The Uinta Mountains are divided by a ridgeline running east-west. Located in the northeastern corner of the state, the north slope of this divide is made up of glaciated valleys and meadows that are home to a seemingly endless number of excellent fly fishing waters. During peak season, especially on weekends, the north slope sees a fair amount of pressure on its major drainages: Stillwater Fork, China Meadows, Henrys Fork, Blacks Fork, Smith Fork, and Red Castle. Spirit Lake basin, Tamarak Lake, Sheep Creek, and other waters east of the Henrys Fork drainage, although technically outside the designated wilderness boundaries, offer excellent scenery and fishing and a lot less traffic. Types of Fish: Wild brookies and cutthroats, arctic grayling, whitefish, and stocked albino trout. A fair amount of natural reproduction here. The Division of Wildlife Resources stocks many of the road-accessible fisheries. 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.
