Tue, Jan 15, 2019
As of Jan. 7, the area just received over 20 inches of snow, so access to the reservoir may be limited. Anglers had reported more than eight inches of ice before the latest storm. If you have success fishing here, please email pictures and results to tonyakieffer@utah.gov. Please use extreme caution when accessing the ice, and be sure to drill test holes.

Ice Update: Up to 4 inches reported as of 01-15-19 The reservoir is still open water, but temperatures have been very cold so conditions will start to change. Fishing is fair and anglers are catching 14-inch to 16-inch rainbow trout. Try fishing morning into midday targeting the upper and middle water columns. For fly fishing, try using nymphs or midges under an indicator. You can also try damsels and hares ears on sinking line using a figure-eight or a slow retrieve. For spin-casting, use garlic PowerBait, pink marshmallow or nightcrawer suspended under a bobber or off the bottom with a slip sinker. You can also try using small Panther Martin Holographic spinners, Blue Fox Vibrax spinners or Pixee spoons. Remember to retrieve slowly. (Last update 01-03-19)

The reservoir is capped with seven to nine inches of ice with seven to eight inches of snow on top. The ice on the edges near the boat ramp is only two to three inches thick and is soft and slushy. Please use extreme caution as the ice conditions continue to change. Anglers are catching 13-inch rainbow trout in 10 to 30 feet of water near the bottom and suspended. They're also catching 8- to 13-inch yellow perch near the bottom. Try using wax worms with banana smelly jelly, ice jigs tipped with a red worm, white jig head with a pink paddle bug tipped with a nightcrawler, glow bright ratfinkees or a pink jig head with a glow maniac gizilla tipped with a worm.

There is currently ice down through the main channel to the Pipeline. It's variable up to this point, so anglers need to take extra precautions. Anglers have reported up to four inches at Buckboard and three inches at Brinegar Ferry Crossing. Uplake from Buckboard, the ice is obviously thicker, with as much as 11 inches at Lost Dog. Some of lower reaches in Utah are starting to cap as well, particularly the backs of canyons and the narrow, calm portions of the reservoir in the canyon region. We recently received snowfall, which can make it difficult to launch boats. Boats have recently been launched at Lucerne and Mustang Ridge, but Sheep Creek, Antelope Flat and Cedar Springs might have questionable conditions for launching. At a minimum, boaters should bring tire chains to be safe, and be aware of slick conditions on the boat ramps. Lake trout: Fishing for small lake trout has been good uplake through the ice in 40 to 70 feet of water, using tube jigs tipped with sucker or chub meat. 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/chub meat. If you're trolling, try spoons like RMT Viper Serpents, Northland Forage Minnows, Super Dupers and #3 Needlefish. Small lake trout (less than 25 inches long) have become overabundant, which has increased competition for food and caused a decline in growth rates. If this trend continues, it will affect the numbers of trophy lake trout in the lake (less food to grow big fish). Please help the resource by harvesting your limit of lake trout smaller than 25 inches. This size class of fish is also perfect for a tasty meal. Kokanee salmon: There haven't been any recent reports from anglers. Rainbow trout: Anglers report excellent fishing through the ice in 8 to 20 feet of water. They're using small jigs and spoons tipped with mealworms or Gulp maggots. A boat is essential to access most of the lower reservoir. There is shore fishing near the Dam Point Visitor Center and boat ramps. Marabou jigs are very effective (use earth tones and quarter-ounce weights). Spinners, spoons and other jigs will also work well. Boat anglers will likely pick up rainbows on small spoons, spinners and crankbaits trolled at depths of 10 to 40 feet. Smallmouth bass: There haven't been any recent reports from anglers. Burbot: Fishing has picked up near the middle areas of the reservoir that recently capped with ice. Target burbot on rocky points and shorelines in 20 to 40 feet of water at night using glow-in-the-dark lures like Yamamoto grubs, Radical Glow tubes, Maniac Cutterbugs and Northland Buckshot spoons. Tip the lure with sucker or chub meat, recharge the glow frequently and jig the presentation a couple inches from the bottom. Remember to charge your glow jigs often. (Last update 01-08-19)

The flows vary greatly, typically ranging between 800 and 2,000 cfs. See current releases from Flaming Gorge Dam. The crowds are gone, and now is great time to fish the river. Try using small zebra midges and other midge dry flies for the best results. Some midge and small blue-winged olive (BWO) hatches have been reported, and anglers have had success with those patterns. Streamers in varying light and dark colors should be useful during these flow changes. Spin fishing is always good. Marabou jigs or tube jigs in earth tones, white/chartreuse, and ginger are a good option in shallow or deep water. Rainbow or brown trout-patterned crankbaits and spoons also work well. Pinch down the barbs for quick release. (Last update 01-08-19)

