Fishing Conditions Jordanelle Reservoir: If you’re fishing from shore, try using garlic/chartreuse, pink, or yellow/corn trout dough bait, or nightcrawler with a garlic-scented marshmallow fished 12 to 18 inches off the bottom, fished 36 to 48 inches below a bobber, or 3 to 4 feet behind a casting bubble. We recommend filling the bubble completely with water to allow your bait to fish the entire water column. Also, try using silver or smelt colored Rapala Balsa Xtreme Swimmer, black/brass Berkley Flicker Minnow, gold Rapala Original Floating Minnow, gold Jakes Spin-A-Lures, or streamers such as wooly buggers and leeches behind a casting bubbler.

You must self-decontaminate for Aquatic Invasive Species/mussels if you have been to contaminated water including Lake Powell.  You must be dry for 18 days in the spring for simple boats like sailboats and non-motorized vessels (ex. paddle boards) or be professionally decontaminated before you launch at another water body.  If you have a more complex boat with ballast tanks or in/outboard motors with unverified water, 30 days of dry time is required regardless of the time of year, or professional decontamination must be completed before you launch at another body of water.

Our decontamination station is now open. If you need decontamination, please contact the park office at 435-649-9540 to make an appointment. If you have been to Lake Powell and your boat has ballast tanks, you must be decontaminated regardless of the time the boat has been out of the water.  This is due to the major infestation at Powell.  Mussels are appearing on boats that are there less than a week.
