Michael Hadley, an aquatics biologist with the UDWR in southern Utah sent in this report from the Minersville Reservoir Trend Net Survey held April 2, 2013

During the annual trend net survey at Minersville Reservoir near Beaver, Utah Division of Wildlife Resources biologists observed lots of healthy rainbow trout from 12 to 20 inches. The largest rainbow caught measured 24 inches and weighed 5.5 lbs. We also saw a few nice smallmouth bass and a couple small wipers. Fishing for rainbow trout from shore is good to excellent right now with nymphs and streamers. Trout fishing remained good throughout the summer last year – this year could be just as good. Look for bass and wiper fishing to pick up in May and June.
