Conditions : STARVATION RESERVOIR: Walleye fishing should be picking up. Kokanee fishing is extremely slow. The water temperature is hovering around 48 degrees and the visibility in the water is about four feet. The reservoir is very full and spilling. Biologists have been conducting surveys and have found high densities of smaller walleye. Anglers are being encouraged to harvest these small walleye to help balance the fishery out and produce healthier walleye populations. Also, if anglers catch crappie, we are asking them to please voluntarily release them so this population of crappie can get established in the reservoir

About: - Starvation Reservoir offers 3,500 acres of fishing and boating fun four miles northwest of Duchesne on Highway 40. A 54 unit campground, sandy beach, modern rest rooms, showers, group-use area, and fish cleaning and sewage disposal stations are available. Primitive camping is allowed at designated areas around the reservoir.

Misc Info: - (4/3/18) The Division has issued an emergency change that liberalizes limits at Steinaker. There is no daily bag limit for any species, including largemouth and smallmouth bass, rainbow and brown trout, and bluegill. This change will remain in effect until December 31, 2018. The Bureau of Reclamation will fill Steinaker to the same level as previous years in 2018. It will be drawn down to dead pool over the course of the 2018 irrigation season. Boaters should be able to launch through the summer, but we expect to lose access to the reservoir via the boat ramp in October. We also expect there to be no storage water in Steinaker during all of 2019. Work on the dam will begin in late fall and will continue through the winter. We will not stock brown or rainbow trout in 2018 or 2019. We hope to be able to begin restoring of the fishery in 2020.
