Fishing report

  • Rating: Good
  • Conditions: There were not any anglers out this past week. The week before, anglers reported good fishing using pop gear and rainbow-colored lures. Shore anglers recommended rainbow PowerBait or a worm and marshmallow combination. There is no ice yet. The wedge dock will stay in the water until the lake freezes. The first leg of Wasatch Back Quad-fishalon will be at East Canyon on January 31. The Quad-fishalon is four ice fishing tournaments at four separate reservoirs. You can choose to enter one or all. Cabela's is sponsoring the event and will award an ultimate ice fishing package worth thousands of dollars.
