East Canyon Reservoir & State Park

Fishing report

  • Rating: Fair
  • Conditions: Fishing continues to be spotty with anglers finding a bit of success in some areas and little success in others. Several report catching fish with shrimp and a variety of worms. Powerbait is semi-effective as well. Most anglers are fishing around 30 to 40 feet. Anglers have best success either fishing on the south side of the reservoir or when moving around when an area seems slow. The most common catch is trout, and they are biting on any type of bait. The trick is finding them.
