Bountiful Lake

Fishing report

  • Rating: Fair
  • Conditions: The pond was recently stocked with 1,000 nine-inch rainbow trout. There's a lot of angling pressure in the evenings and into the night, especially on the weekends, when people are out late to catch catfish. Any stinky, commercially bought or home-prepared bait should work well. Catfish typically cruise the bottom, so it's best to fish on — or just off — the bottom of the lake. Sometimes catfish have been known to take PowerBait as well. Bluegill fishing is still very good around the eastern shore of the pond. Typically, the larger bluegill and green sunfish will bite on larger pieces of worm, while the smaller fish bite the smaller pieces of worm. Use enough worm to at least cover up the hook. The Woods Cross Police Department youth fishing club is underway and meets on Friday nights from 5:30–7 p.m.
