East Canyon Reservoir & State Park

Fishing report

  • Rating: Good
  • Conditions: Boat anglers are having great success trolling and catching rainbows. You can still launch a boat until the reservoir freezes. There aren't many shore anglers fishing. The first leg of Wasatch Back Quad-fishalon will be at East Canyon on January 31. The Quad-fishalon is four ice-fishing tournaments at four separate reservoirs. You can choose to enter one or all. Cabela's is sponsoring the event and will award an ultimate ice fishing package worth thousands of dollars. Thanks to Park Manager Chris Haramoto and Park Ranger Kent Cummings for that report!
