Otter Creek

Rating - Good   

Saturday, Jan 14 2023
Fishing forecast (December through February): Safe ice usually appears on Otter Creek Reservoir in mid- to late December and lasts until mid- to late February. Early-season ice can be uneven, so you need to be very careful, check ice thickness frequently and avoid pressure ridges. Mild winters can also cause unsafe ice. Ice fishing can often be fast for fat rainbow trout during the first month after the reservoir caps. Although fishing often slows down later, you can still find steady action throughout the winter. Keys to late-season ice success include moving around, avoiding areas of heavy fishing pressure, and varying tackle, bait and depth until you find a combination that works best. Consult the Otter Creek Reservoir entry on the Fish Utah Map for more ice fishing tips.

Access Info

Look for trout to start getting more active with cooling water in the next few weeks. Until then, summer fishing patterns will continue with best fishing from boats  both trolling and bait fishing. If fishing from shore, focus on steeper shorelines around the south end and state park.
