Few people know the fishing waters in northern Utah better than Chris Penne. An aquatic biologist with the Division of Wildlife Resources, Penne manages fish populations in reservoirs across the northern part of the state. If you like to fish for trout, Penne says you should visit the following waters as soon as the ice starts to leave this spring: Lost Creek Reservoir, East Canyon Reservoir, Echo Reservoir, Mantua Reservoir, Birch Creek Reservoir and Rockport Reservoir. While trout fishing can be red hot as the ice starts to leave, great walleye, catfish and wiper fishing is also available. “I would definitely add Willard Bay and Cutler Reservoir to the list of waters to fish this spring,” Penne says. “Early-spring fishing at Willard can be hot for walleye. Data we collected last year suggests this year could be a particularly good one for walleye in Willard. The walleye population in the reservoir has increased in number.” Subscribing to the DWR’s Northern Region fishing report is a great way to stay updated on which reservoirs have open water and where fishing is the best.
