It’s been more than a month since the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources stocked Don's and Hidden lakes in the La Sal Mountains with more than 700 rainbow trout. Kens Lake and Rattlesnake Ranch Pond, as well as several others on the La Sal Mountains, have been stocked with several thousand rainbow trout this year.

The fish averaged about 10 inches long, according to a DWR report. Officials recommend using worms, PowerBait or spinners to catch them

In the Abajo Mountains, Dark Canyon Lake, Monticello Lake, Lloyds Lake and Blanding Reservoir Nos. 3 and 4 have all been stocked with rainbow trout that average about 10 inches long. Anglers have had success catching pike at Recapture Reservoir using gold Jake’s lures.
