Fishing report

  • Rating: Fair
  • Conditions: There aren't many anglers fishing the reservoir right now. We've received some reports of ice in the shallows. You'll likely find fair fishing for trout during the day, and then the action will slow in the evening hours. There are special catch-and-release regulations at the reservoir. You must use flies and lures only — bait is not allowed. See the Utah Fishing Guidebook for details.
