Utah Lake

Rating - Good   

Friday, Oct 15 2021
The lake water level is currently at 48% full. Low water levels limit the marinas or boat access areas anglers can safely launch their watercraft, and safely reach the main lake. Low water levels also present safety hazards for anglers while on the lake - several boat anglers are getting watercraft stuck in areas shallow areas or on top of sandbars throughout the lake. Provo Bay and it's tributaries, in particular, are very low. Waterfowl boats attempting to access the remaining water in Provo Bay from the Mill Race, Lower Hobble Creek, and Swede Lane access points are getting stuck trying to access Provo Bay because it becomes too shallow. Please use extreme caution and check with the specific marina beforehand to find out if you are able to launch your watercraft from that location. Anglers are able to launch from the Utah Lake State Park (ULSP), and anglers are catching White Bass, Bluegill, Crappie, and Channel Catfish fishing inside the marina and the river inlet channel. Weighted jig-head hooks (1/8 or 1/16-oz) tipped with a piece of nightcrawler is working well for White Bass and panfish. Also, try using nightcrawler, shoepeg corn, or fresh White Bass meat fished suspended in the water column using a small float rig works well (10 to 15 inches below a bobber or slotted peg float, depending on the water column). Smaller worm hooks or baitholder hooks (size #4 or #6), or jig hooks (size #4 to #6, or 1/8 to 1/16 oz) work well. Cat catch rates have slowed and fishing is fair. Boat anglers are having better success slowly drift-trolling bait in areas with deeper water using either a weightless rig (no weight added, simply the hook and bait), Carolina (slip sinker) rig, or a Santee Cooper rig. Fresh baits tend to become more productive than stink baits and livers as the water cools. Try using nightcrawler, fresh White Bass meat, fresh shrimp, fresh Carp meat, or fresh chicken breast.
