GARDEN CITY — For the first time in 24 years, you might feel a rainbow trout tugging on your fishing line at Bear Lake.

The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources stocked about 5,000 rainbows in the lake in late May and will stock about 5,000 more of the fish before the July 4 weekend.

The rainbow trout — which are about 10 inches long when stocked — are sterile rainbows that can't reproduce.

Because a limited number of sterile rainbows are available this year, and because Bear Lake is a large lake, it would be difficult for anglers to catch them if the fish were stocked in several places. For that reason, all of the 10,000 fish will be stocked at one place — the Bear Lake State Park Marina near Garden City.

Scott Tolentino, UDWR aquatic project leader at Bear Lake, said the rainbows will feed mostly on terrestrial insects that blow onto the surface of the water.

"They should be readily available for just about anyone who has a fishing rod," he said. "Both shoreline and boat anglers should find good success."

Good methods to catch the rainbows with include using Powerbait, worms, flies or lures, such as small spinners and spoons.
