Bullock Reservoir

Image of Bullock Reservoir

Bullock is a 98-acre reservoir located in western Uintah County. There are no improvements to the area, but you can launch a small boat. The Division stocks tiger muskie, brown trout, channel catfish and wipers into Bullock. Anglers regularly see fish from the Uinta River, including black bullhead, common carp, green sunfish, and white sucker. There is a beautiful view of the south slope of the Uinta Mountains. Bullock gets very little angling pressure. This is likely because of an overgrowth of an invasive plant, Eurasian watermilfoil, along the shoreline that makes it difficult to fish with bait and lures. The water in Bullock Reservoir is owned by the Ouray Park Irrigation District, but the Division owns a conservation pool at the full pool level. This means that the water level fluctuates very little during the irrigation season and only fluctuate because of evaporative loss.
