Scofield Reservoir

Fishing report

  • Rating: Slow
  • Conditions: Conservation officer TJ Robertson reports slow fishing. Most of the catch consists of stocked cutthroat trout that average 10 to 12 inches in length. The best fishing is in the dam cove or the southern-most part of the east side. Fishing can be good at the angler access on the west side too. You can catch the bigger fish with chub meat or worms, although Mike Ault — who conducts weekly creel surveys — says that he sees very little difference in fishing success regardless of the bait.
