Anglers are having some success using small, dark midges and egg patterns in sizes 18, 20 and 22. Brown trout are still spawning and can be seen on their redds. Be careful not to step on their redds (spawning areas) while fishing. Water clarity is very good right now, and water flows are normal. Thanks to Roundrocks Fly shop in Logan for the report.

Size 18 blue-and-red midge patterns are working when trailed behind a Prince, hare's ear or rubber-leg pattern. Brown trout are still spawning and can be seen on their redds (spawning areas). Be careful and avoid stepping on the redds while fishing. Water clarity is very good right now, and water flows are normal.

(Nov 7) Round Rocks Fly Shop reports very good fishing. The water clarity is very good and water flows are normal. Egg patterns are working best right now because of the brown trout spawn.

STOP WHIRLING DISEASE

(Nov 7) Boat anglers report good fishing for rainbow trout by trolling pop gear. Shore anglers are doing well using flies or bait near Twin Creeks. Yellow perch also offer fast action by jigging just outside the weedline. To target splake, jig outside the weedline in 20 to 60 feet. Lake trout move to shallow water during October to spawn and, although they can be very visible, they are fairly hard to catch.

Lures are also working well. Try crankbaits, spinners, spoons and jigs in fish, crayfish, black, white, silver and gold colors.
