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.
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
General statewide regulations. However, vessels are prohibited in areas designated by signs or buoys at Eagle Valley Dam at Spring Valley State Park.
