Big Sand Wash Reservoir Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Facilities here are primitive. They consist of a cement boat ramp and a toilet. Situated between Altamont and Duchesne in a remote part of the Uintah Basin, the main reason to come here is to fish. This is not a large enough reservoir to enjoy powerboating, there are no camping facilities, and it is not particularly scenic.

Therefore, it is seldom crowded, though the good fishing can mean moderate weekend crowds. The best time to visit is in spring and summer. Later in the year it gets drawn down by irrigation. That can make boat access a problem. Key Species: Rainbow trout."
