Regulations

Bear Lake

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

STOP WHIRLING DISEASE

(May 19) With water temperatures increasing, fishing for lake trout and cutthroat trout has improved from previous weeks. Jigs tipped with cisco or sucker meat are doing well. If you're targeting cutthroat trout, try using bait or lures that are bright colors like red, silver and chartreuse. If you're targeting lake trout, blue or white are a good bet. Anglers are doing well trolling at approximately 2.5 miles per hour. This week, three anglers reported landing very large lake trout, while other reporting anglers brought in large amounts of smaller lakes and cutthroats.

(May 12) The lake has been stocked with cutthroat trout throughout the week. Anglers have recently reported catching fish in approximately 25 feet of water by trolling at low speed. If you're fishing from shore, try using crankbaits or spoons.

(May 11) The lake was stocked with cutthroat trout last week. Anglers report catching fish in approximately 25 feet of water. If you're among the anglers who have experienced slow fishing recently, slow down your trolling speed or use very light jigging techniques. If you're fishing from shore, try using crankbaits or spoons.

(May 5) One group of anglers reported slow fishing this week after trolling at multiple depths using several different types of lures. They also said that other groups of anglers weren't pulling many fish from the water either

(Apr 28) Anglers report good fishing whether they're in boats or on the shoreline for cutthroat trout and lake trout.

Cutthroat Trout, Rainbow Trout

(May 19) The stream fishing has provided some decent-sized brown trout in the last two weeks. Anglers are having success casting from shore with sinking Rapalas in trout patterns.

(Apr 29) Ice-off conditions have arrived! There is roughly a 10- to 15-foot gap between the shore and ice throughout the reservoir. Forecasts estimate that the entire reservoir will be ice-free by the end of the month. Ice-off conditions tend to be great for shore fishing. As the ice slowly recedes, the water near shore warms and draws in hungry fish from deeper depths. The stream fishing should be good, too. The road is only open to the dam. We haven't received any recent angler reports.

Cutler Reservoir

Bass, Catfish, Crappie, Sunfish

No recent reports.

Regulations

Deer Creek Reservoir

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

(May 26) Angling pressure has been steady, and anglers have been catching 14- to 18-inch rainbows, 18- to 21-inch browns, walleye and smallmouth bass. There have been reports of smallmouth bass showing spawning behavior, but you can expect the spawn to begin in early June. For smallmouth bass, try fishing near Rainbow Bay and around the island. Look for shallow flats that extend out towards deeper waters. When fishing plastics for smallmouth bass, try using curly tail grubs, stick worms, crawfish pattern, and tube jigs with a 1/8- to 1/4-ounce jighead. You can also try using minnow-imitating lures, crankbaits and spinnerbaits for smallmouth bass. Anglers have had success trolling for rainbows and browns using popgear with a Mack's Wedding Ring Spinner tipped with a nightcrawler or while jigging a Live Yellow Perch Rapala.

Flaming Gorge Reservoir

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

FISH CONSUMPTION ADVISORY

(May 19) The water is at 6,022 feet and increasing. The water temperature is about 50 degrees F in the canyon, or Utah region of the reservoir. All launches are open. Lucerne Valley Marina is sponsoring the Flaming Gorge Fish Derby May 20 and 21. Learn the details at the Flaming Gorge Fish Derby website.

Kokanee salmon: Anglers report catching kokanee! Fishing is fair to good. Now that water temperatures have warmed into the 50s, fishing is starting to pick up consistently. Successful anglers are catching most kokanee close to the surface, 15 feet or shallower. Troll planer boards to get the lure out away from the boat for boat-shy fish. If you don't have planer boards, try a longer set-back, 100 to 200 feet behind the boat. As the water warms, kokanee will move deeper and start showing up on the fish finder. Smaller spoons (#1 Needlefish, Vipers), squids (pink, orange) and dodgers (silver/pink or orange) have been working best. Try tipping lures with Gulp maggots, mealworms or corn.

Rainbow trout: Fishing is fair to good. You might catch some cutthroat trout, too. In the canyon, fishing is good 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 fishing from a boat, try casting jigs near creek inlets and shallow points. If 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. Stocking will commence the week before Memorial Day.

Lake trout: Fishing is fair to good. Recent reports have been spotty. Anglers are catching smaller lake trout (pups) while trolling for kokanee salmon or while jigging in 40 to 70 feet of water near main channel points and ridges. Fish may be located suspended above the bottom using a sonar or fish finder. Try dropping a white or glow-n-the-dark tube jig or jigging spoon tipped with sucker/chub meat. Gulp minnows also work well. Also try trolling crankbaits behind planer boards along the shoreline, early and late in the day.

Smallmouth bass: Fishing is finally picking up. Jerk baits work great for groggy bass this time of year. Use a jerk-jerk-pause retrieve, varying the length of the pause. Good colors include, rainbow trout, pink and silver. Jigs mimicking crayfish are also a great option. Expect the afternoon bite to be best, especially on sunlit, rocky shoreline.

