Panguitch Lake Trend Net Survey – May 7, 2013
During the annual trend net survey at Panguitch Lake the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources found good numbers of rainbow and cutthroat trout, as well as a few tiger trout. Thirteen to 18-inch trout were abundant in the catch, while a number of larger fish were also observed. Big fish for the day included a 25-inch, 5.6-pound cutthroat trout and a 28-inch, 7.7-pound tiger trout. This whopper was the largest fish seen in the netting surveys since the fishery restoration project of 2006. The other good news from the survey was that no Utah chubs were caught. Fishing from shore and boats is fair to good right now and this should continue through Memorial Day.
