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 majority of the reservoir is ice-free. Please use extreme caution as the ice conditions continue to change. Fishing is slow and anglers are catching small perch and catfish off the bottom. Try using traditional baits and tackle. (Last update 02-22-19)
