History

Eagle Valley Reservoir was created in 1965 and is located within Spring Valley State Park.  It occurs within the Colorado River watershed and the outflow, Meadow Valley Wash, enters the Muddy River and eventually into Lake Mead.

Pertinent Information

Eagle Valley Reservoir has a maximum depth of 43 feet and 65 surface acres.  The fishery is put-and-take, made up of rainbow trout, tiger trout (brown trout x brook trout hybrid), and brown trout.  Anglers can expect to catch between 4 and 5 fish per day and rainbow trout average 10 inches, while tiger trout average about 11 inches.  The best fishing occurs from April through June and September through October, and ice fishing is popular during cold winters.  There are two state run campgrounds and a day use area.  The park has an improved boat ramp and a fish cleaning station.  Summer temperatures range between 45 and 85°F, while winter temperatures can drop below zero.
