FISHING IN THE DESERT? Why the heck not?
Oh ye of little faith. Not only is there fishing opportunities in Moab, but the Colorado River and surrounding lakes are full of bait-cravin’ fish of the west.
THE COLORADO RIVER
Catfish, bass and sunfish.
Trout fish a-plenty. Bring your float tube, small boat, or fish from the shore.
WARNER & OOWAH LAKES | LA SAL MOUNTAINS
Trout fishing in high alpine mountains just outside of Moab. The lakes are only accessible during the summer and fall months because winter snow.
A small little gudgeon of a stream with some mighty fine trout. Perfect for fly fishing. But watch out for swimmers – it’s a swimming hole dream.
