Jordanelle Reservoir

Fishing report

  • Rating: Fair
  • Conditions: The reservoir is now completely ice free. State Parks has opened the restrooms for campers. Most anglers report slow to fair fishing from shore. Angler Tom Robertshaw reports that his party of six fished from the shore at the marina. The water was muddy and they didn't catch any fish in two hours. He saw a party of two with several trout fishing from the beach at the day-use picnic area. You can use the personal watercraft ramp at Hailstone to launch small boats. There's a substantial drop-off at the end of the PWC ramp (about 10 feet from the water's edge), so use caution and only launch small boats.
