THE RIVERS WE FISH

Larry Culley, longtime Jans fly fishing guide, provides descriptions of our local rivers:

“The three rivers that we spend most of our time on at Jans are the tailwater flows [controlled rivers below a dam] of the Weber, Provo, and Strawberry. And while we do spend some time in freestone rivers, it’s the warmer tailwaters that provide the year round fishing and insect life that make for such ideal conditions. With trout feeding consistently year round, the result is bigger fish, and more of them.”

Weber River:

“The Weber is a great tailwater fishery that’s accessible year round. It’s predominantly wild brown trout that are being hooked, but the occasional rainbow and cutthroat are caught too. And while it may be lesser known than the Provo, the fish are just as big and pull just as hard.”

Provo River:

“The Provo is rated one of the top 100 fisheries in the US by Trout Unlimited for a reason. The wild brown trout in this river are strong and there’s plenty of them. With easy access from Park City, and such a high fish density, the Provo is a remarkably consistent fishery for our tours.

On top of that, tens of millions of dollars have been spent recently to undo the ‘straightening’ of the Provo that occurred in the ’50’s. With its meanders and wetlands restored, the Provo has thrived as a trout fishery. At one point there were so many fish in this river that they even reintroduced otters to add another predator to the mix.”

Strawberry River:

“The Strawberry is made up of two different tailwater stretches. The first is a deep and remote mountain canyon with very big fish in a very small stream. Simply put, it’s challenging fishing. But if you’re up for the challenge, this is the trip to take your fishing to the next level. The second reach is high desert. And again, it’s very challenging with big fish that aren’t easily fooled.

Either way, this isn’t your family-friendly fly fishing trip. I’ve even seen a mountain lion in broad daylight. But again, if you’re up to the test this river has the potential to land the fish of a lifetime.”
