Conditions : SCOFIELD RESERVOIR: Fishing forecast (September through November): Fall can provide great fishing for trout, tiger muskie and wiper. Utah chub are the most abundant prey for the other fish in the reservoir. Follow the chubs to find big fish. Tiger trout: Early morning fishing is key for targeting tiger trout. Tiger trout will cruise the shallow shoreline before daylight feeding on Utah chub. Utah chub will congregate to spawn in shallow rocky and weedy areas, and splake will target the spawning chub as a food source. Try using dead Utah chub as bait to catch fish during this timeframe. Cut off a one-by-one-inch piece of chub meat and thread it on a 1/8-ounce or 1/4-ounce jig head. Cast the bait out and let it sit on the bottom. Casting tube jigs and swimbaits tipped with chub meat will also work from shore. Keep your jig close to the bottom as you retrieve/reel, because most fish will hug the bottom. Other good lures to try will be silver-and-white, or black-and-white crankbaits. Tigers will move to shallow water in the fall when water temperatures drop. Cutthroat trout: Target cutthroat with similar tactics as tiger trout. Use tube jigs tipped with chub meat and crankbaits. Cutthroat can be found in shallow water later in the fall when water temperatures drop. Rainbow trout: This reservoir usually gets stocked in October for the last time for the year. Good fishing for rainbow trout is typical for this time of year. Use standard trout fishing tactics from shore like worm and marshmallow/salmon egg, PowerBait, spinners and spoons. Tiger muskie: Look for fish along rocky shorelines in water 5-15 feet deep. Most fish are feeding on Utah chub and crayfish along the rocks. This is a perfect opportunity to target fish with a fly rod. Large streamers (4-10 inches) cast along rock outcroppings will produce best results. Cast swimbaits or crankbaits that look like chubs (silver/white and black/white) as another option. In the fall, fish will move to shallow weedy bays looking for chubs. Troll crankbaits and swimbaits to target these fish. Wiper: Wipers will be active along rocky shorelines in the fall. For wipers, use lures and flies that imitate chubs and crayfish.
