August 26th Main Lake Water Temp. 78 Degrees
The Lake elevation is 3779.40 and the storage is 154,000 acre feet. The Main Lake is clear.
If you like to fish for White Bass now would be be a good time. We have seen a lot a limits come in over the past week and it is still going strong. Happy Hour Shad jigged in 30 to 35 feet of water on points or in the mouths of the coves have been slaying the Whites. Mid-Lake, from the mouth of Ute Creek to Horseshoe Bend has been a very good area.
Walleye are still pretty slow but a few have turned up on the Slabs. Also, trolling Shad Raps and Flicker Shad on Lead Core line has produced a few 'Eyes.
Bass haven't changed much. Chigger Craws, 5.0 KillShots, and Senkos are good bets for the Smallies, Main Lake points seem to be holding more fish. There is a small window for top water right at daylight and dusk.
Catfish are starting to pick up. They are running a litlle deeper than normal for this time of the year, 15 to 30 feet. We have never been able to find recorded Lake records for Ute, so about 15 years ago we started to keep our own records. Yesterday Johnny Lathem, from Logan, broke the record for Channel Cat. Johnny brought in a 16.67 lb. Channel Cat that bettered Ivory Williams previous record by nearly 2 lbs. Great fish, Johnny!
The last Holiday weekend of the year is here, it doesn't seem possible that the Summer nearly gone. If you headed to the Lake for the Labor Day weekend, please be safe and be sure and stop by the Store to say hello.
We appreciate your business!
Until next week,
TIGHT LINES AND GOOD FISHING!
