Newton Reservoir Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Just north of the Cache Valley town of the same name, Newton Reservoir resembles a large farm pond. It is out in the open with limited facilities, although it is possible to launch a boat here. Thick brush and trees line the shore of Newton, making shore angling difficult. Fishing from a boat or a float tube is the best way to go here. Key Species: Tiger muskie, yellow perch, crappie, largemouth bass, bluegill, and channel catfish.
Fishing Index: If you are looking for diversity in a single fishery, Newton is your place. The reservoir at one time produced some fairly nice-size trout; it has reverted
to a warm-water fishery offering anglers a variety of choices. The introduction of tiger muskie should help keep panfish such as crappie, perch, and bluegill from becoming too numerous. The tigers are caught in the shallows with spinnerbaits, jerkbaits, and topwater lures. Trolling minnow-imitating crankbaits along brush edges and points will produce tiger muskies in the early spring and fall."
