BLACKSMITH FORK: Catching a few browns and a few white fish. Most of the fish coming off of the surface using a No. 16 BWO parachute.

DEER CREEK: Open water on the Charleston portion up to The Island area. Ice is starting to weaken and even open up along the edges of other portions of the reservoir.

JORDANELLE: Some open water on the Rock Cliff side. Use ice at your own risk.<

STRAWBERRY: Ice fishing good. There is still plenty of thick ice reported by anglers. Slush causing problems for snowmobilers and ATV riders.

UTAH LAKE: Ice free. Getting several reports of small male walleye being caught. Success is still slow however. There is no limit on white bass. Tributaries are closed to angling March 1 through May 1.

YUBA: Walleye numbers are up. Twenty-nine walleye recently captured were in the 17- to 20-inch range and very healthy. Fishing should pick up following the spawn.<

CURRANT CREEK: Lake has ice. Still getting a few reports of good fishing. Anglers are going in from the dam and have fished in several different depths with good success for trout.

FLAMING GORGE: Launching boats is possible at Cedar Springs and Mustang ramps. The canyon is mostly frozen as are the other boat ramps. Check conditions carefully since pressure ridges have formed on many areas. Good fishing for 16- to 24-inch lake trout on most areas north of the pipeline. Smaller lake trout will be concentrated in the northern end. Try tube jigs in white, chartreuse, glow or brown tipped with a small chunk of sucker or chub meat. Kokanee fishing is slow. Good fishing for rainbows. Jigs, spoons and other typical rainbow gear work well. Burbot fishing has not slowed. Good catch rates from 5 to 9 p.m. Some fish are being caught during the day in the backs of bays. Locate flats and points near the old river channel. Smallmouth fishing is slow as smallmouth tend not to bite well at temps near or below 50 degrees.

GREEN RIVER: Fishing slows a bit during the winter as water temps are low. Dry fly fishing is typically slow during the winter. Nymphing action was good. Watch for hatches to occur in April. Nymphing with glo-bugs and San Juan worms with smaller nymphs trailing is working. Small midge patterns work some days. Streamers are working well and have been extremely good some days. Size 2-4 buggers such as Goldilox and patterns in olive, pink and white. Spin fishermen should try small Rapalas, small spinners; black, brown or olive marabou jigs; and small jigs.

SCOFIELD : Ice is 20-plus inches thick, but may be softening. Catching some nice tiger trout. Use white jigs, tipped with nightcrawlers. Best fishing occurs between 9 and 11 a.m.<

FISH LAKE: Ice is still 20 inches thick and mostly solid. Good to excellent for splake, rainbows, and perch near the weedline. Tip your jigs with meal worms or perch meat.

MINERSVILLE : Lots of pressure. Fishing has picked up. Fly anglers are doing well with beadhead nymphs and midges about six feet below a strike indicator. Some of the best fishing is found late in the afternoon and when the wind is up.

OTTER CREEK : Fishing from shore is picking up as trout move in shallow.<

PANGUITCH LAKE: Ice is still nearly two-feet thick and not softening much. Not much pressure recently.

SAND HOLLOW : Bass fishing is slowly getting better. Fish are being caught at 10 feet.
