Robzilla,
When are you heading that way?

In that area you have the Provo River. It is a Tailwater in the middle and lower sections so runoff should not be too much of an issue if your going anytime soon, although you may have slightly higher flows.

If you like to fish lakes, you have Strawberry Reservoir about a half hour away which can produce some very big fish. Honestly this is where I would go, (the Provo can get very busy this time of year through October and November) it is a huge shallow lake (somewhat)with plenty of food offerings such as Leeches, Scuds, Caddis, Crayfish, etc....

Check with these fella's Western Rivers Flyfisher, a Utah fly fishing outfitter guiding on the Green River, Provo River, and other Utah small streams.. A top notch flyshop that will steer you in the right direction.

I had seen in another thread that you were hiking into Yellowstone, so another option for you may be to hike into the Western Uintah Mts, tons of smaller streams and lakes, best of all....fewer people.

I will be in Utah in mid June doing a triathlon after Yellowstone witch probably isn’t a great idea but I’m doing it! and I plan to have a good time as long as I don’t run into any bears.

I will definitely look into the Strawberry Reservoir, and Western Uintah Mts. Preferable the Western Uintah Mts.

Thanks for the reply!
