A foam hopper-bead head nymph dropper rig can be especially fun and effective here. Don't hesitate to hit some of the higher tributaries, like Merchant Creek.

Regulations

Benches Pond Reservoir

Rainbow Trout

(Sep 17) Fishing is good on many of the lakes along Skyline Drive in the Manti-La Sal National Forest including Benches Pond. Fishing is best in the morning and evening. During the past three weeks, Benches Pond and several other waters in the area were stocked with rainbow trout.

Boulder Mountain Lakes

Brook Trout, Rainbow Trout

(Sep 15) You can find fair to good fishing across the mountain. Try getting away from the most popular lakes for better success. Also, don't hesitate to move to a new lake if you find slow fishing. Spin fishers should try marabou jigs, tube jigs, Gulp minnows, spinners, Jake's and Kastmasters. Bait fishers should focus on natural baits like nightcrawlers or cut bait. (This is especially effective for large tiger trout.) Fly anglers should bring an assortment of streamers, terrestrials, beadhead nymphs and favorite dry patterns. Most Boulder lakes are full of freshwater shrimp, so scuds are a must in your fly box. Midsummer is an ideal time to target grayling and cutthroat trout. These fish can often be caught on dry flies or nymphs. In recent weeks, ant patterns have produced well in lakes on the top of the mountain.

Regulations

Boulger Reservoir

Rainbow Trout

(Sep 17) Fishing is good on many of the lakes along Skyline Drive in the Manti-La Sal National Forest including Benches Pond. Fishing is best in the morning and evening. During the past three weeks, Benches Pond and several other waters in the area were stocked with rainbow trout.

Regulations

East Fork of Sevier River

Brook Trout, Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout

FISH CONSUMPTION ADVISORY

(Sep 15) Fishing is fair to good, depending on the area you fish. Don't hesitate to move around. Summer is a great time to throw a hopper-dropper combo or other terrestrials. The upper East Fork Sevier River and many of its tributaries hold good populations of brown, rainbow and brook trout. Look for mostly small fish, although you can catch an occasional big brown trout just above Tropic Reservoir. These streams are perfect for honing your fly-fishing skills. Hopper-dropper combos and other terrestrials can be particularly effective. Spin anglers can do well with small, flashy spinners.

Regulations

Electric Lake

Cutthroat Trout

(Sep 17) Fishing is good. Cutthroat trout are taking most baits, but especially shiners. Occasionally, the larger tiger trout are responding to trolling spoons along the rocky shorelines. Tiger trout were stocked here last on June 15.

Fish Creek (lower)

Rainbow Trout

(Sep 17) 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

(Sep 15) Fishing is fair to good. Trolling with pop gear and worms is effective for catching rainbow trout. Anglers are catching splake on the east shore using tube jigs tipped with cut bait. A few lake trout have also been picked up on the west side south of Bowery Haven with large tube jigs tipped with cut bait. Perch action can be fast while jigging just outside the weedline. ll prizes left over from the perch tournament have been awarded. Before you visit the lake, call the Fish Lake Lodge at 435-638-1000 to check on current conditions.

Regulations

Green River

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

STOP NEW ZEALAND MUDSNAIL

(Sep 25) Fishing has been fair, but pressure is down now that summer is over. Expect very few anglers early on weekdays. Flows can change daily, so check out current releases from Flaming Gorge Dam. Nymph fishing has been productive using scuds, soft hackles, midges and PMDs. Rigs should be set about five to ten feet and fished along seams. Dry fly fishing is better in the lower reaches of the river. Terrestrials are working great, but there are still a few caddis hatches late in the day. Mix it up using a dry dropper (with a large terrestrial high) and a nymph trailing two to five feet below. Spin fishing is almost always good. Marabou or hair jigs (Zig Jigs) in earth-tone colors are a good option in shallow or deep water. Also try crankbaits (like Rapala Xraps and Husky Jerks) in deeper water. Pinch down the barbs for quick release. Brightly colored spoons and spinners will also entice fish.

Regulations

Huntington Creek

Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout

STOP WHIRLING DISEASE

(Sep 17) Fishing is good in the stretch just below Electric Lake especially at dusk. Brown trout are responding well to streamers. The creek was stocked with cutthroat trout on July 19.

Regulations

Minersville Reservoir

Rainbow Trout, Smallmouth Bass

STOP WHIRLING DISEASE

(Sep 15) The reservoir level is fairly low, but fishing is fair to good. Trout are surface-feeding on midges in the morning before the wind comes up. Later, they can be caught trolling or fishing streamers and lures under the surface. The trout are healthy and strong this year, which should help them get through the low water level. Smallmouth bass and wipers are active, especially in the early morning.

FISH CONSUMPTION ADVISORY

Law enforcement officers are still encountering many anglers who think they are okay to be in the river on posted private property. Those anglers are actually trespassing. You must have written permission to fish waters that flow through posted private property. If you plan to fish in a Walk-in Access area, be sure to obtain a free Walk-in Access authorization number. Please be respectful of all property and remember to pack out your trash.
