Provo River

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

(Jan 6) Anglers have been catching 12- to 16-inch browns. Early January tends to be the slowest time of year for the river. The brown trout have completed their spawn and are not as active or aggressive, and there are no significant hatches occurring. Fish tend to reside in deeper, slower moving pockets so focus on these areas. Try using midges, sow bugs, and hares ears.

(Dec 31) Anglers have been catching 12- to 20-inch brown trout and fishing has been great throughout the day, but best in the mid-afternoon. The brown trout spawn has neared its end, and browns are becoming less active. Try using black, red, or olive zebra midges, baetis fly patterns, sow bugs, and black or cream midges. Remember that lower flow push fish into deeper pockets so focus on these areas mid-morning to later afternoon.

Regulations

Starvation Reservoir

Brown Trout, Crayfish, Smouthmouth Bass, Walleye

FISH CONSUMPTION ADVISORY

(Jan 6) As of Jan. 3, the southern bay is about 1/3 covered with ice. The reservoir temperature is hovering around 37 degrees F and is sitting at 90 percent full and continuing to rise. Fly anglers are reporting very slow success with size 6-8 woolly buggers. Kokanee fishing reopened statewide on Dec. 1. Biologists are encouraging anglers to harvest their limits of 10- to 14-inch walleye to help thin out the walleye population and to help the yellow perch population. If you catch crappy, consider voluntarily releasing them to help establish the population.
