Provo River

Provo River

The Provo River offers a premier blue ribbon trout fishery close to Utah's major cities. Brown and rainbow trout reach record lengths in the Provo, with a typical fish running 18 inches or bigger. In some areas the Provo offers 3,000 or more trout per mile. As a result, the pristine waters of the Provo River provide exceptional exhilaration and outdoor adventure! The Provo River is only a 15-minute drive from Provo, or an hour and a half from Salt Lake City.

Brown Trout Originating in the high Uinta Mountains, the Provo River is divided into three distinct sections: lower, middle, and upper. Each section is bounded by a body of water: the Upper Provo flows from Trail Lake down to Jordanelle Reservoir, the Middle Provo is found between Jordanelle and Deer Creek Reservoir, and the Lower section flows downstream from Deer Creek. The largest stretch of the river is the Upper Provo. Although some of the best fishing is found on private property, many outfitters offer access to these exclusive areas.
