Most anglers report slow fishing, though a few have had better success. On Feb. 24 and 25, conservation officers talked to 200 anglers at the reservoir. Most of the anglers had caught either few or no fish. The one party of anglers that had done well said they were using PowerBait and nightcrawlers in 10 feet of water.
During the last week in February, Carl Wood of Price reported good fishing in 10 feet of water using a white jig and a piece of nightcrawler. His rainbow trout averaged 12 inches and the cutthroat trout averaged 14 inches. He didn't catch any tiger trout.
