Bear Lake

Fishing is fair. For updates, call the Bear Lake recorded message at 435-946-8501.

Birch Creek Reservoir

Fishing is slow. Many anglers report that they’re not catching any fish, though some shore anglers have caught cutthroat trout up to 16 inches using worms. You may find more success at nearby Woodruff Creek Reservoir. The reservoir is currently full. The Monte Cristo Road is open.

Blacksmith Fork River

The water conditions were very good on May 29. Salmon-flies have started to hatch further up the canyon. Fly anglers report fair fishing using Irresistible Adams and Parachute Adams flies. Anglers report catching 9- to 16-inch brown trout.

Causey Reservoir

Fishing is slow. To check the reservoir’s current water level, visit the Natural Resource Conservation Service website.

Cutler Reservoir & Marsh

Anglers report good fishing for catfish, which range in size from small to almost two feet long. Try using traditional baits.

East Canyon Reservoir & State Park

Fishing is good for smallmouth bass and trout. Shore anglers are catching plenty of rainbow trout using PowerBait or worms, and plenty of bass using worms and lures. Anglers who are trolling have catch their limit of rainbow trout up to 16 inches in length.

Echo Reservoir

Shore fishing was slow last weekend for trout. Try fishing using PowerBait early and late in the day. The water temperature is rising and bass fishing is picking up.

Holmes Creek Reservoir

Fishing has picked up for small trout and bass. You can now fish from small, non-motorized boats. The boat launch, though, is only for members of a water skiing club that has access to the ramp. You’ll need to hand launch your canoe, kayak or float tube. On nearby Andy Adams, shore fishing is very good for rainbow trout. Try using inline spinners or wobblers. A few anglers report good fishing for 8- to 12-inch rainbow trout, and some up to 18 inches, using chartreuse suspended off the bottom with a bubble bobber.

Hyrum Reservoir & State Park

Fishing success has started to get a little spotty, so try different areas if the action slows down. You can find big fish at Hyrum. To check the reservoir’s current water level, visit the Natural Resource Conservation Service website.

Logan River

There are no recent fishing reports, but fishing should be fair.

Lost Creek Reservoir

Fishing is slow. Trolling is currently the most effective fishing method. Lost Creek has special regulations. Read the Utah Fishing Guidebook for details.

Mantua Reservoir

Anglers are catching good numbers of keeper bluegill. Fly anglers should try fishing in the morning and evening when the winds are down.

Ogden River

Anglers report seeing salmonfly adults on the river during the week of May 26. The hatch is short-lived, but great fun while it’s on.

Pineview Reservoir

Anglers reporting great fishing for tiger muskie, smallmouth bass and black bullheads. Muskie and bass anglers should try using crappie imitations, and bullhead anglers should try using nightcrawlers. Anglers, who hadn’t caught fish in many years, report catching crappie, black bullheads and yellow perch from the shore. To check the reservoir’s current water level, visit the Natural Resource Conservation Service website.

Porcupine Reservoir

Fishing is slow. To check the reservoir’s current water level, visit the Natural Resource Conservation Service website.

Rockport Reservoir

Weber River

Anglers report good fishing for brown trout using lures. Fly anglers have had success using nymphs, streamers or emergers. The water is running high. All cutthroat trout, or trout with cutthroat markings, must be immediately released from the Great Salt Lake to Echo Reservoir dam.

Willard Bay Reservoir

Anglers report fair fishing for smallmouth bass and crappie. The south marina is open, and you can launch a boat. The north half of the reservoir is closed and marked with bouys. The closed area is being patrolled. As of May 29, there is no definitive opening date for the north section of the reservoir.
