Regulations

Benches Pond Reservoir

Rainbow Trout

(Nov 17) Benches Pond was stocked most recently on Aug. 14 with 500 rainbow trout averaging more than 11 inches long. Try using worms, PowerBait or spinners for catching these. Garlic PowerBait has worked especially well. Benches Pond may soon freeze over, so use caution.

Regulations

Blacksmith Fork River

Brook Trout, Cutthroat Trout, Rainbow Trout, Whitefish

(Oct 23) Fishing is improving because of the cooler fall temperatures. Try to fish in the early mornings and evenings.

Boulder Mountain Lakes

Brook Trout, Rainbow Trout

(Nov 17) Several Boulder Mountain lakes are closed to fishing until April 2019. Check the Utah Fishing Guidebook to see which lakes are closed. Snow has limited access to some areas, especially the Boulder Top. Recent cold temperatures have also resulted in thin ice on many lakes. Fall provides some of the best fishing of the year as the water cools down and fish get more aggressive. Fair to good fishing can be found across the mountain. Spincasting anglers should try marabou jigs, tube jigs, Gulp minnows, spinners, Jake's and Kastmasters. Focus on natural baits like nightcrawlers or cut bait. (This is especially effective for large tigers and splake.) Fly anglers should bring an assortment of streamers, terrestrials, beadhead nymphs and your favorite dry patterns. Most Boulder lakes are full of freshwater shrimp, so scuds are a must in your fly box.

Regulations

Boulger Reservoir

Rainbow Trout

(Nov 17) Fishing has been good at Boulger Reservoir. This waterbody was most recently stocked on Aug. 14 with more than 500 rainbow trout averaging over 11 inches long. Try using night crawlers or PowerBait for catching these. Boulger Reservoir may soon freeze over, so use caution.

Regulations

Chalk Creek

Cutthroat Trout, Rainbow Trout

No recent reports.

Clear Creek

(Nov 17) Bonneville cutthroat trout are abundant throughout Clear Creek and its tributaries. Anglers report good to excellent fishing with nymphs and small streamers.

Cleveland Reservoir

Rainbow Trout

(Nov 17) The water level is low at Cleveland Reservoir, but anglers are still having success catching trout, both from the shore and out on the water. Fly anglers have been using medium- and fast-sinking line with size 6 and 8 bead-headed lures. These lures include woolly buggers in brown/orange, brown or green leeches, and black/green soft hackle flies. Anglers have also had a lot of success catching rainbow trout while trolling with pop gear or bait fishing from shore. The water level at Cleveland Reservoir is being drawn down for irrigation needs, so the DWR has raised the daily bag limit and possession limit to eight trout at this waterbody until Jan. 1, 2019. Cleveland Reservoir may soon freeze over, so use caution.

Access to Duck Fork Reservoir may be limited due to recent snowfall.

(Nov 17) Huntington Reservoir is about 17 percent full, and 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. Huntington Reservoir may soon freeze over, so use caution here.
