Jordanelle Reservoir

Fishing report

  • Rating: Good
  • Conditions: This week, 60,000 rainbow trout were stocked into the reservoir. The ramp at Rock Cliff is out of the water and fish-cleaning stations are now closed. Boaters are trolling shad-colored plastics, woolly buggers and worms, and they're catching bass, perch and trout during the early-morning to mid-morning hours. Fish have been feeding closer to the surface. Smallmouth bass fishing has been steady. Try using white tub jigs and rattletraps. The reservoir is currently holding at 59 percent full, and water temperatures in the low 50s. Prepare for cold weather before you head out.
