Where to practice rolling? Reservoirs/Lake?

Post by Dan007CT on Sat 27 Jul 2013, 11:31 pm

Looking for a good reservoir or lake to practice rolling. Not sure which ones allow swimming/boating and looking for a quiet area that I don't need to worry about getting run over by a waverunner/boat.  Thanks! Smile

The south edge of the entrance to Provo Harbor, next to the shoal. You can practice rolling in the wakes of the boats. You can even surf the waves if you have a short playboat. Its far enough from the boat traffic to be safe, but not a great place if its your first roll practice incase you swamp. Climbing onto the rocks to empty your boat can be hazardous.

Delete "shoal" more like a breaker made out of boulders or slabs of concrete.

Bountiful Pond.  North side of the islands is plenty deep and no mptorboats allowed.

Another is Holmes Creek Res.  If the skiers are there you have to yeild as they own the rights, but they allow canoes and kayaks on the lake now.

Not sure where you're located but one of my fav little spots is Causey Res. No motors allowed and 'bout the only thing you'll have to navigate is the cliff jumping revelers (Park it n Huck!) as you paddle toward one of the back beaches. Havent been this year so not sure of the level but you may even park on the dam and practice "Beaver Slides" to the water.

Bring your PFD as Ive seen Johnny w/ bino's issuing citations for non compliance!

Oquirrh Lake in the south west end of the Salt Lake valley is a good place. 
A much nicer place but they frown on swimming is Little Dell Reservoir near Parleys Canyon.  Neither place allows motorized boats.

Spanish Oaks reservoir by the mouth of Spanish Fork canyon is good if you are in the south part of Utah Valley
