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

Fishing is still slow at Willard this week, just as it has been for the past several weeks. One angler who tried to fish the west side of the reservoir this week saw large numbers of fish on their sonar, but none were willing to bite. (Last update 02-15-18)
