Lower Provo River Fly Fishing

The section of the Provo River that flows from Deer Creek Reservoir is referred to as the “Lower Provo”. Like the Middle Provo River, this section is also a “Tail Water“ with high fish densities, and amazing blue wing olive and PMD mayfly hatches. Caddis and stoneflies also hatch on this section but sow bugs and scuds play a large part in the diet of the trophy brown trout and rainbow trout of the lower Provo. While the dry fly fishing can be quite good, nymphing is the preferred technique to hook into some of these river “hogs”. Sight fishing in the gin clear water to some of these monster trout can be challenging, but the reward can be the fish of a lifetime. A major UDOT construction project recently completed has moved HWY 189 away from this section of the Provo river. With a close proximity to the Wasatch front, this has helped to spread out some of the crowds on the lower Provo and made for a quieter more enjoyable day on the river. White Dog offers full and half day trips on the Lower Provo. Combine both sections of the Provo River on a full day trip for an incredible day of fly fishing on some of the rocky mountain’s most productive blue ribbon trout water!
