Utah Fish Report
The reservoir is down to 6 percent capacity
by Utah Division of Wildlife
The reservoir is down to 6% capacity, and the last remaining launch ramp (Yuba Main Ramp - Oasis) is functioning at 7% capacity. Reminder: It is no longer safe to launch anything bigger than a single-axle trailer. Yuba State Park rangers report seeing double-axle boat trailers falling off the end of the ramp when attempting to launch. Small boats are still able to launch, for now. However, the water level is dropping on a daily basis. The state park asks anglers to call ahead to find out about current boat ramp conditions (435- 758-2611). An emergency regulation change is in effect, changing the daily fish limit to a combined total of 20 fish for the following species: Walleye, wiper, trout (any species), tiger muskie, northern pike, channel catfish (no size restrictions apply). This regulation change is prompted by ongoing drought conditions. Yuba Reservoir is expected to experience low water levels this year and fish loss is expected due to adverse conditions. The intention of the regulation change is to increase harvest and provide anglers the opportunity to harvest additional fish prior to fish loss, if loss occurs. This emergency regulation change is effective immediately and will remain in effect until Sept. 30, 2022. All other rules listed in the 2022 Utah Fishing Guidebook remain in effect.
