Ryan Mosley, Flaming Gorge Project Leader with the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources, sent in this report. As always, goof fishing at the Gorge.
Fishing is really good on the reservoir right now, if you like seasonably mild temps, low angler pressure, and big fish!
The rainbow fishing has been the hot bite and 2-3lbers are the norm with the occasional 4lber mixed in. All around the reservoir big rainbows can be found near inflows, launch ramps, and along shallow, rocky shorelines and points. Rainbows will actually excavate "redds" in small cobble rock and on calm days can be easily spotted from the boat. Lots of lures will work, but I've had the best success with 1/4 oz marabou jigs in pinks, blacks, and olives. Try tipping with bait like a Berkley trout worm or piece of night crawler, for further enticement.<
