Fish Creek

Though it will take a little more than hour to get to Fish Lake from Marysvale, the 75-mile drive will seem short after anglers find easy fishing for rainbows and perch or maybe a big lake trout. Jigs typically work year round for perch whether through the ice or in the shallows in the summer. A variety of lures, flies and baits will work for rainbows. Lake trout hang out in deeper water often hitting large jigs tipped fish meat at 60 to 95 feet.

Beaver Creek

For moving water near Marysvale, head west out of town on the dirt road that parallels Beaver Creek. This is good fly water and a great place to drift bait. Rainbows and cutthroat will take these offerings, making it an easy place to introduce youngsters to fishing. The creek runs through beautiful Fishlake National Forest and is regularly stocked with hatchery rainbows.

Sevier River

The Sevier River is a popular option near Marysvale as it runs right through the area. The 10-mile canyon stretch can fish well.The canyon provides a narrow rocky channel and a high stream gradient that results in good habitat for browns, rainbows, cutthroat and even smallmouth bass.

Bullion Creek

For a good hike-in creek, try Bullion Creek to get away from the crowds. Bullion is a rainbow and cutthroat producer that regularly sees fresh rainbows thanks to the Utah Division Of Wildlife Resources in the lower reaches. Adventurous anglers willing to hike a bit will find aggressive trout that will smash dry flies.
