Conditions : DEER CREEK RESERVOIR: The reservoir was stocked with rainbow trout on April 24. Anglers are catching 14- to 19-inch rainbow trout and brown trout from shore, boat, kayak, and float tube. Anglers fishing near the main boat ramp and in Rainbow Bay report high catch rates. If you’re fishing from a boat, try trolling at 1.2- to 1.5-mph using 1/4-ounce black/yellow spot or gold/red spot Jake’s Spin-A-Lures, 1/4-ounce gold Acme Kastmaster Plain or Bucktail spoons, 1/8-ounce gold or fire tiger Mepps Syclops spoons, or 1/6-ounce gold or fire tiger Acme Little Cleo spoons. If you’re fishing form shore, try using 1/6- or 1/4-ounch brass/red spot or chrome/red dot Lil Jake Lures, nickel/blue or nickel/chartreuse Acme Kastmaster lures, or silver or copper Blue Fox Classic Vibrax Spinners. Also, try using yellow or chartreuse PowerBait fished 15- to 20-inches off the bottom using a fixed sinker rig, or a bit of night crawler with a kernel of corn fished 20- to 25-inches below a bobber.

About: - Deer Creek Reservoir Deer Creek State Park is located in the southwest corner of Heber Valley at about 5400 feet in elevation. The reservoir is approximately six miles long with a maximum surface area of 2,965 acres, a mean depth of 65 feet (maximum depth of 137 feet), and offers 18 miles of shoreline.

The reservoir consistently provides some of Utah's finest year-round fishing. One paved and three gravel boat ramps provide access to the deeper waters of the reservoir. Numerous access points from Highway 189 offer prime shore fishing. Since Deer Creek is well known for its strong summer winds, fishing is most successful in the early morning or evening hours. Fish cleaning stations provide additional conveniences and marinas offer boat rentals and some fishing gear.

Directions: All weather access from U.S. 189 southwest from Heber, Utah.

Misc Info: - Yellow perch limit is 10. Regulations: Trout limit 4 (statewide). Walleye limit 6 but only one can be over 20 inches. Bass limit 6. All bass over 12 inches must be immediately released.
