Pelican Lake ice ranges from 10-18 inches thick
Pelican Lake - Randlett, UT (Uintah County)
by Utah Division of Wildlife
Pelican Lake ice ranges from 10-18 inches thick, depending on the area. Inflow is minimal at 30 cubic feet per second. The lake is now covered with 4-6 inches of fine snow. Edges were completely solid except for the inlet. Water levels are high and nearing 80% full. The main road is plowed. The sportsman's access is not plowed and only four-wheel drive high-clearance vehicles should attempt this area. Fishing for bass has picked up with anglers reporting bites in the afternoon that lasted several hours. Anglers should target fish in 8-11 feet of water off weed-bed edges. Large schools of smaller bluegill are abundant, with a few better fish showing up. Carp will come around in smaller schools and can be targeted on the same ice jigs used for bluegill. When fishing for carp, add extra mealworms to your hooks.
Pelican Tagged Carp Project: We do have some tagged carp swimming in Pelican Lake that could be worth a $100 cash prize. We encourage you to help with long-term carp management and bring your family and friends out to target carp using all legal methods of take. If you catch/bowfish a carp with a pink tag in it, please keep the tag and go to the website listed on the tag. Your tag could be worth some cash. Please call the DWR Vernal office at 435-781-9453 if you have questions about tagged carp.
