Each permit is $10 and is good throughout the 2017 season. The permits may be purchased at the Daybreak Community Center during normal business hours. After purchasing your permit, you may complete a short orientation, which includes a boat safety check at the boat ramp during regular boat checkout hours*. When using personal watercraft, please remember the south boat ramp is the only area authorized for launch.

*Before May 27th, orientations will be available on Wednesdays from 6:00 - 7:00 pm & Saturdays from 9:00 - 11:00 am.

Fishing Regulations

The lake has been stocked with trout, bluegill, channel catfish, and largemouth bass. A valid Utah State fishing license is required, and all corresponding rules apply. Please stay within designated fishing areas, as some of our landscaping is fragile. Please also be respectful of other users, especially boaters.

Please note that swimming and wading are not allowed in Oquirrh Lake at this time, due to negative effects on water quality and ecosystem balance.
