Abajo Mountain

Northern Pike, Rainbow Trout

(May 28) All San Juan County waters are open and stocked. The most recently stocked waters are Blanding Three and Four. Each were stocked with about 1,400 nine-inch rainbow trout each on May 16. The Rattlesnake ponds were stocked with nearly 2,000 nine-inch rainbows on May 16. Lloyds Lake was stocked with nearly 4,000 eight-inch rainbow trout on April 13. Fishing for pike and bass at Recapture Reservoir is improving as the water temperature rises. Aquatics Biologist Calvin Black suggests fishing with weedless swimbaits in shallow, weedy areas.

Bear Lake

Cisco, Cutthroat Trout, Mackinaw (Lake Trout), Rainbow Trout, Whitefish

STOP WHIRLING DISEASE

(Jun 16) The surface water temperature is about 55°F. You can launch a boat at the State Park marina, First Point, Cisco Beach and Rainbow Cove boat ramps. Fishing is good for cutthroat trout and fair for lake trout. Trolling is the best method for catching cutthroat. Good spots include off the west side of the lake from the Utah State Park marina northward to Fish Haven Creek in Idaho. You should also try off the east side from Second Point northward to the Boy Scout camp. Anglers are also catching fish just off Gus Rich Point. Try using different sizes of Rapala-type lures, deep-diving crankbaits and squids behind a dodger. Anglers are catching suspended fish using flat lines by letting out 100 to 175 feet with deep divers. You can also use downriggers at around 55 to 60 feet deep. Try trolling from about 1.7 to 2.2 miles per hour in the mornings and slightly faster (2.5 miles per hour) in the afternoons. Utah suckers are spawning along the shorelines at the marina and along the rocky shorelines on the east side of the lake. Since the water is still fairly cold, fish can be found at any depth. If you're not catching fish, keep moving to different depths. Please remember that you must release cutthroat trout that don't have a healed fin clip.

Beaver Mountain Lakes

Rainbow Trout

(Jun 15) Forest Road 137 is open at least to Labaron. Catchable-sized rainbow trout have been stocked in Little Res, Kent's Lake and Upper Kent's Lake. Anglers report good fishing for rainbow, tiger and brook trout at Kent's Lake. The Indian Creek road has been fixed, and catchable-sized rainbow trout have been stocked in the reservoir.

Beaver River

Brook Trout, Brown Trout, Cutthroat Trout, Rainbow Trout

STOP WHIRLING DISEASE

(Jun 16) Catchable-sized rainbow trout have been stocked. Look for fair to good fishing with summer irrigation flows.

Regulations

Benches Pond Reservoir

Rainbow Trout

(May 28) The pond is ice free and is expected to be stocked just before the Memorial Day weekend. Try using traditional baits.

Regulations

Big Sandwash Reservoir

Brown Trout, Crayfish, Rainbow Trout

(Jun 17) With water temperatures rising, most anglers have focused their attention on smallmouth bass and perch, but they're still catching a few rainbows on the side. To target perch, try fishing small single-tail jigs (tipped with a nightcrawler) in the shallow flats located on the north end of the reservoir. For bass, try casting along the shoreline with crawfish or perch patterns. The many perch in the reservoir provide a substantial prey base. Perch patterns have been productive for perch, bass and trout lately.

Birch Creek Reservoir

Cutthroat Trout, Rainbow Trout, Tiger Trout (hybrid)

No recent reports.

Blacksmith Fork River

Brook Trout, Cutthroat Trout, Rainbow Trout, Whitefish

STOP WHIRLING DISEASE

(Jun 17) Anglers report good fishing above the second dam and in many places throughout the river. Most anglers are having the best success using caddis flies. Nymphs, salmon flies and hoppers are working as well.

Blue Mountains

Brook Trout, Northern Pike, Rainbow Trout

No recent reports.

Boulder Mountain Lakes

Brook Trout, Rainbow Trout

(Jun 16) Most lakes are accessible. The Boulder Top should be accessible within the next couple of weeks. Fair to good fishing can be found across the mountain. Try getting away from the most popular lakes for better success. Also, don't hesitate to move to a new lake if you find slow fishing. Spin fishers should try marabou jigs, tube jigs, Gulp minnows, spinners, Jake's and Kastmasters. Focus on natural baits like nightcrawlers or cut bait. (This is especially effective for large tigers.) Fly anglers should bring an assortment of streamers, terrestrials, beadhead nymphs and your favorite dry patterns. Most Boulder lakes are full of freshwater shrimp, so scuds are a must in your fly box.

