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.

American Fork River

Rainbow Trout

No recent reports.

Regulations

Baker Reservoir

Crayfish, Brown Trout, Green Sunfish, Rainbow Trout

(May 6) Catchable-sized rainbow trout have been stocked. Fishing is fair with bait, lures and flies. Some large brown trout are also present. The reservoir is currently full and spilling.

Bear Lake

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

STOP WHIRLING DISEASE

(May 20) The cutthroat spawn is underway. Anglers report good fishing in shallow areas, but it sometimes requires patience. Anglers are also finding fish at basically two different depths. Try fishing in 60 to 65 feet of water (off the east side) from Rainbow Cove to North Eden, or fish the same location in about 10 to 20 feet of water, parallel to the shore. Another good spot to try right now is from the marina north to Fish Haven Creek in Idaho. Try using different sizes of Rapala-type lures, dodgers, squid or flatfish. In the shallow water, use a simple flat line and let it out from 100 to 175 feet behind the boat. The boat will typically spook the fish in the shallow water, but if you run the lure far enough behind the boat, the fish will return to the shallow water zone. In the deeper water, you can use downriggers or lead-core line to reach the proper depth. If you jig fish, try three-quarters to one-ounce tube jigs tipped with cisco, sucker meat, or even worms right on the bottom. With the cold water, fish can be found at any depth this time of the year. If you are not catching fish, keep moving to different depths until you find the active fish. Please remember that you must release cutthroat trout that don't have a healed fin clip.

Regulations

Bear River

Brook Trout, Brown Trout, Bullhead Catfish, Channel Catfish, Crappie, Cutthroat Trout, Green Sunfish, Largemouth Bass, Rainbow Trout, Walleye, Whitefish, Yellow Perch

No recent reports.

Beaver Mountain Lakes

Rainbow Trout

No recent reports.

Beaver River

Brook Trout, Brown Trout, Cutthroat Trout, Rainbow Trout

STOP WHIRLING DISEASE

(May 6) Flows have increased slightly, but are not yet as high as normal irrigation releases. Look for fair to good fishing. Habitat work in the area of the old dance hall has now concluded, so the water should start to clear up.

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

(May 28) Reports indicate good fishing for rainbows. Try trolling spoons at 15 to 20 feet. Colors to try are red, pink and silver. Water temperatures have been on the rise, and a few anglers report catching smallmouth in shallower waters. As things warm up, focus your attention on the rocky shorelines. Crawfish or yellow perch patterns should produce results.

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

(May 28) As of May 15, the river was still a little high, but the water was clearer and easier to fish. Most anglers are still waiting for the salmon fly hatch. The key is to be on the water daily. This hatch occurs quickly and is prolific. With the higher water, fish tight to the banks and in the slack water. Streamers are always a good choice, and green and black seem to be the most effective colors.

Blue Mountains

Brook Trout, Northern Pike, Rainbow Trout

No recent reports.

Boulder Mountain Lakes

Brook Trout, Rainbow Trout

(May 6) Most lakes are now open to fishing for the year. Look for access to improve at lakes under the rim in the next two to three weeks while the Boulder Top won't be accessible until June.

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

(May 28) On May 23, the water temperature was 52F. Anglers report seeing lots of fish jumping. Although the fish are biting, anglers are having a hard time landing them. Try using rainbow PowerBait and fishing it just off the bottom. Some anglers are also using nymphs, bread and worms. The pond was stocked earlier this week with 1,000 eight-inch trout.

Regulations

Box Creek Reservoirs

Brook Trout, Rainbow Trout

No recent reports.

Brough Reservoir

Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout, Smallmouth Bass

FISH CONSUMPTION ADVISORY

(May 28) Anglers report good bank fishing for rainbows, using spinners. Fly fishermen have also been doing well. A recent survey of the reservoir showed that there are plenty of nice rainbows.

Regulations

Browne Reservoir

Brook Trout, Kokanee Salmon, Rainbow Trout

(May 28) The lake is full and running over the spillway. The road is now open. However, we haven't received any recent fishing reports.

Bullock Reservoir

Largemouth Bass, Rainbow Trout, Tiger Musky (hybred)

(May 28) Recent reports indicate slow fishing with little shoreline access because of vegetation. Small boats or float tubes are recommended. Water flows through the reservoir are high at the moment causing and water is very murky.

Regulations

Burraston Ponds

Albino Trout, Bluegill, Rainbow Trout

(May 28) The pond has been heavily stocked with catchable rainbow trout for Memorial Day weekend. 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. A new restroom will be installed during the week of June 13, so avoid the construction zone on the north end of the pond, near the rope swing.

