KAYSVILLE – The summer season may be winding down, but fishing at the Kaysville Ponds remains hot.
The latest fishing report from the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources has the ponds as one of the hottest spots to fish in the county, and is one of the lone bright spots to fish at in the State.
Bluegill remains as one of the best fish to catch there, and most anglers are reporting that fishing from the docks or bridges will see the most success.
One angler caught four bluegill and two black bullhead catfish from the first pond using only a worm.
In order to get a bluegill, using small hooks and a small piece of worm under a bobber will catch these fish.
Worms or stink bait (also known as “blood bait”), dough bait or dip bait, near the bottom of any of the ponds will yield a catfish.
Holmes Creek Reservoir is reporting good fishing conditions for bass, green sunfish and bluegill. Bluegill and sunfish as easily visible according to most anglers and can be caught near the rocks on the dam or by any kind of underwater structure.
Small hooks with a small piece of bait are best.
For bass, using lures and worms under trees will get an angler one of these.
The reservoir is privately-owned so a walk-in access number must be obtained before fishing there.
The Bountiful Pond is reporting good fishing conditions for bluegill, carp and catfish near the inlet and along the east shore between the two fishing piers.
Spinners worms and dough balls are best. A lot of bites have been reported there, and the pond is always being restocked with catfish during the summer months.
Farmington Pond is still reporting slow fishing conditions, however during this time of year the pond is used mainly for swimming.
Anglers who want to try their luck at getting a wiper can still do so. Fingerling wipers were recently stocked there.
The Jensen Nature Park Pond is also still reporting slow fishing conditions despite the growing number of anglers visiting the fishery.
Catfish can usually be caught there using stink baits.
Utah Lake in Provo still remains a hot spot in Utah. Anything from catfish, walleye bass and crappie can be caught there if anglers want to venture south of Davis County.
