ABAJO MOUNTAINS: (August 13) Sergeant J. Shirley reports that fishing is fair to slow at blanding #3 and #4. Anglers should fish in the early morning or late evening for the best chance of success. Marshmallows or PowerBait have been the most effective baits. Fishing is fair at Dry Wash Reservoir and fishing is good at Foy Reservoir. Keep the bait or fly on the surface to avoid catching the moss. Loyds Lake has very little fishing pressure and fishing is good at Monticello Lake. A few smaller pike and a few largemouth bass are biting at Recapture Reservoir, but the fishing is slow, overall.

CARBON COUNTY COMMUNITY FISHING POND: (August 13) Good fishing is expected due to a fresh stocking of fish just before the kids’ fishing day on Saturday, August 11.

ELECTRIC LAKE: (August 13) On August 6, Tom Ogden fly-fished from a kick boat and caught 13 trout in seven hours. His catch consisted of one rainbow, three cutthroats and nine tigers. These ranged in size from 12–16 inches long. Tom used fast-sinking line and size six of the following patterns: bead head soft hackle flies, bead head woolly buggers and Canada blood leeches. The best fishing occurred around the edges in 10–18 feet of water. Tom talked to two anglers in one boat—they said they caught 15 fish with lures.

GRASSY LAKE: (August 13) PowerBait and worms are effective in catching 8- to 10-inch rainbow trout.

HUNTINGTON CREEK: (August 03) Flash floods and mudslides have wiped out the trout population from South Hughes Canyon downstream to the opening of the canyon and beyond. The fishery on the left fork has also been impacted significantly.

HUNTINGTON NORTH RESERVOIR: (August 13) State Park Manager Dan Richards reports that some anglers have been catching trout from the shore with PowerBait. Small to medium-sized bluegills are biting in the shallows. A few wipers in the 7- to 11-inch range have been caught by trolling.

HUNTINGTON RESERVOIR: (August 03) Aquatics Biologist Calvin Black reports fair success trolling using orange spoons with black dots or slashes. He also recommends trying a Jakes lures.

JOES VALLEY RESERVOIR: (August 13) Conservation Officer Ben Stearns describes fishing as slow. Chub meat has been the most effective bait.

LA SAL MOUNTAINS: (August 03) At Kens Lake, the daily limit on rainbow trout has been increased to eight fish because of the dropping water levels and rising temperatures. Conservation Officer TJ Robertson reports slow fishing.

On July 24, Lieutenant Carl Gramlich checked anglers at Rattlesnake Ponds and reported hot fishing for bluegills using a worm under a bobber. Gramlich reminds anglers that they need to call the Division office in Price to receive a free registration number in order to access the ponds. The ponds are privately owned and only available to the public under a walk-in access agreement.

MILLSITE RESERVOIR & STATE PARK: (August 03) On July 26, Tom Ogden fly-fished from a kick boat. He reported good fishing and said he lost track of the number of fish he caught, most of which were rainbow trout in the 12- to 15-inch size range. He used fast sinking line with sizes 6 and 8 black, red and blue bead head soft hackle flies or a size 4 black, green and pearl bead head wooly bugger. Tom also saw boat anglers catching fish using spinners and lures.

PETES HOLE: (August 13) Conservation Officer Ben Stearns recommends PowerBait or worms for 8- to 10-inch rainbow trout.

POTTERS PONDS: (August 13) Try worms or PowerBait for pan-size rainbow trout.

RIGHT FORK OF HUNTINGTON CREEK: (August 13) Access to the canyon is closed due to potential mudslides.

SCOFIELD RESERVOIR: (August 13) State Park Manager Jonathan Hunt reports that PowerBait has been working well for rainbow trout near the boy scout camp bay. One party in a boat stated that they couldn’t set their poles down long enough to eat lunch without catching a fish. They were fishing with small white tube jigs, tipped with chub meat or a worm. Other boaters said that the deeper they fished, the fewer chubs and the more cutthroat trout they caught.
