Regulations

Bear Lake

Cisco, Cutthroat Trout, Mackinaw (Lake Trout), Rainbow Trout, Whitefish

STOP WHIRLING DISEASE

(Nov 10) The water level has dropped about 3.5 feet this year, but you can still launch a boat in Utah at the State Park marina, 1st Point, Cisco Beach and the Rainbow Cove boat ramps. Courtesy docks are in the water at all locations. In Idaho, you can launch at the North Beach ramp.

The road on the east side of the lake in Utah is being repaved. It's now completely paved from Laketown to the Idaho State line. This will provide much easier access on the east side of Bear Lake to the boat ramps and fishing areas along the shore.

Fishing is good for cutthroat and lake trout. Anglers are catching fish by trolling with downriggers and minnow-type lures off Cisco Beach, Rainbow Cove and North Eden. Try trolling very shallow water in the rocky shoreline areas. Anglers are catching fish at 10 feet out of 60 foot deep water. Try fishing shallow depths in the mornings and move out deeper as the sun comes up. Some anglers are also catching cutthroat and lake trout by trolling and jigging off the Gus Rich Point/Rockpile area. If you are jigging for trout, use tube jigs or swim baits in various colors in 1/2- to one ounce sizes, and three to six inches long tipped with cisco, sucker meat or Gulp minnows. White, green and chartreuse are reliable colors. Shore fishing is fair to good for cutthroat and lake trout casting large spinners and spoons off the Utah State Park marina and off the Cisco Beach.

The Bonneville whitefish should begin their spawning run the week after Thanksgiving. The run will continue through the first two weeks of December. There have been no reports of anyone catching whitefish yet, but we will continue to monitor and report on the run once it gets going.

The trout limit is two fish. You may keep cutthroat trout that have a fin clip, but you must immediately release any cutthroat trout that have all fins intact. Lake trout take a long time to reach large sizes. They are legal to keep, but many anglers are encouraging other anglers to release them so that they can grow larger.

(Oct 26) The surface water temperature is 53F and continues to drop. The water level has dropped about 3.5 feet this year, but you can still launch a boat at the Utah State Park marina, 1st Point, Cisco Beach and Rainbow Cove boat ramps in Utah. Courtesy docks are also in the water at all locations. There is also boat launching available on the Idaho side of the lake at their North Beach ramp. The road is being repaved along the entire east side of the lake in Utah. As of October 23, the road is mostly paved from Laketown to the Rainbow Cove Boat Ramp area. There are no delays due to construction. Paving will continue, but we will try to provide updates on access as frequently as possible.

Cutthroat trout fishing has been good and lake trout fishing has been very good. Anglers report the best fishing when trolling with downriggers and minnow type lures off Rainbow Cove and North Eden for both cutthroat and lake trout. Try trolling in very shallow in the rocky shoreline areas. Last weekend, anglers were catching fish at 10 feet in areas where the depth was 40 feet. Go shallow in the mornings and move out into deeper water as the sun comes up. Some anglers are also catching cutthroat and lake trout by trolling and jigging off the Gus Rich Point/Rockpile area. You might also want to try fishing off the Idaho State Park on the east side of the lake and off of the Utah State Park marina. If you are jigging for trout, use tube jigs or swim baits in various colors in 1/2- to one ounce sizes and three- to six-inch long tipped with cisco, sucker meat or Gulp minnows. Reliable colors are white, green and chartreuse. Shore fishing has been very good for spawning lake trout for anglers casting large spinners and spoons, using fly rods with large rabbit fur or articulated sculpin patterns. The best spots have been off the Utah State Park marina and off the North Beach Jetty in Idaho. The best times to fish are from about 5 p.m. until midnight and then again just prior to sunrise.

Flaming Gorge Reservoir

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

FISH CONSUMPTION ADVISORY

(Nov 8) Please keep in mind that Sheep Creek (the physical creek) from Flaming Gorge Reservoir upstream to the Ashley National Forest Service boundary is closed until 6 a.m. on Nov. 24. The fishing at Flaming Gorge varies, depending on which species you're targeting.

