Get hooked on fishing and boating, head up the mountain on a hike, take aim at archery, or enjoy a leisurely picnic.  

It's currently Trout Season at Lake Poway!  Visit our 2014-2015 Trout Season page for more information, including the complete stocking schedule.

2015 is the year for mandatory catch and release of all bass during March, April and May. Please help keep the bass population healthy by releasing all bass caught during these months.

The Entry Station will charge a $5 entry fee for all non-Poway residents on weekends and holidays.
