ICE IS NEVER 100% SAFE! Do not judge ice safety on thickness alone. Ice does not form or maintain a uniform thickness. Snow, wind, slush, temperature, and other factors can cause ice thickness and strength to vary greatly, even within inches. Recreate on the ice at your own risk and verify ice thickness as you head out.

               Marina Boat Ramp                                         Marina Parking Lot

                Hailstone Entrance                                   Personal Watercraft Ramp

Day-Use:  OPEN.  The restrooms at the main boat ramp and PWC ramp are open. All cabanas are available on a first-come-first-served basis. Please be aware the water level is extremely low for this time of year. It is about a 200+ Yard walk from the cabanas down to the water’s edge. 

Surface:  Ice has formed over the majority of the reservoir. The ice at the main boat ramp averages around 6″. The ice at Rock Cliff is between 8-10″. There is a thin layer of ice at the PWC ramp today, but has been open water the last 2 weeks. 

Launch Ramps:  The courtesy docks have been removed from both ramps. The wedge dock at the PWC remains installed, however, there is ice currently forming in the area. Once the ice is solid the wedge dock will be removed.  Please do not park in the middle of the roadway or drive off of the roadway. Vehicles are getting stuck and citations for off road use are being issued. The Ross Creek non-motorized boat ramp remains out of the water. Remember, this is for non-motorized use only!

Aquatic Invasive Species: You must self-decontaminate for Aquatic Invasive Species/mussels if you have been to contaminated water including Lake Powell.  You must be dry for 30 days in the winter for simple boats like sailboats and non-motorized vessels (ex. paddle boards) or be professionally decontaminated before you launch at another water body.  If you have a more complex boat with ballast tanks or in/outboard motors with unverified water, 30 days of dry time is required regardless of the time of year, or professional decontamination must be completed before you launch at another body of water.

Our decontamination station is CLOSED for the season. If you need decontamination, please contact the DWR Central Region at 435-503-4066 for an appointment. If you have been to Lake Powell and your boat has ballast tanks, you must be decontaminated regardless of the time the boat has been out of the water.  This is due to the major infestation at Powell.  Mussels are appearing on boats that are there for less than a week.

Fishing Conditions Jordanelle Reservoir: 01/14/2022 – Ice is forming throughout the reservoir, with thicker ice present north of Hailstone boat ramp and at the Provo river inlet in the Rock Cliff arm. Ice is between 4-6 inches thick from the Hailstone boat ramp West into/throughout Hailstone bay, and the surface is extremely slick – use extreme caution. Ice is 3-6 inches thick for the first 75 yards from shore in Rock Cliff. The water level is still low, resulting in a 0.7-mile walk before you reach the ice in Rock Cliff. The remainder of the reservoir is a mixture of open water and floating sheets of skim ice. Hand launch anglers should be able to launch from the PWC boat ramp. Check the Jordanelle State Park current conditions webpage or give the park a call for up-to-date information regarding boat ramp / launching conditions.
A pontoon boat fisherman reported catching several healthy rainbow trout will trolling kokanee gear at 20-25′ deep in the Provo arm. Shore angler success is mixed, but slow overall.
