Ferron Reservoir. Fishing is fair. Water is starting to clear up.
Gigliotti Pond. The pond is stocked with rainbow trout. This is a great place for families to fish with a lot of success, officials say. Jake’s lures tend to work well. Flyfishing with a renegade has proven successful. Due to its location at the mouth of the canyon, conditions can be windy.
