Southeastern Utah fishing report for early March

Depending on elevation and weather conditions, lakes and reservoirs may be open or frozen on any given day. Smaller mountain waters generally freeze overnight and thaw by early afternoon. Larger bodies of water are more resistant to the daily freeze/thaw cycles. Unless you plan to fish a large body of water, schedule your fishing trip for the afternoon.

•Duck Fork Reservoir

Slow This reservoir is inaccessible, except by snow machine.

•Electric Lake

Slow Use extreme caution, especially on the north end where there are open water pockets.

•Ferron Reservoir

Slow The reservoir is inaccessible, except by snow machine.

•Huntington North Reservoir

Slow The ice is melting around the edges, and the ice fishing season is over.

•Huntington Reservoir

Slow Fishing is slow, and access is difficult. There's a deep blanket of snow and nearly two feet of ice.

•Joes Valley Reservoir

Fair Recently, fishing action has been best from 4 p.m. until dark. Most trout range from 13-15 inches. Anglers may have some success using green jig heads tipped with chub meat.

•Lower Fish Creek

Fair Anglers who use fly fishing tackle have the best success. Use floating line, a small sinker and one of the following fly patterns: a beadhead hare's ear, a beadhead prince nymph or a San Juan worm.

•Millsite State Park

Slow Beware of springs and open water potholes.

•Right Fork of Huntington Creek

Good Anglers who fly fish will have the best success. The bite is better at lower elevations. Use floating line, a small sinker and a size 12 beadhead Montana.

•Scofield Reservoir

Slow Fishing is still very slow. Anglers haven't found any bait or tackle to be effective right now.

•Straight Canyon Creek

Fair Please be cautious around the icy boulders and steep slopes. Fly fishing tackle, floating line, a small sinker and a wet fly pattern will yield the best success.

•Wrigley Springs Reservoir

Slow Access is limited to OHV, due to mud and snow
