Rockport Reservoir

Fishing report

  • Rating: Good
  • Conditions: Fishing is good from a boat or the shore. Fishing is better in the evening and into the night. Trolling your favorite lure can be very productive if you get the lure the the right depth. Shore fishing is improving. Some anglers have reported catching over 10 fish. One group of anglers caught 13 rainbow trout by Twin Cove campground (on the east side) using garlic and cheese. PowerBait and nightcrawlers are working well too. Bass fishing is still good. The water is still very cold, so make sure you wear a life jacket — even when you're fishing from the dock. 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.
