Grantsville Reservoir

The water level is at 40 percent full and fishing is fair. For conventional anglers, try using nightcrawler fished below a bobber, garlic- or cheese-scented trout dough bait fished off the bottom, metallic casting spoons, dressed inline spinners, brown or black marabou jigs, minnow mimic stickbaits and crawfish mimic crankbaits.

For fly anglers, try using dry fly patterns (size 14–18) such as Adams, Parachute Adams, Elk Hair Caddis, Renegade, or Griffith’s Gnat in the mornings and evenings when fish are more actively feeding at the surface. Also, try using bait-fish mimic streamers, crawfish jig patterns, brass cone head buggers, bead-head crystal buggers, tungsten jig buggers or complex twist patterns. Wet flies such as Hares Ear Nymph, Scuds, Crystal Midge, Roly’s Poly Leech, jig leeches or balanced leeches fished below an indicator work well either dead drifted or with a slow retrieve.

Fishing regulation reminder: A catch-and-kill order is in effect for smallmouth bass at Grantsville Reservoir. If you catch smallmouth bass, please do not release them into the reservoir. 

Settlement Reservoir

The water level is low, but anglers are catching rainbow trout, wiper and tiger trout using a nightcrawler fished below a bobber. Conventional anglers can also try using floating trout dough baits fished off the bottom, darker colored tube jigs tipped with nightcrawler fished below a bobber, metallic casting spoons, inline spinners or minnow mimic stickbaits.

For fly anglers, try using dry fly patterns (size 14–18) such as Adams, Parachute Adams, Elk Hair Caddis, Renegade, or Griffith’s Gnat in the mornings and evenings when fish are more actively feeding at the surface. Also, try using minnow mimic streamers, bead-head crystal buggers, cone head flash buggers, complex twist buggers, balanced swim leeches, or a Roly’s Poly leech. Wet flies, such balanced leech patterns, Phil Rowley’s Balanced Baitfish patterns, or Phil Rowley’s Micro Leech patterns, work well fished below an indicator — either dead drifted or slowly retrieved.