Lake trout: Anglers report good fishing for small lake trout while trolling or jigging in 50 to 100 feet of water near the main channel points and ridges. Watch for suspended concentrations on your fish finder and vertically jig a 1/4- to 3/8-ounce 3.5-inch white or glow-in-the-dark tube jig (Dry Creek Outfitters) tipped with sucker/chub meat. If you're trolling, try spoons like RMT Viper Serpents, Northland Forage Minnows, Super Dupers and #3 Needlefish. Small lake trout (shorter than 25 inches) have become overabundant, causing competition for food and a decrease in growth rates. If this trend continues, it will affect the trophy lake trout (less food to grow big fish). Please help by harvesting your limit of lake trout smaller than 25 inches. This size class of fish is also a tasty meal for the dinner table.

Kokanee salmon: Closed to possession until Nov. 30.

Rainbow trout: As temperatures drop, expect excellent fishing from the shoreline and boats. A boat is essential to access most of the lower reservoir; however, there is shore fishing near the Dam Point Visitor Center and boat ramps. Marabou jigs are very effective, especially in earth tones and quarter-ounce weights. Spinners, spoons and other jigs will work as well. Boat anglers will likely pick up rainbows on small spoons and spinners trolled at depths of 20 to 40 feet.

Smallmouth bass: Fishing is slowing down with the recent drop in temperatures. Jigs mimicking crayfish, their primary forage, are usually a good option.

Burbot: There haven't been many reports from anglers, but catch rates should improve now that water temperatures are in the mid to upper 50s. Typically, the highest catch rates are found near Firehole Boat Launch in late October to early November. Target burbot on rocky points and shorelines in 20 to 40 feet of water at night. Try 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 the glow frequently and jig the presentation a couple of inches from the bottom.

This is a good location to take the family. Large grassy areas, picnic tables, pavilions, playground, bathrooms and nearby fast food locations make this an ideal spot for an outing. There's also good wheelchair access.

Scofield Reservoir

Crayfish, Cutthroat Trout, Rainbow Trout

(Nov 17) Fishing at Scofield Reservoir has been very good lately. Anglers have had the most success using worms and PowerBait nuggets (chartreuse, rainbow or orange) under bobbers or bubbles at least three feet below the surface. Anglers have also had luck using size 8 bead head (copper) soft hackle flies in tan/green/pearl combinations and medium sinking line. Rainbow trout have been the most common catch lately, as well as cutthroat trout, with very few, if any, chubs. Scofield Reservoir was stocked with 121,000 tiger trout averaging almost seven inches long and about 900 wiper in mid-October. The reservoir was also stocked on Sept. 13 and 19 with more than 20,000 rainbow trout averaging about 12 inches long. Scofield has also been stocked with 12,000 cutthroat trout this year. A recent gill net survey also found several tiger muskie about 28 inches long, as well as healthy wiper and rainbow trout. Ice has begun forming on Scofield Reservoir, so use caution.

FISH CONSUMPTION ADVISORY

(Nov 8) REMINDER: Anglers may not possess kokanee salmon from Sept. 10Nov. 30. As of Nov. 6, the ranger dock was closed to public use. Rangers report that trout fishing has improved with the cooler temperatures. The reservoir's water level is holding at 64 percent, and water temperatures are hovering around 58F. Please harvest small walleye to help balance the fishery and ensure healthier walleye populations. Also, if you catch crappie, we encourage you to voluntarily release them so their population can get better established in the reservoir.

Regulations

Steinaker Reservoir

Bluegill, Largemouth Bass, Rainbow Trout

FISH CONSUMPTION ADVISORY

(Nov 8) Shore access is scattered and nearly impossible because of the deep mud and silt. There is less than five square acres of open water, which equates to about 400 acre feet. Although the water is at deadpool, many fish are still alive. We encourage the public to harvest as many fish as possible. There is no daily bag limit for any species, including largemouth and smallmouth bass, rainbow and brown trout, and bluegill. This change will remain in effect until Dec. 31, 2018. Work on the dam has begun and will continue through the winter. We will not stock brown trout or rainbow trout in 2018 or 2019, and we hope to begin restoring the fishery in 2020.
