(Scott Sommerdorf | The Salt Lake Tribune) Gatlin Bueter, 8, spent some time shoveling snow away from the area he and his father, Tyler, had chosen on the ice at Rockport Reservoir. They were two of the people ice fishing on Rockport Reservoir looking to hook one of more than 30 tagged trout swimming beneath the reservoir's ice Sunday. Lucky anglers who catch one and take it to the Rafter B store can claim prizes ranging from cash to gear.
Utah State Parks to host Wasatch Back Quad-Fishalon ice fishing tournament in 2014

Safe ice fishing conditions are just emerging across on Utah's popular waters, but it isn't too early to mark the calendar for a new tournament being held by Utah State Parks in 2014. The first annual Wasatch Back Quad-Fishalon is being held on Saturdays from Jan. 25 to Feb. 22 at four different reservoirs associated with Utah State Parks.

The registration for the tournament is Jan. 22 at noon and the fee is $70 for all four events. Prizes will be awarded each weekend and overall prizes of $500, $300 and $200 gift cards to Scheels will be awarded at the end of the tournament to the anglers with the largest total measurements.
