DWR: Fishing Spots To Enjoy Over Memorial Day Weekend

by | May 24, 2024 | News | 0 comments

The Division of Wildlife Resources has ideas of the best fishing spots to hit over Memorial Day weekend. For anglers with fishing experience who want to visit a larger waterbody with additional fishing opportunities, here are the top recommendations for our area: Strawberry Reservoir in Wasatch County offers pretty consistent fishing all summer long for kokanee salmon, rainbow and cutthroat trout. Starvation Reservoir in Duchesne County has rainbow trout over 20 inches long right now, making for a fun fishing experience. This time of year also offers good fishing for walleye, in addition to rainbow trout. Anglers are asked to harvest smaller walleye (10–14 inches) to reduce competition in this abundant size class. Long Park Reservoir in Daggett County offers a secluded spot with fast fishing from shore or from a small watercraft, and anglers can expect high catch rates. This time of year offers great fishing for rainbow and brook trout and Arctic grayling. Finally, Pelican Lake in Uintah County is recommended and offers great bass fishing from a boat. Fly fish or bowfish for carp for a chance at catching one with a reward tag. For more suggestions and locations, visit www.wildlife.utah.gov
