May 26th Main Lake Water Temp. 67 Degrees
The Lake elevation is 3780.50 Storage is 160,900 acre ft.
The Main Lake is clear.
All 5 ramps are now open and all of the parking spots are opened up for day use from 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
Even with the heavy boat traffic this weekend a lot of fish were caught.
Bass are very active shallow and are hitting numerous styles of baits. Some appear to be spawned out while others are on the beds. Males that are guarding fry are liking Spinnerbaits and small, shallow running Crankbaits.
Crappie appear to be spawning now. Live Minnows, small spinners, and jigs are all working.
Walleye are on the points in 8 to 12 feet of water. Crankbaits, Swim Baits, and Jigs are good choices. David Martinez sent us picture of 8.25 lb. Walleye caught this week. Nice Fish!
White Bass are suspended over deeper water but are near the surface. Trolling with medium diving Crankbaits is producing the best.
If you like to fish, now is the time to be on Ute!
Until next week,
TIGHT LINES, GOOD FISHING, AND "MAKE 'EM BITE"!
