Minersville Reservoir

Notice - Minersville is a Trophy lake.  Special regulations apply.  Please see the proclomation for more details.

July 19th, 2017 - Fishing is good.  Wiper have been biting in the evening and Night.  They are doing really good on Large Rapalas, Jakes, Spooks and Rattle Traps. 

June 15th, 2017 - Fishing has been good.  Boats are having the best success, but we have seen a few people catch wiper from the shore.  Wipers are in the 4-8 lb range. 

May 26th, 2017 - Fishing has been a little slow, but I have heard that some people have caught some wiper from boats using Pop-Gear or Large (4-5") Rapalas. 

May 1st, 2017 - We have heard that some fisherman have been doing really well on wiper at night.  They are in schools and will come around the lake. Be patient.  Some big ones are being caught.  They also Gill Netted and caught quite a few wipers in the 5-8 LB. range.  Great sign.

April 15th, 2017 - Fishing has been good.  Nothing biting for the Wiper or Bass yet, but a few people have been catching a decent # of trout.

January 17th, 2017 - A lot of people are wary about walking out on the ice... With the warm weather/Rain the last 2 weeks, the Ice has become thinner.

January 1st, 2017 - Ice fishing has been a little slow.  A few people have caught 2-3 in their trip down, but some are saying they were skunked.

December 27th, 2016 - Still a little open water and fishing has been great! Seems like black and orange are the top colors for Fly Fisherman.

December 1, 2016 - Fishing has slowed down, Ice should be forming soon for the Ice Fisherman

September 3, 2016 - Fishing has been really good the last week.  Wiper and Rainbow are being caught.  Fly Fishing seems to be the best for Trout and Trolling for Wiper w/silver spoons

May 4th, 2016 - Fishing has slowed down a little, but is still pretty good.  Boat fishing should be really good.

March 2nd, 2016 - Minersville ice off has begun.  Fisherman were lined up on the South end of the lake yesterday.  Should be even better today.

February 19th, 2016 - A recent warm spell has caused concern for Ice thickness.  A couple of customers have told us that there is still 12+ inches of ice.  This should be enough, but water and slush can change that quickly.  Please be careful and check back for more information on Ice thickness.  I will post as I hear what people are saying. (We do not recommend fishing on thin ice and caution everyone to be thorough on making sure safety is your concern.)

January 8th, 2016 - good fishing and tons of ice.  Recent snow has increased the ice thickness and conditions are great!  Small Jigs seem to be the hottest.  Atomic teasers still seem to be the most popular. 

November 18th, 2015 - Early reports have been good on Ice Fishing.  Atomic Teasers and Plastics in White, Pink and Orange seem to be the Hottest. 

April 18th, 2015 - Fishing has been good.  We have heard of a few Wipers being caught and early fly fishing has been good for trout.  Wooly Buggers, Midges/Nymphs have been the top choice so far.  Green/Orange or Black/Orange are good combos.  Gold and Silver for Lures.

January 2, 2015 - The ice is now thick enough that fishing has started.  Early reports are a little slow, but it should pick up soon with warmer weather coming. Black seems to be the most popular color topic for bait so far this year.  (Black Leach, Buggers, Dark Jigs, etc.)

August 26th, 2014 - Fishing has been good from a boat. A little slow from the shore.  Bass are biting along the shore in spots with Crawdad or Red/Orange spoon lures.

July 13th, 2014 - Fishing has been average. Slowed from the first of the year.

June 6th, 2014 - Fishing has been good.  The Bass are spawning and I have heard reports of people doing really wall on the west side - towards the old Beer and Bait.

May 16th, 2014 - Fishing has picked up.  Trolling has been really good and the Bass are starting to bite.  I have seen a few photos of full stringers. 

April 15th, 2014 - Haven't heard much the last week on fishing.  Still a little slow.

April 7th, 2014 - Fishing has still been slow.  Few patches of decent fishing, but spotty.

