Minversville Reservoir Fly Fishing 5/24/2014

Hit up Minersville Res on Sat. Caught some nice bows and my first ever Wiper! I had not idea those wipers would fight so hard it was a lot of fun and probably the highlight of the trip. We fished all morning and when we decided to head in I told Jimmy I am going to just troll this muddler minnow in. Well after about 5 mins that wiper hit that minnow and took my line out all the way to the backing and then took another probably 50 yards of backing until it let up. I thought I had a 27 inch rainbow on. We here there are some nice Wipers over in Newcastle Res so we will have to get over there and see if we can catch any. We will keep you posted. Here are a few pics from Minersville.

Little Reservoir Beaver Mountain

We fished up Little Reservoir on Friday afternoon. We were trying to target some big browns but we didn't really have the right setup or time. We caught some little bows and then we had heard that if you use some cut bait that you can catch some nice ones. We have a buddy that caught a 17 pound brown out of this reservoir.

There are a ton of shiners in this lake and it is no wonder that the fish grow so big. We actually caught a couple of shiners and then cut them up and fished with them under our indicators for second just to kind of goof around. Funny thing is I caught a little 10 inch brown doing this. I didn't get a pic of him though he slipped out of my hands before we could get one.

We were talking though and we think that if you get up there towards the evening and fish a mouse pattern, larger streamer, or even some kind of cut bait you might be able to snag a big brown. The camp host came by and said he has seen a 2 foot brown swimming around the shore a few times and he just wants to throw a rock at it or something cause he can't catch it. Let us know if you ever get up there and catch a big one!

Kents Lake Beaver Mountain UT/ Minersville Res

We headed up to Kents Lake on the Beav last Thursday, May 22nd to a little fishing. Jimmy and I met up in Beaver Thursday afternoon and then headed up the canyon. We had never really fished much on the beaver so we were excited at what the fishing trip would entail. We camped in the campground at Kents Lake and fished there Thursday night, Friday morning, and Friday night. Thursday night we started fishing around 6pm and caught around 30+ fish I would say fishing was hot. We caught some bows, splake, tigers, and brookies. Nothing really big mostly around 12-14 inches really fun though because we caught so many. We took my little fiberglass boat that I think I am going to now call, "A river runs through it" because there are few new holes that I didn't know about towards the front of the boat which literally water came in the front and flowed to the back of the boat forming a little river ha!

On Friday morning we fished Kents again caught a couple nicer Tigers one 16 and one almost 17. Then we headed down to Little Reservoir hoping to snag a big brown. I guess there are some nice brown trout that have been pulled out of Little Res over the years. Jimmy has a friend that caught a 17 pound brown from there. Well we weren't so lucky we caught some small bows, some little shiners, and one brown measuring about 10 inches. After we fished Little Res we headed back up to Kents and fished the rest of the evening til dark catching another 20 or so fish from the boat. It seemed to be really good fishing on the far side of the lake in a little cove we liked to call the Glory Hole!

Sat Morning we woke up early and headed down to Minersville Res to see if we could catch some nice Rainbows. We caught 2 small bass, 6 bows, and 1 wiper that gave me the fight of my life. We figured we caught 8 different types of fish on this trip which was really fun, Tigers, Bows, Splake, Brookies, Brown, Shiners, Bass, and Wiper.

 Here are some pics from our trip, enjoy!
