Emergency changes

Steinaker Reservoir (Uintah County): No daily bag limit for any species:

This change is effective January 1, 2018 and will remain in effect until December 31, 2018. The Bureau of Reclamation will be drawing down Steinaker Reservoir in 2018 in preparation for dam repair work. The drawdown will take the reservoir past dead pool and a complete fish kill is expected. It will be restocked with bluegill, rainbow trout, and brown trout upon refilling and largemouth bass the year after refilling begins. All other rules established in the 2018 Utah Fishing Guidebook remain in effect.
