Minersville

Rating - Good   

Monday, Oct 04 2021
The Minersville trout fishery performed very well with the new management strategy, except during extreme drought years, when competition with Utah chubs tipped the balance and survival decreased. Other fish species - including smallmouth bass and Bear Lake cutthroat trout - were introduced in hopes that they would prey on chubs and reduce the competition threat. Although smallmouth bass established a healthy population and often grow to over three pounds, they were never able to impact chub density. Cutthroat trout showed only minimal success and stocking was eventually discontinued.

Access Info

Trout fishing should start to improve with cooling water temperatures. Some trout can be caught trolling in deep water. Also look for hatches in the early morning and late evening. Smallmouth bass are active and can be caught on crayfish-imitating tackle. Wipers are most active at sunup or sundown and can be caught trolling or casting topwater lures. Wipers are also doing fantastic, with 4- to 6-pound fish abundant. We also saw a few larger wipers, up to 8 pounds.
