(Jun 19) As of June 17, anglers reported good fishing throughout the river. Anglers report success using caddis flies during the day, and PMDs and spinner flies in the evening. Many thanks to Round Rocks Fly Shop in Logan for that report.

(Jun 12) As of June 10, water clarity was improving. Anglers report success using PMD patterns. There are some caddis hatches. Use size 16 to 14 for the top, and use San Juan worms below. Anglers are having the most success with larger patterns. Many thanks to Jodie Anderson for that report.

(Jun 5) On June 2, the water was high and off color. Angling pressure has been very light past week. The stonefly hatch is over, but fish are still taking stonefly nymphs. Many thanks to Round Rocks Fly Shop in Logan for that report.

Boulder Mountain Lakes

Brook Trout, Rainbow Trout

(Jun 26) 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.

(Jun 11) All areas are accessible except the Boulder Top, which is scheduled to open next week. Fishing is good to excellent in many lakes across the mountain. Anglers have caught some very large tigers this spring. When targeting these large fish, remember that they are predators and adjust your techniques accordingly.

(Jun 11) Access is good to the Kent's lakes. The gate past there is still locked. Indian Creek Reservoir will not be stocked this year due to low water level and unsafe road conditions.

(Jun 4) Access is now possible to the North Slope lakes with four-wheel drive. Be very careful on snow packed and muddy roads. Remember that ATVs can do a lot of damage to wet roads, so slow down and take it easy. East end lakes are also accessible. The Boulder Top is not yet accessible. Early spring fishing can provide some of the best success of the year, especially for trophy fish.

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

STOP WHIRLING DISEASE

(Jun 26) Trolling and bait fishing are good to excellent for rainbow trout. You may also want to try jigging suspended over 75 feet. Anglers are catching a few splake with these methods too. For perch, try jigging near the bottom outside the weeds.

(Jun 4) Fishing has been a little slow during recent storms, but picks up during nice weather. Anglers have been doing well for rainbows and splake both trolling and bait fishing. Bigger fish have been caught on the east side of the lake. Trolling outside the weedline from Fish Lake Lodge to the Lakeside Marina with large Rapalas and pop gear has produced several lake trout around twenty pounds. Also try jigging for perch on the outside edge of the weedline or for splake in 30-60 feet.

Green River

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

STOP NEW ZEALAND MUDSNAIL

(Jun 25) Fishing is good to excellent. Cicadas have been more widespread 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 sighted 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. Currently the river is flowing at an average of 1,700 cubic feet per second, and peaking at 2,160 cubic feet per second between 28 p.m.

(Jun 19) Fishing has been good to excellent. Cicadas and other terrestrials are supplying the surface action, while large scuds and emerging midges supply a deeper catch. Try as a combo with a scud, shrimp or emerger trailer. Anglers report good fishing for browns and rainbows, especially in the main channel and deeper eddies. Anglers who use lures are also successful. Try crankbaits, spinners, spoons and jigs in fish, crayfish, black, white, silver and gold colors. During our recent electrofishng survey, biologists measured and released big healthy trout. They also removed numerous flies (hooks). One guide commented it was free fly night and proof that a 6X tippet does not effectively hold a Green River rainbow.

(Jun 12) Fishing is good. Cicadas, and other terrestrials, are supplying the surface action while large scuds and emerging midges supply a deeper catch. Try a combination with a scud, shrimp or emerger trailer. Anglers report good fishing for brown and rainbow trout, especially in the main channel and deeper eddies. Anglers using lures have also reported good fishing. Try crankbaits, spinners, spoons and jigs in fish, crayfish, black, white, silver and gold colors. During the recent electrofishing, biologists measured and released big, healthy trout. They also removed several flies (hooks). Water flows vary throughout the day, starting around 1,200 cfs, increasing for 1800 cfs for most of the day and peaking at 2,500 cfs in the afternoon before falling back to 1,200 cfs overnight.

(Jun 4) The water levels are returning to normal. Cicadas and other terrestrials are supplying good surface action. Try them in combination with a scud or shrimp trailer. Anglers report good fishing for browns and rainbows. There could be other hatches going, so match the hatch as it occurs. Anglers using lures are also catching fish. Try crankbaits, spinners, spoons and jigs in fish, crayfish, black, white, silver and gold colors. During the recent electrofishing, biologists measured and released big, healthy trout. They also removed several flies (hooks).

(Jun 25) Smallmouth bass are biting now that the water is warmer. Try throwing jerkbaits or rattletraps at midday. Also, continue to use traditional baits (worms and PowerBait) on the shoreline. There are currently 20 yellow-tagged fish in the reservoir. If you catch one of these fish, measure it to the millimeter, and email the information to michaelslater@utah.gov. Also, be aware of rattlesnakes that may be basking in the sun near the shoreline. There have been sightings near Rock Cliff and at the Perimeter Trail. The reservoir is about 87 percent full, and water temperatures are in the upper 60s and lower 70s.

(Jun 8) Smallmouth bass are biting with the warmer temperatures. Try using jerkbaits near the shoreline. The Rock Cliff ramp leads down to dirt because of low water levels. Be aware of floating debris coming in from the river runoff. Float tubers have had success while fishing Rapalas. Try throwing jerkbaits for smallmouth bass. Fly-fishing anglers are having success with woolly buggers in black. Also, continue to use traditional baits (like worms or PowerBait) on the shoreline. There are currently 20 yellow-tagged fish in the reservoir. If you catch one of these fish, measure it to the millimeter, and email the information to michaelslater@utah.gov.

Trout are very active and feeding early to midday, especially near the banks in shallow water. Sow bugs have been working well this week. Spinners are a great choice for those who aren't fly fishing. Water temperatures at midday are hovering above 55F. Water is being released from Deer Creek, so water levels are up and ranging from 475 cubic feet per second (cfs) below Deer Creek to 48 cfs near Harbor Drive.

Middle: Dry flies have been more successful on the Middle Provo than the Lower Provo. Try using a PMD emerger. There has been a lot of PMD activity. You may also want to try some sow bugs. Water levels are near 163 cfs, with flows higher near the Jordanelle release (340 cfs) and average at Charleston (around 199 cfs).

(Jun 8) Lower: Flows are higher. Pale morning dun mayflies (PMDs) are picking up at midday. Use sizes 1822. Trout are very active and feeding early to midday. Try scuds and San Juan worms. Spinners work great for those who aren't fly fishing. Both sowbugs and San Juan worms will be more readily accepted with the higher water flows. Water temperatures at midday are hovering around 50 degrees. Be aware that water is being released from Deer Creek Reservoir, so water levels are up and flows range from 333 cfs below Deer Creek to 49 cfs near Harbor Drive.

Middle: You'll find good fishing, with sizes 1822 working best. Nymphs, size 22 and smaller, will be still be good at midday.
