No recent reports.

Regulations

Deer Creek Reservoir

Brown Trout, Cutthroat Trout, Largemouth Bass, Rainbow Trout, Smallmouth Bass, Walleye, Yellow Perch

(Jul 14) Anglers have been catching rainbows, bass and walleye. For bass, try using craw orange swirl Lost Creek 3-inch Craws, Strike King KVD jerkbaits, Rippin' Lips spinnerbaits or Yo-Zuri 3DB poppers. As bass move into deeper water, try using the dropshot method. You can use most plastics with the dropshot method. Just remember to vary the distance between the lure and dropshot, depending on where the fish are suspended. Popular rigs include whacky, nose or Texas rigs. Recommended hooks for dropshotting include Gamakatsu Offset Shank Worm EWGs or Gamakatsu Finesse Wide Gaps, and recommended weights include Bullet Weights Tungsten weights, Bullet Weights Drop Shot Finesse Drop weights or Souders Brass and Glass weights. For trout, try using silver popgear or chartreuse or pink Mack's Lure Wedding Rings. Trolling for rainbows has been great along the northwest shoreline and near the island. Shore anglers have reported success fishing for rainbows using traditional methods, but also while jigging curly tail grubs and tube jigs tipped with a worm.

(Jun 29) Anglers are catching 16- to 18-inch rainbows and smallmouth bass. They're also catching 18- to 20-inch walleye. If you're targeting smallmouth bass, try using a variety of techniques. When fishing plastics try using 4-inch green pumpkin Gary Yamamoto Senkos, green pumpkin, Dry Creek 3.5-inch Skirt Chasers or chartreuse shad Berkley Gulp! minnows. When fishing crankbaits and jerkbaits, try using a Lucky Craft Ghost Minnow Pointer 65SP, Yo-Zuri 3DB Vibes or a Storm Wiggle Wart. Remember when fishing crankbaits or jerkbaits, you want to fish them with a fast retrieve to illicit a fast attack you should also try to cover more territory. When fishing top water baits try using Strike King KVD spinnerbaits, BOOYAH Buzz buzzbaits and Whopper Plopper Larry Dahlberg Signature Series poppers, and fish these baits using a popping, walking or splashing technique. When fishing swimbaits try using green pumpkin Lost Creek 3.5-inch LC Swimmers or 4-inch Keitech Easy Shiners, and fish these baits using a popping, ripping, splashing or steady retrieval technique.

(Jun 22) Anglers have been catching decent-sized rainbows and smallmouth bass. For rainbows, try fishing in about 10 to 15 feet feet of water and use Garlic Rainbow PowerBait or a nightcrawler. For smallmouth bass, try using Rapala DT 410, Bomber 6A or Yellow Perch Rapala Rippin' Rap.

Regulations

(Jul 14) Fishing has been good for wipers, smallmouth bass and rainbow trout. One angler reported catching all three species in a very short period of time.

(Jun 30) The water is approximately 65 degrees and flowing over the spillway. One angler reported good fishing for smallmouth bass by using a small jig and plastic in the trees and brush. Those fishing for smallmouth near the rocks on the west side reported no luck this week. Try casting about parallel to shore and reeling back from there. Other anglers reported a good catch for rainbow trout as well.

(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.

Echo Reservoir

Bass, Brown Trout, Channel Catfish, Crappie, Rainbow Trout

Flaming Gorge Reservoir

Brown Trout, Burbot, Channel Catfish, Crayfish, Kokanee Salmon, Mackinaw (Lake Trout), Rainbow Trout, Smallmouth Bass

FISH CONSUMPTION ADVISORY

(Jul 14) Kokanee Salmon: fair to good fishing. The reservoir has risen eight feet this spring. The water temperature has climbed to 70F, and kokanee have started moving down in the water column, seeking deeper, cooler water. The early morning bite is the most consistent, but some anglers have done well later in the day along the shade of the main channel. Most of the fish caught this week were 30 to 65 feet deep and were caught by anglers trolling 1.6 - 2.0 mph. Watch your fish finder, though, and adjust your lure depth to put your lure where you're marking fish. If you're not marking fish, move to another spot. Fishing with pink and orange mini squid, with a silver dodger scented with garlic, has worked great. Spoons (#2-3 Needlefish, Vipers), squids (pink, orange) and dodgers (silver/pink or orange) have been working best. Smaller kokanee are abundant this year. To increase the chance you catch a larger kokanee, try dropping deeper and using larger dodgers/squids or spoons. Also, tip your lures with Gulp maggots, meal worms or corn.

