Echo Reservoir

Latest fishing report

Echo State Park is open and the boat ramp is available for you to launch your boat. It costs $12 to launch your boat if you don't have an annual Utah State Parks pass. One group of anglers who fished from a boat when the state park opened this past week gave a detailed report. At first they had a slow time catching a few small planters on long lines and a small rainbow Rapala. As the sun warmed things up and they started to fish deeper, they caught eight very nice rainbow trout with leaded line and pink squids behind a pink dodger. They ended up catching about 20 fish total. (Last update 05-18-18)
