Beaver River

Brook Trout, Brown Trout, Cutthroat Trout, Rainbow Trout

STOP WHIRLING DISEASE

(Nov 30) The flow is low and clear, so tread lightly to avoid spooking fish. There are good numbers of rainbow trout that are biting well on woolly buggers. Brown trout get aggressive in the fall as they prepare to spawn. Streamers, egg patterns, spinners and flashy lures can produce well.

Benches Pond Reservoir

Rainbow Trout

(Dec 9) Benches Pond and many other waters on the Manti skyline are covered in unstable ice and possibly inaccessible to highway vehicles.

(Nov 19) The pond was stocked with 1,500 rainbow trout in late September. That's in addition to several thousand rainbow trout that were stocked earlier in the summer. Try using worms and PowerBait to catch them.

Regulations

Blacksmith Fork River

Brook Trout, Cutthroat Trout, Rainbow Trout, Whitefish

STOP WHIRLING DISEASE

(Dec 9) Fishing was good last week, but we have not received any angler reports this week. One angler fished on the Blacksmith Fork with no luck on the fly rod using a zebra midge or egg pattern. The angler switched to spinners and caught 20 fish: 19 brown trout and one cutthroat trout. The fish were still on their redds, but not very aggressive.

(Dec 1) One angler reported poor fishing with a fly rod using a zebra midge or egg pattern. The angler switched to spinners, and caught 20 fish: 19 brown trout and one cutthroat trout. Fish are still on their redds, but not very aggressive.

(Nov 24) If you're looking for a quiet place to fish, the Blacksmith Fork is excellent place to go. Multiple DWR employees have driven the canyon these past few weeks and failed to find a single angler on the river. A few thin ice shelves are beginning to form along the edges of the river.

Boulder Mountain Lakes

Brook Trout, Rainbow Trout

(Nov 30) Due to unseasonably warm weather, access is still good to most of the mountain, and very few lakes have any ice. Conditions can change at any time. Some Boulder Mountain lakes are closed to fishing until April 2018. Check the Utah Fishing Guidebook before you go fishing to make sure the lake you are fishing is open. Lakes are listed individually in the 'Rules for Specific Waters' section. Access is still good but that can change at any time with fall snowstorms. Fall provides some of the best fishing of the year as the water cools down and fish get more aggressive. Fair to good fishing can be found across the mountain. Spin fishers should try marabou jigs, tube jigs, Gulp minnows, spinners, Jake's and Kastmasters. Focus on natural baits like nightcrawlers or cut bait (this is especially effective for large tigers and splake). Fly anglers should bring an assortment of streamers, terrestrials, beadhead nymphs, and your favorite dry patterns. Most Boulder lakes are full of freshwater shrimp, so scuds are a must in your fly box.

Rainbow Trout

(Dec 9) Anglers have had good success catching trout and chubs using green soft hackle flies and panther martin spinners.

(Nov 19) Anglers are catching brook trout using Panther Martin spinners. Utah chub are very thick below the dam at Scofield Reservoir; catching them has been easy using a green soft hackle fly. The creek was also stocked with more than 26,000 brown trout in June; the same lures should work well to catch them.

Fish Lake

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

STOP WHIRLING DISEASE

(Nov 30) Fall fishing has been good to excellent and many anglers have been taking advantage of the unseasonably warm temperatures. Lake trout up to 20 pounds are being picked up trolling large plugs that imitate rainbow trout. Rainbow and splake trout are being caught by boat anglers, both trolling and bait fishing. Perch fishing is still providing fast action. Anchor just outside the weedline in 10 to 15 feet and fish with small jigs tipped with night crawler. Remember that there is no limit on perch at Fish Lake and you are encouraged to harvest all the perch that you catch. You can also try jigging in 40 to 80 feet for splake, tiger and larger rainbow trout. Call Fish Lake Resorts at 435-638-1000 before you go to check on current conditions and get up-to-date fishing reports.

(Nov 19) Harvest of Kokanee salmon is closed through Nov 30. Fall is a great time to hit Fish Lake as trout get more active and there are less crowds. Fish Lake Resorts reports that lake trout fishing has improved with the end of the spawn. Some nice fish have been caught recently trolling Rapalas or pop gear with minnows. The kokanee spawn is tailing off and brown trout are starting to congregate around Twin Creeks. Rainbow and splake trout are being caught by boat anglers, both trolling and bait fishing. Perch fishing is still providing fast action. Anchor just outside the weedline in 10 to 15 feet and fish with small jigs tipped with nightcrawler. Bring your own nightcrawlers, as the local supplies are gone for the year. Remember that there is no limit on perch at Fish Lake and you are encouraged to harvest all the perch that you catch. You can also try jigging in 40 to 80 feet for splake, tiger and larger rainbow trout. Call Fish Lake Resorts at 435-638-1000 before you go to check on current conditions and get up-to-date fishing reports.

