The water is now open at Six Lakes! The ice has melted, and family groups and fishermen have been coming out the last two weeks and enjoying time on the water. It is a great time of year for a weekend fishing trip or a family vacation.
In March the Six Lakes Fishing Preserve is quiet and the wildlife and birds are abundant and active around the property. Both weekend family vacation groups and groups of fishermen enjoy watching the ducks and geese flying around the property and landing on the lakes. There are also many deer and rabbits on the Six Lakes Preserve this time of year. It is fun for guests to watch the deer as they fish and canoe on the lakes.
The fishing is good in March and April. Fishermen will come out every weekend to spend a couple days on the Six Lakes Fishing Preserve catching big trout and enjoying the peace and quiet the preserve offers in the spring months. Fishermen will want to focus their efforts on the deeper water. The fish will be sitting in the deeper water that is more insulated and stays around 50 degrees. It is more comfortable than the surface water that it is very cold this time of year. Fish also move slowly this time of year. Their metabolism is slower with the cold water of spring, so fish move a little slower in the early spring. We like to use woolly buggers and leeches in March and fish them near the bottom and move them very slowly along the bottom of the lake.
The weekend is a great time to relax at Six Lakes Preserve in the spring. The days are perfect for fishing and canoeing on the lakes. The evenings are amazing for soaking in the hot tub and relaxing by a warm fire playing games or just telling fish stories with family and friends.
We hope to see you this spring at Six Lakes for a Utah weekend fishing vacation!
