Uinta Mountains, South Slope Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The Uinta Mountains are home to some of Utah’s finest fly fishing streams and lakes. Of the range’s two slopes, the south is the more heavily fished because of its proximity to Salt Lake. Easy access and many fishable waters make the south slope a fly fisher’s dream, especially if you are willing to explore. The Provo River, Currant Creek, Rock Creek, and the Duchesne River drainages all begin in the alpine basins of the south slope, but the most heavily fished sections of these blue ribbon waters lie outside the wilderness area.
Large stretches of fishable water within the designated wilderness boundaries receive little angling pressure. Types of Fish: Cutthroats and brookies as well as grayling and golden trout in several lakes. Waters off U.S. 150 are stocked with large numbers of rainbow and a few albino trout. Splake in Moon Lake. This eTrail covers the "where, when, and how" to fish in this region. You'll get a full-page map and information on the known hatches, suggested equipment to bring, and the best flies to use."
