Weber River Fly Fishing

The Weber River is another blue ribbon trout fishery within 15 minutes of the Park City area. Similar in size to the Provo River, the “Weeb” as it is referred to by locals, is a great alternative in the middle of the summer when the crowds on the Provo River increase. The Weber River flows through scenic rural Utah farmland meandering through large undercuts, deep pools and productive riffles. Although mostly flowing through private land, the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources has implemented a public access program for anglers in cooperation with local land owners. Fish densities on the Weber River are not quite as high as the Provo, but there are enough fish to keep any angler happy including some 25” plus trophy brown trout! Rainbow and cutthroat trout are also found on the Weber River and in certain sections can be caught in good numbers. Mountain Whitefish aka “the rocky mountain tarpon” also reside in high numbers on this stretch and can keep your rod bent. This river has very large caddis hatches and they hatch in abundance. There are also mayflies, stoneflies, midges, sow bugs and scuds to keep the trout well fed. Nymphing is the preferred technique, but dry fly fishing the Mothers Day caddis hatch or the late summer “hoppers” will get some of the Weber River’s bigger brown trout looking to the surface for a quick meal. White Dog offers full and half day trips on the Weber River. It is possible to fish both the Provo and Weber rivers on a full day trip to experience the great diversity of Utah fishing.
