Where to Go Fly Fishing in Park City, Utah

The Provo and Weber Rivers are both classified as “blue ribbon fisheries.” That means that the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources biologists and the Advisory Council determined that these bodies of water adhere to some strict guidelines. It’s a fancy way of saying that they are excellent fishing spots for anglers. Provo River is closer to town than the Weber, as it’s just a short drive from Deer Mountain Resort. If you’d prefer casting your line from a boat or inner tube, head to the Jordanelle Reservoir. It’s well-stocked with fish during the warm months and is a summertime hotspot for locals and visitors alike.
