Fishing limit temporarily increased to eight at Spring Lake in Payson
PAYSON, Utah — The daily fishing limit has been increased at Spring Lake ahead of scheduled repairs that require the lake to be drained.
Through March 18, 2022, the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources will allow anglers to catch and keep eight fish at the community fishing pond in Payson. The previous daily limit was two fish.
“We’d like anglers to be able to harvest these fish, so they aren’t wasted,” DWR Sportfish Coordinator Randy Oplinger said. “We hope people can get out and catch a lot of these fish before the pond is drained.”
Available fish found at Spring Lake include rainbow trout, wiper, brook trout, tiger trout, largemouth bass, bluegill, and carp. There is currently no limit on the number of carp an angler can remove from Spring Lake.
Effective today, the daily fishing limit has increased to eight fish at Spring Lake in Payson. This change will allow anglers to catch and keep more fish before the city drains the lake to make necessary repairs. Learn more: https://t.co/AP3OvnAz3V pic.twitter.com/er8hVdeZUe

The DWR said that once the repairs are complete and the pond is refilled with water, it will be restocked with rainbow trout, channel catfish, largemouth bass, bluegill, and wiper.
The increased fishing limit at Spring Lake will end on March 18, 2022.
