Fishing in Utah, A brief look

Utah fishing is some of the best the West has to offer and is known for its brown trout fishing. The major trout fishing waters are along the broad belt running north to south down the center of the state. Bear Lake is northeast of Logan, high in the mountains, and is famous for its cisco fishing- unique to the lake. Now with the advent of fish finders, anglers are no longer using dip nets off the shores but rather identifying piles of rocks in 50- 60 feet off of Ideal Beach Resort, also known as Sweetwater. While Bear Lake anglers may be jigging for trout in the winter they may inadvertently snag a cisco, especially around January.

Another popular Utah fishing destination is Fish Lake. Fishing guides will be able to show anglers the lake's famous 'mack runs' where large brown trouts are taken just after the ice-out and again in November. Fly fishing in Fish Lake is also popular along the lake's east side. The natural lakes of the Uinta Mountain area are also popular amongst Utah fishing guides and anglers. There are many lakes in the Uinta area and some are rather rural so it's always advised to hire a licensed fishing guide. Uinta anglers will find brook trout, cutthroat trout and even Arctic-grayling fishing or if you're lucky, a golden trout in these mountain waters. The Mirror Lake, east of Kamas, is the best place to book a fishing guide or other fishing outfitter.
