History of Cutler Reservoir, Utah

Cutler Reservoir (Cache) is located at 41.8366N 112.0475W in northern Utah at an altitude of 4,390' (1338m). It is at the junction of the Bear, Logan, and Little Bear Rivers. The waters are held back by the Arthur V. Watkins Dam (28'/9m high), built (1964) by the Bureau of Reclamation for flood control and water supply. At maximum capacity the reservoir can hold 223,000 acre feet. It is impacted by excess sediments that have filled in most of the original reservoir. The reservoir contains largemouth bass, black crappie, carp, channel catfish, walleye and perch. The largest marina is the Benson Marina. There are other newer boat ramps with picnic facilities along the reservoir. Restrictions apply as to the use and launching of boats and PWC. (See Use Policy below.)
