Bass fishing around Ogden, UT right now...

Visiting family in Utah for a few weeks and my nephew is getting into fishing. Wanting to take him out on my dad's canoe (with my dad's vintage gear because I didn't bring anything!) and get him on some bass. Thinking of going to Pineview but not sure about water levels and where the smallies might be right now. Any tips on Pineview or any other nearby spots? Considered Mantua or Willard too, but never done much fishing here in UT.

Just saw this! Pineview is hot for fishing right now but the water is sooo low. Like 42% capacity low. Being in a canoe will be a little hard as it gets very busy with boats. There are some no wake zones in the canyon where you can catch smallies. 

Mantua is a safer option but its thick with grass right now. Plenty of fish to still be caught, especially early early morning. Hyrum is also decent but a long paddle in canoe to get to the far eastern side of the lake away from boaters.

Thanks for the info and response! I ended up taking the nephew to Mantua on Thursday, then my dad and I hit Pineview on Friday. Had success both days! At Mantua, my nephew caught his first largemouth, I caught a handful, and we had a great time. My dad and I caught a bunch of smallies at Pineview, and I caught a 36" tiger muskie that jumped out of our small net before we could lift it into the canoe...bummed, but a great fight. Saw a boat lose its prop going over that really shallow bar on the east side...dangerously low over there. Hoping to get out again this week!
