Regulations

Benches Pond Reservoir

Rainbow Trout

(Jul 3) Early morning anglers report good fishing with a combination of worms and marshmallows or worms and PowerBait. Fishing tapers off as the temperature rises. The catch consists of planted 8- to 10-inch rainbow trout.

(Jul 3) As of June 30, anglers reported good fishing throughout the river. Anglers are catching mostly rainbows and browns using PMDs, caddis flies, pheasant tale nymphs, hare's ear nymphs and ants and beetles. This is also a great time to use hoppers.

Boulder Mountain Lakes

Brook Trout, Rainbow Trout

(Jul 10) All areas of the mountain are accessible, including the Boulder Top. Fishing is good to excellent in numerous lakes across the mountain. Anglers have caught some very large tigers this year. When you're targeting these large fish, remember that they are predators and adjust your techniques accordingly.

Regulations

Boulger Reservoir

Rainbow Trout

(Jul 3) For best results, fish in the early morning or late evening. Dry flies are often effective in the evening. Baits can be used at other times. All of the trout are planters and will usually be in the 8- to 10-inch size range.

Cleveland Reservoir

Fish Lake

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

STOP WHIRLING DISEASE

(Jul 10) It's been raining a lot lately, but fishing has been good to excellent during the calm periods in between storms. Early morning and late evening have produced the best fishing. Trolling, jigging and bait fishing are producing well for rainbow trout, with a few splake in the mix. Jigging near the bottom outside the weeds is providing fast fishing for perch. Tip your jigs with nightcrawler or perch meat for best success. Remember, there is no limit on perch in Fish Lake and you are encouraged to harvest as many as you can. Lake trout fishing is slow.

Regulations

Green River

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

STOP NEW ZEALAND MUDSNAIL

(Jul 23) There are still a few cicadas around, but caddis flies are now more prevalent in the two to three miles immediately below the dam. Dry dropper rigs are working well with a cicada on top and with a scud, zebra midge or nymph below. Caddis hatches are becoming more abundant in the A-section, and some yellow sallies have been spotted as well. Terrestrials (like ants, crickets and hoppers) are a variation from the norm, which is always a good option during peak season. Spin anglers should try small marabou jigs, spoons or crankbaits in deeper water and runs. The river is currently flowing at an average of 1,700 cubic feet per second and peaking at 2,160 cubic feet per second between 28 p.m.

(Jul 16) Cicadas have been more prevalent in the two to three miles immediately below the dam. Dry dropper rigs are working well, with a cicada on top and a scud, zebra midge or nymph below. Caddis hatches are becoming more abundant in the lower portion of A-section and some yellow sallies have been spotted as well. Terrestrials like ants, crickets and hoppers are a variation from the norm, which is always a good option during peak season. Spin anglers should try small marabou jigs, spoons or crankbaits in deeper water and runs.

Huntington Creek

Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout

STOP WHIRLING DISEASE

(Jul 3) The stretch from Electric Lake dam downstream to South Hughes Canyon is the best place to fish. This stretch lies within the fly-only zone. Below South Hughes Canyon, the Seeley Fire and subsequent flash floods have made it so that there are no fish in the creek. You cannot camp overnight from South Hughes Canyon to the forks of the Huntington because of a continuing flash flood threat. You can camp below the forks, but there are few, if any, fish there.

(Jul 3) As of July 1, flows in the South Fork were good and the water was crystal clear with excellent visibility. You can easily see fish swimming around. Angling pressure is fair. Canyon temperatures are much more comfortable than the valley. This is a great place to get out of the heat and catch fish.

Uinta Lakes

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

(Jul 23) Chris Haramoto reported great fishing at State Line Dam. He and his friends reported catching fish so quickly that they barely had time to get the fish off of the hooks. Chris used a yellow plastic jig floated with a bubble and caught a lot of trout.

(Jul 16) Fishing is good at many of the Uinta Mountain lakes. Fishing has slowed at Bridger, Stateline and Marsh lakes. Anglers are still catching fish mostly on lures and flies, just not worms and PowerBait like they were a couple weeks ago. At Lyman, Whitney and Lily lakes anglers report good fishing on worms and PowerBait, and flies and lures. At Beaver Lake, anglers are also have a lot of success catching 14- to 16-inch rainbow trout using flies and lures.

(Jul 3) Many of the lakes that lie off the beaten path along Hwy 150 are producing quality fishing opportunities. Fish are readily biting on spinners (Jake's and Kastmasters), flies and even nightcrawlers. A local angler recently had good success fishing many of the high Uinta streams. Most of them are running a little high, but the water is quite clear. He had some success fishing in the East Fork of the Bear River. He caught a cutthroat on a #16 purple haze and a brook trout on a #16 Higa SOS dropper. This is a great time to get out of the valley heat, take the family for a hike and enjoy some of the secluded lakes in the area.

FISH CONSUMPTION ADVISORY

(Jul 16) Fishing is good between Echo and Rockport state parks. One angler caught a nice-sized rainbow trout on a nymph. In the Morgan area, the river has a high water flow and the water is off color. Try using streamers and larger flies in this area. There is a overgrowth in the lower part of the river, which is making it very difficult to fish.