Regulations

Calder Reservoir

Rainbow Trout

(May 28) Catchable rainbows have recently been stocked.

Regulations

Causey Reservoir

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

(May 28) On May 18, we sampled Causey Reservoir and found several large fish, including kokanee salmon, Bonneville cutthroat trout, rainbow trout, tiger trout, brown trout and a red-sided shiner. The sampling took place along the shore near the dam, by the Causey Estates inlet and down the South Fork Arm. Angling pressure continues to be very light. The reservoir is full, and some water is flowing over the outlet. The water is also very murky, so visibility is low.

Regulations

Chalk Creek

Cutthroat Trout, Rainbow Trout

No recent reports.

Clear Creek

Rainbow Trout

(May 6) 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. The water is currently running high and murky with runoff.

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 1620 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

(May 28) Fishing has been a little slow. Anglers' report a few tiger muskie, wipers and trout trolling crank baits, spinners and spoons. Rainbow color has been the top producer this week. Tiger muskie in the 18- to 20-inch range have also been found while casting toward shore with crawfish pattern plastics.

Regulations

Crouse Reservoir

Rainbow Trout

(May 20) Water levels are extremely low.

Currant Creek

Brown Trout, Cutthroat Trout, Rainbow Trout

(May 20) Fly-fishing anglers have reported good fishing below the dam on Currant Creek using subsurface patterns, including beaded San Juan worms and Prince Nymphs.

Currant Creek Reservoir

Cutthroat Trout, Rainbow Trout

(May 28) There are reports of good fishing near the inlets for decent sized rainbows. Successful anglers have been using wooly buggers from tubes and trolling crank baits, spoons and worm rigs. The campgrounds are opening up and access is good though a little muddy from recent rains. On a side note: fly fishermen have reported good fishing below the dam on Currant Creek using subsurface patterns including beaded San Juan worms and Prince Nymphs.

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

(May 28) Anglers are catching smallmouth bass along the shoreline with jigs. According to the most recent reports, water temperatures are hovering around 56F. Rangers report that the docks are in at the main ramp. The Wallsburg day-use area is now open. The Island and main entrance now have gates. These gates close at 10 p.m. and re-open at 6 a.m. The Chokecherry campground has all sites open, with sewer and electric hook-up only. Campground sites must be reserved ahead of time they are no longer available on a first-come, first-served basis.

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 rising and is currently 94 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)

(May 28) You'll find great fishing for both bass and trout. If you're fishing from a boat, try bottom fishing with PowerBait or use pop gear with a worm. State Route 65 to East Canyon (northeast of Salt Lake City) is now open from milepost 3 to 13.2.

East Fork of Sevier River

Brook Trout, Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout

FISH CONSUMPTION ADVISORY

(May 6) Kingston Canyon: Irrigation releases have begun at Otter Creek Reservoir and flows are running at 33 cubic feet per second (cfs). The river has been a little murky lately because of low-elevation snowmelt. This flow is still fishable and now is a great time to hit the river (before it increases to 100 cfs).

Black Canyon: The river may be a little murky from low-elevation snowmelt.

Upper: Access is good. Flows are a little high and murky, but not enough to make fishing difficult.

Regulations

Echo Reservoir

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

(May 12) Although fishing success has slowed, anglers are still catching fish from time to time.

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

(May 6) The upper reservoir is still fairly low, so don't expect good boat-launching conditions. Fishing has been good for 10- to 12-inch rainbows. Catchable-sized rainbow 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

(May 28) On May 23, water temperatures were around 46F. The pond is still at full capacity, and water is flowing over the outlet. The water continues to be very murky because of incoming runoff. The pond was recently stocked with 500 eight-inch rainbow trout.

Regulations

Ferron Reservoir

Rainbow Trout

(May 28) Snowdrifts are blocking access.

Regulations

Fish Creek (lower)

Rainbow Trout

(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

(May 6) We are officially in ice-off limbo at Fish Lake. Ice still covers about 75 percent of the lake, but it's very rotten, unstable ice. A few windy days could blow the ice off, but it may still be a couple weeks before it's gone. Remember that boats are not allowed on the lake until all the ice is gone. There are still about 15 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.

