Fishing forecast (March through May): Consult the Utah State Parks website for boat ramp hours. Spring provides some of the most exciting fishing of the year for largemouth bass at Washington County reservoirs, though fishing is not always consistent. Spring is a time of change for warmwater fish, and they are highly affected by daily weather patterns. Your best guide for spring fishing conditions is the weather forecast. Fishing is often best after multiple days of calm, warm weather. Fish will be fairly inactive for a few days after a storm or cold front.During the early spring, look for bass to begin moving into shallow water during the afternoon on temperate days. This activity continues as water warms into the upper 50s. Once the water reaches 60 degrees, the bass get even more active and start thinking about spawning. Male bass will start to build nests in the shallows (310 feet) and will often attack anything that gets too close to the nest. At this time, large females are often found a little deeper (1525 feet), waiting for males to chase them over to a nest. After spawning, the females go back out to the deeper water while the males guard the nests. While catching fish during the spawn does not necessarily hurt spawning overall, it is best to release the fish close to where it was caught so that it is less likely to abandon the nest. Bluegill and black crappie will also be getting more active during the spring and will spawn a little later than the bass do.

Access Info

Largemouth bass are very active. Various techniques have been producing. The key is to find the fish and use a bait you are confident in. The Ned rig is increasingly popular and productive this year. The Ned rig is half a Senko threaded on a jig head. Wacky-rigged Senkos, swim baits, spinner baits, dropshots, and crayfish-imitating jigs can all be productive. Try fishing early and late to avoid the heat and pleasure boat traffic
