Vallecito Reservoir is managed primarily as a coldwater combined subcatchable and catchable lake. Primary sportfish management is directed toward Kokanee Salmon and Rainbow Trout. Vallecito provides about 9,000 angler days per year, with an estimated total catch of about 7,000 fish.

Rainbow Trout comprise 77% of the catch, followed by Smallmouth Bass (9%), Northern Pike (7%) Kokanee Salmon (5%) and Brown Trout (2%).

These estimates were derived from a creel survey
done in 2007. Fish species present: Rainbow Trout, Northern Pike, Brown Trout, Kokanee Salmon, Walleye, Smallmouth Bass, White Sucker, Yellow Perch (bass and perch illegally introduced).
