One of the premier places to fly fish in Utah, offering gorgeous rainbow and brown trout. All of this with a spectacular view of the the Wasatch Mountains.

The Middle Provo River runs from Jordanelle Reservoir to Deer Creek Reservoir through the Heber Valley. To get there from Salt Lake City, head southeast on I-80. Take exit 146 and merge onto US-189/US-40 toward Heber. Travel 17.1 miles; turning right onto W 100 South/River Road. 0.3 miles down River Road, turn right and follow the gravel road to a parking lot. 

Trails to the west will take you to the river. There is also a second parking lot on the south side of River Road just barely down the street from the north gravel road.  Both areas have unique areas of fishing and I recommend checking them both out. 

For expert advice, give a local fishing store a call and ask them what flies are getting bites on the Middle Provo. Fish Tech Outfitters (801) 272-8808. Click here for more info.

Fish in the Middle Provo River: Brown Trout, Cutthroat Trout, Rainbow Trout, Mountain Whitefish, Common Carp