Regulations

Flaming Gorge Reservoir

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

FISH CONSUMPTION ADVISORY

(May 28) Kokanee: Slow to fair fishing but starting to pick up. Fishing is getting better with water temperatures moving into the middle to upper 50s. Many of the fish are being caught in water 10 to 20 feet deep. Try using a planer board to get your lure off to the side. When kokanee are in shallow waters, they shy away from boats and noise. Some are also being caught deeper water, 30 to 40 feet, making them more susceptible to downriggers. Silver dodgers with pink or orange squids trolled around 1.8 mph have worked well. Shorten the leader between the squid and dodger to about 10 inches to put more action in the squid. Vary trolling speeds by doing S-turns and watch the sonar. Put the offering where the fish are marked. Many of the kokanee caught last weekend were in the 17 to 19 inch range in the Utah portion of the reservoir.

Rainbow trout: Rainbow fishing has been hot this last week because the lake has warmed. Rainbows and cutthroat are coming off the spawn, but still look for concentrations of fish near streams and sometimes launch areas. Warning: Others are also looking there and we've seen conflicts this year between anglers along the shore and anglers in boats. Boaters need to have the right of way on the ramp and boat docks when they are launching and pulling out. Rainbows are also found in other areas, look for up to 18-inch-plus rainbows on shallow flats, along cliffs and points in 10 to 20 feet of water trolling small brightly colored spoons, plastic squids or casting using spoons, small tubes and jigs tipped with meal worm. You may also catch some small cutthroat (10 to 14 inches) that were stocked into the reservoir last summer. Anglers also did well for sizeable rainbow trout last week while trolling for kokanee and casting jigs for smallmouth bass, a clear sign of their opportunistic nature.

Lake trout: Reports between storms have indicated spotty fishing. With warmer weather and a bit less wind, anglers should try a slow shallow troll along the flats and sloping shorelines or go deep along the main channel. If you locate a school or find a submerged ridge, try jigging with spoons or white tube jigs tipped with sucker/chub meat. Keep your smaller fish. Removing them will help the fishery, and they provide some tasty treats. Netting conducted last week showed high numbers of smaller lake trout (18 to 20 inches) in Sheep Creek Bay, making this a likely hot spot for both trolling and jigging. Look at the points and breaks along the Red Cliffs.

Smallmouth bass: With water temperatures in the 50s, smallmouth bass fishing is picking up. Try casting jerk baits like Xraps into shallow water and retrieve with a pull, pull, rest cadence. Most of the hits will come on the rest. Don't be surprised to catch rainbow trout or even pup lake trout using this technique. Good colors are silver and pink. With some additional warming, smallmouth bass should start to 'bed-up' in the middle 60s. Smallmouth bass make a tasty meal and it's beneficial to harvest the 10-fish limit. Harvest the more abundant, smaller bass and release the larger ( greater than 12-inches) to live and fight another day.

Burbot: Some anglers have caught fish in the open waters from boats and from the shore. Look for rocky structure (smallmouth habitat) and depths of 40 to 70 feet in the early evening. As the evening progresses, try fishing shallower water to 10 feet, and move around if you're not catching fish. As always, good lures are glow-n-the-dark Yamamoto grubs, Radical Glow tubes and jigging spoons (glow colors) tipped with sucker/chub meat. Thanks to all the anglers, between the tournaments and general fishing. There are thousands fewer burbot eating everything else.

Regulations

Forsyth Reservoir

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

STOP WHIRLING DISEASE

(May 6) A recent netting survey revealed 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 ten-inch fish to catch, as well as a handful of bigger fish.

Fort Buenaventura

Rainbow Trout

No recent reports.

Regulations

Fremont River

Rainbow Trout

STOP WHIRLING DISEASE

(May 6) Johnson Reservoir is full and spilling, so flows have come up and the fishing has slowed down a little.

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

(May 14) There have been no recent angler reports. The reservoir will be stocked soon. For overwintered trout, try using a curly tail or spinnerbait for best results. Smallmouth fishing will start to increase with higher water temperatures, so you might 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

(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.

(May 28) Blue wing hatches have slowed, but there's still a few lingering. On warmer days, some anglers are also successful using terrestrial patterns like ants, crickets and hoppers. Match the hatch on the surface or try nymphs (zebra midges or baetis) deep along flow seams and shorelines. The water is a bit murky from water flowing through the dam so streamers are a good choice (especially on overcast days). Try sculpin, rainbow or brown trout imitations. Spin fishing is almost always good. Marabou or hair jigs (Zig Jigs) in earth-tone colors are always a good option in shallow or deeper water. Try crankbaits like Rapala Husky Jerks or Xraps in deeper water. Brightly colored spoons and spinners will also entice fish. Fishing pressure is lowest during the weekdays. Flow reports indicate Flaming Gorge Dam is currently releasing steady minimum flows of 800 cfs.

