Have you tried something like:
            Assembly asm = Assembly.LoadFile(@"C:\someAssembly.dll");

            Type[] types = asm.GetTypes();
            foreach (Type t in types)
            {
                if (t.BaseType.Equals(typeof(System.Web.UI.UserControl)))
                {
                    Console.WriteLine(t.Name + " is a user control");
                }
            }
