Bear River Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"When the Bear River enters Utah at the Idaho state line, it is a far different water than it was at its start in the Uinta Mountains. By the time it passes near Cornish, the Bear is murky, warm, and slow-moving. Fishing is for warm-water species, primarily channel and bullhead catfish. Because much of the land surrounding the river is private property, the best way to fish the river is by canoe. There are some access points for shore anglers at bridges. Key Species: Channel catfish, bullhead catfish, walleye, crappie, and largemouth bass.
A ramp is located on the Bear near Amalga where Highway 218 crosses the river. A popular place to launch is below Cutler Reservoir Dam. Other possible entries can be found in Riverside and Corrine. Eventually, the river dumps into the Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge."