Rainbow Trout: fair fishing. Cutthroat trout may also be caught incidentally. Now that the water temperature is high, fish during the cooler part of the day, especially early in the morning. The trout are occupying deeper, cooler water, so adjust accordingly. If fishing from a boat, try casting jigs near creek inlets and shallow points, or trolling pop gear at 20-30 feet deep along the shoreline. If you're fishing from shore, cast parallel to the shoreline, let the bait sink some, and then slowly retrieve it, using occasional jigging strokes. Marabou jigs in earth tone colors are a good option in shallow or deep water. When you catch a trout, there are likely more nearby. Pinch down the barbs on your hooks so you can release fish faster.

Lake trout: fair to good fishing. Anglers are catching smaller lake trout (pups) while trolling for kokanee salmon or jigging in 50-80 feet of water near main channel points and ridges. Using a fish finder, you might be able to locate fish that are suspended above the bottom. Troll spoons like Williams Wablers, Northland Forage Minnows, and #3 Needlefish to target aggressive pups. You can also vertically jig a white or glow-n-the-dark tube jig or jigging spoon (Northland Buckshot), tipped with sucker/chub meat. Gulp minnows and blade baits (Sebile Vibrato) can also work really well.

Smallmouth bass: good fishing. Top water fishing can be very entertaining this time of year, especially early and late in the day. Try poppers like Rebel PopRs in silver or rainbow trout colors. Jigs mimicking crayfish (earth tone colors), the smallmouth's primary forage, are the best option. For bigger fish, trying fishing 20 feet deep or deeper.

Burbot: slow fishing. Few reports. Boaters should target burbot on rocky points and shorelines, in 30-40 feet of water. The best fishing will be found at night using glow-in-the-dark lures like Yamamoto grubs, Radical Glow tubes, Maniac Cutterbugs and Northland Buckshot spoons. Tip the lure with sucker/chub meat, recharge its glow frequently, and jig the presentation a couple inches off the bottom.

(Jun 30) The water level is at 6,031 feet and increasing. The water temperature is about 70 degrees F in the canyon, or Utah region of the reservoir.

Kokanee salmon: Fishing is fair to good. The reservoir has risen seven feet this spring and water temperatures have climbed to 70 degrees F. Kokanee have started moving down in the water column, preferring deeper, cooler water. The early morning bite is most consistent, but some anglers have done well later in the day along the shade of the main channel. Most of the fish caught this week came from 30 to 60 feet and 1.6 to 2.2 mph, but watch your fish finder and adjust your lure depth to where you're marking fish. Smaller spoons (#1 Needlefish, Vipers), squids (pink, orange) and dodgers (silver/pink or orange) are working best. Tip lures with Gulp maggots, mealworms or corn.

Rainbow trout: Fishing is fair. You might catch some cutthroat trout, too. Fishing is good in the canyon along the shore using bait or casting small jigs and spinners. Marabou jigs in earth tone colors are a good option in shallow or deep water. If you're fishing from a boat, try casting jigs near creek inlets and shallow points, or trolling pop gear at 10 to 20 feet deep along the shoreline. Cicada patterns are also working well, especially in Hideout Bay. If you're fishing from shore, cast parallel to the shoreline, let the bait sink some and slowly retrieve with occasional jigging strokes. When you catch one, there are likely more. Pinch down the barbs for quick release.

