Lake Jennings is a recreational facility providing fishing, camping, hiking, and picnicking activities. The campground is open seven days a week year round. The entire lake is typically open to the general public for fishing three days a week on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. On days that the lake is closed, fishing permits are available at the campground entrance station between 7:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. Fishing hours on those days is 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. for registered campers only and fishing is limited to the shoreline directly below the campground. Operating hours are subject to change. For those intending to fish, you must possess a state fishing license and purchase a daily lake fishing permit. State fishing licenses are not available for purchase at Lake Jennings. They must be obtained prior to visiting the lake. You may acquire a California fishing license online from the California Department of Fish and Game website.
