Tibble Fork Reservoir

Fishing report

  • Rating: Fair
  • Conditions: Effective immediately: The daily limit at Tibble Fork has been increased to eight fish. This change will remain in effect through December 31, 2015. The reservoir will be drained as early as April 1, 2016 to make repairs. Limits have been increased to allow anglers to harvest fish that would otherwise be lost.

    The Alpine Loop is now closed for travel. Be aware of changing weather conditions in the canyon throughout the week. Fish are actively feeding, especially on dry flies or on dropper flies under a bubble. Try using spinners and salmon eggs this time of year. It's a great time to catch some of the spawning browns. The road to Silver Lake Flat Reservoir was still open as of November 13, but the reservoir is still drained for repairs.
