Fishing report

  • Conditions: Anglers are catching white bass off the docks, but fishing has been slow. Fish are actively feeding — especially catfish. Try using smaller swimbaits or shadraps for walleye. You may also want to try using stainless steel leader to avoid a severed line if you catch any pike. For catfish, try using chicken liver or worms on the bottom.

    Northern pike have been seen and caught in the Hobble Creek tributary, west of I-15. If you catch any northern pike of any size in Utah Lake and its tributaries, please bring the pike to the DWR office in Springville, at 1115 N Main Street, or to the Utah Lake State Park office off of Center Street. The lake is 65 percent full.
