Regulations

Bear Lake

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

STOP WHIRLING DISEASE

(Jun 16) The lake has been stocked with cutthroat trout throughout the week. Anglers have recently reported catching fish in approximately 25 feet of water by trolling at low speed. If you're fishing from shore, try using crankbaits or spoons.

(Jun 4) Bear Lake is nearly full, and you can launch a boat at all ramps on the Utah side of the lake. This includes the Bear Lake State Park marina, First Point, Cisco Beach and Rainbow Cove boat ramps. The water temperature is in the mid 50s. Anglers have found fair to good fishing for cutthroat trout while trolling minnow-type lures. They're fishing in 30 to 60 feet of water, and focusing on the area from the marina north into Idaho at Fish Haven Creek. They are also picking up a few lake trout with the same method. Anglers are using deep-diving lures to get down to the 30-foot depth. Using a downrigger will help you get deeper than 30 feet. You might also want to try jigging with tube jigs tipped with cisco or sucker meat. Use this method off of Second Point and at the mouth of North Eden Canyon.

(Jun 4) Anglers report catching large lake trout and cutthroat trout by both jigging and trolling. Anglers this week recommended Flatfish.

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

(Jun 22) The water temperature was in the high 50s last weekend and the reservoir has been filling rapidly. Though some anglers report a slower catch, especially those fishing from shore, others are pulling in many rainbow trout. Try trolling near the shoreline using Rapalas. If you can only fish from shore, try floating garlic PowerBait 3-4 feet off the bottom.

(Jun 9) The water is warming up quickly. Anglers report fair to good fishing for trout and bass. One angler caught a few nice-sized trout before 8 a.m., but anglers fishing later in the day varied in their success. Try using a black woolly bugger, garlic PowerBait or pop gear with a worm.

(Jun 4) Fishing is good to hot at East Canyon this week for both rainbow trout and smallmouth bass. Anglers reported catching their limit within an hour or two, primarily by trolling. Anglers report catching fish only 20-30 feet from shore.

Flaming Gorge Reservoir

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

FISH CONSUMPTION ADVISORY

(Jun 16) The water level is at 6,028 feet and increasing. The water temperature is about 65 degrees F in the canyon, or Utah region of the reservoir. All launches are open.

Kokanee salmon: Fishing is fair to good. The reservoir has risen six feet this spring and water temperatures have climbed to 65 degrees F. The kokanee have started to move down in the water column, preferring deeper, cooler water. The early morning bite is most consistent, but some anglers have done well during midday along the shade of the main channel. Most of the fish caught this week came from 40 to 50 feet and 1.6 to 2.2 mph, but watch your fish finder and adjust your lure depth to where you're marking fish. Smaller spoons (#1 Needlefish, Vipers), squids (pink, orange) and dodgers (silver/pink or orange) work best. Tip lures with Gulp maggots, mealworms or corn.

Rainbow trout: Fishing is fair. You might catch some cutthroat trout, too. Fishing is good in the canyon along the shore using bait or casting small jigs and spinners. Marabou jigs in earth tone colors are a good option in shallow or deep water. If you're fishing from a boat, try casting jigs near creek inlets and shallow points, or trolling pop gear at 10 to 20 feet deep along the shoreline. Watch for concentrations of rainbow trout on the fish finder, and vertically jig with small jigging spoons like Northland Buckshots tipped with bait. If fishing from shore, cast parallel to the shoreline, let the bait sink some and slowly retrieve with occasional jigging strokes. When you catch one, there are likely more. Pinch down the barbs for a quick release. Fish were recently stocked, so small rainbows are a common, yet easy catch.

Lake trout: Fishing is fair. Anglers are catching smaller lake trout (pups) while trolling for kokanee salmon or jigging in 50 to 80 feet of water near main channel points and ridges. Fish can be located suspended above the bottom using a fish finder. Try dropping a white or glow-n-the-dark tube jig or jigging spoon (Northland Buckshot) tipped with sucker or chub meat. Gulp minnows and blade baits (Sebile Vibrato) can also work really well.

Smallmouth bass: Fishing is good. Smallmouth bass are active in the shallows and jerk baits (Rapala Xrap) work great this time of year. Use a jerk-jerk-pause retrieve, varying the length of the pause to entice fish. Good colors include rainbow trout, pink and silver. Have a couple of sizes on hand, and if they're chasing without hitting, try going bigger or smaller in the same color. Top water is also fantastic early and late in the day. Try spitting top waters like Rebel PopRs, also in rainbow trout. Jigs mimicking crayfish, their primary forage, are always a great option.

Burbot: Fishing is fair. Boaters should target burbot on rocky points and shorelines in 20 to 40 feet of water. The best activity will be found at night 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 glow frequently and jig the presentation a couple inches from the bottom.

(Jun 4) The water is as 6,026 feet and holding steady. The water temperature is about 50 degrees F in the canyon, or Utah region of the reservoir. All launches are open.

Kokanee salmon: Anglers report catching kokanee! Fishing is fair to good. Now that water temperatures have warmed into the 50s, fishing is starting to pick up consistently. Successful anglers are catching most kokanee close to the surface, 15 feet or shallower. Troll planer boards to get the lure out away from the boat for boat-shy fish. If you don't have planer boards, try a longer set-back, 100 to 200 feet behind the boat. As the water warms, kokanee will move deeper and start showing up on the fish finder. Smaller spoons (#1 Needlefish, Vipers), squids (pink, orange) and dodgers (silver/pink or orange) have been working best. Try tipping lures with Gulp maggots, mealworms or corn.

