Additional Fishing Info: 

The reservoir froze over on December 31st. As of January 23rd the ice is 6-7" thick, with a layer of grey ice on top. The ice is very smooth and slick, we recommend using ice cleats. The edges are soft as the reservoir water level continues to rise. All ice should be considered unsafe, use at your own risk. Hyrum Dam State Park is currently listed as good for fishing right now. Trout has been good using ice flies, shrimp, white, orange, and pink jigs. Visit utahfishinginfo.com/dwr/fishingreports.php for updated fishing reports.

The campground showers and restrooms are closed for winter and the winter bathroom is now open. Winter camping rates are now in effect.

Hyrum Reservoir was created in 1935 by the construction of an earth-fill dam. The reservoir shoreline is owned by the State of Utah with mostly unrestricted public access, although fees are charged in improved recreation areas.

Hyrum State Park's facilities are located on the northern shore, and include 31 RV campsites, restrooms, showers, a ranger station, boat ramp, dock, and trailheads.

Fishing Tips:

Fish Hyrum from the shore or a boat. Standard trout bait such as Powerbait should work from shore, or try trolling from a boat using crankbaits or spinners. Fish with worms for panfish or catfish.
