Good Lehi Fishing Spot – Oak Hollow Largemouth Bass
This Lehi fishing spot turned out to be a good little place for largemouth bass and bluegill. I’ve fished here in Lehi on oak hollow in the past years ago, and didn’t find much success. It’s full of grass, and it looks like now there is a nice population of bluegills and largemouth bass. My friend @reelingrainbow turned me onto it. Here are the baits, a map, and the fishing conditions I experienced to help you catch a few fish out of this place. In addition, some of the good fishing I was able to film, so you can get a personal glimpse of what it’s like.
The conditions were nice for fishing this place in Lehi. This trip transpired on a Thursday morning before work in the first week of June. Here’s what it was like for me. If you find yourself in similar conditions, I’ve often found the same types of baits and techniques work across a lot of different places.
Air Temperature High 80’s. Partly Cloudy Skies
Stained. Visbility 4-5 feet.
64 – 67 degrees.
0 – 4 mph. Flat Calm all morning.
I tried quite a few different styles of baits on this spot, but only two seemed to produce consistently. The grass was thick and deep, so it cut a lot of other options out of the mix. The following two baits seemed to work around the grass well, and drew a lot of strikes. Here’s the details of the baits, and how to use them to help you catch fish at this place in Lehi.
Megabass Pop X
The Megabass Pop-x was a rockstar bait for catching bass out of this spot. This little bait caught the majority of the fish. It worked best in the early mornining low light conditions. The key was to cast it along the bank on the edge of the cover, and just slowly pop it back. The pop-x is really light, and works best on a spinning rod and reel set up. It also helped to use Floating braided line to keep your line from sinking down into the gunk.
The Baby Bass Zoom Fluke also caught some fish. This bait worked when the sun came out, and the fish weren’t chasing as much. When you rig a zoom fluke weigthless texas style with a 4/0 hook, you keep your bait clean from the shallow grass. This weightless style rigging with this lighter bait helps you to get into those tough to reach spots, and keeps your bait looking natural. This is a light set up and works best on a spinning rod and reel. Check out other great rigging options for the fluke in my best fluke rigs post. This is a great bait for pond fishing in the summertime.

Good Lehi Fishing Spot Video – Finding Largemouth Bass
Check out the video below of me out on this good Lehi fishing spot chasing largemouth bass. It was a fun morning of fishing, and I honestly didn’t know what to expect. It was pleasantly surprising to find such a sweet little spot in an urban setting with some decent fishing in it. With some luck, you can catch fish here yourself on these same techniques illustrated in this video bass fishing Lehi. Get out and get “Kraken” Bass!
Additional Fishing Insights
Honestly, there were a lot more bluegills in the pond than largemouth bass from what I saw in here. I caught about a dozen bass in a few hours of fishing this spot. The majority of the fish I caught were small. Although, I did see a couple bigger late spawning largemouth bass. There was a group of 3 big largemouth probably in the 3.5 – 4.5 pound class fighting over a spawning spot I couldn’t get to bite. All the fish were really shallow on the inside between the thick grass and the bank. I spoke to a local, who was on the bank fishing. He said, “The biggest I’ve caught out of here was 3.5 pounds.” It really is a cool little urban spot worth your time to try your luck.

How big were the bluegills – worth keeping, or catfood size?
All sizes. The bluegill were spawning on beds on the gravel points in areas.
The last time I tried to fish there I saw no trespassing signs right where you parked, were those removed?
I didn’t see any there. There are some down on the train tracks.
What was the bank access like? Thinking about taking the fly rod down there for some popper action.
Not super awesome, but there where a few spots you could haul a fly rod down too.
I have been checking out this pond to see if it was legal to fish. I checked with Mr. Dak Maxfield the properties manager for Staker- Parson the people who are the owners of the pond. I was told that no one has permission to fish the pond. I wish we could get the permission in writing to fish the pond. If you have a way to fish with out getting in to trouble I would appreciate anything You can do to help me with this problem.