March 25, 2014 - Fishing has been slow.  Not sure if it is because of an early ice off, unusually warm temps or all of the above.  Hoping for it to pick up soon.

March 15, 2014 - Fishing has been average.  We haven't had the "Big Days" like we had last year at Ice off.  I will keep you posted if it picks up soon.

February 28, 2014 - The fish have moved out and fishing has slowed a little. (Except in a boat) This means that we are probably 1-2 weeks away from spawning.  Fishing should be really good... really soon.  Keep watching for new updates.  As soon as it gets hot, I will update here.

February 22, 2014 - The Ice is now off of Minersville - Early fishing reports state the fishing has been really good.  We have sold a lot of black and green wooly buggers and small beadhead nymphs.

December 26, 2013 - Fishing reports have been average.  Some good sized fish have been caught but they times they are biting is patchy.  You may do ok for an hour or two and then it can just stop.  No reports of large quantities of fish being caught.

December 7, 2013 - Due to the recent cold streak the ice at Minersville reservoir should be safe to fish on. White and Black Jigs seem to be the most popular recently.

May 35, 2013 - Fishing has slowed down from the early rush.  Still good trolling and flies from Float Tubes or a little ways away from shore.

May 2, 2013 - Early fishing was good as soon as the ice was gone.  We haven't heard much this last week, so we assume that the fishing has slowed down a little.

March 12, 2013 - The ice is starting to come off of the edges of the lake and fishing has been good.  Woolly Buggers, Wooly Worms, Nymphs and Maribou Jigs will be a great way to start.

November 30, 2012 - Fishing is still good... Without the standard snowfall and lower temperatures, the fishing season has been extended.  Big fish are still being pulled from the south end of the lake.

June 15, 2012 - Fishing is good.  Bass have started to bite because of the recent warm weather.  Trout are doing really good from boat and average from shore.  Spinners, Spinner Bait, Silver and Gold lures and Plastic worms are the ones recommended.

May 22, 2012 - Fishing has slowed down a little after the crazy March and April.  Flies and lures are still working and fishing from a boat has still been good, but we haven't heard any stores of 50+ fish for a while.

Fishing Report for Minersville Reservoir - May 2012 -

Fishing was fantastic for a few weeks in the spring and has slowed down a little.  For a few weeks, we heard of fisherman catching upwards of 70 fish in a day.  Even though it has slowed down, the weather has been beautiful and we are expecting a good Memorial Day weekend with great conditions and some Big Catches.

Minersville Reservoir is starting to "Warm" up.  This means that the Bass are starting to bite and the trout fishing is doing good.  Some fish are being caught from shore and Boats are doing well.  Colder water is still making most fish stay a little deeper.

Fly fishing will start picking up with the arrival of warmer water.  Some Midge activity is being found so Nymphs are starting to work.

Types of Fish:  Rainbow Trout - Brown Trout - Cutthroat Trout - Smallmouth Bass - Tiger Trout

August 22nd, 2017 - Fishing is still going strong.  There is a little moss developing and it has slowed down at times during the day, but we are still hearing a good response from most of the customers that come in.  Power Bait and Worms are still the easiest baits.  Gold and Silver Lures are also working well.

July 19th, 2017 - Fishing has been good.  Most of the campgrounds are full, but the fish are still jumping.  Stocked and waiting for you.  Spinners and Rapalas for the browns.  Fish with Bait to catch the rainbows.

May 25th, 2017 - Little Reservoir was stocked today.  They added 1000 Rainbow and 248 Tiger Trout.

April 15th, 2017 - The lake has been a little slow. They are only catching a few, but they are pretty fish.  They will stock sometime in May. Usually before Memorial day.

March 18th, 2017 - You can now get to Little Res.  A little early this year.  Should be some good Brown's caught early.

May 4th, 2016 - Early fishing reports have been good.  We have heard of a few individuals catching Tiger trout.  Not sure if they stocked it.  No reports of big browns being taken yet.

