Bear Lake


Bear Lake is nearly full, and you can launch a boat at all ramps on the Utah side of the lake. This includes the Bear Lake State Park marina, First Point, Cisco Beach and Rainbow Cove boat ramps. The water temperature is in the mid 50s. Anglers have found fair to good fishing for cutthroat trout while trolling minnow-type lures. They're fishing in 30 to 60 feet of water, and focusing on the area from the marina north into Idaho at Fish Haven Creek. They are also picking up a few lake trout with the same method. Anglers are using deep-diving lures to get down to the 30-foot depth. Using a downrigger will help you get deeper than 30 feet. You might also want to try jigging with tube jigs tipped with cisco or sucker meat. Use this method off of Second Point and at the mouth of North Eden Canyon. (06-09-17)

Bountiful Lake


Anglers have recently reported slow fishing. The pond was stocked on June 5. (06-09-17)

Causey Reservoir


Anglers report decent fishing below the spillway. Try using PowerBait or a worm. (06-09-17)

East Canyon Reservoir & State Park


The water is warming up quickly. Anglers report fair to good fishing for trout and bass. One angler caught a few nice-sized trout before 8 a.m., but anglers fishing later in the day varied in their success. Try using a black woolly bugger, garlic PowerBait or pop gear with a worm. (06-09-17)

Echo Reservoir


One angler reported catching a large number of rainbow trout and smallmouth bass from a boat. Another caught several smallmouth bass using spinners. (06-09-17)

Farmington Pond


The water is high, murky and cold, and anglers haven't been getting any bites. (06-09-17)

Holmes Creek Reservoir


We haven't received any reports from anglers this week. However, fishing for bass and trout has been decent in the past few weeks. (06-09-17)

Hyrum Reservoir & State Park


The state park reports slow fishing at Hyrum this week. To increase your chances of success, fish early in the morning or late in the evening. (06-09-17)

Jensen Nature Park Pond


Anglers have reported that fishing at Jensen is slow. The pond was stocked on June 1. (06-09-17)

Kaysville Ponds


The bluegill spawn has started. Try catching these little fish using salmon eggs on a single hook. Anglers have also reported decent fishing for catfish. (06-09-17)

Logan River


The river is still flowing high and fast, and some areas appear unfishable. Please use extreme caution. (06-09-17)

Lost Creek Reservoir


While some anglers are doing very well, others haven't been as successful. Shoreline anglers are catching fewer fish than anglers who are fishing from a boat. Try using spoons and PowerBait. (06-09-17)

Mantua Reservoir


Anglers report good fishing for bass. Try using plastics around the tree-covered areas near shore. (06-09-17)

Ogden River


One angler reported catching several large brown trout. Please use caution — the river is flowing high and fast. (06-09-17)

Pineview Reservoir


Anglers report good fishing for tiger muskies this week. Try using big swimbaits or spinnerbaits close to shore. One angler caught a large muskie in four feet of water, approximately 20 feet from the shore. (06-09-17)

Rockport Reservoir


Anglers report excellent fishing for smallmouth bass and rainbow trout, even from shore. For rainbow trout, use worms, bright marshmallows or PowerBait. If you're shore fishing, try focusing on the east side of the reservoir or over by the dam. If you're trolling, you may have the most success with spoons and Rapalas. (06-09-17)

Uinta Mountains


Please use extreme caution if you're attempting to access waters in the Uinta Mountains. Warm temperatures have increased runoff significantly, and the rivers are reportedly twice their volume compared to last week. Expect murky and fast-running rivers. (06-09-17)

Weber River


Anglers continue to catch large numbers of brown trout on the Weber this week. One angler reported success with a San Juan worm. At Croydon, the river is reportedly flowing over the bridge. (06-09-17)

Willard Bay Reservoir


Fishing at Willard is hit-or-miss for many species. Anglers appeared to have the most success when targeting catfish. One angler reported catching a large walleye. Other anglers reported less success overall, with some only able to hook a couple fish. Other reporting anglers couldn't get a single bite. (06-09-17)
