BOUNTIFUL — Despite the constant change in spring-time weather in Utah, many of the fisheries in Davis County are reporting some good fishing.
The reports, released weekly by the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources, still state that there are some icy areas along a couple of local fishing areas, but catching the fish has been relatively easy.
Many of the local community ponds have also been restocked. Bountiful Lake on March 27 was restocked with catfish and other species, making for good catches for those who venture out on boats.
Good spring fishing was also reported at the Farmington Pond, which was restocked on March 29. Anglers who travel there can expect to catch channel catfish, largemouth bass, rainbow trout and bluegill.
Layton’s Birch Creek Reservoir reported existing ice on the surface; however, the warmer April weather typically will melt the ice.
Cutler Reservoir, also in Layton, reported good fishing for small catfish, and another angler in Holmes Creek Reservoir said fishing for small rainbow trout is pretty good, though slow.
Holmes Creek was restocked with fish on March 19, and other anglers have reported getting good catches using traditional baits, spinners and wet flies.
Other ponds and lakes have reportedly been restocked, and conditions range from good to fair depending on the respective lake or pond.
