Utah Cuttslam Chapter 3 - Bonneville

An Dinh

Most of the places to catch Bonneville cutthroat around Salt Lake are small streams with small trout.

Little Dell has some fine specimens in the low double digits.  Since there is a fee to fish this Reservoir it does keep the fishing pressure low. 

I've had the best luck fishing small leeches with a tiny 18-20 nymph.  Sometimes they chase the streamer then turn and eat the nymph. 

I'm frequently surprised to find a fish on the line because the takes are very subtle.  Keeping a tight line helps. 

I tried fishing some of the small creeks nearby for my Bonnie but they were very gloomy with ultra spooky itty bitty fish that wriggled free before I could net them. 

Emerging from the narrow canyons to fish the wide open Little Dell lifted my spirits and landed me a nice Bonneville cutthroat for the slam.