Regulations

Boulger Reservoir

Rainbow Trout

(May 28) The reservoir is ice free and there are plans to stock eight- to nine-inch rainbow trout just before the Memorial Day weekend.

Regulations

Bountiful Pond

Bluegill, Channel Catfish, Rainbow Trout

(Jun 17) Anglers report catching a lot of bluegill and sunfish, but fishing is a little slower for those targeting catfish and trout. Bluegill and sunfish (found right next the shore) are readily taking anything on a small hook. Those catching catfish are using worms, hotdogs and other stinky baits fished on the bottom.

Regulations

Box Creek Reservoirs

Brook Trout, Rainbow Trout

No recent reports.

Brough Reservoir

Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout, Smallmouth Bass

FISH CONSUMPTION ADVISORY

(Jun 17) Anglers report good bank fishing for rainbows, using spinners. Fly-fishing anglers are also doing well. A recent survey of the reservoir showed a plentiful population of rainbow trout.

Regulations

Browne Reservoir

Brook Trout, Kokanee Salmon, Rainbow Trout

(Jun 17) Anglers report slow fishing. The lake is full and running over the spillway. The water is murky because of runoff. Anglers in the area may find better success fishing the stream below the dam.

Bullock Reservoir

Largemouth Bass, Rainbow Trout, Tiger Musky (hybred)

(Jun 17) Recent reports indicate slow fishing. There isn't much shoreline access because of the vegetation. Small boats or float tubes are recommended. Water flows are high, and the water is very murky.

Regulations

Burraston Ponds

Albino Trout, Bluegill, Rainbow Trout

(Jun 24) The pond is heavily stocked with catchable rainbow trout. Try using traditional lures and baits (for example, Jake's spinners and worms). You may have more success if you tip your lures with a nightcrawler or PowerBait. Be aware of the youth fishing classes held on Thursday nights throughout the summer months. There's a new restroom open and available for use.

Regulations

Calder Reservoir

Rainbow Trout

(Jun 11) Catchable-sized rainbows have been stocked to restart the reservoir after the winterkill.

Regulations

Causey Reservoir

Cutthroat Trout, Kokanee Salmon, Rainbow Trout, Splake (hybrid), Tiger Trout (hybrid)

(Jun 17) Most anglers report fair fishing. A couple anglers caught fish from shore on the north side of the lake using worms and marshmallows. The water is cold, clear has good visibility. Anglers report good fishing for rainbow trout from the shore and trolling. Anglers are starting to catch kokanee too. Troll the upper arm and use kokanee rigs.

Regulations

Chalk Creek

Cutthroat Trout, Rainbow Trout

No recent reports.

Clear Creek

Rainbow Trout

(Jun 16) Removal of non-native trout in the Clear Creek drainage is complete, and stocking of Bonneville cutthroat trout is in full swing. Look for catchable-sized fish throughout the entire stream this year. Some of the tributaries — including Mill, Fish and Shingle creeks — will also provide good fishing opportunities.

Cleveland Reservoir

Rainbow Trout

(May 28) The reservoir is completely ice free. Angler reports range from slow to hot. Weather systems moving through the area play a big role in success. Rainbows are typically large 16–20 inches and weigh two to four pounds. Tube jigs and gold spoons work well.

Clinton City Park Pond

Bluegill, Channel Catfish, Largemouth Bass, Rainbow Trout

No recent reports.

Regulations

Corn Creek

Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout

No recent reports.

Cottonwood Reservoir

Rainbow Trout, Smallmouth Bass

(Jun 17) Fishing is improving. Anglers report catching a few tiger muskies, wipers and trout while trolling crankbaits, spinners and spoons. Rainbow colors have been the most productive. Some anglers are catching tiger muskie (18 to 20 inches) while casting toward shore with crawfish pattern plastics. A few carp were recently seen in the reservoir. Please bring along your bow-fishing tackle and help remove them.

Regulations

Crouse Reservoir

Rainbow Trout

No recent reports.

