Southern Utah Fly Fishing Boulder Mountain

For more information or to book a guided trip visit us at www.quietflyfisher.com





Boulder Mountain.
access is now possible to all lakes and trail heads below the rim, the boulder top will not be open till later this month.
fishing with leech patterns san Juan worms, and a variety of bead headed nymphs has been picking up a few fish.
look for the callibaetis hatches to start coming off late June to early July.
The Damsel Flies are just starting to show up…. a couple more weeks and it should be awesome!
Millmeadow.
this reservoir has been fantastic this year, there are good numbers of Brown Trout And Tiger Trout.
A float Tube is a great way to fish this water better and improve your chances, try fishing simi seal leeches and Zug Bugs.
Fremont River/UM/SevenMile
The upper Fremont is still running high due to increased flows from Johnson valley reservoir, the Caddis and Stone flies are starting to show up one more week and this river, UM creek, and Seven mile will be fantastic!
flows are coming down on both seven mile and UM creek.
The Lower Fremont is running low and Clear, fishing just keeps getting better and Better Here. it should peak for dry fly action in a couple more weeks, then hold for nearly a month before the hatches start to slow down.
Found This Damsel The Other day… Time To Get Excited!

Southern Utah Fly Fishing, Fly Fishing Guides Report

Quiet Fly Fisher Guide Service And Fly Shop in Southern Utah.
Offering guided fly fishing trips to South Central Utah. Experience Beautiful Quiet Fly Fishing Trips Catered To You. For More info or Reports visit us at www.quietflyfisher.com
Here is this weeks report.

The Weather and the Fly Fishing Is Warming Up!
time to get out there!
Boulder mountain opens this weekend, however access is still not possible to most lakes below the rim, be prepared to get unstuck, and spend the night if you must. The lakes that you can access have iced off.
Thousand lakes mountain, nearly all the lakes are iced off, access is still only possible from the desert!
people have been trying to make it over the top, stop the insanity! There have been 3 people in this week alone stuck and that had to spend the night! , access is only good to Riley springs, past that there are several drifts, give it a couple weeks… Fishing has been good for those who have gone into Solomon basin from the desert.
you can access Johnson valley Reservoir from the highway 72 millmeadow side.
access from fish lake will be a couple weeks away, there is still a big drift covering the whole road in the frying pan area. Ice is still covering most of fishlake and Johnson valley. Johnson valley is clear full and spilling, as a result there are increased flows on the upper Fremont River, this has slowed the Fishing down a little there.
good luck out there and be prepared at this time of year with food water and the ability to stay warm over night if you are venturing in to the mountains.

the temperature has been great for this time of year. the Snow is Melting fast, it’s supposed to be windy tomorrow then snow/rain on the 18th then be back up to 51 deg by Saturday, that will make for some very slushy ice fishing, Millmeadow already has very soft edges, bring a board to get on, we fished it Monday, there was close to two feet of Ice, fishing was decent for some people, we got to anxious to fly fish and took off for the open water at the inlet, we caught some beautiful Tiger Trout There. still no access to Forsyth, checked today, looked like some people had tried and had been stuck about 200 feet down the road, not recommended.
I again went back to some open water today and Fly Fished, it was beautiful out there! I caught one nice Brown, managed to get a picture, caught a really nice tiger too, however with his dislike of me, and me having my big camera taking his picture didn’t work out for me.
It sure feels like Spring is on the way, time to start to think about getting those Fly Rods dusted off.

Here is your latest fishing report.
Upper Fremont.
Access is still limited. 
The warm week has opened up some water, I walked it today, there were quiet a few fish holding in the deeper pools, all looked to be actively feeding.
Millmeadow.
There was a good group of guys fishing out from the boat ramp, they had a couple nice fish, the reservoir is filling quicker now with increased flows from Forsyth, in years past fishing has been better when this happens. Edges could be soft though.
Forsyth had no activity, and there were no tracks in the snow, looks like it has been pretty much left alone this winter so far, it is now full and running over the spillway.

Utah Fly Fishing Guide Trip Report

We offer Guided Fly Fishing Trips to South Central Utah, To Book A fly Fishing Trip or for more information visit our web site at www.quietflyfisher.com
 

Fall In Southern Utah.
it’s finally here the first cold snap that October brings, there was over an inch of Snow on the Boulder Top Yesterday, and Rain Soaked the areas Off the Rim, making for a slippery, cold drive,  anywhere on the mountains.
Temperatures were any where from 45 deg to as cold as 32, are Hands were Bright Red and Stiff with the cold after the release of each beautiful fish.
with the drop in temperature and the cold storm it will turn the fish on to feed like crazy. the Boulders and Thousand Lake mountain, both, have started to fish really well, October Caddis are typically the fly of Choice for us at this time of year, including brown and black Buggers.
The Upper Fremont is still very off color and high with irrigation releases from Johnson valley reservoir, when those releases stop the fishing should be really good up there.
the Lower Fremont just cant seem to catch a break, just as it starts to clear another storm hits, that coupled with the number of Duck hunters in the Bicknell Bottoms, has turned this area into a …. maybe later…. water.
mill Meadow, the reservoir has been lowered, fishing is great at this time, brown buggers fished slow and deep, and Bloody marry flies in sz 14, as well as prince nymphs have all done great for us.
Forsyth, the water level is on the rise, with the draining and repairs that took place earlier on this water its unclear how many fish remain, it was stocked with some smaller Cutthroat recently that should be catchable later next summer.
here are a few pictures from the last couple of weeks on the mountain.
