For many families in Utah, fishing on Memorial Day weekend is a family tradition.

As this year's weekend nears, Drew Cushing, warm water sport fisheries coordinator for the Division of Wildlife Resources, said there are waters throughout the state that are easy to access and have large numbers of healthy fish.

In Northern Utah, now is a great time to fish from shore for bluegill and largemouth bass at Mantua Reservoir. Cushing said these fish are in shallow water right now and they're very aggressive, so they'll keep biting for a couple of weeks after Memorial Day. The reservoir is ringed by a gravel dike that provides easy access to fishing spots.
