Minersville Resevoir UT Fishing Report 11.29.2012

Minersville Reservoir Fishing Report. Jimmy and I decided to hit up Minersville Res on Thursday while the weather is still nice. We had heard you could catch some nice fish there so we thought what the heck. We caught around 14 total the smallest fish being 15 inches and the largest 21 inches. The average size was around 18-19 inches which was really fun to catch on a fly rod. We caught them all on streamers, green and brown was the color. We really surprised on how hard they fought. All in all it was a great day on the lake catching some really nice sized bows.

Weber River Fishing Report- 11/8/12

Ken Hendrickson and I cruised on up to the honey hole on the "Weeb" on Thursday November 8th 2012. The weather was perfect, a little windy because it was the day before the huge snow storm hit the salt lake valley dumping 25 total inches of snow in 2 days.  We started throwing some egg patterns and sow bugs.  Caught a few on those but we had to switch it up throughout the day to keep catching fish.  We caught a lot of white fish, a few browns.  We also caught them on midges (zebra's, emergers, and even a few on the "merc").  Foul hooked a few with the egg pattern because they are pretty aggressive this time of year if your drift an egg pattern in their spawning beds. Water flows were still super low, i am amazed at how low the river is.  The fish are definitely hanging out in reds, we walked up on some toads chillin in about 6-8 in of water and watched their dorsal fins flutter through the water as we got closer.  Here is a pic of once the nice browns of the day, we didn't take a pic of any of the whitefish we caught, who wants to see whitefish anyways? right? A face only a mother could love...

Yankee Meadow Reservoir 11.5.2012

You couldn't ask for better weather in November!  Jimmy was down in St. George this weekend so we decided we would try and get out for a quick fishing trip. We ended up running up to Yankee Meadow Reservoir at around 12. It took us an hour and half to get there. We were surprised at how many people were fishing on a Monday afternoon in Nov but I guess when its 60 degrees at 9,000 ft in Nov people get the same idea as you. The brookies were in full spawn and trying to run up a little inlet on the south side of the like. I caught the first brookie on about my 5th cast of the day on a green bugger but we caught all the rest of our fish on the famous Black Jack tied by Gill Rowley of and We had a lot of fun and will be using this fly again this winter. Here are a few pics from our trip.
