Minersville Reservoir Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Minersville State Park has a 29-unit campground and also offers showers, a launching ramp, potable water, and electrical hookups for a fee. Minersville Reservoir has the dubious distinction of being Utah’s most often chemically treated body of water. The 1,130-acre reservoir 12 miles west of Beaver has been treated numerous times to rid it of the prolific Utah chub. In between poisonings, it traditionally provided some of the state’s best rainbow fishing thanks to large plants of the trout.

Float-tubing is the most popular way to fish Minersville, especially when the ice first comes off the reservoir and the trout look for a place to spawn. Using sinking line and stripping in olive, brown, or black woolly buggers works best for the trout. Damselfly nymph and leech patterns in dark colors, especially black and brown, are also productive. Bead-head nymphs and wet flies can work. The only real opportunity for dry fly purists comes in June during large but infrequent midge hatches. Key Species: Rainbow trout, cutthroat trout, and smallmouth bass."
