Yuba Reservoir is located approximately 30 miles south of Nephi, just off I-15 on the east side of the freeway. It is located in a long, narrow valley between the Valley Mountains and the San Pitch Mountains, between Gunnison and I-15.

The reservoir shoreline is about 50% privately owned, with BLM comprising the remaining 50%. Public access is unrestricted.

Fishing Tips:


Yuba Reservoir is accessible from many points on U-28 north of Gunnison, as well as from old US-91 north of Scipio. Northern accesses are favored because the south end of the reservoir is often shallow or dry. Old US-91 passes by Yuba Lake State Park, near the dam. Exit I-15 at exit #202?(old exit number) and go south, or exit at #188 (Scipio), and take the frontage road on the west side of the freeway which intersects old US-91 via an underpass a few miles north of Scipio.

There are numerous accesses along U-28 from about 15 miles south of Levan (Painted Rocks access) to near Fayette. Access is also possible from a network of unpaved roads on the west side of the reservoir.
