     Lower Bells
I've been researching Lower Bells, and it looks like a great place to fish. Lots of nice Bonneville cutthroats that are easy to catch. I have been thinking about doing a trip.

The Twins have been doing great there. 100s of cutts have been caught. Anyone else have some more info on the place?

It is a small hike in and artificial flies and lures, as well as catch and release.



Here are some of the posts and pictures that I found about it:

I know that the Twins don't mind posting about Lower Bells even though it is small, because they said so in another forum. Well, here is what they said when some others objected about such a small place:

":I wish this would have been in the confidential section."


Why? The place is C&R and artificial flys and lures afterall. I doubt the majority of anglers would wanna hike anyway, although yes there are a few that would be willing.

What are you guys afraid there would be "other people" fishing there when you go up there or something?

Like so many others....Amen


Gotta agree with TyeDye here...what's the big deal? Do you really think 3,000 people are gonna head there this weekend? Sorry but I believe that this thread is not worthy of the confindential section. Even if I did put it in the confidential section it woulda ended up on BFT anyway...where it would get way more views than this site. By the sounds of your complaints it sounds to me like we finally stumbled upon some "quality" fisheries. Hey....these places are Catch and Release, no bait allowed locations, so I am sure the fish are still swimming around for you and the rest of us to catch.
When all the Largemouth Bass and Smallmouth Bass in Utah are gone....you can blame me.

Why don't you go do your own research up there? No need to hash and re hash stuff. Just go fish it...If its good give us a report!

Whoa buddy! You are violating a major fourm rule here!

Hotspotting-
When a poster of a new thread does not wish to ID a certain body of water, NO MEMBER will reply giving the name of that body of water. In the same regard, if a member wants to post all the details on a spot they fished....they can do so without being harassed for hot spotting as long as the fish were caught in a legal manner and no laws were broken.

If someone chooses to ignore this rule and post the name anyway or harasses a member for making the post, their post will be edited with a PM sent warning them that what they did is not allowed. If that member chooses to ignore the warning, then it will be grounds for banning that member.

What the hell is your big problem Cpierce? The mods should ban people like you for out right breaking the forum rules. You have so many posts on here that you should know better than to do something like this. You not only hottspotted a recent post, but you also dragged on posts from a different website as well as used MY PHOTOS WITHOUT PREMISSION!

Considering you are from the Idaho board what you are doing is coming over to a Utah Board and trying to outright start up controversy. If that aint a rule on here it should be. Cpierce I hope for this little stunt that you have lost some respect from the other members on here.

How do you figure she is doing something wrong? Did you tell her where "your secret waters" are? Maybe she just found this post YOU made.
I don't see her doing anything wrong.

So I take it, this is your special fly fishing spot????

That is pretty low wishing she lost respect. This is a whole new post. No one put the two together until you "Outed your secret"

I agree, that is pretty scary. Small body of water, or a small parking lot. Even if they are public waters, not everybody knows about them and that is good, right?

But sadly, post enough about it and someone will figure it out. I must be pretty slow, cause it took a bunch of pm's to me before I knew this was the secret spot.

But, my lips are sealed.

But if you go to search, type in Lower Bells, then type in TyeDyeTwins in name...BINGO, there is this report with pictures. YOU tied the 100 fish and the other report to the name, not C.

I told you, he is fishing, and HFT has been missing in action, but you might have bought a time out for that one. Just guessing mind you.

This down right sucks! I have been going here for 8 years! This place is too fragile, and too small for any type of pressure. I don't go because fishing is great, because 90% of the time it downright sucks. But rather to get exersize and enjoy the cool breeze.

Good thing officer friendly regulars this place to give poaching tickets. If you plan to hit this spot to keep fish be prepared for a ticket! This is artificial only, and to be honest most of the fish are too small to justify a meal. So stay away!

I personally have turned in 5 different people for using bait or poaching so be WARNED lurkers. I have met several regulars and I just put the feelers out there to get them to police this tiny pond heavy the next few weeks.

Thanks for the big laugh. LaughLaughLaugh
Seriously most people will do the hike once and never return. I give out plenty of hints and lately even posted GPS coordinates on the way in to some of my favorite spots because like Lower Bells too many fish and it starts to stunts. Catching several dozen fish an hour is fun but if your not getting at least a few over 20 inches it starts to get old real quick.
Hey FG I just noticed you weren't a moderator any more. Don't blame you but when did you drop that?
