Catch Dinner When you Drop a Line in Utah

Park City Fishing

Fishing in Park City is an excellent way to spend a spring, summer, or fall day as we wait patiently for the winter snow to blanket the mountains. Though fly fishing can be arranged year-round, many of our guests prefer warmer weather seasons to catch our fish out of our crystal clear rivers and streams.

Fly fishing is very popular on the Provo River and the Weber River for their trout populations and can be fished year-round. Brown and rainbow trout are found in the Strawberry River but this river is recommended for the more experienced angler but the Strawberry Reservoir, near Park City, is a popular fishing spot for cutthroat and rainbow trout, as well as kokanee salmon and welcomes fly, spin, and ice fishing. Another excellent fishing area is the flatwater Jordanelle Reservoir swimming with trout, smallmouth bass, and perch or you’ll find these same fish in the Rockport Reservoir.

Licenses are required for anglers over the age of 12 but can be purchased online or even downloaded onto your smartphone. There are a variety of licenses available depending on how many days you plan to fish and if you’re a resident or nonresident.

There are plenty of guided tour companies and equipment rental options in Park City, including:

Many of these companies provide all of your gear and instructions and some even include picking up a fishing license for you or include lunch and beverages. Trips often last about four hours to start or you can pick full-day adventures and you should come prepared with sun protection, water, and proper clothing.
