This might be a good time to review the old fishing rules and find the new ones that apply this year or have been allowed recently. Here is the complete list of rules for fishing in UT during 2017-2018. https://wildlife.utah.gov/guidebooks/2017_pdfs/2017_fishing_low.pdf I have added a few more rules that apply to Lake Powell: This is a new rule that was allowed on Jan 1, 2017: Pilot study on using corn as bait: Starting in 2017, you may use corn as bait at the following waterbodies: Cutler Reservoir, Deer Creek Reservoir, Electric Lake, Fish Lake, Flaming Gorge, Lake Powell, Stateline Reservoir and Utah Lake. Please keep in mind that this change does not allow anglers to violate Utah’s chumming or littering laws. For more information, see page 13. •Dead striped bass from Lake Powell may be used as bait or chum only in Lake Powell. If you are under age 12 or have a valid Utah fishing or combination license, you can fish with two poles at any water in the state during its open fishing season. You may keep only one daily limit of fish. Using a second pole does NOT allow you to keep two daily limits of fish. Lake Powell: To fish across the state line at Lake Powell, any person with a valid Utah fishing license— either resident or nonresident—may fish any portion of Lake Powell, including the Arizona portion, without any additional permits or licenses. A person with an Arizona license will still need to purchase and possess a valid Utah reciprocal permit to fish in the Utah waters of Lake Powell. Arizona residents may obtain a Utah reciprocal fishing permit at wildlife.utah.gov and from Division offices and license agents that sell Utah fishing licenses. As long as you are legally fishing the Utah portion of Lake Powell, you may use two fishing poles without any additional permits. •Dead mountain sucker, white sucker, Utah sucker, redside shiner, speckled dace, mottled sculpin, fathead minnow, Utah chub and common carp may be used as bait in any water where bait is permitted. You may only use live crayfish for bait if you are on the water where the crayfish were captured. It is unlawful to transport live crayfish away from the water where they were captured. You may use commercially prepared and chemically treated baitfish or their parts as bait in any water where bait is permitted. In 2013, the Utah Legislature passed a new law that allows anglers to dispose of carp and a few other species—particularly species under catch-and-kill orders at certain waterbodies— without violating the state’s wasting statute. If you visit any of the following waters and catch any of the species listed for those waters, you may dispose of them: Lake Powell: striped bass If you have questions on fishing rules post them here and I will answer or get help from those that know more about other waters.