February 19th, 2016 - Lake is frozen for the winter.  Ice Fishing should be decent for those willing to venture up to the lake. 

August 9th, 2015 - Fishing has been good.  Quite a few people have been catching browns.  I hear a lot of stories of them "Getting off the hook". 

June 10th, 2015 - Another big brown was caught - probably 12-14 lbs. - 28 or so inches.  Great fish.  Still waiting for customer to come in so we can get a pic.

June 26, 2014 - Fishing has been fantastic - Usually smaller fish, but they have been biting. Gold and Silver Lures, Spinners or Worms are the top baits right now.

June 11, 2014 - This lake was stocked last week.  Fishing has been really good. Weather in the morning and evening is PERFECT right now! Worms and Power Bait are always the easiest for this lake.  I have heard of a couple of Browns being caught on Brown Trout Rapalas.

May 6th, 2014 - You have been able to get to little Res for about 4 weeks now.  Ice is completely off and early fishing reports have been good.  The easiest is worms and Power Bait.  Spinners and Flies are also working well.  Small wet flies in Black, Green or Brown patterns seem to be the preferred choice right now for fly fisherman.

April 15th, 2014 - Early fishing reports have been good.   Small fish, but expecting to hear some stories of some nice browns soon.

April 7, 2014 - Ice is now off.  You can get to and fish Little Reservoir.  There are a couple spots of snow still covering the road.  You may be able to get there in a car, but we still would recommend a truck or 4 wheel drive.

December 7, 2013- Ice should be covering the reservoir and should be safe to fish on.

May 25, 2013 - Fishing has been great.  We have seen a couple of big browns caught. (See them in the Photo Gallery.) Green and Rainbow Power Bait and Worms seem to be the best method of fishing.

May 2, 2013 - The lake is now completely free of ice and has been available for fishing the last few days.  Early fisherman at this lake usually do really well. 

September 5, 2012 - Fishing has slowed down for Little Reservoir.  The moss has been taking over the lake because of warm weather and pollution from cabins above the reservoir.  Bait fishing isn't too bad, but we recommend taking the time to drive to Kent's, Anderson Meadow or Lebaron... All three have been doing well.

May 22, 2012 - Little Reservoir was stocked last week and the fishing has been really good.  I took some friends up and we caught ten fish in just over an hour.  Great place to take the kids.  Panther Martin's, Jakes Lures and Bait fishing seeming to be the right combination for these fish.

If you are going after the browns, make sure and have some Rapala's on hand.

April 18th, 2012 - Little Reservoir is now open!  As of April 16th, the ice has melted enough for fishing.  The road is accessible and a majority of ice has melted over the last 4 or 5 days. Fishing reports have been great!  Very few people have been up there so far.

Some Browns have been caught and a few of decent size.  Fishing should be amazing for the next few weeks as the fish are anxious to see the sun.

Recommended:  Rapala's, Spinners, Lures, Live Bait, Power Bait (Silver and Gold in lures and spinners. Rainbow or Brown trout Rapalas)

Lower Kents Lake - Tushar reservoir

The first month when Lower Kents lake is open is the best time to fish and catch some beautiful trout.  This lake has a tendency to get mossy during the latter summer months. 

There is a large Campground at Tushar Lake (Lower Kents) with a beautiful scenery of the Tushar area.  You are within minutes of multiple other lakes from this area.

May 20th, 2015 - I hear the gate is still closed - I am guessing it will open soon.  Maybe for this upcoming weekend.

April 18, 2015 - The gate is closed, you can still park below and walk up.  Should be good fishing right now.  This is a great lake to catch some beautiful Cutthroat.

May 22, 2012 - Kent's lake and Upper Kent's are now open.  Access going beyond Upper Kent's is still closed.  We have heard that they are trying to get it open before the upcoming Memorial Day Weekend.
