Sand Hollow Reservoir is located in Southwest Utah, Washington County. Take Hurricane exit off I-15 just north of St. George. The primary species found here are bluegill and largemouth bass with a possible catch of bullhead catfish. At 1,300 acres with an elevation of 3,060 feet, it is the newest of Washington County's largemouth bass reservoirs, located just a stone's throw south from Quail Lake. It was opened to fishing in 2004.Eight- to sixteen-inch bass are extremely abundant and there are a surprising number of larger bass ranging to over five pounds. This is an ideal location to start a newcomer on fishing. Casting a small curly-tail jig with a 1/8-ounce jig head or suspending a jig or small piece of worm will catch both bluegill and small bass. Regulations allow for the harvest of six largemouth bass with only one fish over 12 inches and bluegill are covered under the general statewide limit of 50 fish, so kids can take home a mess of tasty bluegill if they desire. The reservoir is heavily used by water skiers and jet skis during the warmer months, so you may consider going early to avoid the traffic and the heat. Great 4-wheeling sites are located nearby so bring your ATV for a break when your arms get tired reeling in fish. Sand Hollow State Park provides a campground with full hookups and showers. Public access to the reservoir is available only through the park.
