Willard Bay Reservoir
Boat, swim, waterski, and fish on the warm waters of Willard Bay. Camp under tall cottonwood trees that frame the night sky. During winter months, Willard Bay is a wildlife watching area for nesting eagles. Two areas, North and South Marinas, offer all the amenities for a weekend at the Bay.
Latest fishing report
The water temperature has dropped to 46°F. It's cold, but still too warm for ice. Watercraft anglers report good fishing for wipers, perch and catfish. Fishing isn't fast, but it is consistent. Try fishing in deeper water using smaller baits and lures. Anglers are catching fish from dike by fishing with mussels placed a few feet under a bobber or off the bottom. (Last updated 11-25-2016)
