A Diamond In The Rough

Weber River

Often overlooked and therefore uncrowded, the Weber River provides an excellent alternative to the sometimes over-crowded Provo River. It is a medium sized stream and is located twenty minutes northeast of Park City.

There are both freestone and tailwater sections, the most accessible being a 15 mile stretch, paralleling I-80, between the agricultural communities of Wanship and Coalville, Utah.

Hatches are consistent with an overabundance of caddis appearing in early May. Brown trout are the most prevalent species; however, we do see rainbow and cutthroat trout from time to time.

Access is fairly straight forward and the topography is conducive to easy and comfortable wading.
