I'm sure you are talking about Mud Lake aka Provo Bay

There are a few more around the south side of the bay also. It is extremly low and the MUD IS DEEP especially out the springville access point. it's called millrace if you want to see where it is located.

P.S. The MUD IS DEEEEEPPPPP!! you will sink up to your crotch in it.

I heard the mud is deep. I tried to find it earlier but got lost due to construction. Is it worth going if you have a canoe? Can you work around the mud?

It's to shallow to float.
+ 1
I went out the airport dike to take a look and there is an inch of water about 1/2 mile wide down the center of the bay. it's way to low to hunt and there was very few ducks out there. Bad year to be hunting in Utah county.

I also went out to Provo boat harbor and Powell slough there just aren't any ducks around at all. No rafts on the lake. No ducks in the slough going to be expensive year heading north all the time. SUCKS!:sad:

I saw my first flocks of ducks this morning at 7:00 Am going North on I-15 ;-) Looked to be headed towards the lake between Lindon and Pleasant Grove. If you know the area! You know where they were headed. ;)

Nice place to live, I bet you see your fair share of waterfowl out there.

Been out there several times and have yet to see more than 50 ducks total on any morning. I saw one group of 3 guys kill 2 ducks one morning and that's been the best I have seen. Most people aren't even getting a shot. Frankly right now it's not worth wasting your time. I haven't killed a bird out there yet.

I think he is talking more about Provo Bay (AKA Mud Lake) It is just south of the provo airport. LL.

If there are people pulling a bunch of ducks out of there they have to be hunting the feeder creeks and canals, Look at the maps and you can see everyone of them that goes into the bay. Long walks might get you to the birds. I have been seeing four wheelers out on the mudflat on the North end, and the south end. the cut from the lake to provo bay is dry except the north cut but once you get in the bay there is no water near any cover. and with the wet weather I wouldn't be driving on the mud now... PM me and I will give you some access points. I have been out there many times this year checking on the bird numbers.
