I would say Birch creek, Scholfield and Huntington. That's where I have had the best luck. Hyrum has a few, but not the first place I would head for tigers.

Stupid'ist fish I've ever seen. Wanna catch a boat full? Anchor off in 20ft of water on a bright sunny day. Those fish will come up under the boat and sit in the shade. Drop a line over 15ft below the boat with a worm on it. Dont even have to jig it, leave it dead stick. You can catch hundreds at a time... seriously.

Huntington or Scofield hold a few thousand, we have caught them on occasion at Causey as well.

based on the last several state records one might think Scofield, but they are pretty tough to get. It will all be poisoned here in the not so distant future, I think the tigers are the only reason they haven't poisoned it already. My neighbor volunteered to help with the gill net survey and the chubs are only getting worse according to him.

Ixnay on the Irchbay, anmay! I thought it was understood that a public post was only supposed to be include the second best spot.
