Boulder Mountain Lakes

Brook Trout, Rainbow Trout

(Jun 22) All areas of the mountain are now accessible, including the Boulder Top. You'll find fair to good fishing across the mountain. Spin anglers should try marabou jigs, tube jigs, Gulp minnows, spinners, Jake's lures and Kastmasters. Focus on natural baits like nightcrawlers or cut bait. (This is especially effective for large tigers and splake.) If you're a fly angler, 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

Fish Lake

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

STOP WHIRLING DISEASE

(Jun 22) Typical summer fishing patterns have set in. Rainbow trout can be caught while trolling or bait fishing from boats. Perch fishing is providing fast action. Anchor just outside the weedline and fish with small jigs tipped with nightcrawler. Remember that there is no limit on perch at Fish Lake, and you are encouraged to harvest all the perch that you catch. A few experienced kokanee anglers have come to Fish Lake to try out the new population. They have had fair to good success for fat salmon measuring 14 to 15 inches long. For kokanee, try trolling dodgers and squids tipped with Gulp maggots at depths of 30 to 40 feet. Before you head to the lake, call the Fish Lake Lodge at 435-638-1000 or Bowery Haven Resort at 435-638-1040 to check on current conditions and get up-to-date fishing reports.

Green River

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

STOP NEW ZEALAND MUDSNAIL

(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. Pinch down the barbs for quick release.

Regulations

Huntington Reservoir

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

(Jun 9) The reservoir is now open. Lots of tiger trout were found during recent gill net surveys. Some of these trout appear to be eating worms off the bottom, so small night crawlers might work well.

Regulations

Jordanelle Reservoir

Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout, Smallmouth Bass, Yellow Perch

STOP WHIRLING DISEASE

FISH CONSUMPTION ADVISORY

(Jun 22) Anglers have been catching 14- to 18-inch rainbows and 18- to 20-inch browns. Try fishing for rainbows on the south side of the lake, using PowerBait, spoons and spinners. For browns, try using crankbaits and minnow-imitating lures. Perch-colored Rapalas appear to be the go-to lure for browns right now.

(Jun 4) Anglers have been catching rainbows and smallmouth bass. For trout, try using popgear with a Mack's Wedding Ring Spinner tipped with a nightcrawler, a silver and/or gold Jake's Spin-A-Lure, a salmon egg and/or rainbow PowerBait, or a nightcrawler. For smallmouth, try using darker colored Kalin's curly tail grubs, Gary Yamamoto Senkos, Berkley PowerBait Finesse Worms or YUM Christie Craws on a 1/8 to 1/4-ounce jighead.

Regulations

Minersville Reservoir

Rainbow Trout, Smallmouth Bass

STOP WHIRLING DISEASE

(Jun 22) Anglers report fair to good fishing. Rainbow trout are moving deep during the day and can be caught while trolling lures or dragging streamers on sinking line. You can find some dry fly action in the morning and evening. Trout are in great condition and are providing an excellent fight. Smallmouth bass are active and can be caught on crayfish-imitating tackle. Wipers are most active at sunup or sundown, and you can catch them while trolling or casting topwater lures. Our annual monitoring survey found fair numbers of fat, healthy rainbow trout. Fish in the 17- to 22-inch range are readily available. Wipers are also doing fantastic, with four- to six-pound fish abundant. We also saw a few larger wipers that weighed up to eight pounds.

Regulations

Ogden River

Brook Trout, Brown Trout, Cutthroat Trout, Rainbow Trout

STOP WHIRLING DISEASE

(Jun 22) The river is still running high, fast and murky brown. Use caution. One angler reports catching decent-sized brown trout.

(Jun 9) One angler reported catching several large brown trout. Please use caution the river is flowing high and fast.

(Jun 4) One angler reports success using a gold spinner.

Rainbow Trout

No recent reports.

Regulations

Provo River

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

(Jun 22) Flows are still fluctuating on the Lower Provo, so please continue to use extreme caution. Fish are feeding heavily near the river banks, so river wading is not necessary to catch fish. Reports indicate plenty of stonefly and caddis activity. Try using caddis larvae and pupa patterns, stonefly nymphs, sow bugs, freshwater shrimp and mayfly nymphs.

