Ogden River Fishing Report

The Ogden River, a tributary of the Weber River, begins in the Wasatch Range from where it runs for 35-miles. The Ogden River's three forks converge at Pineview Reservoir, near Huntsville. The river then flows southwest through Ogden Canyon, Ogden City, and the border of West Haven and Marriott-Slaterville where it joins the Weber River.

The South Fork of the Ogden River between Causey and Pineview reservoirs (about 10 miles) is a scenic river with good public access and stretches of private land. This means you should pay close attention to signs and ask for permission before fishing on private property. The Odgen’s South Fork drops from 5,500 feet to 4,900 feet at the downstream end. This section of the South Fork is a serene 15-30 feet wide and provides anglers with great opportunity to catch native Bonneville cutthroat trout, brown trout, and mountain whitefish. The depth here is variable; ranging from less than one foot in shallow riffles up to 3 to 4 feet in deeper pools and runs. Fuel, restaurants, and grocery stores can all be found in the nearby towns of Huntsville and Eden.

If you decided to fish the stretch of Odgen River below the convergence of its three forks, you might as well stay in Odgen. As you head out, take Hwy 39 in Ogden (12th Street) and travel east. The river runs along the Highway which makes 7 miles upstream easily accessible. Visitors that journeying up this narrow canyon find at an elevation of 4,400 to 4,900 feet both excellent fishing and alpine beauty all around them. The Ogden River Scenic Byway SR-39 climbs through the Wasatch-Cache National Forest to crystal clear Pineview Reservoir, about six miles east of the mouth of the canyon.

Close proximity to Ogden, UT makes this Blue Ribbon water convenient for anglers looking for robust trout populations in a beautiful setting. Remember, this is a whirling disease positive water and anglers should take care to clean and dry their equipment before moving to other waters.

Those that desire one of Utah’s more distinctly urban fisheries should head to the Ogden River Parkway, which runs from the mouth of Ogden Canyon to Washington Blvd, approx. 1700 S
