Southeastern Utah Fishing Report

Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints

ABAJO MOUNTAINS: (February 14) Conservation Officer Dennis Shumway reported slow fishing. Generally, the ice is thin and unsafe. Recapture Reservoir is partially iced over, but the water level is very low.


HUNTINGTON RESERVOIR: (February 14) On Feb. 1, Kyle Herret fished in 20 feet of water near the dam and caught two 17-inch tiger trout in four hours. The snow was 12 inches deep and the ice was 30 inches thick. Kyle said he didn't mark too many fish and saw nothing on the flasher during the last hour.


JOES VALLEY RESERVOIR: (February 14) On Feb. 6, Tony Wright fished at the dam inlet for 1.5 hours and caught four 15- to 16-inch and one 1-inch tiger trout, and one 10-inch cutthroat trout. Tony said the fish hit almost anything that was tipped with chub meat or a mealworm.


MILLSITE RESERVOIR & STATE PARK: (February 14) On Feb. 7, Brandon Behling reported thin ice across much of the reservoir except in the coves. The warm weather since probably means that there is more open water today.


SCOFIELD RESERVOIR: (February 14) On Feb. 7-8, JD Abbott fished with jigs and Kastmasters tipped with chub meat and reported slow fishing. Fishing was best in the morning. In general, small jigs and lures work best. Try using glow-in-the-dark or white lures. Mealworms, worms, chub meat, minnows and salad shrimp are the most popular baits. Most tiger and cutthroat trout are either under or inside the slot limit. Rainbow trout average about 12 inches.
