Birch Creek Reservoir

Cutthroat Trout, Rainbow Trout, Tiger Trout (hybrid)

No recent reports.

Causey Reservoir

Cutthroat Trout, Kokanee Salmon, Rainbow Trout, Splake (hybrid), Tiger Trout (hybrid)

(Jun 22) The water at Causey is a dark, almost opaque brown, and the water is flowing over the spillway. One angler reports no bites even after using many different types of tackle. If you still want to try your luck this week, anglers recommend fishing the inlet.

(Jun 9) Anglers report decent fishing below the spillway. Try using PowerBait or a worm.

(Jun 4) The water at Causey is high, murky and cold. Anglers reported very slow fishing.

Regulations

Duck Fork Reservoir

Colorado River Cutthroat Trout, Tiger Trout (hybrid)

(Jun 9) The road to the reservoir was still closed on June 6. The gate will likely open soon. Check with the Manti-La Sal National Forest for road updates.

Regulations

East Canyon Reservoir

Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout, Smallmouth Bass, Tiger Trout (hybrid)

(Jun 22) The water temperature was in the high 50s last weekend and the reservoir has been filling rapidly. Though some anglers report a slower catch, especially those fishing from shore, others are pulling in many rainbow trout. Try trolling near the shoreline using Rapalas. If you can only fish from shore, try floating garlic PowerBait 3-4 feet off the bottom.

(Jun 9) The water is warming up quickly. Anglers report fair to good fishing for trout and bass. One angler caught a few nice-sized trout before 8 a.m., but anglers fishing later in the day varied in their success. Try using a black woolly bugger, garlic PowerBait or pop gear with a worm.

(Jun 4) Fishing is good to hot at East Canyon this week for both rainbow trout and smallmouth bass. Anglers reported catching their limit within an hour or two, primarily by trolling. Anglers report catching fish only 20-30 feet from shore.

Forsyth Reservoir

Rainbow Trout, Splake (hybrid), Tiger Trout (hybrid)

STOP WHIRLING DISEASE

No recent reports.

Huntington Reservoir

Brown Trout, Cutthroat Trout, Rainbow Trout, Tiger Trout (hybrid)

(Jun 9) The reservoir is now open. Lots of tiger trout were found during recent gill net surveys. Some of these trout appear to be eating worms off the bottom, so small night crawlers might work well.

Regulations

Hyrum Reservoir

Bluegill, Largemouth Bass, Rainbow Trout, Tiger Trout (hybrid), Yellow Perch

STOP WHIRLING DISEASE

(Jun 22) Fishing has recently been slow to fair at Hyrum. Most anglers who were successful fished in the early mornings or late evenings. Try slowing down your trolling speed.

(Jun 9) The state park reports slow fishing at Hyrum this week. To increase your chances of success, fish early in the morning or late in the evening.

(Jun 4) The reservoir is full and the water temperature is in the low 60s. The boat dock within Hyrum State Park has been set up. The state park reports decent fishing for trout.

Joe's Valley Reservoir

Crayfish, Cutthroat Trout, Rainbow Trout, Tiger Trout (hybrid), Splake (hybrid)

FISH CONSUMPTION ADVISORY

(Jun 9) Try using 1/4-ounce jig heads, with white plastic tubes or chub meat, to catch cutthroat trout, tiger trout and splake. As chubs move into the shallows to spawn, chub meat will become an especially effective bait for these large predatory fish.

Regulations

Mill Meadow Reservoir

Brake (hybrid), Brownbows (hybrid), Perch, Rainbow, Splake (hybrid), Tiger Musky (hybrid), Tiger Trout (hybrid)

STOP WHIRLING DISEASE

No recent reports.

Regulations

Monroe Mountain Lakes

Rainbow Trout, Tiger Trout (hybrid)

(Jun 22) The Box Creek reservoirs and north-end lakes have been stocked with catchable-sized rainbow trout and should provide fair to good fishing. Manning Meadow Reservoir is closed to fishing until July 8.

Palisade Reservoir

Cutthroat Trout, Rainbow Trout, Tiger Trout (hybrid)

(Jun 22) Anglers have been catching 14- to 16-inch rainbows. Try using spinnerbaits, a silver or gold Jake's Spin-A-Lure, salmon eggs under a bobber, PowerBait or nightcrawlers.

(Jun 4) Anglers have been catching rainbows, cutthroats and tigers. For rainbows and cutthroats, traditional methods work well. For tigers, try using spinnerbaits, spoons or minnow-imitating lures.

Panguitch Lake

Brook Trout, Cutthroat Trout, Rainbow Trout, Tiger Trout (hybrid)

(Jun 22) Access to Panguitch Lake is closed indefinitely due to the advance of the Brian Head Fire.

Regulations

Rockport Reservoir

Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout, Tiger Trout (hybrid), Smallmouth Bass, Yellow Perch

STOP WHIRLING DISEASE

(Jun 22) Anglers report slow to fair fishing this week. Try slowing down your trolling speed. Anglers who were successful reported fishing on the west side of the reservoir. Anglers recommend green-colored bait or lures, gold Flatfish, worms, Jake's lures, or pop gear.

(Jun 9) Anglers report excellent fishing for smallmouth bass and rainbow trout, even from shore. For rainbow trout, use worms, bright marshmallows or PowerBait. If you're shore fishing, try focusing on the east side of the reservoir or over by the dam. If you're trolling, you may have the most success with spoons and Rapalas

(Jun 4) Anglers report that the shore fishing at Rockport has really picked up compared to previous weeks, with most anglers catching decent-sized rainbows using garlic, corn or lemon twist PowerBait. If you have a fly rod, one angler reports that fly fishing was also excellent. Anglers are recommending people fish from shore on the eastern side of the reservoir, or over by the dam. If you're trolling, firetiger was the hot color pattern this week.

Regulations

Uinta Lakes

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

(Jun 9) Please use extreme caution if you're attempting to access waters in the Uinta Mountains. Warm temperatures have increased runoff significantly, and the rivers are reportedly twice their volume compared to last week. Expect murky and fast-running rivers.

(Jun 4) Snow still remains in the higher elevations. Based on current conditions, we anticipate that SR-150 (Mirror Lake Highway) will not be snow-free until a few more weeks have passed. The North Slope streams are still running high and fast, but the water is clearer than in previous weeks. Please use caution if attempting to access waters in the Uinta Mountains.

Regulations

Willow Lake

Rainbow Trout, Tiger Trout (hybrid)

(Jun 9) The lake is now open and accessible, but roads may be muddy or otherwise hazardous. Use caution when traveling up Ferron Canyon.
