  Just another Willard report..Wed. 9-20
Posted by: Jmorfish - 4 hours ago - Forum: Utah Fishing General - No Replies

So until our waters cool down, we can at least have a little action at Willard..I'm not talking 10, 15, or 20 plus fish days..I don't think this is the time of year to expect that, at least not for me...I'm talking 4,5, or maybe 6 or 7 landed fish...Last Friday it was 3 landed for a friend and I, and today it was 6....4 cats, 1 jumbo perch, and 1 small wiper...nothing great, but good to be on the water and see some poles bending...My best set was still my 2oz bottom bouncer, about 100' back, with chartreus/yellow crawler harness and a juicy nite crawler..even with the tail cut short, I still had 4 lite hits where there was no hook up..my friend also had a couple lite hits like that.. my planer board caught 2, using TD's whirly flig with small nite crawler piece..my buddy caught his perch and cat on bluish crankbait, after he added small pc of nite crawler..Lots of 'down' time for us while trolling this morning, and very few other boats seen on the water..water surface still 68 to 71*...better than sitting at home..Guluk..

  Muskys in the Uintas
Posted by: Cowboypirate - 9 hours ago - Forum: Utah Fishing General - No Replies

The dark web (FB) today had confirmed catches of musky in the Uintas. Small ones. They named Angel Lake east slope. I know that infuriates some and fascinates others. I myself fall in the fascinated group. Want to see if having them creates a setting for bigger brookies and less stunting in the future. Would be nice to have some big brookies wandering more lakes..

  Regulation Changes
Posted by: DjHill16 - Yesterday, 06:01 PM - Forum: Utah Fishing General - Replies (10)

Hey guys I'm considering trying to get Utah to allow a five rod limit while ice fishing like Idaho and Wyoming allow. I am thinking that it would apply more to our trout lakes such as Causey, Porky, Bear Lake, etc. and not so much our panfish lakes like Newton and Mantua. So for example places like Henrys and the gorge allow multiple rods while ice fishing but they are primarily trout lakes. I can't speak for lakes south of cache valley and how this change would benefit or hurt them. Do you guys think this is something worth chasing and working on or what is your opinion on the matter?

  Bad news for Idaho fisheries and waterways

This is not good news at all and since they was found in the Snake river, they could spread everywhere along the river Sad

  Quagga mussel larvae found in Idaho
Posted by: Kent - 09-19-2023, 10:32 PM - Forum: Utah Fishing General - Replies (7)

I just got this information:

"The Idaho State Department of Agriculture (ISDA) confirmed yesterday the presence of quagga mussel larvae in the Centennial Waterfront Park area of the Snake River. Multiple samples of quagga mussel at larval life stages have been found in the Twin Falls area by ISDA’s early detection monitoring program. 

The findings mark the first time a rapid response plan has been put into action for quagga mussels in Idaho. ISDA is implementing a rapid response plan that includes notifying impacted entities, implementing containment measures, conducting delimiting surveys and evaluating for potential treatment options." 

Definitely, not the news I wanted to see. Angry

  Sturgeon invite tomorrow (Wednesday the 20th)
Posted by: Kent - 09-19-2023, 03:33 PM - Forum: Utah Fishing General - Replies (3)

I realize it is on short notice, but I have an itch that can't be scratched.  The weather forecast is favorable for tomorrow (which more often than not the wind forecast is for strong winds) and so I want to do another one-day sturgeon trip.  If anyone would like to join me, send me a PM.  I have equipment that I will loan, I just ask that you pay to have it replaced if it is lost or damaged.  I leave the Bountiful area at 4:00 AM and I often don't return until late in the evening. Your share of the expenses would be ~$75 (if two of us go) and ~$50 if three of us go).  You will need to buy a one-day Idaho fishing license, if you don't already have one.  If available, and want to go, send me a PM.
