Bassmaster magazine placed the 55-mile long reservoir that produced the state record smallmouth on its list of the top 100 bass fishing destinations in the nation. Dworshak landed at No. 47.

In a brief description the magazine said "The Idaho state record smallmouth came from here (9.72 pounds), and its gene pool still swims in this water." Other regional waters that made the list include Lake Coeur d' Alene that was listed at No. 4 on the list.

Said the editors at Bassmaster, "This lake makes a big move up this year on the strength of its trophy smallmouth fishery. The smallies have always been a rowdy group on this lake, but now they are rowdy and big. It is no longer unusual to land one over 6 pounds here. And don’t forget about the largemouth fishery. The lake record largemouth is 10-15, with average bass weighing in between 2 and 3 pounds."

The Columbia River was listed at No. 14 and Potholes Reservoir in central Washington was No. 66.

The full list is here.

In March, the website Fishound placed Dworshak at at No. 86 on its list top 100 bass destinations list.

Lake Coeur d' Alene land at No. 11 on the Fishhound list. The Snake River in Idaho and Washington was No. 27, the Columbia River was No. 22 and Lake Sammamish barely made the list at No. 91.
