MANILA, Utah — A search is underway for a fisherman whose boat was found partially underwater in Flaming Gorge Reservoir.

Deputies from Daggett County, Utah, say they've called in their search and rescue team to look for the fisherman after his boat was reported about 6 p.m. Sunday in the Jug Hollow area.

Officials say there were high winds and treacherous waters at the reservoir Sunday.

Deputies say they believe the boater was alone at the time. He's described as a Wyoming resident, but authorities didn't give additional information about him.
