Otherwise known as Delta Reservoir.

Does anyone know how this place fishes? Or if it even has water right now? All I could find out on the net was that it is considered a warm water habitat and that everything from Bryce Canyon and down drains into it. I guess it's the last stop for the Sevier River before it flows off to be evaporated in the desert.

Are there trout? Is it somewhat deep? Walleye? Catfish? Bass?

Just wondering. There's not a lot of information out there about it and I never hear anyone mention it. Maybe some people are already mad that I posted the name. If so, sorry.

All I can tell you about that place is that there are so many snow geese floating around out there during certain times of the year, you may be able to bait up your minnow hook with guano for a "match the hatch" situtation. There must be enough nitrates in that water to create the world's largest I.E.D. if there was ever a diesel spill that reached the aquifer.

Perch? Sounds like we should go with threshershark's IED idea.

...Stupid Perch! :lol:

Of course, I'm joking. Perhaps if I'm ever that way, I'll stop in and see what happens. I wonder if there are any other bass in it. Whites are fun for a little while, but unless they've got real size, they get old after a short while.

I'm sure there are cats. I've heard the Sevier below Yuba has a good cat population (or had). I still can't help but wonder if some straggler trout ever made it down that way and got forgotten.

Oh well. Just another Google Earth "I wonder" moment, I suppose.

Thanks.

There's one more stop on the way to the desert - Gunnison Bend, just west of Delta. The trouble with DMAD is that it gets drained so low and so often, that fish don't do well there. Of the two, Gunnison Bend has a more stable pool of water and likely more fish. No first-hand experience, but I know a guy from Delta who fishes for catfish at Gunnison Bend.
