Scofield Reservoir

Fishing report

  • Rating: Slow
  • Conditions: Fishing is slow. Some anglers report catching as many chubs as trout, while others report that the catch depends on your location. In general, most of the trout will be nine to 14 inches with a smaller number inside the slot limit. A late fall gillnetting survey found fish that exceed the slot limit — including several six- to seven-pound cutthroat — but they are a small minority of the reservoir's fish population.
