Regulations

Duck Fork Reservoir

Colorado River Cutthroat Trout, Tiger Trout (hybrid)

(Sep 28) Anglers have caught tiger trout and cutthroat trout using various bugger, soft hackle and leech flies in sizes 6 to 10. Fishing is best when you can get out into deeper water away from the shore. Duck Fork Reservoir was stocked with almost 1,300 cutthroat trout on July 2 and 1,560 tiger trout on Aug. 2.

Regulations

East Canyon Reservoir

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

(Oct 9) Fishing has been good from boats. Anglers are using pop gear and a worm to catch trout and wipers. Shoreline anglers have been doing well with rainbow or green PowerBait. Use lures to catch wipers from shore.

Forsyth Reservoir

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

STOP WHIRLING DISEASE

(Oct 12) The reservoir has mostly filled after being drawn fairly low earlier in the summer. It appears that a fair amount of trout survived the low water, though fishing is still slow right now.

Huntington Reservoir

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

(Sep 28) Huntington Reservoir is about 17 percent full, so the boat ramp is well out of the water. Fishing is still good, though, especially if you can fish from a float tube or a small boat. With fly tackle, anglers have been successful using size 6 bead headed crystal buggers in black/orange/pearl color combinations. You might also do well with bead headed soft hackle flies with tan tinsel, brown/green/pearl crystal buggers or plum leeches with a purple tail. The tiger trout have been between 14 and 18 inches long.

Regulations

Hyrum Reservoir

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

STOP WHIRLING DISEASE

(Oct 9) Fishing is improving at Hyrum as the water cools. Anglers report catching trout, perch and bass. You can catch trout from the shore and from boats. Perch fishing is good from the fishing dock, and bass fishing is good along the south shoreline with Rapalas.

Joe's Valley Reservoir

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

FISH CONSUMPTION ADVISORY

(Sep 28) Fishing has been slow to fair at Joes Valley Reservoir, though trout fishing should pick up as temperatures begin to drop. Try using jigs tipped with chub meat or crankbaits for catching trout and tiger muskies here. Anglers have also had some luck catching cutthroat trout using size 4 bead head crystal buggers in black/silver and black/red/blue color combinations on fast-sinking fly line. The boat ramp is out of the water at Joes Valley Reservoir.
