Where is a place to catch bass in Utah, and is it catch and release everywhere on bass in Utah?

A lot of people are really into Jordanelle. The bass seem to get pretty girthy there.

Just don't go to Deer Creek. Those dinks aren't even worth reeling in. :lol:

As far as limits on bass go, statewide is 6 I think and normally they have regs to immediately release all bass 12 inches and over. Some places differ with their particular regs. Check the proc.

Echo has bass, too.

If you want bass down south, there's Sand Hollow, Quail, and Lake Powell. Special regs there, too.

Good luck.

There are many great bass waters in Utah. I don't know much about the Northern Utah bass waters, but Quail Creek and Sand Hollow are two of the best Largemouth fisheries in the state. Lake Powell is also a great bass fishery for Largies, Smallies, and Stripers.

Special regulations at Quail, Sand Hollow, and Gunlock Reservoir (another good Southern Utah bass fishery) are as follows:
Bass limit is 4 under 10 inches, and 2 over 20 inches. All bass between 10 and 20 inches must be immediately released.

If you ever need any tips on bass fishing at Sand Hollow or Quail, feel free to send me a PM.

Hyrum, Mantua & Pineview have bass too. There are always wipers and stuff in Willard. Not all that difficult to find some bass water in this trout oriented state.

Utah Bass Fishing ...

Most lakes do have some weird regs attatched to them but for good reason. There are bass all over this state! Largemouth and smallmouth can be found in almost every lake except the high-elevation lakes. My most favorite is Utah Lake for the Largemouth fishing.

You can visit my site http://www.utbass.com and click on "Lake Information" It will show you the spots along with the googlre earth link to each location.
