San Vicente Reservoir
The city’s largest reservoir is located 25 miles northeast from downtown San Diego. Picnic tables and barbecue areas are available, but fishing is the top reason why locals come here. The clearwater is home to crappie, sunfish, channel catfish, and Florida strain largemouth bass. This is also a hot spot for fun watersport activities like boating, kayaking, waterskiing, and wakeboarding. Its new marina facilities include a 900-foot-long, 6-lane launch ramp, parking, restrooms, bait shop and concession store. There is a general admission fee to enter the lake.
