The walleye fishing is picking up at Keyhole Reservoir. Wyoming

By CHRISTINE PETERSON Star-Tribune staff writer

The walleye fishing is picking up at Keyhole Reservoir. Anglers should try using minnows and jigs dropped in 20 to 30 feet of water. Large, plastic, swim baits are also catching fish.
When fishermen can find crappie, they are between 10 and 13 inches long and healthy.

Water levels in Glendo Reservoir are rising as the weather cools. Anglers are catching walleye in about 20 to 25 feet of water. As a rule of thumb, when the water is rising, try fishing in the shallow areas. The cooler water temperatures should move the baitfish which will help the walleye fishing.
Try fishing by jigging plastics or spoons and using live minnows.
Walleye fishing on Pathfinder Reservoir is good and the trout fishing is excellent. Anglers should use crankbaits and worm harnesses.

Fishing on the North Fork of the Shoshone River is good as trout move to smaller flies. Try using brown caddis, gray drakes, tarantulas and parachute Adams. To increase your chances, drop Bloody Marys, Wade’s North Fork Specials and chubby cousins.
Fishing is good on the Lower Shoshone River with reduced flows. Try fishing with trudes, yellow Sallys’, BWOs and black caddis in the evening. Drop sow bugs below a dry fly or an indicator. When the dry fly action slows, try using streamers.

The fishing has been a little slow on Flaming Gorge Reservoir. Rain and cooler temperatures are keeping many anglers off of the lake, but the rainbow trout and small lake trout are still biting. Anglers fishing from shore should use night crawlers.
