Tibble Fork Reservoir

Fishing report

  • Rating: Fair
  • Conditions: At Tibble Fork, try using spinners or nightcrawlers for the best results. Trout are slow to bite, but are feeding actively in the morning and late evening. For a chance to catch some nice-sized grayling, try fishing Silver Lake above Silver Lake Flat reservoir. It's about a 1-hour and 15-minute hike. Silver Lake Flat Reservoir is almost completely drained so the dam can be repaired. The daily bag and possession limit of Silver Lake Flat Reservoir only has been increased to 8 fish from now until January 1, 2016.
