ABAJO MOUNTAINS: Sergeant J. Shirley reported good fishing at both Blanding #3 and #4. Bait anglers who used marshmallows, PowerBait and nightcrawlers were doing especially well. The best lure was a silver Jakes lure. Fishing has also been good at Dry Wash Reservoir, especially with silver or gold Jakes lures.

Sergeant Shirley said that fishing at Recapture Reservoir was good for bass, pike and catfish. For the best results, fish for pike and bass from a boat or other craft. Cast toward the shoreline into shallow water and then reel back out into deeper water. Any type of bait will catch catfish at the reservoir.

LA SAL MOUNTAINS: Conservation Officer T.J. Robertson provided the following report:

Dons Lake: Fishing has been good with bright-colored baits and all types of lures. Good choices include Jakes lures, small spoons and Roostertails.

Hidden Lake: Fishing has been excellent, regardless of the bait. The best lures have been small spoons, Jakes spinners and Roostertails.

Kens Lake: Bass fishing is improving as water temperatures rise. Typical bass lures, such as doubletail divers, are effective. Trout fly fishing in Utah has been fair to good. For the best results, fish in the early morning or evening. Recommended baits include PowerBait, nightcrawlers and salmon eggs. The best spinner is a Jakes lure.

Oowah Reservoir: The access road is now open. Holdover trout have been hitting small lures and flies. Stocking should occur by the end of the week.

Rattlesnake Ranch: Fishing has been good with all types of baits. The property surrounding the lake is privately owned. Please keep vehicles on established roads and pack out all garbage.

Warner Lake: The gate is open, but fishing has been slow. Stocking should occur by the end of the week.
