KAYSVILLE – The Kaysville Ponds are one of the hottest places to fish according to the latest fishing report released by the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources.
Another fishing hotspot in the county belongs to Holmes Creek Reservoir in Layton, with other fishing waters reporting anywhere from “slow” to “good” fishing conditions for the week.
Anglers who like to catch bluegill will have good luck at both the Kaysville Ponds and Holmes Creek. In Kaysville the fish can be had from either the shore or from any of the docks or bridges along any of the ponds.
Worms are currently the best thing to use when catching them.
Black bullhead catfish are also being caught there using worms near the bottom of the ponds from any of the piers.
At Holmes Creek, small hooks with a piece of worm or a salmon egg from the shore will fetch anglers a bluegill. Bass and trout are also biting well for anglers who use worms or other traditional baits near the bottom.
Anglers will need a walk-in access authorization number to get into Holmes Creek and fish there.
A trio of fish can be caught at Bountiful Pond including bluegill, carp and catfish. Most anglers are seeing success using the inlet near the shoreline.
Most of the fish are being caught using spinners, worms or dough balls.
Visibility is low as build up is starting to be seen in the water.
Farmington Pond is reporting slow fishing but fingerling wipers were recently stocked. Anglers aren’t currently fishing there much, but the wipers could be catchable by spring season.
Fishing at the Jensen Nature Park Pond is also slow despite many anglers being there at all times of the day. Anglers are having the most success pulling catfish out of the water using stink baits at the bottom.
Anglers who want to head south of the county will find hot fishing at Utah Lake, located between Provo and Springville.
The lake is showing hot fishing for catfish, carp, crappie, walleye and bass.
