Fishing in Utah

Fly Fishing

Utah is well known for excellent trout fishing in high mountain lakes and streams. Fewer people know the state offers a wide variety of other exciting fishing opportunities, including trophy lake trout that weigh in at over 40 pounds, ferocious tiger muskie, striped bass so plentiful they have removed the limit, unique and hard-fighting wipers, plus quality waters for walleye, largemouth, smallmouth, white bass, perch, crappie, channel catfish and several other species. Fishing is open year-round on most waters. Proclamations (rules) are available at all Wildlife Resources offices and many local stores and visitor information outlets.
