Southern Utah Fishing Report

The weather has finally started to turn off cold here in the Boulder Mtn area, and with those cold nights the fishing turns on for Brooks, Browns, Tigers, and Splake. The Autumn leaves are starting to really turn now and the next couple of weeks should be the most spectacular

Fremont River.
    The Rains have finally waned and the upper fremont is low and clear, there has been increased
numbers of people up there fishing this year and a few 6 to 10 inch browns are being caught on Hares ears and Birds nests, the october caddis are starting to hatch and the fish have been targeting them,
any good imitation of the emerging nymphs has been working best.
the river below highway 12 continues to run high and off color as the farmers cut back on water use and due to the increased flows from millmeadow reservoir as the strive to drain it for needed repairs.

U.M. and SevenMile creeks.
       U.M. has been fishing fair in the upper regions using a royal wulff  on the surface but most fish are being taken nymphs. Sevenmile has been fishing well for Brook trout, with the colder temperatures the fish have become more aggressive and will eagerly attack bigger nymphs and buggers.

Thousand Lake Mtn.
 The fishing remains good in the Solomon basin area with some nice fish being caught, mohair leeches and buggers fished deep have been working best, Morell pond is still the most consistent
with lots of rainbows and cut's being taken on prince nymphs and zug bugs.
as the weather gets a little colder the Brook trout will become even more aggressive on deep creek
and bruce's pond, caddis nymphs and prince nymphs often produce the best results.

Boulder Mtn.
    The dry fly Fishing has slowed on the Grayling lakes as the fish move to deeper water they can still be caught fishing a nymph deep and slow, Baetis Nymphs and lake caddis nymphs are the best choices. fewer people fish the mtn at this time making it a good time to come and brave the cold,
the fish typically move in to the spring and inlet areas in preparation for a mock spawn, trying different nymphs deep and brown leech and bugger patterns works best.
The hot spot remains Lower Bowns with lots of rainbows being caught.
