Fishing has been good for trout and slow for other species.

Because of the recent warming trend, the ice on Starvation is becoming very dangerous.  There is still open water and now water soaked pressure ridges are forming throughout the reservoir.  With water coming through the tunnel, Knight Hollow has especially become questionable with water flowing over the ice and ice thickness dwindling to just a couple inches in spots.  All ice is considered un-safe and use at your own risk.

There have been lots of ice fishermen out on the reservoir with minimal success.

You can register for the ice fishing tournament on this website.  Go to events and see the event listed and look for registration tab.

If we have to cancel the ice fishing tournament we will do it a few days before the Steinaker tournament.


Ice Thickness:

Road Conditions: 
The roads to Knight Hollow and Juniper Point are rough, snowy and muddy.

The boat ramp is closed due to ice.

Starvation Reservoir is a large Bureau of Reclamation Reservoir of the Strawberry River in the Uinta Basin. The shoreline used to be 100% publicly owned, but some land has been sold to private entities in recent years.

Yellow Perch were recently introduced to Starvation Reservoir, and it has now become popular with some Utah anglers that love to target the smaller but tasty relatives of the Walleye.