(Jun 4) Lower: The Provo River is running high, so please continue to use extreme caution. Fish are feeding heavily and are aggressive. Reports indicate plenty of stonefly and caddis activity. Try using caddis larvae and pupa patterns, stonefly nymphs, sow bugs, shrimp and mayfly nymphs.

Middle: The Provo River is running high, so please continue to use extreme caution. Fortunately, the high flows have isolated fish near the edges of the shore. Fish are active and hungry, so try using caddis larvae and pupa, sow bugs and mayfly nymphs.

Regulations

Scofield Reservoir

Crayfish, Cutthroat Trout, Rainbow Trout

(Jun 9) The water level at the reservoir is high. Some anglers have even seen fish spilling over the top of the dam. The chubs have started spawning, and anglers are having success catching them on the western shore using worms and PowerBait. Once caught, the chubs can be killed and used for bait. Scofield was stocked with more than 12,000 catchable cutthroat trout on April 20. Try using chub meat or spinners to catch the recently stocked fish and larger cutthroat trout that are also in the reservoir.

Regulations

Strawberry Reservoir

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

(Jun 22) Shore fishing is fair, but anglers report great success fishing from boats. Anglers are catching 14- to 16-inch rainbows, 18- to 20-inch cutthroats and kokanee salmon. Kokanee fishing has been great. For kokanee, try using Mack's Lure Cha Cha Kokanee, 1- to 1.5-inch light pink Radical Glow tube jigs, Shasta Tackle Pee Wee Wiggle Hoochies, Yakima Flash Glo Squid Spinners or UV pink Rocky Mountain Tackle Super Squids. For trout, try using Gitzit Bait Savers, white or glow tube jigs (tipped with a nightcrawler or mealworm) or gold-black Mepps Aglia Marabous.

(Jun 4) Fishing has been slow, but is slowly improving. Anglers have reported catching kokanee. For kokanee, try using chartreuse lime or glow mink Shasta Tackle Koke-A-Nuts or Shasta Tackle Pee Wee Wiggle Hoochies. For trout, traditional methods work well, or you can try using tube jigs, chartreuse paddle bugs, curly tail grubs, popgear, Yakima FlatFish, Jake's Wobblers or Rapalas. Remember to tip with a mealworm, nightcrawler or wax worm. The Strawberry Bay Marina tagged fish contest will not be taking place this year.

Regulations

Thousand Lakes Mountain

Trout

(Jun 22) Access is good to all areas. There haven't been any recent reports, but fishing should be fair to good.

Tibble Fork Reservoir

Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout

(Jun 22) Angling pressure has increased, and anglers have been catching 8- to 12-inch rainbows. Anglers report success using woolly buggers, nightcrawlers and dry flies under a bobber.

(Jun 4) The reservoir was stocked on May 25 and is now open, but the official grand opening will be June 6. Anglers can expect to catch rainbows, browns and brook trout. The stretch of river below Tibble Fork will be stocked with rainbows once the high spring flows decrease.

Regulations

Uinta Lakes

Albino Trout, Brook Trout, Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout, Tiger Trout (hybrid)

(Jun 9) Please use extreme caution if you're attempting to access waters in the Uinta Mountains. Warm temperatures have increased runoff significantly, and the rivers are reportedly twice their volume compared to last week. Expect murky and fast-running rivers.

(Jun 4) Snow still remains in the higher elevations. Based on current conditions, we anticipate that SR-150 (Mirror Lake Highway) will not be snow-free until a few more weeks have passed. The North Slope streams are still running high and fast, but the water is clearer than in previous weeks. Please use caution if attempting to access waters in the Uinta Mountains.

Regulations

Weber River

Brook Trout, Brown Trout, Cutthroat Trout, Rainbow Trout, Whitefish

STOP WHIRLING DISEASE

FISH CONSUMPTION ADVISORY

(Jun 22) Use caution as the Weber is flowing extremely high and fast. If attempting to fish, anglers have recently found success targeting brown trout below Lost Creek using caddis or soft hackle patterns.

(Jun 9) Anglers continue to catch large numbers of brown trout on the Weber this week. One angler reported success with a San Juan worm. At Croydon, the river is reportedly flowing over the bridge.

(Jun 4) Anglers are catching lots of nice brown trout this week.

Regulations

Willow Lake

Rainbow Trout, Tiger Trout (hybrid)

(Jun 9) The lake is now open and accessible, but roads may be muddy or otherwise hazardous. Use caution when traveling up Ferron Canyon.
