DIRECTIONS - Take U89 south past Marysvale to junction with U62. About 13 miles from turnoff to reservoir. Or, take U24 turnoff at Sigurd and follow to junction with U62 and head south. Located four miles northwest of Antimony.
DESCRIPTION - This is one of the larger reservoirs, 2,500 acres, in the southern half of the state. Lower elevation water with only few trees nearby, but lots of sagebrush and open spaces.FISH: Rainbow, Brown, Cutthroat
WHAT WORKS: Good water to try traditional baits - salmon eggs, cheeses, minnows and Power Bait. Good fly fishing in spring and fall with black, red, brown or green Woolly Buggers. Troll deep during summer months with flat fish, triple teaser and needle fish. Spinners are another good bet. Also try bubble and fly afternoons and evenings. This excellent float tube reservoir.
DETAILS: Bait and flies are best as ice comes off and fish are sluggish and in shallows to feed. Mid-summer waters warms up and fish go deep. Good time to troll. Good areas to fish are South Point, Fisherman's Beach and Tamerisk Point. Some of the best fishing near inlets. The bay, north of Tamerisk Point is good for flies. Shore fishing excellent in spring and fall, but best summer fishing typically from boat or float tube. Troll shallow in the a.m., deeper in the p.m.
NOTES: Very nice state park on southern tip, with modern rest rooms, fish cleaning station, courtesy dock and excellent launch ramp. Otter Creek Marina located on south end reservoir with boat rental, supplies, RV park and cafe. Access good to all areas around the reservoir. Nice place to spend a weekend. Stocked 370,000 fish in 1997 and 1998 expected to be best in 25 years.
Very good fishing for stocked trout. Baits work well here. Success is betes when the sun is out and there's no wind. Good fishing using green Power Bait, worms and salmon eggs. Ponds stocked through April.
