Echo Canyon Reservoir is an excellent place to go if you’re into sport fishing. Here, you’ll find rainbow and brown trout, white crappie, largemouth bass, and black bullhead. Because the water levels here are unstable and the growing season is short, the fish don’t tend to get very large. The white crappie are generally about eight inches long and the largemouth bass measure approximately nine inches. Occasionally, a lucky fisherman will catch a large fish, but it isn’t the norm. Those who come searching for trout usually opt for PowerBait®, lures, and flies. If you prefer to target crappie, try using small worms, flies, and jigs. The largemouth bass respond well to spinner baits, flies, worms, and crank baits. When the water level is high, you can use the boat ramp to get into the water, but when it’s low, you’ll need to launch from the shore. It can get as hot as 90°F in the summer, and cold enough to snow in the winter. If you enjoy camping, Echo Canyon State Park offers campsites with grills, water, tables, ramadas, an RV dump station and flushing toilets.
