Flat Tops Fishing Report (7/12/18) Weve seen some very warm, dry conditions in the Flat Tops over the last month, which has pushed fish to find cooler water. If youre fishing the rivers and streams, look for more action in faster moving runs and riffles rather than quiet pools. Fishing the lakes has been a challenge as fish seek cooler temperatures in deep water.

Flat Tops Fishing Report (6/14/18) Action on the lakes and streams is picking up in the Flat Tops. Were getting reports of anglers having exceptional days on a number of lakes and streams in the area. Caution is advised when using the trails in the area this time of year.

Flat Tops Fishing Report (5/24/18) The runoff appears to have peaked in the rivers and streams of the Flat Tops, but flows remain high. We expect that conditions on both forks of the White River as well as below the confluence will continue to challenge anglers for the next week or so. Your best options for now will be the lakes and the smaller streams at higher elevations. Were hearing that all but the highest lakes are open, but accessing them might be a challenge due to remaining snow. Flat Tops Rivers and Streams: ... Read More