Currant Creek

Brown Trout, Cutthroat Trout, Rainbow Trout

No recent reports.

Currant Creek Reservoir

Cutthroat Trout, Rainbow Trout

(Jun 24) Fly fishing from float tubes near the inlets for rainbow and cutthroat has produced good results; anglers recommend using woolly buggers in black, olive and yellow. Boat anglers trolling crankbaits in brown and brook trout colors in 10 to 25 feet of water have been successful too. Shore anglers report good fishing with worms and PowerBait. Anglers have seen fish taking flies from the surface, making a fly and bubble setup a good option. The water temperatures are in the low to mid 60s.

Cutler Reservoir

Bass, Catfish, Crappie, Sunfish

No recent reports.

Regulations

Deer Creek Reservoir

Brown Trout, Cutthroat Trout, Largemouth Bass, Rainbow Trout, Smallmouth Bass, Walleye, Yellow Perch

(Jun 24) Anglers are catching walleye from boats and the island at sunrise. Try using a gold bladed panther martin or three-inch tube jigs. Boat anglers report great fishing using nightcrawlers and pop gear near the island area. Smallmouth bass are being caught near the shoreline. The island and main entrance now have gates. These gates close at 10 p.m. and reopen at 6 a.m. Campsites in the campground now require reservations.

Juvenile quagga mussels have been confirmed in a water sample taken from Deer Creek Reservoir. As such, all watercraft exiting Deer Creek are legally required to decontaminate. Decontamination stations are currently operating, but you may want to call ahead to check operating hours. Call the state park at 435-654-0171 to check on current conditions or visit Deer Creek on Facebook to see the latest updates. The reservoir is holding steady at 90 percent full.

Regulations

Duck Fork Reservoir

Colorado River Cutthroat Trout, Tiger Trout (hybrid)

(May 28) Snowdrifts are blocking road access.

Regulations

East Canyon Reservoir

Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout, Smallmouth Bass, Tiger Trout (hybrid)

(Jun 10) Fishing was great over the weekend. Anglers were having success from the shore and from boats. Join us at East Canyon for Free Fishing Day this Saturday! SR 65 East Canyon Northeast of Salt Lake City from Milepost 3 to 13.2 is now open.

East Fork of Sevier River

Brook Trout, Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout

FISH CONSUMPTION ADVISORY

(Jun 16) Kingston Canyon: Irrigation releases have begun at Otter Creek Reservoir, and flows are running at 34 cubic feet per second (cfs). This level is great for fishing, but the turbidity is still a little higher than the typical murk.

Black Canyon: Runoff has finally ceased, and the river is clearing up. Fishing is slow to fair, depending on the area you fish. Don't hesitate to move around.

Upper: The upper East Fork Sevier River and many of its tributaries hold good populations of brown, rainbow and brook trout. Look for mostly small fish, although you can occasionally catch a big brown or two just above Tropic Reservoir. These streams are perfect for honing your fly-fishing skills. Hopper-dropper combos can be particularly effective. Spin fishers can do well with small, flashy spinners.

Regulations

Echo Reservoir

Bass, Brown Trout, Channel Catfish, Crappie, Rainbow Trout

(Jun 10) On June 8, boat anglers reported fair fishing for 14- to 16-inch rainbows. Try using squid jigs tipped with a piece of worm. Overall fishing pressure has been very light as only a few anglers visit this reservoir.

Regulations

Electric Lake

Cutthroat Trout

(May 28) The lake is ice free and the road to the boat ramp is dry. Angler access is good on the north and south ends of the lake. The best bait is a redside shiner that inhabits the lake. Chub meat, worms, jigs, tube jigs and spoons can also be effective.

Enterprise Reservoirs

Rainbow Trout, Smallmouth Bass

FISH CONSUMPTION ADVISORY

(Jun 16) The upper reservoir is still fairly low, so don't expect good boat-launching conditions. Fishing has been good lately for 10- to 12-inch rainbows. Smallmouth bass are active and can be caught on small jigs tipped with nightcrawlers or on curly-tail grubs in dark colors. Catchable-sized rainbow trout have been stocked in the lower reservoir. Fishing is slower in the lower reservoir, but there have also been fewer people there.

