Navajo Lake Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The scenery and cool high alpine setting is the big draw at Navajo Lake, a popular place for southern Utah and Las Vegas residents to escape the heat. The turquoise blue water is beautiful. Facilities are plentiful with a boat ramp, two commercial lodges, and three Forest Service campgrounds located on the shoreline. Key Species: Rainbow trout, brook trout, and splake.

Fishing Index: Planted rainbow trout in the 10-to 14-inch range are the staple here, though an occasional brook or larger splake can be caught. The lake is big enough for trolling with lures such as needlefish, Triple Teazers, flatfish, and Z-Rays being quite effective. Many anglers fish from the easily accessible shoreline with traditional baits such as Power Bait or worms. Biologists say some fly fishing is also possible on the west end of the lake, especially on still evenings. Again, with the scenery this pretty, catching fish is a bonus. Angling here is spotty, but patience is rewarded."
