Quail Creek is located just minutes from St. George, Utah in Washington County. It has a healthy population of Largemouth Bass as well as abundant bluegill. Black Crappie are a little harder to find but grow to a large size and are fun to catch. In the cooler months, you can find some good Rainbow Trout fishing here as well.

  • Is it safe to fish and eat the fish they catch?  Yes, live fish should be safe to eat at this point in time.
  • Is it safe to eat the dead fish?  We do not recommend eating fish found floating dead in the lake under any circumstances.
  • Is it safe for the birds to be eating the dead fish?  Same for birds as people.

Research has shown that fish kills after the first 24 hours after treatment are generally due to low dissolved oxygen.  The district gathered fish that died up to 24 hours             after the treatment, so we assume recent mortality is due to oxygen levels.
