The Division offered a family fishing day during the Carbon County Fair on Aug. 9. Fishing was good using nightcrawlers and chartreuse or rainbow PowerBait. According to a few anglers, garlic flavor improved the catch rate. Most anglers floated their bait just off the bottom. A few used a bobber and fished under the surface. Both methods were successful. 750 3-inch largemouth bass were stocked last week, and the pond will be restocked before Labor Day.

The following reports were provided by conservation officer TJ Robertson.

Dark Canyon Lake: Fishing has ranged from slow to fair. Try using worms and salmon eggs. PowerBait has not been effective.

Kens Lake: Fishing has slowed for trout, but has picked up for bass. You can catch bass using small tube jigs or spinners near the inlet or on the northeast side.

Medicine Lake: Fishing is fair to good using spinners or baits. There haven't been many anglers fishing the lake.
