Rockport Reservoir

Fishing report

  • Rating: Good
  • Conditions: Fishing has improved, and anglers report catching rainbow trout. The fish are in about 20 feet of water. The south end of the lake (along the river) was active last weekend. Anglers are catching brown trout on worms. Fishing is slow from shore and below the dam.

    Remember to certify that your vessel is clean and free of quagga mussels. You can find forms at the top of most boat ramps. Thoroughly clean, drain and dry your boat after every outing, especially if you have boated at Lake Powell or Deer Creek. Read more about the decontamination process.
