Park City Fly Fishing

Park City may have the greatest snow on earth, but the town isn’t just for skiers. When the snow melts, all those steep ski runs turn into dusty single tracks for mountain bikers and trail runners.

Plus, all that melted snow needs to go somewhere. By May, all that powder becomes some of the most beautiful and pristine rivers in the Wasatch Range. Flies and larva begin to hatch and fly fishing season is in full swing in Park City.

Blue Ribbon Fly Fishing

A short cast away from downtown Park City are two of the fishiest rivers in the Rockies. The Provo River carves right through the Heber Valley and rolls down Provo Canyon. Across the valley, the Weber River connects the Echo and Rockport reservoirs. Both of these are blue ribbon fisheries: quality fly fishing locations where the state ensures that the water is plentiful, the shores are accessible, and the fish keep jumping. Both Provo and Weber rivers maintain a high number of large fish per mile.

Still Water Fly Fishing

If streams and eddies aren’t part of your fly fishing game, then hit the still water in a float tube or pontoon. The nearby reservoirs — Strawberry, Echo, Rockport, and Jordanelle — are stocked with fish and ready for the season. It’s common to hear about local anglers pulling in 25+ inch monsters from some of these lakes. Come try out still water fly fishing near Park City, and go home with your own big fish story.

Plus, if you’re traveling in from out of town, any number of the local guide and gear shops can help you find a prime fly fishing spot.
