Barrett Reservoir is located in a remote area approximately 35 miles east of San Diego. As a result of low rainfall and runoff totals in recent years the reservoir is low and well below the 811 acres of surface area it boasts at capacity.
Construction of the dam at Barrett was completed in 1922 and formed an important midway control point for water flow into Lower Otay downstream.
The lake's regulations call for the use of barbless artificial lures only and the release of all fish in this "zero kill" fishery.
These regulations were designed primarily to protect the last significant population of northern-strain largemouth black bass in the area. In virtually all other waters in Southern California, these fish have been replaced by the Florida-strain version of largemouth black bass. Other species include bluegill, bullheads, and both white and black crappie. Threadfin shad and silverside minnows are the primary forage fish.
From Highway 94, turn west on Honey Springs Road, right on Lyons Valley Road, 1.7 miles to the gate.
