Deer Creek Reservoir

Rating - Good   

Monday, Aug 01 2022
Anglers are doing well fishing for smallmouth bass fishing points, drops and steep banks/shorelines. Smallmouth are nearing the end of spawn and are beginning to occupy deeper, cooler water. Smallmouth and largemouth bass often move into the shallows in the evening/ at night to feed, making it a prime time to fish for them. Top water baits/ fly patterns, spinner baits, minnow lures/ fly patterns, spider jigs, hula grubs and crayfish patterns are all good options. Anglers are also reporting fair to good walleye catch rates finesse fishing jigs with green pumpkin, orange/yellow or white/chartreuse stick baits along steep banks/shorelines. The reservoir was stocked with rainbow trout mid-June, and anglers are doing well using corn, cheese, or garlic trout dough baits. Early mornings and later evenings seem to be producing more trout.Deer Creek Reservoir is a very popular summer watercraft recreation destination. Recreational boating, swimming, and non-angler shore use are high during these months. Fishing weekends and holidays can be challenging for boat and shore anglers; particularly if/when fishing the Rainbow Bay and Island day-use areas. We recommend anglers seek out less congested, low-traffic areas to help improve your fishing experience. Fishing early mornings, later evenings, and weekdays during these months can also improve angler success and overall satisfaction. Boat anglers are typically able to launch from both main boat ramps through August. However, low water levels can reduce boat ramp capacity and/or close ramps for motorized launching when levels get too low. We recommend motorized boat anglers check Utah State Park Boat Ramp Conditions often this summer to ensure you're able to launch safely. Rainbow Trout: The DWR's spring rainbow trout stocking efforts continue through June into July, and anglers should see fair to good trout catch rates targeting deeper water. Garlic, corn or cheese scented trout dough bait fished off the bottom or behind a casting bubble can be very effective - from boat and shore. Trolling or actively casting the following lures can also be effective: Jakes Spin-A-Lure, Thomas Speedy Shiner, Eppinger Dardevle, Acme Kastmaster, Zona Lures Z-Ray, Panther Martin, Blue Fox Classic Vibrax Spinner, and Rapala Original.Bass: Smallmouth and largemouth bass catch rates are good this time of year. Soft plastic worms, stickbaits, tube jigs, twister tail grubs, Texas rigs, Carolina rigs, drop-shot rigs, ned rigs, Neko rigs. Wacky rigged Senkos, skirted jigs, streamers, swimbaits and topwater flies or lures can all produce fish. Bank fishing is heating up!
