Mid May Report,fishing southern utah

Fly Fishing Report.

  The Ice is gone, boats have been out on the Lake, fishing has been slow to fair, for Rainbows and Splake along the weed lines. we have done best fishing from shore out from twin creeks slowly striping soft hackles and caddis nymphs.

Seven Mile:
 Road is still closed, water level was high with run off.

U.M Creek:
 access is good, fishing has been good using nymphs fished close to the undercut banks.

 Was treated last Fall, fish will not be stocked till later this summer.

 Was treated last Fall also. there are a fair population of browns that have moved back in. there has also been some Rainbow trout stocked, fishing should improve with the warmer weather, typically there is a very good Olive Midge hatch at this time of year, it appears to be starting now and should increase as the weather and water temps warm.

Fremont River:
  Fishing has slowed on the upper Fremont, the Hatches are just starting to get under way. there has been a decent blue wing olive hatch on the overcast days. the Fremont Below Highway 12 is running Clear, the Stone flies have started to come off, and the Blue wing olives are coming off now and the fish have been actively feeding on both, fishing has been really good.

Boulder Mtn:  Fishing is still limited due to Snow, access is improving all the time. access is good past bobs hole on the Donkey Road, and access is good to the trail heads on the North Slope road to Fishcreek and Beaver Dam, there are still a few drifts up there so use caution.

Thousandlakes Mtn:
Fishing remains fair in the solomon basin area, the fish are smaller but healthy, fishing is also good for holdover Rainbows on Round Lake.
