The reservoir covers 70 surface acres to a maximum depth of 27 feet. The sport fishery comprises rainbow and brown trout, white crappie, largemouth bass, and black bullhead. Anglers catch white crappie averaging about 8 inches and largemouth bass about 9 inches. Unstable water levels and a short growing season lead to fish being small, but occasionally large fish are caught. Anglers generally use Power Bait for trout, although lures and flies work equally well. Crappies take small worms, flies, and jigs. Largemouth can be caught with spinner baits, crank baits, flies, and worms (both rubber and live). Echo Canyon State Park has campsites with water, ramadas, grills, tables, flush toilets, and an RV dump station. The boat ramp becomes available at a high water level, but boats can be launched from shore when the water level drops. Summer temperatures may reach 90°F, while you might experience snow in the winter.
