Southern Utah fishing report

Fish lake.
The lake still has plenty of open water, there was ice in the pelican bay area and in the marinas, the main body remains open water. The splake have been stacked up at the twin creeks area and the fishing has been really good, a number of patterns have been useful, orange glow bugs, pheasant tail nymphs, olive or white buggers are a handful of the patterns we have been successful with.

Mill meadow reservoir.
The reservoir is fairly low.
The fishing for browns and rainbows has been really good to really slow,  we have used black and red simi seal leech patterns and done well.

Forsyth is nearly full, fishing has been best in the cove next to the boat ramp.
Leech patterns and zug bugs have worked well for us.

Fremont river.
The upper Fremont has been incredible, fishing has been awesome for browns. Fish the pools and runs now.  Useful patterns.
Hares ear sz.14 pheasant tail nymph, sz 14 and 12. Also polish pheasant tail.
Bicknell bottoms, has been slow, we have done best using nose pickers in sz. 16.

Boulder mountain.
Most lakes are closed, there in 3 to 6 inches of snow below the rim, and more likely to accumulat this weekend with the current storm.  There is thin ice on several of the lakes.

Thousand lakes.
Access is possible from the Forsyth reservoir side for those with 4 wheel drive, that could change this weekend.
There was still some open water at Meeks, most of the other lakes had thin ice covering most of the surface.

Koosharem reservoir.
Has an inch of new ice covering the whole lake.
