  • Anglers urged to keep lake trout at Flaming Gorge Reservoir

    Anglers urged to keep lake trout at Flaming Gorge Reservoir

    Currently, the popular reservoir in northeastern Utah—known for producing some of the largest lake trout in the country—has too many small lake trout in it. The abundant small lake trout are competing with kokanee salmon and rainbow trout for food. Because there isn't enough food to go around, the rate at which the lake trout are growing is in decline. And, the number of kokanee salmon and rainbow trout in the reservoir is declining too.

    Springtime Cranking in Clear Water Reservoirs

    By

    Bass will use these structural elements as staging areas on their journey. The great thing to remember about these kind of spots is that they have a tendency to replenish themselves over time as new groups of fish head for the bank. Keep in mind that once the fish have finished their spawning duties, they will once again use these locations as they migrate back to deeper water during the post spawn.

    I am certainly ready for a new season of bassin’ and hope you are too. I’ve been excited to kick off the year with coverage of the International Sports Shows in Sacramento and Scottsdale as well as the Fred Hall show. Stay tuned for upcoming tank seminars on WesternBassTV, if you missed the shows. This year, WesternBass was excited to bring site users video clips from our western anglers at the Bassmaster Classic. I will be watching and cheering them on throughout the year. I would like to congratulate Lowrance pro Edwin Evers for his outstanding win at Grand Lake for the Classic championship – 29 pounds! Wow!

Under the Interactive tab, we have the Tournament Calendar and Special Events with Digital Guides for all of the Wild West Bass Trail events. Under the Delta tab, you will find moon phases, weather, water temps and tide charts to help plan a fun and productive day on the tidal water.
