Rockport Reservoir

Fishing report

  • Rating: Slow
  • Conditions: Anglers report slow fishing. The water temperature is in the 70s, so fish have gone down to depths of 25–30 feet. Small mouth fishing is hit and miss on the west side of the lake and dam. Try heading to the reservoir early in the morning to avoid the recreational boat traffic. If you're looking to catch browns, fish below the dam. Fly anglers are catching nice-size browns right before sunset.

    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.
