Meet to fish Mill Hollow Reservoir!

Just an UPDATE for those planning to attend this Meetup: The UTA Park & Ride is located on the northwest corner of the intersection of 3900 South and Wasatch Blvd. (The Google map to this has been corrected to reflect the actual location). The official sign says 3870 South, even though the UTA website says 3880 South. No worries - you can't miss it. We will meet there at 8:00 a.m. SHARP tomorrow morning, Sunday, August 3rd. If you get lost or stuck in early Sunday morning rush hour traffic (ehem...), call me (Jim H.) on my cell phone at[masked]-5773. I have a full sized Chevy Silverado and can take three people comfortably. A buddy of mine has a Chevy Tahoe and can also take three people comfortably, so it looks like we have the vehicle/carpool situation covered adequately. See you there and let's have fun and catch some fish!

We'll meet at the UTA Park & Ride at 3880 South Wasatch Blvd. and car pool - details on vehicles available as RSVPs demand. If you have a float tube feel free to bring it, along with your waders and fins. Fishing from the shore is just as productive as fishing from a float tube, so if shore fishing make sure you have sturdy boots as the shore can be muddy, especially if it rains (bring a rain jacket just in case). The fish are not huge, but they are hungry and aggressive, and you are almost guaranteed (99%!) to catch fish. Gear: 5 - 6 wt. rod; small streamers are good (mini olive bead head wooly buggers work really well for me, I'll have some available for those who can't find them); soft hackles; ants and hoppers. Bring a lunch and plenty of water, Gatorade, beer or whatever... a large cooler will be available to keep everything cool.

For those who wish or need to drive themselves, Mill Hollow Reservoir is south of U-35 between Woodland and Tabiona. 11 miles east of Woodland or five miles west of Wolf Creek Summit, turn south off U-35 onto an improved gravel road to Mill Hollow Reservoir, campground, and guard station. The reservoir is 3.5 miles south on this road. The route is well marked from U-35.

Mill Hollow Reservoir is in the Provo River drainage south of the Uinta Mountains. It is a small artificial, stabilized lake maintained by the DWR to provide angling opportunities for Utahns. It is an isolated recreation area. The shoreline is owned by the Uinta National Forest and public access is unrestricted. Water is never drained from the lake for agricultural use. The reservoir is small, 15 acres, with an average depth of 18 feet and a maximum depth of 36 feet. Fish species found in the lake are Brook Trout, Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout and Tiger Trout.

    Thanks for arranging this Jim! Is it good fishing from shore/wading or do you need a watercraft (float tube or kayak) to fish it well.

      Either works, Mark. It's fun to use a float tube or other small watercraft, but I caught as many if not more fish from shore stripping in a small wooly bugger.

      Wading is iffy as the bottom drops very quickly, so standing on solid ground is recommended.

    This sure sounds fun, but I will be in Bear Lake that weekend for the Raspberry Days Festival. Keep 'em coming!
