Northeastern Utah Region Fish Report

Information compiled by Tonya Kieffer

Cleaning fish: Biologists now believe the disposal of fish parts, especially the head and skeleton, is one of the primary reasons whirling disease has spread to new waters. To avoid moving whirling disease and other undesired organisms, you should clean fish at home and send the parts to a landfill. If that isn't possible, please clean the fish and bury the parts at least 100 yards away from the water's edge. Do not move fish or fish parts from one water to another.\

Big Sandwash Reservoir

Unstable ice

The reservoir was capped with ice as of yesterday. Some areas seemed solid, but please use caution and check the thickness of the ice before venturing out. We haven't received any recent reports from anglers. (01-08-18)

Brough Reservoir

Unstable ice

The reservoir has four to five inches of safe ice by the dam. One group of anglers reported catching two rainbows with a white squid. Several other anglers were catching fish with jigs and nightcrawlers. Water levels are extremely low. Last year, regulations changed at the reservoir, and you are no longer restricted to artificial fly use only. Utah's regular statewide regulations now apply to fishing at Brough. Please see the Utah Fishing Guidebook for details. (01-08-18)

Cottonwood Reservoir

Unstable ice

The reservoir currently has four inches of fishable ice with possible open-water spots in the middle. Most of the tiger muskies in Cottonwood have not yet reached 40 inches in length, so please remember to use recommended catch-and-release techniques. (01-08-18)

Currant Creek Reservoir

Unstable ice

Our biologists reported that fishing was slow this past weekend, but success improved in the afternoon. Anglers reported catching rainbow trout near the dam. There is open water in the middle of the reservoir, but all access points have good ice. There are about 10 inches of ice by the dam and about six inches on the north side. Rainbow trout are biting on green tube jigs tipped with mealworms or wax worms. Please use extreme caution and check the thickness of the ice before venturing out. (01-08-18)
