Weber River has Low Traffic

Thursday, 12 May, 2016
There haven't been many anglers fishing the Weber lately. A few persistent anglers reported good fishing throughout the river. Anglers have had success using grey scuds, zebra midges, blue-wing olives and Rapalas. Law enforcement officers are still encountering many anglers who believe they are allowed to fish in the river on posted private property. Without written permission, those anglers are trespassing. Please remember that you must obtain written permission to fish waters that flow through properly posted private property.
Fishing Water Report
The Weber River flows for 125-miles from northwest of the Uinta Mountains to the Great Salt Lake. The Weber River was named for American fur trapper John Henry Weber and is similar ... morein size to the Provo River.

A short drive from both Salt Lake City and Park City make this river a local favorite. The Weber flows south through two major reservoirs and has some incredible fishing on its way to the Great Salt Lake. Year round fly fishing can be found on the Weber, which is well known for producing wild brown trout that grow to trophy sizes well over 25 inches.

Angling traffic is light compared to the Provor river and with just a short 20-minute drive from Park City and excellent access, the Weber River is a gem. It is well recognized for its abundant hatches, making for great nymphing year round. Summer months offer outstanding dry fly fishing on carpets of caddis and over-abundant hoppers. Late winter through May, fish gobble down blue wing olives and Mothers Day caddis.

The Weber is divided into three sections by two big reservoirs. Fish for really big browns in the section between Rockport Reservoir and Echo Reservoir.
