Fishing The Jordan River
Over the last several years many efforts have been made to improve and clean up the Jordan River and restore this river as one of Utah’s urban fisheries. The Jordan River is one of Utah’s three major tributaries. The river begins its journey at Utah Lake a travels through several cities, wetlands and industrial areas, before finally ending up at the Great Salt Lake.
The river offers several areas for outdoor recreation and fishing opportunities. Along its banks are several parks, Golf courses, and the Jordan River Parkway trail. The river offers the chance to land Channel Catfish, Bullheads, White Bass, Walleye, Carp and even Trout. With the several species of fish you never know what you might catch. We spent the day fishing where the river flows out of Utah Lake. Using worms we landed over 30 Bullhead Catfish and several White Bass. The fast action made the trip exciting for all, especially the kids. So next time you find yourself close by the Jordan River take your rod and worms and see what you can hook into. Please help with the cleanup efforts of this river by packing out your trash. Remember this river flows through our town, backyards and parks.
