Northern Pike in Utah Lake
The Utah Division of Wildlife resources is asking that anglers kill and turn in any northern pikes caught in Utah Lake during 2016. This is being done in as an effort to further protect the endangered June sucker. If you catch a Northern Pike, please follow these steps:
- Keep the fish and kill it.
- Record the date and location where you caught the northern pike — include GPS coordinates if possible.
- Bring the fish to the Utah Lake State Park Office at 4400 W. Center Street in Provo or to DWR’s Central Region Office at 1115 N. Main St. in Springville on weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
- If you can’t take the fish to the office, place the pike in your freezer at home. Then, call DWR at 801-491-5678 and a DWR biologist will make arrangements to get the fish from you.
