DescriptionPanguitch Lake is a natural 1,250 acre lake surrounded mostly by lava flows and some forest. A mountain retreat flanked by aspens, spruce and ponderosa pines, the lake was appropriately named by the Paiute Indians -- Panguitch means "BIG FISH."
The lake is a popular fishing lake with rainbow, brook, cutthroat, and brown trout thriving in its cool waters. There are two public boat ramps and a fish cleaning station.
Deer and elk can usually be seen in the early morning hours or late afternoons. Ice fishing is great.
On the southwest edge of the lake Blue Springs Lodge provides a great escape destination, offering cozy cabins and great fishing. Northwest of the lake, on Northshore Road.
