Iron Canyon Reservoir is located in northern California and was constructed in 1965 on the Sacramento River. The hydrology of the reservoir is fed by snowmelt from the surrounding mountains and surface flows from the Sacramento River. The snowpack providers for the reservoir are the Trinity Alps and the Mount Shasta regions. The reservoir is mainly used for agricultural purposes, providing water to the surrounding areas, including Redding and Anderson. Recreational activities are also popular, such as fishing, boating and camping. The reservoir is stocked with rainbow trout and is managed by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife. The reservoir has a capacity of 43,000 acre-feet and is owned and operated by the US Bureau of Reclamation.
