Some of Utah’s best bass fishing is found at Sand Hollow Reservoir. Sand Hollow also offers very good fishing for bluegill. Other reservoirs in the area Quail Lake, Gunlock and Lake Powell also provide bass fishing. Quail Lake is usually good for trout in the early and late parts of the year, but that action slows during the heat of the summer. Trout are also found in the numerous small streams in the mountains around the Sand Hollow area.
