(Oct 26) The surface water temperature is 53F and continues to drop. The water level has dropped about 3.5 feet this year, but you can still launch a boat at the Utah State Park marina, 1st Point, Cisco Beach and Rainbow Cove boat ramps in Utah. Courtesy docks are also in the water at all locations. There is also boat launching available on the Idaho side of the lake at their North Beach ramp. The road is being repaved along the entire east side of the lake in Utah. As of October 23, the road is mostly paved from Laketown to the Rainbow Cove Boat Ramp area. There are no delays due to construction. Paving will continue, but we will try to provide updates on access as frequently as possible.

Cutthroat trout fishing has been good and lake trout fishing has been very good. Anglers report the best fishing when trolling with downriggers and minnow type lures off Rainbow Cove and North Eden for both cutthroat and lake trout. Try trolling in very shallow in the rocky shoreline areas. Last weekend, anglers were catching fish at 10 feet in areas where the depth was 40 feet. Go shallow in the mornings and move out into deeper water as the sun comes up. Some anglers are also catching cutthroat and lake trout by trolling and jigging off the Gus Rich Point/Rockpile area. You might also want to try fishing off the Idaho State Park on the east side of the lake and off of the Utah State Park marina. If you are jigging for trout, use tube jigs or swim baits in various colors in 1/2- to one ounce sizes and three- to six-inch long tipped with cisco, sucker meat or Gulp minnows. Reliable colors are white, green and chartreuse. Shore fishing has been very good for spawning lake trout for anglers casting large spinners and spoons, using fly rods with large rabbit fur or articulated sculpin patterns. The best spots have been off the Utah State Park marina and off the North Beach Jetty in Idaho. The best times to fish are from about 5 p.m. until midnight and then again just prior to sunrise.

Flaming Gorge Reservoir

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

FISH CONSUMPTION ADVISORY

(Nov 8) Please keep in mind that Sheep Creek (the physical creek) from Flaming Gorge Reservoir upstream to the Ashley National Forest Service boundary is closed until 6 a.m. on Nov. 24. The fishing at Flaming Gorge varies, depending on which species you're targeting.

Lake trout: Anglers report good fishing for small lake trout while trolling or jigging in 50 to 100 feet of water near the main channel points and ridges. Watch for suspended concentrations on your fish finder and vertically jig a 1/4- to 3/8-ounce 3.5-inch white or glow-in-the-dark tube jig (Dry Creek Outfitters) tipped with sucker/chub meat. If you're trolling, try spoons like RMT Viper Serpents, Northland Forage Minnows, Super Dupers and #3 Needlefish. Small lake trout (shorter than 25 inches) have become overabundant, causing competition for food and a decrease in growth rates. If this trend continues, it will affect the trophy lake trout (less food to grow big fish). Please help by harvesting your limit of lake trout smaller than 25 inches. This size class of fish is also a tasty meal for the dinner table.

Kokanee salmon: Closed to possession until Nov. 30.

Rainbow trout: As temperatures drop, expect excellent fishing from the shoreline and boats. A boat is essential to access most of the lower reservoir; however, there is shore fishing near the Dam Point Visitor Center and boat ramps. Marabou jigs are very effective, especially in earth tones and quarter-ounce weights. Spinners, spoons and other jigs will work as well. Boat anglers will likely pick up rainbows on small spoons and spinners trolled at depths of 20 to 40 feet.

Smallmouth bass: Fishing is slowing down with the recent drop in temperatures. Jigs mimicking crayfish, their primary forage, are usually a good option.

Burbot: There haven't been many reports from anglers, but catch rates should improve now that water temperatures are in the mid to upper 50s. Typically, the highest catch rates are found near Firehole Boat Launch in late October to early November. Target burbot on rocky points and shorelines in 20 to 40 feet of water at night. Try using glow-in-the-dark lures like Yamamoto grubs, Radical Glow tubes, Maniac Cutterbugs and Northland Buckshot spoons. Tip the lure with sucker/chub meat, recharge the glow frequently and jig the presentation a couple of inches from the bottom.

Marabou jigs or tube jigs in earth tones, white/chartreuse and ginger are a good option in shallow or deep water. Rainbow or brown trout patterned crankbaits also work well.

FISH CONSUMPTION ADVISORY

(Oct 25) by Wayne Gustaveson

Lake elevation: 3,591 feet Water temperatures: 66F

We will be sampling fish with gill nets at Good Hope Bay and Rincon Monday through Friday of next week. Therefore, this will be the last regular weekly report for 2018. Each year we do gill net studies to document changes in fish populations, health indexes, and to help us understand how the fishery is doing compared to previous years. The gill netting sites include Wahweap, San Juan (Piute), Rincon and Good Hope Bay (Red Canyon). Gill netting data dates back to 1973 so there is a long history of netting data for comparison.

This week we placed nets in the San Juan from Piute Canyon toward the Great Bend. The most numerous fish species collected were gizzard shad (from 4 to 20 inches) and striped bass. Smallmouth bass numbers were below average but that may have more to do with the stormy weather or changing habitat encountered. Results from the other three stations will help us understand that more fully.

We did have some volunteers show up to help us pick fish out of a couple of nets. We politely told the two otters to leave the fish in the nets and to stop eating the tails off the smallmouth bass, which seemed to be their preferred fish. They looked quizzically at us and then went on their way to a new spot.

After the netting was completed we went fishing along the large wall on the right side before entering the Great Bend. We caught a couple of stripers trolling and a few more on spoons but catching was not fast enough. We went up the Great Bend and saw two fishing boats with anglers willing to give us fish reports. The first report indicated good smallmouth fishing along the canyon walls. The second report of a striper boil caused us to turn around and head back downstream to where the water depth in the Great Bend was 30 to 40 feet. Stripers were not boiling on the sunny side of the channel where they had been reported in the morning but we saw splashes in the shade of the afternoon sun. We chased splashes and caught 20 stripers on surface lures, crank baits and spoons. They moved quickly over a half mile area but each time we saw a splash we caught a few more fish. It was a great way to finish our last trip to the San Juan this year.

Reports from Good Hope Bay indicated slow fishing which improved with distance traveled upstream. The mudline near Trachyte produced stripers caught trolling and spooning with the best habitat being quick drop-offs where the depth quickly changed from 10 to 25 feet. The best trolling lures were purple Flicker Shad and Rattletraps and a black-backed jointed Rapala.

The crazy weather lately is very unusual for late October where calm weather is the normal. As those normal fall weather conditions return and stabilize expect fishing success to improve for all species.

For now, the best option is to target the 30 to 40 foot depth strata when looking for stripers near the back of a canyon. Trolling is the best way to find fish now but as the water cools stripers will seek deeper water and spooning will be the best technique.

Tip: When you're bottom fishing, use something to float your bait about 18 to 24 inches off the bottom. This will keep your worm or bait above the mud and weeds where the fish will have an easier time finding it. Fishing has been best throughout the middle of the day.

There is no daily bag limit for any species, including largemouth and smallmouth bass, rainbow and brown trout, and bluegill. This change will remain in effect until Dec. 31, 2018. Work on the dam has begun and will continue through the winter. We will not stock brown trout or rainbow trout in 2018 or 2019, and we hope to begin restoring the fishery in 2020.
