Trout fishing is good

Jordanelle Reservoir - Park City, UT (Wasatch County)

by Utah Division of Wildlife

The reservoir has been stocked with thousands of rainbow trout this month, and trout fishing is good. Shore anglers report success using in-line spinners, spoons, worms and trout dough bait. The reservoir is open water with no reports of ice. Anglers are able to launch from the main and personal watercraft ramp, but Rock Cliff and Ross Creek (non-motorized only) boat ramps are closed due to low water levels. Hand launching non-motorized water crafts from shore is possible at Rock Cliff, but can be challenging in areas due to shallow conditions and will require anglers to walk some distance to reach the water from the parking lot. Jordanelle State Park asks anglers to launch and use the reservoir at your own risk. Bait fishing (using worms and trout dough bait) as well as actively fishing crankbaits, floating swimbaits, spoons and jigs (such as twist tail grubs, tubes and marabou jigs) is producing fish. Boat anglers have also been catching a mixture of trout species trolling spoons (such as Thomas Speedy Shiner, Acme Kastmaster or Luhr Jensen Needlefish), plug style lures (such as Yakima Bait Flatfish, Luhr Jensen Kwikfish or Luhr-Jensen Hot Shot), crankbaits (such as Rapala Original Floating Minnow, Berkley Flicker Shad or 13 Fishing Troll Hunter), baitfish mimic streamer patterns and wooly bugger fly patterns.
