Little Bear River Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The Little Bear River starts at the confluence of the South Fork Little Bear and East Fork Little Bear near the town of Avon. The artificial-only section between Porcupine Reservoir and Avon is the most heavily fished. The portion of the river from Avon to Hyrum Reservoir is mostly private property. The river is accessed via Highway 165 south out of Hyrum. Just south of Avon, a road runs along the river to Porcupine Reservoir.
During low water, royal coachmans, renegades, and other attractor patterns work well. Some caddis hatches can provide fast fishing. The area below the dam offers good fishing during the runoff period with bead-head nymphs and San Juan worms. During the summer, terrestrial patterns like grasshoppers, ants, and beetles are a good choice. Key Species: Rainbow trout, cutthroat trout, and brown trout."
