Holmes Creek Reservoir

Fishing report

  • Rating: Hot
  • Conditions: Anglers are catching trout along the east bank from the shore and float tubes. Try using worms or PowerBait just off the bottom. The trout are being very aggressive, and some anglers are having success using Lil' Jakes lures and Fire Tiger Rapalas. The water is rising, and there is limited shore access along the east and west banks. Please respect this privately-owned pond and remember to obtain your Walk-in Access authorization number. You can also see a map of other Walk-in Access areas across Utah.

    Nearby Andy Adams Reservoir is now open, and the water is completely ice free. Anglers report good fishing. They are using worms and PowerBait suspended from a bobber. Many thanks to Kevin Hammer for the report!