Lake trout: Fishing is fair to good. Anglers are catching smaller lake trout (pups) while trolling for kokanee salmon or jigging in 50 to 80 feet of water near main channel points and ridges. Fish can be found suspended above the bottom using a fish finder. Troll spoons like Williams Wablers, Northland Forage Minnows and Needlefish or crankbaits like Rapalas to target aggressive pups. Vertically jig a white or glow-n-the-dark tube jig or jigging spoon (Northland Buckshot), tipped with sucker/chub meat. Gulp minnows and blade baits (Sebile Vibrato) can also work well.

Smallmouth bass: Fishing is great. Smallmouth bass are active in the shallows and top water fishing is very entertaining this time of year, especially early and late in the day. Try poppers like Rebel PopRs in silver or rainbow trout colors. Jigs mimicking crayfish, their primary forage, are always a great option too. Rooster tails along the rocky drop offs have also been a big hit the last week or so.

Burbot: Fishing is slow and we haven't received many reports. Boaters should target burbot on rocky points and shorelines in 30 to 40 feet of water. The best activity happens at night using glow-in-the-dark lures like Yamamoto grubs, Radical Glow tubes, Maniac Cutterbugs and Northland Buckshot spoons. Tip the lure with sucker/chub meat, recharge glow frequently and jig the presentation a couple inches from the bottom.

Green River

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

STOP NEW ZEALAND MUDSNAIL

(Jul 14) Water flows have dropped and will average 2,400 cfs starting July 11.

Dry fly fishing has been stellar the last week or two, and it should continue now that the flows have dropped. The big news is the abundant yellow sally and caddis hatches. They've been intense through A and B sections. At times, the hatches are so thick that they look like snow. PMDs have also been good in lower B section. Fishing late in the day should provide the most success. Nymphing is also good. Try a dropper with a cicada on top and a midge or scud trailing a few feet below.

Spin fishing is fair. Marabou jigs or tube jigs in earth tones and whites are a good option in shallow or deep water. Brightly colored spoons, spinners and crankbaits may also entice fish. Pinch down the barbs on your hooks, so you can release fish faster.

(Jun 30) Flows are currently at 8,600 cfs, but are scheduled to decrease July 5. Flaming Gorge Dam shall decrease to base flow releases at 2,400 cfs. Streamer fishing has been good, especially in slow water (eddies) early and late in the day. Nymph fishing has also been productive using scuds, soft hackles, San Juan worms and juju midges. Set your nymph rig at 8 to 12 feet and target seams of fast and slow water. Fishing with cicadas has also been good, especially in A-section. Try a dry dropper, using a cicada as a strike indicator with a nymph trailing two to three feet below. Yellow sally and caddis hatches have been increasing each day, so expect dry fly fishing to get even better as the flows start to drop. Spin fishing is also good. Marabou jigs or tube jigs in earth tones and whites are a good option in shallow or deep water. Brightly colored spoons, spinners and crankbaits may also entice fish. Pinch down the barbs for quick release.

FISH CONSUMPTION ADVISORY

(Jul 14) Anglers have been catching rainbows, bass and perch. Anglers report success fishing for bass using a Carolina rig. Most plastics work well when using a Carolina rig, but recommended plastics include four-inch Gary Yamamoto Senkos or Lost Creek five-inch LC Trick Sticks. For perch, try using a 1/32-ounce chartreuse or pink jig tipped with a nightcrawler or mealworm, or use a chartreuse Marabou jig.

(Jun 29) Anglers are catching browns, rainbows and smallmouth bass. Fishing has been great near the Provo River inlet and near the dam. If you're targeting brown trout, try using bladebaits such as Rapala Jigging Raps or Rapala Rattlin' Raps or spoons such as Buck-Shot Flutter spoons or 3/8-ounce Kastmasters. For smallmouth bass, try using craw orange swirl Lost Creek 3-inch Craws, Strike King KVD jerkbaits, Rippin' Lips spinnerbaits or Yo-Zuri 3DB poppers.

(Jun 22) Anglers have been catching 14- to 18-inch rainbows and 18- to 20-inch browns. Try fishing for rainbows on the south side of the lake, using PowerBait, spoons and spinners. For browns, try using crankbaits and minnow-imitating lures. Perch-colored Rapalas appear to be the go-to lure for browns right now.

