Bountiful Lake

Fishing report

  • Rating: Good
  • Conditions: Fishing at Bountiful Lake is starting to pick up. Anglers continue to have good success catching bluegill and green sunfish all along the east shore — the occasional bass and rainbow trout are biting too. During the Woods Cross PD fishing club this last week, Daxx of Woods Cross caught a nice bass on a plain worm. He was fishing near the fishing pier on the east side. Other anglers report good fishing using a jig head with a plastic Curly Tailed grub tipped with a piece of worm. Try fishing it on the bottom or under a bobber with a slow to medium retrieval (for trout, bass and bluegill). The pond recently stocked with 1,000 nine-inch rainbow trout.
