Deer Creek Reservoir - Charleston, UT (Wasatch County)

by Utah Division of Wildlife

The reservoir is 61% full, and fishing is fair to good. Anglers are catching smallmouth bass, rainbow trout, small walleye, common carp and the occasional bullhead catfish. Smallmouth and largemouth bass often move up into the shallows in the early evenings/night to feed, making it a prime time to fish for them. Topwater baits/fly patterns, spinner baits, minnow lures/fly patterns, spider jigs, hula grubs and crayfish patterns are all good options. Finesse fishing jigs with nightcrawler, green/pumpkin, orange/yellow or white/chartreuse stick baits along steep banks/shorelines are good options for walleye. Rainbow trout catch rates are fair using corn, cheese or garlic trout dough baits. A few anglers report decent trout catch rates using in-line spinners and casting spoons. Early mornings and later evenings seem to be producing more trout and walleye. The smallmouth bass bite seems to be remaining steady throughout the day. The bite does slow down a bit around 10:30 a.m., but it picks back up by about 3:30 p.m.