Portions of the reservoir are beginning to ice over: there are four to six inches near the Rock Cliff inlet, and the north end near Ross Creek is now capped. The remainder of the reservoir hasn't completely capped with areas of open water still present around Hailstone and the dam. Please use extreme caution as conditions change. For ice fishing Rock Cliff, try fishing the 10- to 20-foot water column using silver, pink, or chartreuse spoons and 1.5- to 2-inch white or silver tube jigs tipped with nightcrawler, chub meat or minnow/redside shiner. You can also to target smallmouth bass or wiper by using 1/16-ounce, neon-colored jig head and a 1/2-inch curly tail grub tipped with nightcrawler, or one-inch Berkley Gulp! Minnow. Open water access is very limited making it difficult to use traditional methods. Again, please continue to use extreme caution as conditions change. (Last update 01-03-19)

Lake elevation: 3,579 feet - Water temperatures: 47�F My inaugural fishing trip for 2019 began the morning of Jan. 9 at 9 a.m. We chose that day because there was a chance of a little bit of sun and no wind. The air temperature was 34 degrees and the water temperature was at the normal winter reading of 47 degrees. I dressed in my normal 15 layers of clothing and waddled onto the boat. The first stop was the Castle Rock Cut. It did not take long to confirm that the Cut is now impassable. You can walk across the Cut in the mud but the only way a boat can make it is if you carry it on your back. I do not recommend that. Take the long trip around the main channel and through Antelope Point Marina. We chose to fish in Wahweap Bay instead of spending our short allotted time running instead of fishing. First stop was Lone Rock Canyon where I successfully fished for bass and stripers just before the New Year. The rock at the mouth of Lone Rock Canyon was our first stop, but instead of catching a three-pound largemouth bass, we got a bite from a small striper on a green-and-black wacky rigged senko. We saw the fish but it spit out the bait before we could land it. An hour passed without another bite. We switched over to spoons and searched for deep stripers directly east of Lone Rock beach. The only evidence of fish in the area was a few single marks on the graph swimming at mid-depth. We tried fishing Ice Cream Canyon on spoons and jigs but didn't have any success. Our next stop was the mouth of the cove leading to the Big Sand Dune. Again, we saw a few single fish marks at mid-depth. The only logical way to target these individual fish ? which ranged around at 25 to 40 feet ? was to troll a deep diving lure or use downriggers. We put on some 20-foot deep divers and headed towards Castle Rock. It only took a few minutes to find the first taker: a very healthy 2.5-pound striper hit the Rapala DT20 ( which dives to 20 feet) in chartreuse-lime color. A short time later, we caught another very healthy 2.5-pound twin on a similar lure in Helsinki Shad and then Cisco Shad color. The key here is to troll at 20 to 30 feet with a lure resembling shad. Later, as we filleted fish, we found that each fish had shad in the stomach. Those single marks we saw on the graph were stripers that had fed on the shad that were out looking for another target. Striper schools were tight to the bottom and not often visible. When you find single targets at mid-depth, it is an indication that trolling is the best technique. When large schools are seen moving the best technique is to drop spoons or bait into the schools. This pattern should hold until the lake water starts to warm in the springtime. (01-10-19)

A rotenone treatment occurred in October 2018, and few fish have been restocked. Biologists report 12 inches of ice at the main boat ramp, with some open water in several locations. Bluegill were recently stocked in the reservoir, but biologists do not recommend fishing for them yet. (The number of fish stocked are minimal compared to the lake size.) For now, biologists want to encourage and thank anglers who are releasing the fish they catch and allowing the population to get a jump start. Waterfowl hunters should use extreme caution on the ice when approaching waterfowl. (Last update 01-08-19)

Anglers are still catching good-sized brown trout. Fishing midday will be the most successful. For fly fishing, try using small-sized midges and mating midges. You may also want to try nymphing using small sized baetis, caddis larva, midge larva or pheasant tails. Rod guides and tips will freeze, so you may want to consider using a de-icing product. For spin-fishing, try using small inline spinners and metallic spoons. Regardless of tackle, use a slow retrieve. (Last update 01-03-19)

Anglers report similar fishing to the Lower Provo. For fly fishing, use nymphing methods listed for the Lower Provo will see equal success. Rod guides and tips will freeze, so you may want to consider using a de-icing product. For spin-casting, try using those methods listed for the Lower Provo. Again, regardless of tackle, use a slow retrieve. (Last update 01-03-19)

The reservoir is capped with seven to eleven inches of ice with snow on top. Fishing is fair to slow. Anglers are finding success fishing at 10 to 20 feet for trout and 30 to 40 feet for perch. They are also catching 10- to 19-inch rainbow trout and 6- to 12-inch perch. Try using neon jigs tipped with nightcrawler or mealworms, 1/16-ounce chartreuse jig heads with glowing spiketail bodies tipped with worm, pink ratfinkee tipped with a wax worm or 1/16-ounce glow shot spoon tipped with a worm. For trout, try using one-inch white tube jigs, paddle bugs tipped with wax or meal worms, orange or chartreuse ratfinkee. (Last update 01-11-19)

Fishing has been good at Scofield Reservoir with jigs or paddle bugs in various colors tipped with chub meat. You might also try using white or green glow-in-the-dark jigs tipped with wax worms or nightcrawlers. Anglers have reported the fishing to be best when the fish see lots of movement from jigs. Fishing has also been best shortly after sunrise. (Last update 01-03-19)