Fairview Lakes

Rainbow Trout

(May 28) Both lakes are open and the road is accessible.

Farmington Pond

Bluegill, Channel Catfish, Largemouth Bass, Rainbow Trout

(Jun 17) Anglers report slow fishing during the day. A few anglers are getting bites. Fishing in the early mornings or late evenings when the fish are more active might give better results.

Regulations

Ferron Reservoir

Rainbow Trout

(May 28) Snowdrifts are blocking access.

Regulations

(May 28) Access to the DWR property from Highway 6 is available. Expect fair to good fishing for brown trout.

Fish Lake

Brook Trout, Brown Trout, Cutthroat Trout, Mackinaw (Lake Trout), Splake (hybrid), Rainbow Trout, Yellow Perch

STOP WHIRLING DISEASE

(Jun 16) Trollers are finding fair to good success for rainbow trout. Some of the recently stocked rainbows are also being caught from shore near Twin Creek. You can catch perch by jigging just outside the weedline. There are still a few prizes left over from the perch tournament for lucky anglers who catch tagged perch. Just check in at the Lakeside General Store before you go fishing to be eligible. Before you visit the lake, call the Fish Lake Lodge at 435-638-1000 to check on current conditions.

Regulations

Flaming Gorge Reservoir

Brown Trout, Burbot, Channel Catfish, Crayfish, Kokanee Salmon, Mackinaw (Lake Trout), Rainbow Trout, Smallmouth Bass

FISH CONSUMPTION ADVISORY

(Jun 17) Fishing is generally good across the reservoir.

Kokanee salmon: Fishing is fair to good. Surface temps have warmed, so expect fishing to get better for fish deeper in the water column. You'll find fish in 10 to 20 feet of water early, but 20 to 40 feet later in the day. If you're graphing and not catching fish, change out your lures. On two trips last weekend, one day spoons were more effective, the next day dodger/squids worked well. Good spoons to try include #1 and #2 Needlefish in pearl/red, silver/red and pearl bikini, along with Rocky Mountain Tackle Viper spoons in tequila sunrise and Caribbean sunset. Silver dodgers are a great attractor, followed by squids in pink, orange or white. Try smaller squids (1.5 inches) for wary fish. A good average speed is 1.8 miles per hour, but vary your speed by doing S-turns to see if fish want the lure faster or slower.

Rainbow trout: Fishing is good for rainbows. Whether casting jigs towards shore, trolling the open water or fishing from the shoreline, fishing for rainbows has picked up. While trolling last weekend for kokanee, anglers caught rainbow trout up to 20 inches using the gear presented above. Rainbows are also being caught along shallow points, near inflows and even along cliffs while casting tube jigs, curly tailed grubs and marabou jigs in olive, white, pink or black. Shore anglers are also having success soaking worms, PowerBait, etc., especially early in the morning and late in the day.

Lake trout: Fishing for lake trout is fair. Reports have been spotty, specifically in the Canyon Region. Anglers are catching a few smaller lake trout (pups) while trolling for kokanee and rainbows. Reports have also indicated good success long-lining crankbaits like Rapala Shad Raps early in the day. If you locate a concentration of lake trout in 50 to 100 feet, try dropping a white tube jig or jigging spoon, tipped with sucker or chub meat.

Smallmouth bass: Anglers report great fishing. Amallmouth are now active with the warmer temperatures. Try using a variety of methods and techniques. Jigs in 1/4- to 3/8-oz weights rigged with tubes, curly tails or hula grubs in earthtone colors are almost always a good choice. Drop shot rigs with four-inch artificial worms or minnow are also very effective. For some excitement, try top-water poppers early and late in the day when the conditions are calm. The surface activity can be exceptional this time of year.

Burbot: Fishing is fair for burbot. Burbot activity decreases in the warm summer months, so expect spotty success. Look for burbot on rocky points and shorelines in 20 to 40 feet of water. As always, fish at night and use glow-in-the-dark lures like Yamamoto grubs, Radical Glow tubes, Maniac Cutterbugs and Northland Buckshot spoons. Tip the lure with sucker or chub meat and recharge the glow frequently. Jig the presentation close to the bottom.

