Dark Canyon Lake Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Welcome to Utah, the second-driest state in the nation. Now grab a rod and hit the water, because despite its lack of precipitation, the Beehive State offers an incredible amount of angling opportunity. Fisheries were serendipitously created all over the state as Utahns built reservoirs to store precious water.

Dark Canyon is stocked with rainbows and also has a healthy population of brook trout. Bait fishing is best during the hottest times of the day. Spinners work well in the late morning and early afternoon. Fishing with dry flies is great in the evening hours

Key Species: Rainbow trout and brook trout."
