Flaming Gorge Reservoir

Rating - Good   

Tuesday, Mar 02 2021
Mostly solid ice from Brinegar Ranch north but open water and pressure ridges in numerous areas south of Buckboard. Mostly open south of Brinegar into Utah with recent wind. Be extremely careful accessing any ice. Only Cedar Springs and Mustang boat ramps remain open. Sheep creek and Lucerne still frozen.Lake trout: Recent fishing reports indicate that lake trout fishing success is fair to good depending on the day and location, patience is key when fishing for lake trout. Lake trout are at all depths due to cold temps. For both boat and ice try locating active fish (15-60 feet) trolling or casting lures or jigging baits. If you don't find them there, try along main channel depths in 60-120 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 tubes for larger fish. Watch your sonar as many of the more active fish can actually be suspended in the water column but most will hug the bottom. If trolling lures on downriggers, watch for concentrations and individual fish on your fish finder and if located, vertically jig for them. Open water jigging lures work well for ice fishing also. Small lake trout less than 25-inches have become overabundant, causing competition for food and a decrease in growth rates. If this trend continues, it will impact the trophy lake trout component (less food to grow big fish). Please help the resource by harvesting lake trout less than 25-inches. This size class of fish also makes exceptional table fare.Kokanee salmon: Reports of a few fish being caught. Look for concentrated schools that move around in open water from 40-100 feet deep and in the backs of bays. Try jigging spoons tipped with gulp or power bait if you can stay on top of them
