Millerton Lake Boating

Millerton Lake's expanse of water provides abundant space for all kinds of boating, including waterskiing, jet skis, fishing boats, and kayaks.

Sailing is popular at Millerton Lake with many regattas being held there. Waterskiing is not allowed at the head of the San Joaquin arm, making it a popular place for anglers to cast for bass and trout.