Regulations

Forsyth Reservoir

Rainbow Trout, Splake (hybrid), Tiger Trout (hybrid)

STOP WHIRLING DISEASE

(Jun 16) A recent netting survey found that most of the larger fish went downstream when the reservoir was drained last year. The tiger trout stocked last summer stayed in the creek, however, so there are plenty of 10-inch fish to catch as well as a handful of bigger fish.

Gigliotti Pond

Bluegill, Largemouth Bass, Rainbow Trout

(May 28) Fishing is good in the morning and evening. Try worms, PowerBait or salmon eggs. Some anglers have had good success with a variety of spinners and spoons. The pond should be restocked before the holiday weekend. The pond had already been stocked twice this spring, so the fish population will be more than adequate for a lot of fishing pressure during the upcoming weekend.

Regulations

Glassman's Pond

Bluegill, Black Crappie, Channel Catfish, Largemouth Bass, Rainbow Trout

No recent reports.

Regulations

Grantsville Reservoir

Brown Trout, Crayfish, Rainbow Trout

(Jun 11) There have been no angler reports. The pond has been heavily stocked the last three weeks with catchable rainbows. Try using a curly tail or spinnerbait for best results. Smallmouth fishing will start to increase with higher water temperatures, so you may try throwing some spinnerbaits tipped with bait.

Regulations

Green River

Brook Trout, Brown Trout, Channel Catfish, Cutthroat Trout, Northern Pike, Rainbow Trout

STOP NEW ZEALAND MUDSNAIL

(Jun 17) Fishing is good and fishing pressure is lowest during weekdays. Flows are up, so expect higher recreational or rafting pressure during the middle of the day and on weekends. Flows are anticipated to drop soon so check the USBR websote for current releases from Flaming Gorge Dam. Nymph fishing has been most productive using large scuds, soft hackles and San Juan worms. Rigs should be set deep, 10 to 14 feet, and fished along seams. Expect dry fly fishing to pick up as flows are reduced. A few cicadas have been spotted, but hatches have been minimal to this point. Spin fishing is almost always good. Marabou or hair jigs (Zig Jigs) in earthtone colors are a good option in shallow or deep water. Also, try crankbaits like Rapala Xraps and Husky Jerks in deeper water. Pinch down the barbs for a quick release. Brightly colored spoons and spinners will also entice fish.

(May 28) Lower: Catfish fishing is slow to hot, depending on the location, water flow and time of day. Chicken liver or commercial catfish baits work the best. Night fishing is often productive. Anglers are catching fish in the 12- to18-inch range.

Regulations

Gunlock Reservoir

Bluegill, Channel Catfish, Crappie, Green Sunfish, Largemouth Bass

FISH CONSUMPTION ADVISORY

(Jun 16) Gunlock Reservoir was treated with rotenone in October 2015 to remove illegally introduced smallmouth bass that pose a serious threat to native fish in the Virgin and Santa Clara rivers. We have begun restocking largemouth bass, bluegill and crappie, but fishing opportunities will be limited for two to three years while these populations establish.

Regulations

Gunnison Bend Reservoir

Catfish, Largemouth Bass, White Bass

(Jun 16) Anglers report fair to good fishing for a variety of fish species near the outlets of Gunnison Bend and DMAD reservoirs, as well as in the river and canals below the outlets.

Holmes Creek Reservoir

Bluegill, Crappie, Largemouth Bass, Walleye

(Jun 3) Many anglers were visiting on May 31, but the fishing was slow. The best way to fish the reservoir is to move around a lot. If the fish aren't biting, get up and move to a new spot. Please remember that this pond is on private property. Please make sure you obtain a free Walk-in Access authorization number before fishing and that you pack out what you pack in.

Regulations

Honeyville Ponds

Rainbow Trout

No recent reports.

Huntington Creek

Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout

STOP WHIRLING DISEASE

(May 28) The best fishing is within a mile of the dam. You won't find many fish below South Hughes Canyon because of last year's flash floods. Fly fishing success is fair to good. Anglers have hooked into brown trout up to 17 inches in the fly-only zone. Good fly choices include leeches, woolly buggers, prince nymphs, stoneflies, beadhead uglies, caddis larvae, hare's ear and the serendipity. Last year, 770 seven-inch cutthroat trout were stocked at the Forks of the Huntington campground, so anglers may find some of these planters in that vicinity or further up the left fork.

