Utah offers over a 1000 fishable lakes and streams as well as blue ribbon fisheries such as the Green River. Utah fishing is open year around. Species range from the popular rainbow and cutthroat to large mackinaw and Brown trout to striped bass, walleye, bluegill, whitefish, the Bonneville cisco and many others.
Most fishing lure companies offer a variety of different sizes, colors, and weights. For example, my favorite fishing lure is the Panther Martin, which are made to target different species of fish. With so many options to choose from, how do you know which one to purchase? More Information!
When it comes to the fishing community there are many different viewpoints on whether or not you should harvest the fish you catch. So, the question is, should you keep the fish you catch and is keeping fish going to hurt the resource? More Information!
Fall fishing is one of the best times of year to fish one of Utah’s many reservoirs and lakes. Just like all animals, fish also prepare for winter and cruise the shorelines actively feeding. This is perfect opportunity for shore anglers to increase their fishing success. More Information!
First ice fishing trip of the season spent on Scofield Reservoir. The ice was 10 to 11 inches thick in the narrows by the dam. I fished in 27 feet of water and caught several Cutthroat Trout about a foot or so off the bottom. The bait I used is from the Maniac Custom Lures Company. More Information!
Locating the fish under a large expanse of ice is one of the biggest challenges for most ice fisherman. Are they in a few feet of water, or 50 feet of water? Are they cruising just below the ice or hugging the bottom? And let's not forget the struggle of what they are biting on? More Information!
The Utah ice fishing season will soon be in full swing. Whether targeting cutthroats at Strawberry, pike at Yuba, or crappie at Pineview, winter can provide some of the hottest fishing around. More Information!
The first snow has fallen and the nightly temperatures have dipped below freezing, and Utah’s Ice Fishing Season is just around the corner. If you’re anything like me the anticipation of the first fishable ice starts in late November. This is the time to dust off the ice fishing gear, sharpen the auger blades, and wait for the opportunity to fish the first ice. More Information!
Wintertime in Utah usually signals the start of ice fishing season. Saved for the handful of dedicated anglers, fly fishing in the icy months of the year is often overlooked. Which is interesting, since winter fly fishing can offer some of the best success for Utah anglers. More Information!
This ice off fishing adventure began with a trip to Echo Reservoir and ended at Deer Creek reservoir. The day started out beautiful at Echo. The reservoir was completely ice free, but the fishing was slow. So, we got back in the car and made our way to Deer Creek. This was a good choice as we were able to catch one beautiful Brown Trout and a Rainbow Trout. We missed several others, but the action was fairly consistent. Besides the wind at times the unseasonably warm day was beautiful. More Information!
I’ve wanted to see what the hubbub was about Redington’s latest offering. The kind folks over there at Redington sent me a rod to test out a few weeks ago, and I spent a lot of hours on the river, testing the rod as much as I could. So let’s see how it performed, shall we? More Information!
