Little Dell Reservoir is located just 20 minutes away in Emigration Canyon, making it one of the closest reservoirs to Salt Lake City. It is possible to get off work, spend the evening fishing here, return home with your catch, and still have some daylight left! Originally the reservoir was only planned to be used for a municipal and industrial water supply for the valley, but due to demand for a recreational component another utah fishery was born.
Access is limited to the state provided parking lot. It is clearly marked that there is no parking along the hwy 65 (no parking - no trespassing - violators will be prosecuted) . So you will have to pay the day use fee to park ($5.00 per car). From the parking lot you can easily access the north side of the reservoir, but you will have to hike or use a non motorized boat to fish other parts of Little Dell.
No Motorized Boats. Artificial Lures And Flies Only.
