Ferron Reservoir

Ferron Reservoir lies in an attractive alpine basin east of the Skyline Drive on the Wasatch Plateau. Ferron is near Willow Lake and Duck Fork Reservoir. Snow at the reservoir usually lasts well into late spring, and summer storms can make roads very slick.

Latest fishing report

Anglers have been catching cutthroat, rainbow and brook trout, all between 11 and 19 inches, at Ferron Reservoir. They've had success using size 8 bead headed leeches in brown and plum, as well as soft hackle flies in tan/green/pearl color combinations. Most of the fish are being caught in the shallow water along the edges. You might also try using a fly and a bubble from the shore. Access to Ferron Reservoir may be limited due to recent snowfall.
