Fishing in Salt Lake City, UT
About Salt Lake City Fishing
Salt Lake City is a great place to grab your tackle and cast into the mountain rivers and streams that flow down from the Wasatch Range. Anglers can enjoy the high alpine lakes as well, but don't bother fishing in the Great Salt Lake -- there's not much alive in the briny deep. But a little higher up in the canyons, there are many lakes and rivers to fly fish.
