Upper and Lower Enterprise reservoirs in southwestern Utah will be drained by August 1

Upper and Lower Enterprise reservoirs in southwestern Utah will be drained by August 1. The DWR has changed the fishing regulations at the two waters, and at Little Pine Creek, to give anglers a chance to take fish that will be lost when the reservoir is drained.

Upper and Lower Enterprise Reservoirs (Washington County)

Little Pine Creek (outflow from Lower Enterprise Reservoir) (approximately 1.5 miles) (Washington County):

Effective June 11, 2007 the daily bag and possession limits will be increased to eight (8) trout in the aggregate, and twelve (12) smallmouth bass without size restrictions.

Upper Enterprise Reservoir will be drained by August 1, 2007 with repairs being completed by the first of next year.

A fish consumption advisory was recently issued for Upper Enterprise Reservoir due to elevated levels of mercury found in rainbow trout. Further information regarding this advisory can be found at signs posted at the reservoirs or by contacting the Utah Department of Health.

Except for other emergency changes made since January 1, 2007 all other rules established in the 2007 Utah Fishing Regulations remain in effect.
