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)

(Jun 9) Anglers report decent fishing below the spillway. Try using PowerBait or a worm.

(Jun 4) The water at Causey is high, murky and cold. Anglers reported very slow fishing.

(May 26) The water at Causey is murky. One angler who fished the inlet reported no bites at all.

Regulations

Duck Fork Reservoir

Colorado River Cutthroat Trout, Tiger Trout (hybrid)

(Jun 9) The road to the reservoir was still closed on June 6. The gate will likely open soon. Check with the Manti-La Sal National Forest for road updates.

Regulations

East Canyon Reservoir

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

(Jun 9) The water is warming up quickly. Anglers report fair to good fishing for trout and bass. One angler caught a few nice-sized trout before 8 a.m., but anglers fishing later in the day varied in their success. Try using a black woolly bugger, garlic PowerBait or pop gear with a worm.

(Jun 4) Fishing is good to hot at East Canyon this week for both rainbow trout and smallmouth bass. Anglers reported catching their limit within an hour or two, primarily by trolling. Anglers report catching fish only 20-30 feet from shore.

(May 26) The reservoir is full and water is flowing through the spillway. One angler reported good fishing this week. Recently, Rapalas and PowerBait (garlic and corn) have been effective.

Forsyth Reservoir

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

STOP WHIRLING DISEASE

(May 26) There are no recent reports, but the reservoir is full.

Huntington Reservoir

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

(Jun 9) The reservoir is now open. Lots of tiger trout were found during recent gill net surveys. Some of these trout appear to be eating worms off the bottom, so small night crawlers might work well.

Regulations

Hyrum Reservoir

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

STOP WHIRLING DISEASE

(Jun 9) The state park reports slow fishing at Hyrum this week. To increase your chances of success, fish early in the morning or late in the evening.

(Jun 4) The reservoir is full and the water temperature is in the low 60s. The boat dock within Hyrum State Park has been set up. The state park reports decent fishing for trout.

(May 26) The reservoir is almost full and the water temperature is approximately 60 degrees. The state park reports good fishing for perch and trout. For a greater chance of success, try fishing early in the morning or late in the evening. PowerBait and worms are a safe bet if you're fishing from shore, or Rapalas if you're trolling.

Joe's Valley Reservoir

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

FISH CONSUMPTION ADVISORY

(Jun 9) Try using 1/4-ounce jig heads, with white plastic tubes or chub meat, to catch cutthroat trout, tiger trout and splake. As chubs move into the shallows to spawn, chub meat will become an especially effective bait for these large predatory fish.

(May 27) Try using 1/4-ounce jig heads, with white plastic tubes or chub meat, to catch cutthroat trout, tiger trout and splake. As chubs move into the shallows to spawn, chub meat will become an especially effective bait for these large predatory fish.

Regulations

Mill Meadow Reservoir

Brake (hybrid), Brownbows (hybrid), Perch, Rainbow, Splake (hybrid), Tiger Musky (hybrid), Tiger Trout (hybrid)

STOP WHIRLING DISEASE

(May 26) The reservoir is full. Good fly fishing reported at the inlets with leech patterns. Also try flashy spinners and lures.

Regulations

Monroe Mountain Lakes

Rainbow Trout, Tiger Trout (hybrid)

(May 26) The Box Creek reservoirs are accessible and rainbow trout have been stocked. Glenwood Pond is accessible and rainbow trout have been stocked.

Palisade Reservoir

Cutthroat Trout, Rainbow Trout, Tiger Trout (hybrid)

(Jun 4) Anglers have been catching rainbows, cutthroats and tigers. For rainbows and cutthroats, traditional methods work well. For tigers, try using spinnerbaits, spoons or minnow-imitating lures.

(May 26) Anglers have been catching 12- to 14-inch tigers and 14- to 16-inch rainbows. They've found great success while fishing near the dam. Try using garlic PowerBait, salmon eggs under a bubble, Gitzit Bait Savers and Trout Magnets.

Panguitch Lake

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

(May 26) A recent netting survey found good numbers of all trout species and a lot of quality-sized fish. Rainbow trout are feeding heavily on midge larvae, while tiger and cutthroat trout are feeding on freshwater shrimp. Trolling is starting to produce good results for rainbow trout and medium-sized cutthroat trout. Power Bait is producing good fishing for small- and medium-sized rainbows from the shore or a boat. Fly anglers can do well with nymphs, leeches and wooly buggers. For bigger fish, cast bigger flies. If you really want to get into bigger fish, try fishing cut bait (chub, sucker, shiners or anchovies) as well as tube jigs and swimbaits tipped with cut bait. White is usually the best color for jigs and swimbaits, though darker colors (olive green, pepper, smoke, etc.) have also been producing. Most of the fish you'll catch with these methods will be slot-sized cutthroat and tiger trout that must be released, though you may catch a few large rainbows and slot busters. If you're still-fishing with cut bait, use large single hooks and fish actively. Hole the pole in your hand or watch it closely, so you can set the hook as soon as the fish picks up the bait. If the fish does swallow the hook, just cut the line rather than try to pull the hook out.

Regulations

Rockport Reservoir

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

STOP WHIRLING DISEASE

(Jun 9) Anglers report excellent fishing for smallmouth bass and rainbow trout, even from shore. For rainbow trout, use worms, bright marshmallows or PowerBait. If you're shore fishing, try focusing on the east side of the reservoir or over by the dam. If you're trolling, you may have the most success with spoons and Rapalas

(Jun 4) Anglers report that the shore fishing at Rockport has really picked up compared to previous weeks, with most anglers catching decent-sized rainbows using garlic, corn or lemon twist PowerBait. If you have a fly rod, one angler reports that fly fishing was also excellent. Anglers are recommending people fish from shore on the eastern side of the reservoir, or over by the dam. If you're trolling, firetiger was the hot color pattern this week.

(May 26) Fishing by boat is excellent and anglers reported catching their limit in no time. Successful anglers were trolling with pop gear and a worm. However, fishing from shore is fair. Try using garlic or corn PowerBait.

Regulations

Uinta Lakes

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

(Jun 9) Please use extreme caution if you're attempting to access waters in the Uinta Mountains. Warm temperatures have increased runoff significantly, and the rivers are reportedly twice their volume compared to last week. Expect murky and fast-running rivers.

(Jun 4) Snow still remains in the higher elevations. Based on current conditions, we anticipate that SR-150 (Mirror Lake Highway) will not be snow-free until a few more weeks have passed. The North Slope streams are still running high and fast, but the water is clearer than in previous weeks. Please use caution if attempting to access waters in the Uinta Mountains.

(May 26) A large amount of snow still remains above Sulfur Springs Campground. Based on current conditions, we anticipate that SR-150 (Mirror Lake Highway) will not be snow-free until middle or late June. The North Slope streams are high but not as high as last week, with the exception of the East Fork Bear River which is carving new channels in some places. Please use caution if attempting to access waters in the Uinta Mountains.

Regulations

Willow Lake

Rainbow Trout, Tiger Trout (hybrid)

(Jun 9) The lake is now open and accessible, but roads may be muddy or otherwise hazardous. Use caution when traveling up Ferron Canyon.
