JOES VALLEY RESERVOIR: (January 28) Judging from multiple angler reports, fishing success varies widely. The catch rate appears to change by location, day, time of day and angler experience. For the best results, fish during early morning hours. Drill multiple holes and keep moving if a particular hole fails to bring in fish. A good setup is a white jig tipped with chub meat. On Jan. 25, Fisheries Biologist Calvin Black enjoyed excellent fishing using a white jig with red tentacles, tipped with chub meat. He found fish suspended at 16 feet in 40 feet of water. His catch ranged from 14–16 inches and appeared healthy. Except for one cutthroat, all of the fish were splake. On Jan. 25, a party of two anglers reported good fishing success. They used tube jigs tipped with chub or minnow meat in six feet of water.

SCOFIELD RESERVOIR: (January 28) Conservation Officer J.D. Abbott checked anglers on Jan. 26. Some groups were doing well, while others reported slow fishing. Small jigs tipped with PowerBait or wax worms seemed to be working well. Abbott urges anglers to keep moving if a particular hole isn’t producing fish.
