BOUNTIFUL – The latest fishing report from the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources was released Friday, June 20.
In most Davis County waters, fishing conditions have improved as the Spring temperatures continue to climb.
At Bountiful Lake, catfish will reportedly be stocked soon and anglers are reporting spotty fishing conditions.
Catfish and sunfish are being caught the most on shore. With temperatures increasing during the month, trout have moved deeper into the lake and have proven difficult to catch.
The water level at Farmington Pond is still low and slow fishing conditions have continued through the month. Access to the reservoir can be had in many areas due to the lower water level; however, and anglers using float tubes or other non-motorized fishing boats will likely have the best success.
The water level at Holmes Creek Reservoir in Layton has also gone down; however, it will lead to more success for anglers fishing on the shore. Bass fishing has been very successful using worms and top-water lures in heavy vegetation.
Holmes Creek is privately owned, so anglers will need a walk-in access code to enter the fishery.
Jensen Nature Park Pond in Syracuse is relatively slow; however, most of the birds have left the fishery, meaning better fishing is ahead.
Bullhead catfish and bass are successfully being caught at Kaysville Ponds close to the shoreline where the standing structure is erected.
For anglers travelling outside the county, three Utah waters are reporting hot fishing conditions in Utah.
Rockport Reservoir, Fish Lake and Lower Bowns Reservoir are reporting hot fishing conditions for rainbow trout.
