Utah Lake

Fishing report

  • Rating: Slow
  • Conditions: With the duck hunt under way, fishing is best away from grassy shorelines. Water levels are extremely low, so you may want to check with the State Parks office or DWR office before launching. Try using raw chicken for catfish. Walleye fishing is slow, but they are still biting this time of year.
