Utah Lake

Rating - Good   

Monday, Feb 06 2023
Fishing forecast (December through February): Between the lake itself and its tributaries, anglers have open water fishing opportunities throughout winter. For the lake, ice does begin to form in the marinas and harbors and in the Provo Bay/Mud Lake area in December. Fishing the lake's open water is typically slow to fair, but white bass fishing can be good in some areas particularly around the Lincoln Beach warm spring. Most if not all of the marinas and harbors have fishable ice (ice that is at least 4 inches thick) around the first part of January. The lake can completely freeze over, but ice thickness and ice conditions vary wildly cracking/fragmenting and ice movement often results in large ice stacking events along the shorelines, creating large areas of open water. Use extreme caution, particularly if/when fishing outside the marinas and harbors. An ice safety guide is available here.Ice thickness in the marinas and harbors throughout January averages 4 to 6 inches, and fishing is typically good for white bass, yellow perch, black crappie and bluegill using small jigs (1/16- to 1/32-ounce) tipped with nightcrawler, mealworm or waxworm. Anglers typically fish from the docks in the marinas and harbors because they are a safer angling strategy and the additional structure/cover the docks provide produce good numbers of fish. Late January into February, anglers targeting open water in the tributaries namely Lower Provo River, Powell Slough, Mill Race and Lower Hobble Creek can see fair to good fishing for largemouth bass, black crappie, bluegill, white bass and northern pike. We recommend using tube jigs, marabou jigs, finesse baits, natural baits and inline spinners. Reminder: Northern pike are invasive to Utah Lake, special fishing regulations are in effect.