Burbot: Fishing is fair. Boaters should target burbot on rocky points and shorelines in 10 to 40 feet of water. The best activity is 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.

(Apr 29) The water is 45 to 49 degrees F in the canyon, or Utah region of the reservoir. The lake is ice free and all launches are open. Fishing varies from slow to good, depending on species.

Kokanee Salmon: Fishing picks up when the water temperature warms into the 50s, but some kokanee are biting while anglers vertical jig with spoons. You should also try trolling close to the surface.

Rainbow Trout: Fishing is fair to good. This time of year when rainbow trout cruise the shorelines near the boat ramps. In the canyon, fishing is good along the shore using bait or casting small jigs and spinners. Marabou jigs (Zig Jigs) in pink, brown, olive, white and black will work, too. The earthtone colors are a good option in shallow or deep water. If fishing from a boat, try casting jigs near creek inlets and shallow points. If 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 good. Recent reports have been excellent! Anglers are catching fish deep on diving crankbaits. Anglers are catching smaller lake trout (pups) while jigging in 50 to 70 feet of water near main channel points and ridges. Fish can be easily located suspended above the bottom using a sonar or fish finder.

Smallmouth Bass: Fishing is fair. It'll start picking up over the next few weeks as water temperatures reach into the 50s.

Burbot: Fishing is slow. Boaters can still look for burbot on rocky points and shorelines in 10 to 40 feet of water. The best activity 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 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

(May 19) Due to heavy snowpack in the upper Green River drainage, flows are currently 6,600 cfs but will increase to 8,600 cfs again at the end of May. Fishing is still good during high flows. Streamer fishing has been good, especially in slow water (eddies). Nymph fishing has also been productive using scuds, soft hackles, BWO emergers, San Juan worms and juju midges. Set your nymph rig deep, 8 to 12 feet, and target seams of fast and slow water. Midge and mayfly hatches are tapering off, but have been best just above Little Hole in the afternoons. Look for rising fish in eddies and hugging the bank. A few cicadas have been reported on the A section as well as on Flaming Gorge Reservoir. Spin fishing is usually 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.

(Apr 29) Flows have remained steady at 8,600 cfs. Fishing is still good during high flows. The high flows have impacted the wade fishing options, but fishing from a drift boat should be good now that the river has stabilized. The fish have adjusted well, and fishing will be good for the rest of the spring. Try using scuds, soft hackles, midges and egg patterns. Set your nymph rig deep, at 8 to 12 feet. Midge and mayfly hatches have also been reported above Little Hole on warm, calm days. Look for rising fish in eddies and close to the bank. Spin fishing is good. Marabou jigs or tube jigs in earthtones 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.

STOP WHIRLING DISEASE

FISH CONSUMPTION ADVISORY

(May 26) Angling pressure has been steady, and anglers have been catching 14- to 16-inch rainbows. Try using Jake's Spin-A-Lures (silver with red dots), regular gold/yellow Panther Martin Classic Teardrop spinners or Green Tiger or Pink UV Blue Fox Pixee Spoons. When fishing, select locations and contour changes that confuse bait fish. Try to consolidate them in one location like coves that gradually drop in depth.

(May 10) Our biologists recently concluded their spring gillnetting survey at Jordanelle. They found healthy numbers of brown and rainbow trout in the 12- to 16-inch range. They also found some trophy browns up to 28 inches and 8.5 pounds. Biologists were excited to capture both kokanee salmon and tiger muskies that were stocked as fingerlings last year. The muskies were smaller than six inches in July 2016, and are now 15 inches long that's nine inches of growth in ten months. The kokanee were first stocked into Jordanelle in April 2016 as two- to three-inch fingerlings, and now they're eight and nine inches long. We will be stocking more than 18,000 12-inch rainbow trout into Jordanelle this week. The adipose fins of these fish are clipped so biologists can distinguish them from past and future stockings to track survival. Anglers have reported catching 12- to 14-inch rainbows, 18-inch browns, and an occasional smallmouth bass and kokanee. Anglers have had success fishing from the shore near Rockcliff and the personal watercraft launch ramp. Boaters have had success near the Provo River Inlet and dam. Try using PowerBait, spinners, spoons, minnow-imitating lures, bladebaits, and soft plastic or living-fiber jigs.

Steinaker Reservoir

Bluegill, Largemouth Bass, Rainbow Trout

FISH CONSUMPTION ADVISORY

(May 19) Biologists conducted population surveys on April 24 and discovered some large brown trout. 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. Fishing has been best in the early morning and late evenings. Try using a two- to three-inch white tube jig tipped with nightcrawler, or black marabou jig for trout. You may also try using a Jake's lure. Warmer water temperatures should increase the bass activity along the rocky shorelines and drop offs. The water temperatures are hovering in the low to mid 50s.
