Little Reservoir is a small lake located about 10 miles from Beaver in Beaver County, Utah. The fishing here is pretty good, and the lake is home to both rainbow and brown trout all year round.
What bait works best on a small reservoir?
Most people fish in the lake for bait, but cocktails, hairy flies and other flies are very productive during the summer months for rainbow fish. To target larger brown fish you want to use something that matches the smaller fish in the lake.
During the summer months, rainbow bites seem to be best in the morning, and if you’re targeting the Browns, hoping for one of the rumored monsters that live in Little Reservoir, then the best time to fish is in the early evening hours as the sun sets.

How to get to Little Reservoir near Beaver, Utah
From Beaver head east on UT-153 for 10 miles. Turn right onto Kents Lake Road (FR137) and follow it for 0.8 miles. The small reservoir will be to the right of the road.
In winter there is no road, and I saw how the road was covered with snow until May.