Regulations

Huntington North Reservoir

Crayfish, Largemouth Bass, Rainbow Trout

(May 28) Anglers report fair fishing for 16- to 19-inch rainbow trout. Fly anglers should use size 6–8 beadhead olive or brown woolly buggers. Anglers hoping to catch wipers should try crankbaits, rattle traps, jigs, tube jigs and spoons. The reservoir holds a fair number of four- to six-pound wipers according to recent survey results by the fisheries staff. So far this spring, we've stocked the reservoir twice with nine- to 10-inch rainbow trout. Try fishing at daylight for the best results.

Regulations

Huntington Reservoir

Brown Trout, Cutthroat Trout, Rainbow Trout, Tiger Trout (hybrid)

(May 28) Huntington — also known as Mammoth Reservoir — offers plenty of shoreline fishing opportunities. The reservoir may be entirely ice free by the holiday weekend. Tube jigs, curly tail jigs, streamers, gold spoons and Jakes Spin-a-lures have been effective. One angler recommended a sow bug imitation after seeing trout pick up live bugs near the shoreline. Fishing success has ranged from slow to hot, depending on weather conditions and other factors.

Regulations

Hyrum Reservoir

Bluegill, Largemouth Bass, Rainbow Trout, Tiger Trout (hybrid), Yellow Perch

STOP WHIRLING DISEASE

(Jun 17) Shore fishing slowed down this week. Anglers report doing well fishing from shore at the dam. Worms and PowerBait work the best. Anglers report good bass fishing. Trout aren't biting as frequently as they were, but anglers are still catching them trolling with pop gear.

Joe's Valley Reservoir

Crayfish, Cutthroat Trout, Rainbow Trout, Tiger Trout (hybrid), Splake (hybrid)

FISH CONSUMPTION ADVISORY

(May 28) Anglers report fair fishing for splake averaging 16–17 inches and two pounds. Shoreline anglers favor the west side in the general vicinity of the Seeley Creek tributary. Tube jigs, curly tail jigs, chub meat and whole chubs are common baits. Rapalas, Kastmasters and Jakes lures are popular as well.

Regulations

Johnson Reservoir

Cutthroat Trout, Tiger Musky, Rainbow Trout

Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout, Smallmouth Bass, Yellow Perch

STOP WHIRLING DISEASE

FISH CONSUMPTION ADVISORY

(Jun 24) Anglers are catching smallmouth along the shoreline with jigs, especially near the Rock Cliffs side. Trout are being caught near the steep banks by the dam. Fish early mornings and late evenings for the best bite. Continue to try worms, PowerBait or tube jigs from the shore. All docks are in, and all restrooms and campsites are open. The reservoir is at 92 percent and rising.

Regulations

Kaysville Ponds

Black bullhead, Bluegill, Channel Catfish, Green Sunfish, Largemouth Bass, Rainbow Trout

(Jun 17) Fishing is fair to good for those targeting bluegill and sunfish. Anglers report good fishing for catfish. Catfish and bluegill are mostly biting on worms. If you're fishing for bluegill, use a small piece of worm on a small hook and suspend it under a bobber. If you're targeting catfish, use a worm or any other stinky bait and cast it out and let it float to the bottom. Anglers report slow fishing for trout.

Lake Powell

Bluegill, Brown Trout, Channel Catfish, Crappie, Largemouth Bass, Northern Pike, Smallmouth Bass, Striped Bass, Rainbow Trout, Walleye

STOP QUAGGAG MUSCLE

FISH CONSUMPTION ADVISORY

(Jun 24) Lake elevation: 3,616 feet
Water temperatures: 76–82°F

The lake level continues to rise, which is modifying the shoreline. A rapidly changing shoreline is not so good for bass fishing but excellent for striper fishing.

The young bass that were so eager to hit lures along the shoreline two weeks ago are now a bit harder to find. You can find really good bass fishing — especially for larger fish — by dropshotting or using plastic grubs on a leadhead jig. The secret is to get the bait down to the old shoreline, focusing on areas where bass were holding before the lake began its rapid rise. For smallmouth bass, the correct depth is 15 to 25 feet deep. Largemouth bass are loving the brush just covered by rising water. Look for largemouth in the middle of a bush in about five feet of water. Bass fishing is still good, but it is best early and late in the day.

