HURRICANE, Utah — A Utah man died Monday after an incident at Quail Creek State Park.
The body of 77-year-old Donald L. Denoon was recovered from the reservoir Monday night after his family reported that he had gone fishing that morning and didn't return.
Denoon, a resident of Washington County, was reported missing around 7:45 p.m. He was found dead by rescuers at about 10:45.
The area was experiencing windy conditions and cold water temperatures Monday, the Utah Division of Parks and Recreation said. A life jacket was found inside Denoon's boat, but he was not wearing one.
"The Utah Divison of Parks and Recreation extends our condolences to Denoon’s friends and family," a press release read.
The incident is under investigation.
