As usual the beaches are full! Anglers are anxious to get good fishing spots super early in the morning. Crosby Lodge is pretty much booked up, and the nightly dinner specials are in full swing. The fishing is good!
This January has fished well! In January 2018 we saw mild weather with warm temps making the fishing slow. January 2017 we had flooding resulting in lake closure for 6 weeks. This year the storms have been consistent making for decent fishing. Similar to December daily numbers are not at their highest but quality by means of size make up for it; big fish are being caught. Follow the storms!
Water temps are consistently dropping, heading towards the coldest part of the season. The fishing is good for big fish, numbers are not typically high during December but when anglers do get one to the net it’s typically good quality by means of size. Indicator fishing has been more productive than stripping. It appears that the best time to fish right now is during the warmest of the day, noon to 3-ish.
Anglers Nick and Shawn landed some decent fish this week! As did Utah guide Wade Isaman. The weather is supposed to be mild for a few days, let’s hope for more storms soon!
