Fishing Strawberry Reservoir

Strawberry Reservoir   |  Cortney Boice, Blue Halo
  • Weather: Mostly Clear, 55F
“The Berry” is widely considered to be the top stillwater fishery in Utah

Strawberry Reservoir lies in an open mountain valley with mixed conifer and aspen forests on the upper slopes. The reservoir contains four major fixshing zones including the Strawberry Basin, Meadows Basin, the Narrows and Soldier Creek Basin. 

Catches include cutthroat trout, rainbow trout and the possibility of kokanee salmon and smallmouth bass. 

Locals love heading to Strawberry Reservoir in the spring for "ice-off", which refers to the retreating ice sheet on Strawberry Reservoir and the conglomeration of large Cutthroat and Rainbow Trout heading toward the banks in search of warmer water and a fresh meal. Anglers take some of the biggest fish of the year during the first few warm months of the year using a variety of flies.