Regulations

Gunlock Reservoir

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

FISH CONSUMPTION ADVISORY

No recent reports.

Regulations

Gunnison Bend Reservoir

Catfish, Largemouth Bass, White Bass

(May 6) 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. We received one report of good largemouth bass fishing.

Holmes Creek Reservoir

Bluegill, Crappie, Largemouth Bass, Walleye

(May 28) On May 23, surface water temperatures were around 57F on the east side of the reservoir. Fishing has been fairly 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 68 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

(May 28) Hyrum has been a little slow from shore this week. Boating anglers did better. If you're in a boat, try using pop gear and a worm. PowerBait has also been working well. You'll find the fastest fishing early in the morning.

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 1617 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

STOP WHIRLING DISEASE

FISH CONSUMPTION ADVISORY

(May 28) Anglers are catching smallmouth bass along the shoreline with jigs and gold-colored floating Rapalas. According to the most recent reports, water temperatures are hovering around 55F. Try using traditional baits (worms or PowerBait) and tube jigs from the shoreline. All docks are in, and all restrooms and campsites are open. Fees will increase starting Memorial Day weekend. The reservoir is 73 percent full and rising.

Regulations

Kaysville Ponds

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

(May 28) On May 23, surface water temperatures were around 59F. Fishing was fair for most anglers but good enough to make a visit worthwhile. Try using salmon eggs or worms and fishing them on the bottom. The restrooms at the second pond are open. The pond was stocked earlier this week with 625 eight-inch rainbows.

Regulations

Kolob Reservoir

Brook Trout, Cutthroat Trout, Rainbow Trout

(May 6) The ice is off and the road around the lake is snow free. Access is still not possible across Cedar Mountain. The water level is rising. Fishing has been fair to good, especially around Crystal Creek pipe. Kolob Reservoir is closed to bait fishing until May 21.

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

(May 28) Early Monday morning, you couldn't walk to the Stateline Ramp courtesy dock without getting wet up to the knees because the lake had risen that much overnight. Lake Powell is coming up fast as the spring runoff builds. Lake level is four feet higher this week than last. The lake will rise even more this week. If you're camping, it will be necessary to readjust mooring lines daily. Rising water also impacts fishing success.

Lake water temperature is holding in the mid 60s, which makes all fish happy. The full moon this week delayed good fishing success until mid morning, and then afternoon fishing was just great particularly for stripers on bait. Early-morning bait fishing at the dam and other steep canyon wall locations was slower than usual. Anglers caught fish randomly, but big schools were not active. At 10:30 a.m. that changed and schools became hyperactive. Still, the good bait-fishing spots further uplake (Navajo Canyon, Warm Creek Wall, Labyrinth Wall, etc.) seem to be better than the dam and buoy 3 now. Run uplake and try some of the spots that have not been fished as much to find a secluded location with a ton of fish ready to bite.

The striper spawn is now imminent. Each year I dream of finding a spawning school where it is possible to catch a mature fish or even a trophy every cast for hours at a time. I say dream because it all happens at night when I am home in bed. If you are camping on the lake it would be wise to check the nearby coves and points by trolling and casting shallow running crankbaits, just as the sun sets. You may be near the spawning school that has been inactive all day long and becoming super active at night. My search for spawners happens early in the morning before the sun rises. I look along the east walls of the tall canyons where the suns rays are delayed by morning shade. Ripe males and females can be caught trolling and casting in the pre-dawn light. These fish are bigger and healthier than the stripers caught on bait during the day.

Trees and brush along the shoreline are getting much closer to becoming fish habitat as the lake rapidly rises. Largemouth bass, bluegill and crappie will gladly leave their current barren locations to find a tumbleweed or tamarisk tree in three feet of water. They love to be near, live in and never depart from brush structure once found. Fish near brush for these fish as the lake comes up.

Smallmouth bass are still living on the rocks. They have built nests to spawn and some are still actively guarding the nests. As the lake rises, smallmouth bass tend to stay at the same nesting location. This week, adult smallmouth will be four feet deeper than last week since the lake came up that much. Fishing success is still really good for those using jig heads and plastic baits worked along the bottom from 10 to 25 feet deep. Do not hesitate to use top-water baits for bass at first light in the morning and as the sun sets at night.

Channel catfish are awake and actively eating. They will spawn in early June as the water temperature climbs to 72F. Anglers are catching them all day long now on bait fished on the bottom. Some striper anglers are catching catfish each day as the anchovy temporarily resides on the bottom near a striper fishing spot.