Rainbow trout: Fishing is fair to good. You might catch some cutthroat trout, too. In the canyon, fishing is good along the shore using bait or casting small jigs and spinners. Marabou jigs in earth tone colors are a good option in shallow or deep water. If fishing from a boat, try casting jigs near creek inlets and shallow points. If fishing from shore, cast parallel to the shoreline, let the bait sink some and slowly retrieve with occasional jigging strokes. When you catch one, there are likely more. Pinch down the barbs for quick release.

Lake trout: Fishing is good. Anglers are catching smaller lake trout (pups) while trolling for kokanee salmon or while jigging in 40 to 70 feet of water near main channel points and ridges. Fish may be located suspended above the bottom using a sonar or fish finder. Try dropping a white or glow-in-the-dark tube jig or jigging spoon, tipped with sucker/chub meat. Gulp minnows also work well. Also try trolling crankbaits behind planer boards along the shoreline, early and late in the day.

Smallmouth bass: Fishing is good. Jerk baits work great groggy bass this time of year. To entice fish, se a jerk-jerk-pause retrieve, varying the length of the pause. Good colors include, rainbow trout, pink and silver. Jigs mimicking crayfish are also a great option. Expect the afternoon bite to be best, especially on sunlit, rocky shorelines.

Burbot: Fishing is slow. Boaters should target burbot on rocky points and shorelines in 10 to 40 feet of water. The best activity will be found at night 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 glow frequently, and jig the presentation a couple inches from the bottom.

(Jun 16) Due to heavy snowpack in the upper Green River drainage, flows are currently 8,600 cfs. Fishing is still good during high flows. Streamer fishing has been good, especially in slow water (eddies). Nymph fishing has also been productive using scuds, soft hackles, San Juan worms and juju midges. Set your nymph rig deep, 8 to 12 feet, and target seams of fast and slow water. Fishing with cicadas has also been good, especially in the A-section. Try a dry dropper, using a cicada as a strike indicator with a nymph trailing 2 to three feet below. Spin fishing is good. Marabou jigs or tube jigs in earth tones and whites are a good option in shallow or deep water. Brightly colored spoons, spinners and crankbaits may also entice fish. Pinch down the barbs for quick release.

(Jun 4) Fishing is still good during high flows. Streamer fishing has been good, especially in slow water (eddies). Expect to be nymphing, using dry-dropper rigs, scuds, soft hackles, BWO emergers, San Juan worms and juju midges. Set your nymph rig deep, 8 to 12 feet and target seams of fast and slow water. Midge and mayfly hatches are tapering off, but have been best just above Little Hole in the afternoons. Look for rising fish in eddies and hugging the bank. A few cicadas have been reported on A-section as well as on Flaming Gorge Reservoir. Spin fishing is usually good. Marabou jigs or tube jigs in earth tones and whites are a good option in shallow or deep water. Brightly colored spoons, spinners and crankbaits may also entice fish.

Starvation Reservoir

Brown Trout, Crayfish, Smouthmouth Bass, Walleye

FISH CONSUMPTION ADVISORY

(Jun 16) Cheryl Bunnell says: Starvation Reservoir skunked almost everyone today. 4 fish caught all morning at the bridge and dam. One was mine. The wind was terrible.

(Jun 16) Fishing is good for shore anglers. Boat anglers have caught plenty of recently stocked 12-inch kokanee salmon. Try using a dodger with a squid spinner. Fishing has been best in the early morning until about mid afternoon. Try using PowerBait or spinners from shore. Most fish are caught in water 8 to 18 feet deep. Warmer water temperatures have improved the smallmouth bass fishing, especially along the rocky shorelines near the bridge. Biologists moved more than 250 crappie from Pineview to Starvation to establish a new population of forage fish. If you catch crappie, we're asking that you voluntarily release them so they can establish this population. Water temperatures are averaging in the mid to high 50-degree range, and levels are staying steady at 86 percent.

(Jun 5) Tyson Fields of Grantsville fished in a group of 4 and caught 33 rainbows using Power Bait fishing from a boat. "Trolling was pretty slow because of the merky water from runoff but bait fishing is excellent catching over 30 fish all between 2 to 5 lbs."

(Jun 4) Shore fishing was good over the weekend. Fishing has been best in the early morning until about mid afternoon. Try using PowerBait or spinners from shore. Most fish that have been caught were in water from 8 to 18 feet deep. Warmer water temperatures have increased the smallmouth bass action, especially along the rocky shorelines near the bridge. More than 250 crappie were moved by DWR biologists from Pineview and stocked into Starvation to establish a new population of forage fish. If you catch crappie, we're asking that you voluntarily release them so they can establish this population. Water temperatures are averaging in the mid to high 50-degree range, and levels are staying steady at 86 percent.

Steinaker Reservoir

Bluegill, Largemouth Bass, Rainbow Trout

FISH CONSUMPTION ADVISORY

(Jun 16) Bluegill fishing is hot from a boat. Try fishing along the northern shoreline for decent-sized bluegill, and along the eastern rocky shore for largemouth bass. Try using small jigs tipped with a nightcrawler in about 8 to 15 feet of water. If fishing from the shore, you may use a bubble or bobber to suspend your line off of the bottom. As of April 22, the Division has issued an emergency change, liberalizing limits at Steinaker. There is no daily bag limit for any species: largemouth or smallmouth bass, rainbow or brown trout, and bluegill. This change will remain in effect until December 31, 2017, though this will most likely be extended into 2018. The Bureau of Reclamation will be drawing down Steinaker Reservoir this year and next year in preparation for dam repair work. The drawdown will take the reservoir past dead pool and a complete fish kill is expected. It will be restocked with bluegill, rainbow trout and brown trout upon refilling, and largemouth bass the year after refilling begins.

(Jun 4) Bluegill fishing is picking up. Try fishing along the northern shoreline for decent-sized bluegill, and along the eastern rocky shore for largemouth bass.
