Birch Creek Reservoir

Cutthroat Trout, Rainbow Trout, Tiger Trout (hybrid)

No recent reports.

Causey Reservoir

Cutthroat Trout, Kokanee Salmon, Rainbow Trout, Splake (hybrid), Tiger Trout (hybrid)

(Sep 21) DWR Aquatics biologists have received reports that after a late start, the kokanee are now running. There are thousands of spawners at Causey right now. We expect the spawning run to last at least another two to three weeks.

Regulations

Duck Fork Reservoir

Colorado River Cutthroat Trout, Tiger Trout (hybrid)

(Sep 16) Duck Fork Reservoir was stocked with 1,500 tiger trout on Aug. 18. Try using black-and-orange beadhead woolly buggers or crystal buggers in brown, green and pearl combinations. Leech patterns may also work well.

(Sep 1) Anglers fishing in the mornings are catching a few tiger trout and a lot of cutthroat trout between 11 and 17 inches long. A bead head black/copper soft hackle fly, on a size 6 hook, has produced the best. The temperature at the reservoir is still somewhat high, but fishing may pick up as temperatures start to drop. On Aug. 18, the reservoir received 1,500 tiger trout that averaged five inches long. These fish will likely reach a catchable size going into fall and winter.

Regulations

East Canyon Reservoir

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

(Sep 21) The water temperature is approximately 65 degrees. Fishing was good this week for wipers and rainbow trout. One angler reported good success on the south end of the reservoir between 6:30 a.m. and 8:00 a.m. while trolling using pop gear with a worm. They also said that they tried the east side of the reservoir and didn't have any bites. Shore anglers recommended using PowerBait or a classic worm-and-bobber setup near the dam.

(Sep 14) Fishing is still fair at East Canyon. Successful anglers are mostly pulling in rainbow trout. Try using orange, green or rainbow PowerBait if you're fishing from shore. Spoons and pop gear with a worm have also worked well.

(Sep 9) Fishing is currently fair, primarily for rainbow trout. Try using orange, green or rainbow PowerBait if you're fishing from shore. A spoon or popgear with a worm has also worked well.

(Sep 1) Fishing has slowed down, according to recent reports. Successful anglers are mostly pulling in rainbow trout. Try using orange PowerBait, spoons or pop gear with a worm.

Forsyth Reservoir

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

STOP WHIRLING DISEASE

(Sep 14) Good success reported for nice tiger trout casting streamers from a boat or tube, as wells as fishing night crawlers from shore.

Huntington Reservoir

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

(Sep 16) Anglers are catching quite a few tiger trout in the mornings. Some anglers have had success using crystal bugger flies in brown, green and pearl color combinations, or black-and-orange beadhead woolly buggers. Most of the fish have been in 15 to 30 feet of water, so fishing has been best from a boat or tube. Trout have ranged from 13 to 17 inches long.

(Sep 1) Fishing from a tube or a boat has been faster than fishing from shore. Anglers using crystal buggers, woolly buggers and leeches are catching tiger trout in 20 to 35 feet of water. Anglers should continue encountering lots of hungry tiger trout here.

(Sep 14) Fishing for rainbow trout and perch is fair to good. Worms, spinners and Rapalas worked well, according to anglers. Shore fishers reported that PowerBait, especially garlic and peach, did well. We did not receive any reports on the quality of the smallmouth bass bite, but recently bass fishing has been good as well.

(Sep 9) Fishing for rainbow trout and perch is fair to good. Worms, spinners and Rapalas have worked well, according to anglers. One group of anglers caught several perch and smallmouth bass on the south end of the reservoir. Shore anglers recommend PowerBait especially the peach color.

(Sep 1) According to anglers, the bite for rainbow trout and perch is still good. Try a dropshot with a worm near the rocks if you're targeting bass. For perch, anglers report that a simple worm will often do the trick.

Regulations

Uinta Lakes

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

(Sep 21) Anglers report good fishing for rainbow trout and tiger trout this week. In addition, several lakes in the Uintas were recently stocked with arctic grayling. Smith-Morehouse Reservoir in particular was stocked with over 22,000 grayling on September 19. If you don't have flies, try using a spinner, fly and bubble, worm under a bobber, worm floated off the bottom with a mini marshmallow or PowerBait at many of the lakes off Mirror Lake Highway such as Teapot Lake. However, be sure to check the weather conditions before you head up to the Uintas it snowed heavily on September 15!

(Sep 14) Anglers report fair to good fishing for tiger trout and rainbow trout. The waters throughout the Uintas have produced very well this summer, but this week the fishing has slowed down according to anglers. Try using a spinner, fly and bubble, worm under a bobber, worm floated off the bottom with a mini marshmallow or PowerBait.

(Sep 9) Anglers report good to hot fishing for tiger, cutthroat, brook and rainbow trout. The waters throughout the Uintas have produced very well this summer. Overall, spinners like Joe's Flies did well, but you also could find great success from the shore if you're using a fly and bubble, a worm under a bobber, a worm floated off the bottom with a mini marshmallow, or PowerBait. If you're looking to beat the crowds, try venturing further away from Mirror Lake Highway where the small stream fishing has been excellent. Several lakes in the Uintas were stocked last week.

(Sep 1) Anglers report good to hot fishing for tiger trout, cutthroat trout, brook trout and rainbow trout this week. The waters throughout the Uintas have produced very well this summer, but several anglers this week reported from specific areas such as Pass Lake, Trial Lake and Butterfly Lake. One angler reported catching huge numbers of fish at Washington Lake. Spinners (such as Joe's Flies) did well, but you also could find great success using a fly and bubble, a worm under a bobber, a worm floated off the bottom with a mini marshmallow, or PowerBait. If you're trying to beat the crowds, venture away from Mirror Lake Highway, where the fishing is still good. If you're using flies, try a black beadhead leech.
