Fishing Regulations Changed for Some Emery County Lakes

Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints

Anglers who time it right should be in for some great summer fishing at four southeastern Utah waters where the Division of Wildlife Resources has liberalized limits.

Effective immediately, the daily bag and possession limits have been doubled for all game fish in Cleveland Reservoir in Emery County; Miller Flat Reservoir in Emery and Sanpete counties; and Monticello Lake and Recapture Reservoir in San Juan County.

Anglers 14 years of age and older are reminded that they still need a fishing license to fish these waters.

The liberalized limits will remain in effect until Nov. 1.

On Nov. 1, the limits for all species at all these waters will revert back to the original limits set for 2002.

"Three of these reservoirs are being drained or drawn down because of drought conditions in southeastern Utah," said Tom Pettengill, sport fisheries coordinator for the Division of Wildlife Resources.

"Monticello Lake, the fourth water, is being drained so repairs can be made to the dam. We've liberalized the limits to allow anglers to take fish that will be lost because of the dewatering."

Pettengill says fishing this summer should be good for anglers who fish the reservoirs at the right time.