Slurping stripers have been extremely dependable all week. Anglers are seeing tight little slurping pods every morning, starting in Warm Creek (when heading out of Wahweap) or near Buoy 9 (when leaving Antelope Point). Slurps continue through the narrows into all of Padre Bay, Last Chance and up the main channel. Most slurp activity occurs from 6:30 to 9:30 a.m.

Approach the slurp quickly but stop one long cast away from the action. Cast ahead — or to the far side of the school — and bring the lure back through the feeding fish. The best lures this week include small surface lures, small jerk baits, swim baits, rattletraps and jigs. The size of slurping fish is increasing as some older fish have joined the young ones. Aggression levels are also increasing as school numbers climb and result in more competition.

I prefer surface fishing, but you can certainly catch more and bigger stripers while hovering over a huge school of adults in deeper water. Bait hotspots this week included Warm Creek Wall (Buoy 12), Labyrinth Wall (Buoy 18), Navajo Canyon points and the final deep pocket in the muddy water at the back of the canyon. Bait fishing is good at the end of most long canyons (for example, Last Chance and Rock Creek). Expect the same patterns to occur in the mid and northern lake.

Stripers that are not quick enough to keep up with the school fish are still found along the shore and will hit topwater lures. When one fish is hooked, play him slowly and cast lures out toward the hooked fish to catch the followers.

Walleye fishing is becoming more consistent, and you can typically find them in 12 to 20 feet of stained water in the backs of most canyons. There are areas where driftwood and debris are thick, which makes trolling almost impossible. Find small open areas without debris and troll right against the cliff wall to target walleye. Cast grubs tipped with nightcrawlers to select walleye over bass. Worm harnesses pulled behind a bottom bouncer or just cast and retrieved along the bottom in 15 feet of water work well now in the colored rising water.

Bluegill, green sunfish and catfish round out the fish species that are very active and willing to bite lures and baits for anglers of all ages.

The days are hot, but so is the fishing if you're in the right place at the right time. The right place is Lake Powell, and the right time is just as soon as you can get here.

Regulations

LaSal Mountains

Albino Trout, Bluegill, Grayling, Largemouth Bass, Rainbow Trout, Splake (hybrid)

(May 28) The U.S. Forest Service hopes to open the gate to Oowah Reservoir before the holiday weekend. Warner Lake will not be accessible by the weekend. Hidden and Dons lakes are accessible and both have been stocked with nine-inch rainbow trout. Fishing has been good at both locations. Dark Canyon is accessible but anglers may encounter some ice along the way. Stocking won't happen before the holiday weekend. Kens Lake was stocked with nearly 3,000 eight-inch rainbow trout earlier this spring. Conservation Officer Adam Wallerstein recommends chartreuse PowerBait for trout and small crankbaits for bass. Recreation Coordinator Walt Maldonado reports good fishing conditions and recommends fishing around the dam — use Jake's lures for trout and jerk baits for largemouth bass.

(Jun 17) Fishing has picked up for most anglers. Local angler Craig Bills recently fished the reservoir and caught and released 15 fish — a mix of rainbows and cutthroat. He had the best success using three-inch tube jigs. Most fish caught were between 15 and 20 inches, and the biggest was a 22-inch rainbow trout. The daily limit at Lost Creek is a total of four fish. Three of the fish must be under 15 inches, and one fish may be over 22 inches. You must immediately release all fish between 15 and 22 inches.

Millsite Reservoir

Cutthroat Trout, Rainbow Trout

(May 28) State Park Manager Jonathan Hunt noted that Ferron Creek is running high and according to local anglers, that slows down the catch rate. Despite the high runoff, Jonathan said anglers have done fairly well from shore with worms or PowerBait. Trout up to 17 inches have been caught in May.

Minersville Reservoir

Rainbow Trout, Smallmouth Bass

STOP WHIRLING DISEASE

(Jun 16) Trout are surface-feeding on midges in the morning before the wind comes up. Later in the day, you can catch them by trolling or fishing streamers and lures under the surface. The trout are healthy and strong this year. Water temperatures are reaching the low 60s, so smallmouth bass are more active. Many wipers in the three- to four-pound range are also present, but anglers haven't shared any reports on wiper success.

