Deer Creek
Well I'm new to Utah just moved last year and I love fishing deer creek, but the water levels are so high and there are so many people boating out there... Any ideas for when the water levels are going to go down and days to go to avoid the crowds?

It's summer, there will be more people. Avoid the weekends. I've only been there once, but there should be less people during the week.


Education is important but fishing is importanter.

This time of the year I fish the Wallsberg arm more. There are still plenty of people but at least the entire arm is wakeless so that you don't have to deal with people kicking up an endless afternoon of wakes. Also there is every kind of fish in there so whatever you want to chase is there if you can find them.

Bass fishing DC at daybreak in the summer is my favorite kind of fishing. The smallies are thick and the action is fast.

And once in a while you do catch something worthwhile.

Give a man a fish and he's fed for a day. Teach a man to fish and he'll spend his life squinting at invisible thread.

Even on the weekend, if you get up there at 5-5:30 AM, you can fish pretty much unmolested till 10:30ish. The major number of the power squadron don't get up early and you can get some quality fishing time in before they get on the water. You have to fight them to get your boat off the water, but the fishing is worth it.

As far a water levels, I hope they maintain this as long as they can, lots of good fishing on the flat in the north end of the lake. Unfortunately, they will start drawing the lake down here shortly and it will go down fast. Enjoy it while you can !!!

Amazingly they are drawing more water from Jordanelle this year. So far Jordanelle has dropped about five feet while Deer Creek is only down about two feet so far.

If they keep it this way there will be some good fishing into August this year.

Actually they are releasing about 75% of normal from Jordanelle. Normal summer flow is about 450 cfs, current flows are 350 cfs.

According to the CUWCD Jordanelle out flows haven't dropped below 500 CFS yet this year. While Deer Creek is at just over 580 CFS.

But I must admit that I have seen when there data is flawed so take it for what it is worth,