Pelican Lake

Bluegill, Green Sunfish, Largemouth Bass

(Jul 14) Anglers are doing well catching bluegill on their spawning beds. To locate the bluegill, look for clear water and weed beds or structure in deeper parts of the lake. Those fishing for bass have done well lately using buzz baits and Senkos. The water may appear red in some areas due to pumping from the canal. Limits have been liberalized: you can keep 12 largemouth bass, and there's no limit on bluegill.

(Jun 30) Anglers are doing well catching bluegill on spawning beds. To locate bluegill, look for clear water and weed beds/structure in deeper parts or the lake. Water may appear red in some areas due to pumping from the canal. Anglers are catching bass on buzzbaits for topwater and on senkos. Due to spring runoff and warmer water temperatures, bowfishing for carp in shallows is excellent this time of year. Due to a treatment that has now been moved to the fall of 2018, limits have been liberalized to 12 largemouth bass and no limit on bluegill.

FISH CONSUMPTION ADVISORY

(Jul 14) Kokanee fishing was excellent this past week! For best results, try trolling a pink mini squid with a very silver/iridescent dodger. Fly anglers were also finding success using size 6-8 bead head leeches and buggers in olive, black/orange, and purple. The water temperature was 65 degrees, and visibility was about 6 to seven feet. Anglers say the water level at the reservoir is about two feet below full, and that it's dropping. DWR biologists stocked more than 250 crappie from Pineview Reservoir into the reservoir, to establish a new population of forage fish. If you catch a crappie, please release it so the fish can help establish the new population.

(Jun 30) Shore anglers report good fishing for most species. Kokanee fishing picked up throughout the week. Try using a pink or an orange dodger with a squid spinner. Fishing has been best in the early morning until about mid afternoon. Try using PowerBait or spinners from shore. Warmer water temperatures have improved the smallmouth bass fishing, especially along the rocky shorelines near the bridge. Biologists moved more than 250 crappie from Pineview to Starvation to establish a new population of forage fish. If you catch crappie, we're asking that you voluntarily release them so they can establish this population.

Steinaker Reservoir

Bluegill, Largemouth Bass, Rainbow Trout

FISH CONSUMPTION ADVISORY

(Jul 14) Bluegill fishing is super fast for those fishing from boats. For decent-sized bluegill, try fishing along the northern shoreline. For largemouth bass, try along the rocky shore on the reservoir's east side. Try using small tube jigs tipped with a nightcrawler in about 8-15 feet of water. If you're fishing from the shore, you may use a bubble or bobber to suspend your jig off the bottom. Note: The DWR has issued an emergency change that removes fish limits at Steinaker. You're welcome to keep all of the fish you catch. This change will remain in effect until Dec. 31, 2017 and will likely be extended into 2018. The Bureau of Reclamation will be drawing Steinaker down this year and in 2018 to prepare for dam repair work. The drawdown will take the reservoir past dead pool and a complete fish kill is expected. It will be restocked with bluegill, rainbow trout and brown trout soon after it refills. Largemouth bass will be restocked the year after refilling begins.

(Jun 30) Boat anglers report hot bluegill fishing. Try fishing along the northern shoreline for decent-sized bluegill, and along the eastern rocky shore for largemouth bass. Use small jigs tipped with a nightcrawler in 8 to 15 feet of water. If you're fishing from the shore, you may use a bubble or bobber to suspend your line off of the bottom. As of April 22, the Division has issued an emergency change, liberalizing limits at Steinaker. There is no daily bag limit for any species: largemouth or smallmouth bass, rainbow or brown trout, and bluegill. This change will remain in effect until December 31, 2017, though this will most likely be extended into 2018. The Bureau of Reclamation will be drawing down Steinaker Reservoir this year and next year in preparation for dam repair work. The drawdown will take the reservoir past dead pool and a complete fish kill is expected. It will be restocked with bluegill, rainbow trout and brown trout upon refilling, and largemouth bass the year after refilling begins.