(Jun 24) Bass and bluegill fishing is going strong at Pelican. Recent reports indicate good fishing from the shoreline and from boats. For bluegill, try floating worms under a bobber, retrieving small jigs or drifting worm-tipped jigs from a boat. For bass, look to the weeds, structure and along the shorelines with plastic worm and crayfish patterns. Pumpkinseed, black and blue-colored plastics have been working well. Yellow PowerBait worms and spinner baits are also great options.

Provo River

Brook Trout, Brown Trout, Cutthroat Trout, Rainbow Trout, Walleye

(Jun 24) Lower: Anglers report seeing bears along the river and near the reservoir. Please be cautious and avoid contact. If you spot a bear, please call our regional office at 801-491-5678. Anglers are seeing pale morning duns, so try fishing during the cooler times of day, or when it's cloudy. Some blue-winged olive flies are catching fish off guard in the later hours of the day. Try using sizes 18-22. Anglers report hearing cicadas, so they might be worth trying. Try golden stonefly patterns, PMD adults and spinners in the early and late hours of the day. Be aware that June suckers are moving into the Provo River (and all the other Utah Lake tributaries), and anglers have reported catching them frequently. You must immediately release any June suckers you catch. The flows coming out of Deer Creek are at 401 cubic feet per second, with a nice, steady slow down near Harbor Drive at 53 cubic feet per second.

Middle: Water flows are extremely high and all anglers should be extremely cautious. Levels should be back down to 300 cubic feet per second by Saturday morning (June 25), but it will take a few days for fish to readjust. Angler spotted green drakes and golden stoneflies before the increased flows — those should return shortly after flows begin to normalize. The water temperature is hovering around 44 °F. The high flows are moving extremely fast, with current levels near 1,278 cubic feet per second. The flows near the Jordanelle release are at 1,310 cubic feet per second and the average at Charleston is around 1,438 cubic feet per second.

Salem Pond

Bluegill, Channel Catfish, Rainbow Trout

(Jun 24) The pond has been heavily stocked with channel catfish and trout, but it won't be stocked again until August, so take advantage of high catch rates now. Wipers were also stocked into the pond last week, so be on the lookout for that new addition. If you're targeting catfish, try using nightcrawlers, shrimp or chicken livers on the bottom of the pond. You may also try using spinnerbaits, Jake's lures and garlic PowerBait fished from the boat ramp, near the bridge or at the docks inside the park. Use crankbaits or floating Rapalas to catch bass near the vegetation. Important: Black crappie were illegally stocked into the pond. The movement of aquatic species is illegal and is considered a class A misdemeanor. Please call the UTIP hotline number (1-800-662-3337) or the DWR's Springville office (801-491-5678) if you have any information about this illegal stocking.

With water temperatures on the rise, bass fishing has begun to pick up and anglers have caught several nice bass already. Bluegill fishing is off to a great start; anglers are seeing smaller fish move into the shallows and larger fish stack up in about six to 15 feet of water. For bluegill, try vertical jigging with small worm-tipped jigs. A number of bluegill and rainbow trout have been tagged for the Fox family fishing contest. Look for yellow tags that include the word 'Win' and a number.

Regulations

Strawberry Reservoir

Crayfish, Cutthroat Trout, Kokanee Salmon, Rainbow Trout, Smallmouth Bass

(Jun 24) Anglers are report hot fishing around the lake! If you're fishing near the Ladders, try using two- to three-inch tube jibs in chartreuse or white. Tip the hooks with nightcrawlers or PowerBait (colors may vary). Boaters are having success near the Chicken Creek west area with poppers and dodgers at around 35 feet. If you're targeting kokanee, Strawberry Bay guides recommend using pink dodgers and squid tipped with pink grubs at 35to 40 feet. Anglers are reporting good fishing near the Soldier Creek side. Marabou jigs in black and green have produced fish, as well as lime green and orange PowerBait. You can also try using a gold or silver Jake's lure (size 1/6-ounce) or gold Rapalas. Fly anglers are having success using olive-colored leeches and scuds in sizes 12-16 near the Soldier Creek dam. The Strawberry Bay Marina tagged fish contest is in full swing.
