DWR Remind Public of Regulations During Kokanee Run

The state Division of Wildlife Resources is reminding anglers that regulations for fishing kokanee salmon have changed this year. Anglers are not allowed to keep kokanee salmon from September 10th through November 30th to protect the salmon during their spawn. The salmon spawn in several streams throughout Utah during the fall months after four years of maturing in reservoirs downstream. Sheep Creek near Manila is considered one of the most scenic kokanee runs in the state.
