Kolob Reservoir Fishing Report 5/18/2012

Hendrickson Boys gearing up for some Fun!

This weekend was our wards fathers and sons outing which was conveniently held at Blue Springs Reservoir about 3 miles south of Kolob Reservoir. I felt luck because we were able to make it work out so that my Dad and 2 brothers were all able to go. I can't remember the last time we all had the opportunity to go camping and fishing with just the boys. Nate and I had been up to Kolob a couple of weeks ago and caught about 8 fish in a couple of hours and so we were really excited to get up there and start fishing.

We arrived at blue springs around 6pm set up our tent, ate some Kentucky fried, and then headed down the road to Kolob Reservoir. The temp was about 48 degrees when we pulled up and it was blowing like an Oklahoma twister in spring. We decided to make the best of it and fished for about 2 hours which with 4 guys fishing equals 8 hours of fishing with nothing. It was blowing so hard it was really hard to cast and it was also freaking cold. My left hand got so numb I could barley feel anything I guess I need some gloves. We pretty much through black and green buggers at them with no success.

Once it got dark we headed back to our camp and since it was right next to Blue Springs Reservoir, which is a private lake and it had all but pretty much stopped blowing we drove down to the boat ramp and decided to throw a couple flies in just to try it out. My Dad stayed in the truck and said as soon as you guys start catching them I will come help you. Well Nate got out and started casting trying his luck. On about the 3rd cast Fish ON! from what I saw it looked like a really nice fish but before he could land it, it got off. Well my Dad jumped out of the truck like he was getting ready to run the St George Marathon and started fishing thinking that we were all going to end the night catching some fish.

We fished for another 30 or 45 mins with nothing. I got a bite but that was it. So we ended the night at about 10:30pm and went to bed. Fishing was slow!