Strawberry Reservoir

Crayfish, Cutthroat Trout, Kokanee Salmon, Rainbow Trout, Smallmouth Bass

(Jul 14) Anglers are catching rainbows, cutthroats and kokanee salmon. For cutthroat, try using popgear; chartreuse, orange or pink Mack's Lure Wedding Rings; white or glow tube jigs; or a nightcrawler tipped with a marshmallow. For kokanee, stick with pink, chartreuse, white, or glow squids with white, pink or chartreuse dodgers. You can tip the squid with Berkley Gulp! maggots and scent with Pro Cure Trout and Kokanee Super Gel. Anglers are having luck fishing for kokanee in about 3842 feet of water and trolling at about 1.31.6 mph.

(Jun 29) Anglers are catching rainbows, cutthroats and kokanee. Kokanee fishing is hot right now. For kokanee try using Mack's Lure Cha Cha Kokanee, 1- to 1.5-inch light pink Radical Glow tube jigs, Shasta Tackle Pee Wee Wiggle Hoochies, Rocky Mountain Plankton or UV pink Rocky Mountain Tackle Super Squids. Popular dodgers for kokanee include Rocky Mountain Tackle UV dodger, Shasta Sling Blade Shatter eye dodger, Mack's Sling Blade dodger and Rocky Mountain Tackle Signature Dodger. Kokanee are still fairly shallow right now, so if you are fishing for kokanee for the first time use size 7 Berkley McMahon Swivels to attach a 1-2 ounce banana sinker to the line followed with 3 to five feet of leader to the dodger with 7 to 20 inches of leader to the lure. Use fluorocarbon 12 pound test and let out 50-200 feet of line depending on the depth you are fishing.

(Jun 22) Shore fishing is fair, but anglers report great success fishing from boats. Anglers are catching 14- to 16-inch rainbows, 18- to 20-inch cutthroats and kokanee salmon. Kokanee fishing has been great. For kokanee, try using Mack's Lure Cha Cha Kokanee, 1- to 1.5-inch light pink Radical Glow tube jigs, Shasta Tackle Pee Wee Wiggle Hoochies, Yakima Flash Glo Squid Spinners or UV pink Rocky Mountain Tackle Super Squids. For trout, try using Gitzit Bait Savers, white or glow tube jigs (tipped with a nightcrawler or mealworm) or gold-black Mepps Aglia Marabous.

Uinta Lakes

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

(Jul 14) Anglers are reporting excellent fishing in the Uintas. One angler reported catching a large brown trout in the Upper Provo using a large pheasant tail and hare's ear bead heads. A family of anglers fishing from kayaks said that fishing was great. While they chased fish with small flies on the surface or using a strike indicator, their children did well using a fly and bubble. This group used bird nests, small wet flies in tan and olive, small bead heads in olive, red midges, mayfly patterns in various colors and brown hackle peacock flies. All of which produced well. You can tackle almost every lake using a fly and bubble rig and do very well right now. You could also troll small crankbaits in the larger lakes and land some rainbow trout. Anglers recommend that you bring insect repellent on your next trip.

(Jul 6) This is a perfect time to go out and enjoy some magnificent mountain solitude. We have received many reports of anglers catching large numbers of fish in a wide variety of waters. Those hiking deep into the Uintas reported good fishing for arctic grayling, brook trout and tiger trout. Fishing was also good at Lily Lake, Whitney Reservoir and Beaver Lake. Stream levels are much lower than previous weeks, making it a great time to fish. The Bear River has lots of pocket water and is looking great for fly-fishing. Many other streams in the area have good conditions for angling, including Mill Creek, McKenzie Creek, East and West Blacks Fork and Smiths Fork. Many lakes in the Uintas were stocked with additional rainbow trout on July 3.

(Jun 30) The streams in the mountains are flowing slower than previous weeks, but some snow still remains at the headwaters of each drainage. The Bear River near the U.S. Forest Service ranger station appears to be good for fishing and some hatches are coming off of it. Fishing has been good at Lily Lake, Whitney Reservoir and Beaver Lake. The DWR Aquatics Section reports that all lakes on Mirror Lake Highway and the North Slope have been stocked with catchables, so fishing there should be good.
