Notes:Round Valley Lake
Round Valley Reservoir, also called Bidwell Lake, is the recreational paradox of the Feather River region. Lying at a 4,500 foot elevation, this is a 350 acre lake ringed by fragrant conifers. It appears to be an ideal trout water. Ironically, the lake is a warm water fishery, and contains numerous large-mouth bass plus such an abundance of blue gill that almost everyone who tries catches fish. The California record for large-mouth black bass was a 14-pounder taken from Round Valley in 1948. Campgrounds with running water, sanitary and shower facilities, and a boating concession operate here during the vacation season. No swimming is allowed since the lake provides domestic water for Greenville. A bird watcher's paradise, the lake has over 100 resident species.
