Utah Fishing Report

Lakes & Reservoirs

Water Condition
Water Temperature  

Conditions : FLAMING GORGE: All of the launches are iced-in and most of the reservoir is frozen. Be prepared for a receding shoreline, soft edges and slush once the weather warms. The roads will likely be muddy throughout the week, too.

Lake trout: Fishing is slow to fair for small lake trout while jigging in 50 to 100 feet of water near main channel points and ridges. Watch for suspended concentrations on your fish finder and vertically jig a 1/4- to 3/8-ounce 3.5-inch white or glow-n-the-dark tube jig (Dry Creek Outfitters) tipped with sucker or chub meat. Small lake trout (less than 25 inches long) have become overabundant, causing competition for food and a decrease in growth rates. If this trend continues, it will impact the trophy lake trout component (less food to grow big fish). Please help the resource by harvesting your limit of lake trout smaller than 25 inches. This size of fish also makes for an excellent meal.

Kokanee salmon: Prior to freezing in, some anglers were launching boats at Lucerne and catching kokanee while trolling dodgers/squids in 10 to 15 feet of water under planer boards.

Rainbow trout: Some anglers are having success fishing open water from shore near the dam. Marabou jigs are very effective, in earth tones and 1/4-ounce weights. Spinners, spoons and other jigs will work as well. Ice anglers report good fishing in 8 to 15 feet of water using small jigging spoons and jigs tipped with mealworm. Chartreuse and pink have been successful lure colors.

Smallmouth bass: We haven't received any recent reports. It's uncommon to catch bass in the winter.

Burbot: Fishing is good. Look for areas that weren't hit by the Burbot Bash crowd. Target burbot on rocky points and shorelines in 20 to 40 feet of water at night. Use glow-in-the-dark lures like Yamamoto grubs, Radical Glow tubes, Maniac Cutterbugs and Northland Buckshot spoons. Tip your lure with sucker or chub meat, recharge the glow frequently and jig the presentation a couple inches from the bottom.
