Strawberry River, UT

We spent the better part of the day on October 3rd, 2011 on the Strawberry River below the dam creating Strawberry Reservoir. Driving into the river, we were awestruck by the scenery and specifically the aspens turning yellow, gold, orange, red, etc. We arrived at the parking area below the dam and had the river to ourselves. We were very excited about the prospects and every part of the river looked promising. We spent about 4 to 5 hours covering a lot of river, but were somewhat disappointed by the fly fishing outcome (not the scenery). We were only able to bring a few fish to net. Weather may have had something to do with the fish behavior, but that's only a guess. Maybe another day would produce different results.

  1. Absolutely beautiful country. Eagles flying overhead. Remote river. The fishing was a bit slow to start, and the water looked much more enticing than it was productive for us. But, we still caught fish in a super nice place. Love Utah for fly-fishing.
