Starvation Reservoir

Image of Starvation Reservoir

Starvation is a long, deep reservoir set in a panoramic valley with a view of the south slope of the Uinta Mountains. There is a large concrete boat ramp and two boat docks in the main state park and several makeshift ramps in all the larger bays. There are four camping areas around the lake run by Utah State Parks. The main park has showers and a fish cleaning station.

Latest fishing report

The reservoir is building ice quickly. There is still a fair amount of open water in Rabbit Gulch, but most of the reservoir has some ice. Knight Hollow had six to eight inches of ice this week, and a few anglers have been out fishing. Most reports indicate fairly slow fishing with a few rainbows being picked up on small jigs tipped with mealworms. (Last update 01-06-17)
