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.
