Current Conditions

Ice Thickness:  The edges of the ice has melted. Safe ice is approximately 10-20 feet from shore. The edges have begun to freeze again with the colder tempuratures, but it is only an inch thick and not safe to go out onto.
Fishing Report: Fishing is good right now. People are catching some really nice 18 in rainbows.  The trout are just below the surface approximately 5-10 ft down. Jigs with a night crawler are working well. Try adding some garlic or green powerbait. Perch are being caught off just off the launch ramp of the marina. Fishing report can change daily so please visit the Utah DWR website for the most up-to-date conditions.
Day-Use: All Day Use areas in the park are open with the exception of the Highland Day Use Area. The fish cleaning station has been winterized.
Launch Ramp: Closed to boat launching because of ice. The ramp is plowed and you can park on the ramp as long as you are off to the side.
Campground: We winterized the park on October 31st. The water has been turned off at Riverside, Cedar Point, and Juniper campgrounds. The other campgrounds are still open and available for walk up only (no reservations). The dump station is open year round.
Surface: Open
Water Level: 64%

Rockport Reservoir (also called Wanship Reservoir) is a large lake located on the Weber River midway between Kamas and Coalville. The reservoir shoreline is owned entirely by the state of Utah. Public access is unrestricted, but fees are charged to use park facilities.

Rockport is a popular ice fishing destination, especially for Perch enthusiasts anxious to catch lots of tasty Yellow Perch through the ice.
