Big browns have been pulled out lately. Check out our Facebook page for pictures of the fish from the tournament last weekend. An angler caught a beautiful brown on 2/18/14, 27" in about 12" of ice. He also had several other big ones on the line but was unable to bring them up. A large number of trout were stocked in November. There is open water but you can't launch a boat. You can walk out on the peninsula to open water and fish from shore.

Jordanelle Reservoir is one of Utah's most famous waters, and is known as a trophy Smallmouth Bass fishery. It also has some real trophy sized Brown Trout and some big Largemouth Bass as well. The perch fishing at Jordanelle is also very fast. The DWR recently increased the limit on perch at this reservoir from the statewide 20 fish to 50 fish for Jordanelle.
Jordanelle is located between Park City and Heber valleys, near Kamas, Utah in Wasatch County. It is a beautiful lake set around the beautiful Wasatch Mountains. If you go, you'll enjoy a great lake for fishing as well as many other aquatic activities. There are 2 main areas, both Utah State Parks. One is the Hailstone Marina, on the north end of the reservoir. The other is the Rock Cliff Recreational Area, located on the East side where the Provo River enters the reservoir.
