Fall For Fish At Strawberry
Many people think fishing is a summer sport and they move on to other things during the fall. But fishing success actually improves at many Utah waters during the fall. Strawberry Reservoir is a prime example. As the colors on the leaves start to turn, the trout fishing heats up. Fishing is good right now and it will actually get better and better as the season progresses.
I fished Strawberry today and had great fun. We caught 4 big cutthroat ranging from 19-21 inches, plus a bunch more smaller fish. A 21 inch trout is a very nice fish, but there are bigger ones in there. During fall people occasionally catch 25+ inch fish. There are also some big rainbows in the reservoir.
Fall colors were gorgeous on the hillside above the reservoir, and in the canyon about Heber on the way up the mountain. Colors will probably peak up there in about 1 week.
Flaming Gorge, Fish Lake, Lake Powell and many other waters are fishing very well right now and will continue to get better during the next few weeks.
This is a great season to get out and enjoy Utah's outdoors.
