Best Fishing Lakes to Take a Boat Rental

Deer Creek Reservoir

Deer Creek reservoir provides some fantastic fishing where you can catch some bass or walleye. Be sure to decontaminate on the way out, as the reservoir contains quagga mussels.

Rockport Reservoir

Very quiet reservoir in the early season, but it picks up in the summer months. Rock port is located in relative proximity to Salt Lake City, UT. You'll find the main Utah trout, rainbow, brown and tiger trout as well as yellow perch and smallmouth bass.

Flaming Gorge

Located on the north-eastern corner of Utah, next to the Wyoming border, Flaming Gorge has fantastic remoteness. This remoteness makes for the solitude you want for all boating. Anglers will find some of the biggest trout in the state. Spend the morning fishing, and the day time surfing. Bring your wetsuit, Flaming Gorge has some of the coldest water temps in the state.


Located just 50 minutes from Gephardt Boat Rentals, Jordanelle is the perfect place to take a day trip up in Heber, UT. Great for water sports, and great for fishing where you can catch some rainbow trout, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, brown trout and yellow perch. Jordanelle can be one of the more busy lakes in Utah, so stay away from this reservoir on holidays!

Panguitch Lake

The fish at Panguitch Lake are super hungry, and will be biting! You'll find just about every breed of trout (rainbow, cutthroat and tiger) but beware, many of the fish are not large enough to remove from the lake, so make sure you follow local laws with regards to catch-and-release.

Pineview Reservoir

Located north of Salt Lake City in picturesque Ogden Valley, Pineview is a great place to have a day away. You'll find all kinds of fish species in this beautiful hideaway

Quail Creek Reservoir

Head down south to Hurricane, Utah for a week away with beautiful camping, watersports and fishing. Certainly not Utah's busiest lake, you can mix your day between beach games, wakeboarding, and fishing for largemouth bass, rainbow trout and crappie.

Strawberry Reservoir

Some of the best fishing in the state is up in Heber City, UT at Strawberry Reservoir. It is home to some big fish that are biting! Catch some large rainbow trout or cutthroat trout in this picturesque locale. Bring your wetsuit, as the water here can be as smooth as glass, but is certainly chilly.

Willard Bay

Located just north of Salt Lake City, Willard Bay is usually a haven for wakeboarding, tubing, etc., but this lake is great for catching crappie, bass, bluegill and catfish.