Walleye fishing is now at its peak. The best locations are in the upper lake in the backs of the canyons where water color is stained but not muddy from the huge runoff event currently happening. Reports of walleye caught in huge numbers are coming in from Red Canyon in the far north and many canyons between Bullfrog and Good Hope. My choice to catch walleye would be from Bullfrog down to San Juan including the Escalante. In a new fishing area my first exploratory efforts would be to troll bottom bouncers or flat line lures in 15-30 feet of water near shore or over open water reefs. When you find walleye, target that area specifically with bass grubs or worm harnesses tipped with a tasty nightcrawler. Work the worm slowly along the bottom in the area where a walleye was randomly caught to find many more in the walleye gathering spot.

UDWR is actively tagging walleye to have target fish in the water for anglers to catch from July 1, 2016 to June 30, 2017. If you register for the contest and catch a tagged walleye, you will be awarded a gift certificate donated by Sportsmans Warehouse. We'll share more information as well as contest rules and signup details prior to July 1. For now, practice honing your walleye skills.

(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.

STOP WHIRLING DISEASE

(May 28) Back on May 15, the water was a bit high but starting to clear up. Anglers reported success around Ricks Spring and Temple Fork Canyon. Red San Juans are always a good bet. You might also want to try any blue-winged olive (bwo) nymphs or black midge pupas. Be sure to fish close to the banks, under impoundments and in slack water. Those spots are where the big fish like to sit and wait for baitfish or other food sources.

(May 28) Fishing continues to be good. On May 21, anglers were using spinners to catch fish from the shore. Anglers who fished from boats were catching fish while trolling with crank baits. Catch rates seem to be best where the water is clearer. 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.

Otter Creek Reservoir

Rainbow Trout

STOP WHIRLING DISEASE

(May 6) The reservoir's capacity is at 82 percent and steadily rising. Fishing is fair to good. A recent fish population survey found many of those 16- to 18-inch rainbows that Otter Creek is famous for. These fish are in great shape, weighing in at two to three pounds. We also found a handful of four-pound wipers, and one pushing six pounds. Wipers have been a little hard to come by for both anglers and our monitoring surveys since we started stocking them in 2011. The fish caught in the survey were in great shape and are doing well in the reservoir. It appears we just need to stock more. Anglers are noticing sores and spots on the skin of rainbow trout caught at Otter Creek. These are caused by parasites attacking the fish during times of high stress, particularly when the water is low and warm in late summer and early fall. Apparently, the parasites were a little worse last year, as they have persisted through the winter on some fish. Spawning stress may also be contributing to the parasites. The spots should disappear when conditions improve as the reservoir fills and rainbow trout finish spawning. The meat is safe to eat, as long as it is cooked properly.

Regulations

Palisade Reservoir

Cutthroat Trout, Rainbow Trout, Tiger Trout (hybrid)

(May 28) Water temperatures are hovering around 60F, and the reservoir is 70 percent full. The docks are in and ready to go. Anglers are catching big fish from the shoreline. Broodstock hatchery trout have been stocked into the reservoir and are fun to catch. The average broodstock fish weighs about nine pounds! All campgrounds and campsites are now open. Try using Mepps or Jake's spinnerbaits and tip them with PowerBait or nightcrawlers.

Panguitch Lake

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

(May 6) Hungry rainbow, cutthroat and tiger trout are cruising close to shore. Anglers are catching small and medium-sized rainbows from shore with popular baits like PowerBait and worm/marshmallow rigs. For larger rainbows, try casting black or white marabou jigs. Big cutthroat and tiger trout will bite on cut bait (chub, sucker, frozen minnows) or white tube jigs tipped with a small piece of cut bait. Most of the cutthroats and tigers are in the slot and must be released, so use single hooks and set the hook as soon as you see a fish pick up the bait. If the fish still swallows the hook, cut the line. A recent netting survey found rainbow trout up to three pounds, cutthroat trout up to five pounds and tiger trout up to seven pounds.

STOP QUAGGAG MUSCLE

FISH CONSUMPTION ADVISORY

(May 6) The water temperature is in the upper 60s by afternoon, and bass fishing is good to excellent. It has become popular to 'fizz' a bass caught in deep water to help it deflate its air bladder and get back down. However, when you puncture the air bladder it can do major damage to the fish. Not only is the fish susceptible to infections through the wound, it now has a hole in its air bladder and it may not be able to re-inflate it. This means that, even though the fish goes down, it may never come back up. It is best to let the fish deflate its air bladder on its own. Although it may be hard to watch the fish float away, they eventually can get back down it just takes time. If you want to avoid this situation altogether, don't fish in deep water.
