Small pockets of water have eight to ten inches of fishable ice. Be prepared for a long walk to the ice. Catch rates have started to slow, but consider fishing for trout in the shallower water, and bluegill in the deeper pockets. If you catch a tagged bluegill, biologists would still like you to report it by texting biologist Natalie Boren at 435-219-2644. Please keep in mind that the reservoir has returned to statewide regulations, so the bluegill limit is 50. See the Utah Fishing Guidebook for all regulations. Biologists also urge anglers to practice catch and release to help jump start the population. Please use extreme caution on and around the ice. There is less than five square acres of open water, which equates to about 400 acre feet. Although the water is at deadpool, many fish are still alive. Work on the dam has begun and will continue through the winter. We will not stock brown trout or rainbow trout in 2019 — we hope to begin restoring the fishery in 2020.
