BOUNTIFUL — Fishing throughout the summer in Davis County waters has been an on-and-off success this season due to rising and falling water levels.
However, at least two of the local fishing holes have improved, according to the latest fishing report released by the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources. It was made available on July 23.
At Bountiful Lake, fishing has improved from “slow” to “fair.” Trout fishing in the lake is slow, but catfish anglers are doing well. Some anglers have reported good catfish catching using hot dogs and stink bait while trolling on a boat.
At the Kaysville Ponds, fishing is good for bluegill using small flies. One angler reported catching an eight pound catfish using crawfish bait, but others have been unsuccessful using PowerBait and worms.
If you plan to fish on shore, however, you may want to change your mind. Fishing with worms and PowerBait isn’t seeing any success.
At Farmington Pond, fishing is still slow using worms and PowerBait. The slow reports are due to heat and a fair amount of inactivity in the water, according to the report.
