Palisade Reservoir


Palisade Reservoir is located in Southcentral Utah. Palisades Reservoir should be good fishing for mostly recently planted rainbows with an occasional larger trout. The state record tiger trout was caught here last year. Nine-mile reservoir is close by, and if you want to go exploring you can always drive up Fairview Canyon and fish Huntington, Fairview, Electric Lake, Cleveland and several other bodies of water.

Ice is Never 100% Safe! — Do not judge ice safety on thickness alone. Ice does not form or maintain a uniform thickness. Snow, wind, slush, temperature, and other factors can cause ice thickness and strength to vary greatly, even within inches. Recreate on ice at your own risk and verify ice thickness as you head out.
