Southern utah fly fishing report

Ice still covers most of the lake, the edges are very mushy and unsafe. 
There is open water at the twin creeks area, there were several large fish feeding right along the ice sheet yesterday. We suggest pheasant tail nymphs there at this time of year. 

Ice is off, reservoir is nearly full.
There are still a good number of rainbows and browns in the reservoir, the rainbows have been staging any where there is gravel trying to spawn. They have averaged 14 to 18 inches.
Midge patterns and bead head hares ear have been working well.

 Ice chunks still present in the reservoir so use caution, there is very little pressure at the lake.
We fished it for a little while with no luck.

Access is difficult due to snow on highway 25.  
No reports of anyone fishing it lately.

Lower bowns.
Access is possible.
Fishing was fair when we fished it Friday, we caught 3 in the 45 minutes we were there.
We used brown buggers.
There is no ice left on the lake.

Fremont river.
The upper Fremont.
Access remains good as far as mamoit springs, there are lots of small browns in the river and some larger rainbows closer to the reservoir. We suggest a hares ear in black or natural. 
The bottoms have been slow. We have fished brown buggers there for best success.

Koosharem reservoir.
Ice is pretty much gone.
Fishing has been slow to fair. 
We have been fishing brown and black buggers deep and slow for the best success.

Boulder mtn.
Access is possible to Coleman res.
There is still ice over a lot of the lake.  There appeared to be some fish at the inlet.
Most lakes remain closed until April 19th.

Thousand lakes mountain.
Access is still only possible from the desert side, there is enough open water in the Solomon basin area that fishing is possible.
Access from the Forsyth reservoir area will likely need at least 2 more weeks of warm weather.
