Bear Lake


The lake's water temperature is in the high 40s to low 50s. Be sure to check the State Park's website for up-to-date information on launch ramp closures. Fishing at Bear Lake has been fair using both trolling and jigging methods. If you're trolling, try fishing in front of the State Park Marina in approximately 20 feet of water or off of the Rockpile in 40 to 60 feet of water using spoons or minnow lures. The Rockpile could also be a good place to jig. Try using tube jigs or swimbaits in various colors in 1/2 to one ounce sizes and 3 to six inches long. You can tip your lure with cisco/sucker/carp meat for better luck. (11-03-17)

Blacksmith Fork River


While we did not receive any angler reports this week, fishing on the Blacksmith Fork has recently been fair to good for brown trout. (11-03-17)

Bountiful Lake


Fishing at Bountiful has been fair to good. Traditional methods, such as fishing a worm off the bottom or using a worm under a bobber, are a good bet. (11-03-17)

Causey Reservoir


Anglers report slow fishing at Causey Reservoir. (11-03-17)

East Canyon Reservoir & State Park


On October 31, this water was stocked with over 23,000 rainbow trout. One angler reports catching a few decent-sized rainbow trout on the south and west sides of the reservoir using pop gear tipped with a worm. (11-03-17)

Echo Reservoir


The algal bloom warning for this water has been canceled. All of the ramps are closed and boats can't be launched. One shore angler reported a steady bite by the dam using a golden Jake's lure. (11-03-17)

Farmington Pond


Fishing is fair to good for rainbow trout at Farmington Pond. Try using a spinner, floating a worm off the bottom, or using a traditional worm-and-bobber rig. (11-03-17)

Holmes Creek Reservoir


Fishing has been fair to good at Holmes for rainbow trout. Try using worms. (11-03-17)

Hyrum Reservoir & State Park


One angler reports having a blast catching large numbers of perch by jigging at the reservoir this week. They fished about two feet off of the bottom and reported a steady catch all day long. They also caught a couple bass. (11-03-17)

Jensen Nature Park Pond


Anglers have reported fair to good fishing at Jensen Pond recently. Traditional methods such as fishing a worm off the bottom or using a worm under a bobber are a good bet. (11-03-17)

Kaysville Ponds


Anglers report decent fishing for rainbow trout and bluegill at Kaysville recently. Traditional methods such as fishing a worm off the bottom or using a worm under a bobber are a good bet. (11-03-17)

Logan River


Fishing has been good throughout the Logan recently. Anglers have caught trout at First Dam and in the upper Logan. If you're not sure which flies to use, try an elk hair caddis, a hopper, or a dropper with any beadhead nymph. Crankbaits and spinners have also been working well if you don't have flies. (11-03-17)

Lost Creek Reservoir


Even though anglers reported windy conditions this week, they still reported good fishing for cutthroat trout and rainbow trout. One angler caught nine fish in two hours. Another angler reported catching several cutthroat trout within the slot throughout the day. Try trolling a worm, a worm with PowerBait, or Rapalas. (11-03-17)

Mantua Reservoir


Like previous weeks, anglers report that fishing is still very slow at Mantua. On October 6, an algal bloom warning was maintained for this reservoir. Please make sure to clean fish thoroughly and discard the guts. (11-03-17)

Ogden River


Fishing has recently been fair to good for rainbow trout. Try using worms, Rapalas or spinners. (11-03-17)

Pineview Reservoir


Fishing is fair to good for perch, bluegill, crappie, catfish and smallmouth bass. One angler reports catching and marking huge numbers of perch in many sizes. Anglers reported that many of the perch were in about 30 feet of water. Anglers are still very pleased with the size of the crappie they're catching this year. Some groups are catching their limit of crappie, while others are pulling in much fewer or getting into perch instead. A few other reporting anglers said that they marked large numbers of crappie, but they weren't biting. Anglers are still bringing in a few smallmouth bass and catfish. Be aware that bites have been very light, according to several reporting anglers. (11-03-17)

Rockport Reservoir


The algal bloom warning for this water has been canceled. Anglers report that fishing is slow this week. (11-03-17)

Uinta Mountains


Fishing is good for tiger trout, brook trout and rainbow trout. This time of year, anglers recommend fly patterns such as renegades, serendipity, woolly buggers, mosquitoes, pheasant tails, prince nymphs, hare's ears, and San Juan worms. Try a fly-and-bubble setup if you don't have a fly rod. You could also use a spinner or Rapala. Worms under a bobber or floated with a mini marshmallow have also been successful strategies, especially in the lakes off of Mirror Lake Highway such as Trial Lake. Don't forget to check weather conditions and snow depths before heading up to the Uintas! (11-03-17)

Weber River


Fishing is good to hot this week for rainbow and brown trout. Several anglers reported pulling in some nice trout this week, several of which were decent-sized. This week anglers recommend using a Rapala, Panther Martin, a worm on a spinner, or a white jig. If you're using flies, try a San Juan worm above a beadhead or a sowbug pattern. (11-03-17)

Willard Bay Reservoir


The water temperature is in the low 50s and fishing is slow to fair. As water temperatures at Willard cool down, try downsizing your baits and slowing down your retrieve. One angler reports landing a decent-sized crappie on a slip bobber rig. (11-03-17)