STOP NEW ZEALAND MUDSNAIL

(Dec 9) Flows are currently 2,800 cfs and water temperatures are at 48 degrees F. Flows can change daily, so please check out the USBR website for current releases from Flaming Gorge Dam. Streamers in black and olive are the best bet for snagging big brown trout around the Little Hole boat ramp area, so trying up or downriver from that spot should produce consistent action. Dry fly fishing has been fair. Terrestrials like hoppers, crickets and ants are still an option this time of year but midges, small mayflies, and even caddis have been reported. Nymphing is good using midge, mayfly, caddis and scud patterns. Try a dry dropper with an ant or hopper on top and a nymph or egg trailing a three to five feet below. Spin fishing is good. Marabou jigs or tube jigs in earthtones are a good option in shallow or deep water. Rainbow or brown trout patterned crankbaits will also entice fish. Medium-sized silver spoons and spinners will also work. Pinch down the barbs for quick release.

(Dec 9) The fishing at Scofield has slowed a bit, but anglers are still catching plenty of cutthroat trout using bead head soft hackle flies in black, green and pearl combinations. Bead head crystal buggers in tan, peacock and pearl combinations have also worked well. Chub patterns or other gray soft plastics may also be effective. Much of the shoreline has iced over, but most of the dam cove had open water as of Dec. 6.

(Nov 19) Fishing is hot for cutthroat trout. Successful anglers are catching several dozen cutthroats in two or three hours trolling with spoons and Rapalas. Fly anglers are finding success using size 6 bead-head soft hackle flies in brown/green/pearl or black/blue/red patterns. The reservoir was stocked in late October with about 37,000 tiger trout. The tigers were about seven inches long. About 2,500 rainbow trout—some averaging 24 inches long—were also stocked.

Uinta Lakes

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

(Dec 9) Fishing is good to hot at many of the mountain lakes this week, according to anglers. One angler last week described their fishing experience as providing nonstop action. Tiger trout, rainbow trout and a few brook trout were the most likely catch this week — and they were reportedly very hungry and aggressive. We also received a couple reports of people catching greyling. According to one angler who fished in the mountains on November 28, the ice at these lakes ranges from four to six inches in thickness. Be cautious, however, because ice conditions and thickness may have changed since this report. The most productive depth for fishing was six feet of water. We highly recommend snowmobiles or 4WD because of the heavy snow in the mountains during the winter. Please be sure to check road and weather conditions before heading up to the Uintas!

We highly recommend snowmobiles or 4WD because of the heavy snow in the mountains during the winter. Please be sure to check road and weather conditions before heading up to the Uintas!

(Nov 24) Although anglers reported fun fishing for tiger trout and rainbow trout, the weather conditions made the road a challenge for several reporting anglers. Snowmobiles or 4WD are highly recommended due to heavy snow in the mountains. Please be sure to check road and weather conditions before heading up to the Uintas. The Uinta lakes are icing over! One angler reported that Washington Lake had a hard four inches of ice on Nov. 13. Ice conditions could have changed between this week and the last. Be aware that fishing on thin ice is dangerous. We received reports of anglers falling through the ice last week. If you would like to take the personal risk of attempting ice fishing in these unsafe conditions, be extremely careful and take every possible measure to protect yourself. Waders, throw ropes and personal flotation devices such as life jackets are all highly recommended gear to bring with you on your trip.

(Nov 19) Fishing is good for tiger and rainbow trout. According to one angler, the Uinta lakes are starting to ice over. This angler reported that every lake by the road had a thin layer of ice. Washington had about three inches of ice with some patches of open water. The ice may thicken this weekend because of the cold weather in the forecast. Be aware, however, that fishing on this thin ice is very dangerous. We have received reports of anglers falling through the ice this week.

(Dec 1) Fishing is fair to good on the Weber this week, according to anglers. The river is low from Croydon to Echo. The mouth of the canyon saw some tough catching this week. One angler reports plenty of hits, but very few fish willing to commit to their spinners. They ended up catching two fish on spinners. Another angler fishing the mouth of the canyon pulled in two 18- to 20-inch cutthroat trout using nymphs. Fishing was tougher on the river around Riverdale, too. One angler missed a few hits, lost a nice fish, and landed one brown trout using spinners. Another angler using a spinner didn't catch anything and a fly fisherman wasn't catching anything there either.

(Nov 24) Fishing on the Weber has been fair to good this week. Brown trout and rainbow trout caught recently in the Weber haven't been very large. Try using a Rapala, Panther Martin, a worm on a spinner, or a white jig. If you're using flies, you might want to try a sowbug pattern or a San Juan worm above a beadhead.

(Nov 19) Fishing appears to have slowed down this week. One group of anglers who fished near Taggart had fish chase their spinners, but only caught one fish. Anglers have caught smaller brown and rainbow trout recently. Try using a Rapala, Panther Martin, a worm on a spinner or a white jig. If you're using flies, you might want to try a sowbug pattern or a San Juan worm above a beadhead.
