Middle Provo River Fly Fishing

The section of the Provo River as it flows out of Jordanelle Reservoir is known as the “Middle Provo”. The Middle Provo is the closest stretch of the Provo River to Park City, a mere 15 minutes away flowing through the scenic Heber Valley. Like the Lower Provo River, the Middle Provo is a dam release or “tail water” river which offers more consistent flows and temperatures making for rich aquatic insect life. Stoneflies, Mayflies, and Caddis all hatch in abundance throughout the Middle Provo as well as ever present midges and sow bugs. With such an abundant food source, fish densities are very high on the Middle Provo with some estimates at over 3,000 fish per mile! Primarily a brown trout fishery, the Middle Provo is also home to rainbow and cutthroat trout especially in the lower reaches closer to Deer Creek Reservoir. The Middle Provo River is part of the Provo River Restoration Project. To learn more about this project go here http://www.mitigationcommission.gov/prrp/prrp.html.

Part of the project was to create public access throughout the Heber Valley. While this area of the Provo River can be crowed, those anglers willing to hike a bit from the designated parking areas will be rewarded with a quieter river corridor. White Dog offers Full and half day trips on the Middle Provo.
