When you come to the prestigious rocky mountains of Utah, you can expect to experience some great Utah fly fishing. Utah has an abundant trout population most of which is surrounded by high mountains. North to south, east to west, you’ll catch plenty of trout throughout the state. The beautiful brown trout, rainbow trout, and cutthroat trout are plentiful and healthy throughout Utah.
Fish in Utah
The Bonneville Cutthroat Trout, which is Utah’s state fish, is a unique trout. It can be caught in most Utah rivers, but the cutthroat is most plentiful in the high mountain streams. The Bonneville Cutthroat has distinct beautiful orange markings under its mouth, where a human throat would be, giving it the appearance of a “cut throat.”
The Brown Trout is a beautiful, yet more aggressive, darker golden colored trout, covered with distinct red spots. Brown Trout usually come from the hatchery and thrive when released into the native rivers. Although they are not native to America, their introduction to Utah has done well and are now one of Utah’s favorite trout to catch.
The Rainbow trout is named after its horizontal rainbow covering the entire body of the trout. They are fun to catch as they will put up a great fight and often times do acrobatic jumps when caught on a fly rod.
