Best Bets for Fall

  • Strawberry Reservoir offers great action for big cutthroat and rainbow trout. Large Rapalas and Pointer Minnow lures are productive when worked along shorelines. Action will remain very good until snow and ice shut down access.
  • Green River, Provo River, Weber River, other trout streams will fish well for browns and occasional other trout species. Terrestrials will remain good until cold weather really sets in. Streamers, glo bugs, scuds and many other patterns should be good.
  • Lake Powell, Quail Creek, Sand Hollow and Gunlock will offer good action for bass well into November.
  • Deer Creek, Willard Bay, Starvation and other waters will be good for walleye until weather conditions shut down access.
  • Otter Creek, other trout reservoirs will be good as long as they remain accessible.
