Ice is now pulling back at Scofield. Ice-off fishing should be good there this weekend and early next week.

 

Strawberry ice-off may start later next week, still too early to know for sure. Watch for updates.

 

Many streams are now running high and a little muddy, but are still fishable. The best stream fishing now will be on protected stretches below dams:

Green River

Provo below Jordanelle and below Deer Creek

Weber between the dams

Ogden below Pineview

Huntington below Electric Lake

 

Lake Powell is now heating up for stripers, smallmouth, largemouth and other species. Peak spring action will probably occur late April and early May. I'm planning to head down the fist weekend in May. I still have room in the boat if anyone ways to come.

 

Flaming Gorge and many small reservoirs now offer good trout fishing.

 

I fished the stream below Joes Valley yesterday and did well using nymphs, catching small browns and cutts. The water was very low, very clear and very cold. Not much insect action.

 

We had planed to fish Joes from my little inflatable boat, but the wind was strong and gusty and we didn't dare launch.
