Willard Bay Reservoir

Fishing report

  • Rating: Good
  • Conditions: Fishing improved last week for shore and boat anglers. The water temperature dropped, so fish are a little more active. You can catch catfish on many different kinds of bait and lures. Wipers have been more aggressive throughout the lake. The water level is still dropping, so use caution while you're on the water. The north marina ramp is at five feet and south marina ramp is at three feet.
