Fishing forecast (March through May): The reservoir is usually ice-free by mid-to-late March. Rainbow trout begin patrolling the shorelines looking for food and a place to spawn as soon as the ice comes off and provide great fishing throughout March and April. Most popular baits, lures, jigs and flies can produce good fishing as well. Wiper also start to become active and will typically seek out the warmest water in the shallows. For wiper, use lures and flies that imitate chub and crayfish. As spring progresses into May, trout feed actively on the surface during mornings and evenings, while moving into deeper water during the day. Smallmouth bass will also become more active in later spring, and wiper more nocturnal. Check the Otter Creek Reservoir entry on the Fish Utah Map for more details on spring fishing.

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.
