ABAJO MOUNTAINS: (July 13) Conservation Officer Dennis Shumway reports that Blanding #3 and 4 continue to provide good fishing. Anglers are using worms, marshmallows and PowerBait. The water level at Blanding #3 has dropped considerably, but fishing is still good. The east side of Blanding #4 is the best place to fish. Lloyds Lake has had little fishing pressure this year. Foy and Monticello Lake have had a lot of fishing pressure and continue to produce a lot of fish. Bait fishing with worms, marshmallows and pink PowerBait has been the ticket. A dry fly and bubble have also been working well at both lakes. Recapture Reservoir continues to produce good pike fishing. Try the edges with vegetation or underwater rock formations for the best results.
