Provo River

Brook Trout, Brown Trout, Cutthroat Trout, Rainbow Trout, Walleye

(Nov 2) Lower: Anglers have been catching 14- to 18-inch brown trout and 16-inch rainbows. Brown trout are spawning, and males and females can be seen grouped together near spawning nests or redds. Gravel sites free of debris and/or vegetation are indicators of redds so be please be cautious when nearing these sites as disturbances can damage the eggs. The spawn is an excellent time to use streamers, trigger combinations, and egg patterns don't limit yourself so keep a variety of colors on hand to use. Flows are normal for this time of year and the water conditions are clear. Watch for BWO hatches midday, caddis hatches in the early afternoon and evening, midge hatches in the morning, and there is an occasional PMD hatch throughout the day. Try using try using BWO, zebra midges, caddis larvae and pupae, and nymphs.

Middle: The Middle Provo River is fishing similar to the Lower Provo River and is fishing well in the afternoon to early evening. Watch for small BWO hatches in the mid-morning and caddis hatches in the afternoon. Brown trout are very active, but please be cautious of spawning beds. Try using streamers, egg patterns, midges, caddis larvae and pupae. For those spin casting try using Blue Fox Vibrax spinners or Mepps Aglia spinners.

Regulations

Starvation Reservoir

Brown Trout, Crayfish, Smouthmouth Bass, Walleye

FISH CONSUMPTION ADVISORY

(Nov 11) Fishing varies day to day, but has slowed down considerably for perch, bass and walleye. Anglers report fair fishing in the Rabbit Gulch area using woolly buggers and sparkle buggers on sinking fly lines. Rainbow trout will become more active as the water temperature continues to cool down. Anglers report observing and catching spawning kokanee salmon in the lake (kokanee must be released from Sept. 10 through Nov. 30). Fly anglers are having success with black woolly buggers, tan/green/pearl soft hackle, and a black/orange woolly bugger. The water temperature is hovering around 48 degrees and the visibility in the water is about six feet. The reservoir is 82 percent full. Biologists are encouraging anglers to harvest their limits of walleye from 10- to 14-inch to help thin out the walleye population and to help the yellow perch population. If you catch crappie, consider voluntarily releasing them so the population can become established.

(Oct 26) The water temperature has been consistently around 52-55 degrees F and the visibility in the water was about five feet because of algae in the water column. The reservoir level is at 5,702 feet (82 percent full) and rising. Walleye and kokanee fishing has continued to be great! Try trolling a pink mini squid with a very silver dodger scented with garlic for best results. This is the time walleye stock up for the winter months and tend to feed heavily on smaller forage fish and even bigger rainbow trout. Biologists are encouraging anglers to harvest their limits of 10- to 14-inch walleye to thin out the walleye population and to help out the yellow perch population. Rainbow trout will become more active as the water temperature continues to cool down. Anglers have reported observing and catching spawning kokanee salmon in the lake (kokanee must be released from Sept. 10 through Nov. 30). Try fishing from 15 to 24 feet of water, tip jig heads with worms or Rapalas. Crayfish jigs are also working well. The walleye are very aggressive and biting on almost anything you cast at them. For trout, try using a curly tail grub. Other anglers have reported success using swim bait and rainbow trout-colored crankbait. Fly anglers were having success with size 6 to 8 bead head leeches and buggers in olive, black/orange, and purple. The water temperature is around 67 degrees F and the visibility of the water is about six or seven feet. Two-hundred and fifty crappie were moved by DWR biologists from Pineview and stocked into Starvation to establish a new population of forage fish. If you catch crappie, consider voluntarily releasing them so the population can become established.

Regulations

(Nov 2) Anglers are catching white bass and channel catfish. For white bass, try using a neon-colored curly tail grub or neon colored jighead tipped with a nightcrawler, and retrieve your lure at a medium speed. Reports indicate good white bass fishing at Utah Lake State Park and Lindon Harbor. For channel catfish try using Magic Bait Catfish Bait, chicken livers incased in nylons, or nightcrawlers.

(Nov 10) Fishing has been fair. As water temperature cools down, try downsizing your baits and slowing down your retrieve.

(Nov 3) The water temperature is in the low 50s and fishing is slow to fair. As water temperatures at Willard cool down, try downsizing your baits and slowing down your retrieve. One angler reports landing a decent-sized crappie on a slip bobber rig.
