(Sep 15) Anglers report fair to good fishing with a variety of methods. If you're using bait and the fish completely swallows the hook, please cut the line. Crowds are thinning out a bit now that school has started. The tagged rainbow trout contest runs until October 31, and there are still many prizes to be claimed. Registration is not necessary, so go catch a tagged rainbow trout! There are special regulations in effect at Strawberry: the limit is a combined total of four trout or kokanee salmon. No more than two may be cutthroat trout under 15 inches, and no more than one may be a cutthroat trout over 22 inches. All cutthroat trout from 15 to 22 inches must be immediately released. Trout and salmon may not be filleted, and the heads or tails may not be removed in the field or in transit.

(Aug 30) Mike Young fished with a partner and caught 6 rainbows using gold Jake's and PowerBait. "Fishing wasn't too fast - about one per 30 minutes between the two of us. We had quite a few nibbles but the fish were not very active in biting our bait. The fishing drastically slowed down around 10 and that's when we decided to head out. We started fishing right around 6:30. - All in all the weather was perfect, the temperature was perfect and the company was great. We will definitely be going back in a few weeks once the weather cools down quite a bit and the fish become more active in the shallower parts of water."

Uinta Lakes

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

(Sep 18) The fall colors are spectacular right now, and the fish are actively feeding.

Mirror Lake Highway Lakes: These lakes are stocked heavily and offer good fishing. If you don't find good fishing at one, move on to another. Watch closely as the fish rise — if their jump leaves an air bubble, it usually means they are taking flies off the surface. Use a fly that floats readily on the surface like a caddis, foam ant or hopper. If their rise is more of a swirl that doesn't leave a bubble, they are likely taking flies below the surface. Use a prince nymph, hare's ear or a combination of the two called a Prince Hairy. You don't need a fly rod to fish this way—you can use your spinning outfit.

Uintas North Slope Lakes: Anglers interviewed Sept. 15 were doing good fishing with bloodworm patterns at Bridger Lake. Be sure to take your fishing rod with you as you explore the north slope road on your ATV.

(Sep 11) The Uintas received snow this week! Be prepared for winter weather. These lakes are stocked heavily and the fishing is good. If you don't find good fishing at one lake, move on to another.

Uintas North Slope Lakes: Be sure to take your fishing rod when you explore the north slope road on your ATV. The North Slope drainages include Bear River, Henry's Fork and Burnt Fork.
