Joes Valley Reservoir
2016-10-26
Good
Anglers have had recent success trolling with chub-patterned lures, and they’re catching rainbows up to 25 inches long. People are also catching splake up to 20 inches long along the cliffs south of the boat ramp. They’re using half-ounce silver spoons and pumpkin-colored curly tailed grubs with a half-ounce jighead. These work best by casting out, letting the line hit the bottom and retrieving them slowly. DWR fisheries biologists also found many large cutthroats, tiger trout and splake during gillnetting surveys last week.

Good
Standard baits, especially stinkbaits and nightcrawlers, are working well for catfish in the Green River.
Miller Flat Reservoir
2016-10-26
Good
Water levels are low, but the fishing is good. Silver Kastmasters are a good lure for catching rainbow trout. Anglers have reported catching many good-sized rainbows (up to 14 inches long) on the south end of the dam.
Millsite Reservoir & State Park
2016-11-01
Good
Anglers report good to hot fishing at Millsite. The past week has offered the best fishing some anglers have ever encountered at the reservoir. Anglers are catching mostly cutthroat trout, which have ranged from 12 inches to 20 inches. They’re having luck while bait fishing from the shore or trolling with Jake’s spinners.
Scofield Reservoir
2016-11-01
Fair
Anglers report good fishing on the south side of the dam arm. Scofield was stocked with more than 120,000 tiger trout (averaging seven inches long) in October. Try using silver spoons, Kastmasters or jigs, as well as soft plastics. As temperatures continue to drop, some of the large cutthroats should also be biting on crankbaits along the rocky shorelines. Anglers are also catching chubs on worms and spinners.
