Lake trout: Recent fishing reports show that lake trout fishing success is good depending on the day, patience is key when fishing for lake trout. Try locating fish (60-80 feet) trolling or jigging baits. If you don't find them there, try along main channel depths and on structure in 70-120 feet of water. Good lures to try are jigging spoons such as Northland Buckshots or Crippled Herrings, jigging raps and 3.5 inch tube jigs in 1/4-3/8 oz weight and tipped with sucker or chub meat. Try larger lures for larger fish. If trolling lures on downriggers, watch for concentrations and individual fish on your fish finder and if located, try vertically jigging for them. Small lake trout less than 25-inches have become overabundant, causing competition for food and a decrease in growth rates. Kokanee salmon: Reports of fish being caught. Look for fish in open water from 40-60 feet deep. Most fish are being caught using downriggers. Pink dodger and squid, small spoons and other erratic lures in pinks, greens and orange colors all can work. Rainbow and cutthroat trout: Rainbows at depths from surface to 50 feet, can be found just about anywhere. Look for fish along shallow points and shorelines while water is cool. Good time of year for shore anglers. Recent reports of cicadas in the lower canyon area.Smallmouth bass: Fishing has improved as bass have moved shallower. Crayfish are the main forage for bass in this water. Tube jigs, twist tail grubs, small spinnerbaits, ned rigs, stickbaits, wackyworms and topwater lures can all work. Remember limit in UT is now only 3 fish and catch and release only in WY.
