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)

(Jul 14) One group of anglers reports catching several rainbow trout and kokanee from the shore using worms and spinners. Another angler only caught rainbow trout. To avoid the crowds, try fishing in the early morning.

(Jul 6) While we have not received any reports from anglers at Causey this week, the reservoir was recently stocked with over 30,000 tiger trout.

(Jun 30) Fishing is slow at Causey. One reporting angler who fished all morning caught nothing. Don't lose hope, though! The reservoir was stocked on June 26 with over 30,000 tiger trout.

(Jun 22) The water at Causey is a dark, almost opaque brown, and the water is flowing over the spillway. One angler reports no bites even after using many different types of tackle. If you still want to try your luck this week, anglers recommend fishing the inlet.

Duck Fork Reservoir

Colorado River Cutthroat Trout, Tiger Trout (hybrid)

No recent reports.

Regulations

East Canyon Reservoir

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

(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.

Hyrum Reservoir

Bluegill, Largemouth Bass, Rainbow Trout, Tiger Trout (hybrid), Yellow Perch

STOP WHIRLING DISEASE

(Jul 14) While trout fishing has been very slow, the state park reports that the bass bite is starting to pick up. Anglers are beginning to have more success throwing plastics.

(Jul 6) The reservoir is full and the water temperature is approximately 70 degrees. For a greater chance of success, be sure to arrive early in the day or late in the evening. From shore, worms and PowerBait are a safe bet. Trolling is a tried-and-true way to catch fish at Hyrum by boat.

(Jun 30) The reservoir is full and the water temperature is approximately 70 degrees. Trout were stocked on June 19.

(Jun 22) Fishing has recently been slow to fair at Hyrum. Most anglers who were successful fished in the early mornings or late evenings. Try slowing down your trolling speed.

(Jun 22) The Box Creek reservoirs and north-end lakes have been stocked with catchable-sized rainbow trout and should provide fair to good fishing. Manning Meadow Reservoir is closed to fishing until July 8.

Palisade Reservoir

Cutthroat Trout, Rainbow Trout, Tiger Trout (hybrid)

(Jul 14) Anglers are catching rainbows but report slow fishing overall. Traditional methods work well, but you can also try spinners, spoons and minnow-imitating lures.

(Jun 29) Anglers have been catching rainbows, tigers and cutthroats. Traditional methods work well, but you can also try using spinners and spoons.

(Jun 22) Anglers have been catching 14- to 16-inch rainbows. Try using spinnerbaits, a silver or gold Jake's Spin-A-Lure, salmon eggs under a bobber, PowerBait or nightcrawlers.

Panguitch Lake

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

(Jul 7) Panguitch Lake is open again, thanks to fire crews containing the southern edge of the Brian Head Fire. Highway 143 is open from Parowan to Panguitch, but you may experience delays west of Panguitch Lake while fire crews clean up safety hazards. All roads north of Panguitch Lake are still closed. Trout have moved to deeper water due to warm temperatures, so fishing from boats is best now. Many anglers are bait fishing from boats and doing well for rainbow trout. You can also troll lures and flies and catch plenty of fish.

(Jul 5) Guy J Hargreaves of Panguitch Lake fished with a partner and caught 4 rainbows. He reports: Please be advised that Panguitch Lake is OPEN for fishing and the roads to Panguitch Lake are no longer blocked. Reports that the lake is currently closed and fires blocking roads are false. Panguitch Lake Adventure Resort is also now open for boat rentals.

(Jun 22) Access to Panguitch Lake is closed indefinitely due to the advance of the Brian Head Fire.

Regulations

Rockport Reservoir

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

STOP WHIRLING DISEASE

(Jul 14) Fishing for smallmouths has been quite good. Anglers recommend the southwest side of the reservoir for targeting smallmouth bass.

(Jul 6) According to reporting anglers, fishing at Rockport was fair to good. A couple groups of anglers caught some nice-sized rainbow trout. Another angler reported catching smallmouth bass.

(Jun 30) One angler reports decent fishing for smallmouth bass by suspending plastics about four feet below a bobber on a slow retrieve that runs parallel to shore. Another group of anglers caught several brown trout, then started catching bass around mid-morning.

(Jun 22) Anglers report slow to fair fishing this week. Try slowing down your trolling speed. Anglers who were successful reported fishing on the west side of the reservoir. Anglers recommend green-colored bait or lures, gold Flatfish, worms, Jake's lures, or pop gear.

Regulations

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.
