The Strawberry starts above Strawberry Reservoir and enters into Strawberry Reservoir. It leaves the Berry Patch and empties into Starvation Reservoir, then joins with the Duchesne River below the town of Duchesne and Becomes the Duchesne River. The sections I guide on are the “Wild Strawberry” from strawberry reservoir to Starvation, and Below Starvation Reservoir. Both are very different and offer a different reward to anglers.

The Wild Strawberry
Cascading down from Strawberry Reservoir the Wild Strawberry is home to beautiful mountain trout. Rainbow, Brown, and gorgeous cutthroat trout live in this little tail water and love large dry flys. Fishing season here is June till October according to snow levels. You will not find a prettier place to wet your line then this stretch of river.

Fish usually average 8-14 inch’s with fish up to 20 inches available. A pure dry dropper stream that is a blast to fish. When going here plan on leaving early to get a good section of stream to fish. The fish are very spooky and do not respond to pressure well.

Strawberry River: Below Starvation Reservoir
Being a Fly Fishing Guide you get to explore new areas to find large fish. No other place in Utah has larger Brown Trout on a consistent basis. This area Produces large fish. But beware. Many of anglers here reports and come expecting much only to get their butt kicked by these wary fish.

Sight fishing and stalking skills can be the difference between a 20 fish day and getting skunked. I will show you how to find these fish, how to approach them, what to use, and how to land a brown over 20 inches. With browns over 26″ being caught every year this area holds some true pigs.

I guide on this section of  Strawberry River year round and can help you catch a large Brown Trout. It will take work and some learning, but you will not be disappointed with the results. Plan on catching 2-8 fish during the day, but at least one of those will be over 20 inch’s.

Fishing Waters
 (1)
The Strawberry river flows into Strawberry Reservoir and out through Soldier Creek Dam. The first 8 miles below Soldier Creek Dam are BLM land. This stretch is one of Utah's most productive ... morebrown and cutthroat trout fisheries and is accessed by a trail that runs along the north bank. The Strawberry river has a population of Bear Lake Cutthroat that have migrated from Strawberry Reservoir into the stream.

//

12 miles below Soldier Creek Dam the river runs by the Strawberry Pinnacles where it is joined by the tributaries Avintaquin Creek and Red Creek. The narrow canyon that the river runs through is characterized by high, steep cliffs and dense foliage. The river flows into Starvation Reservoir before it joins the Duchesne River east of the town of Duchesne, Utah.

//

This water upstream from USFS 124 (Bull Springs Road) to its headwaters has strict regulations, including some sections that are closed year round to protect spawning cutthrowat and Kokanee Salmon. Check current fishing regulations before you go. Below the road to the top of the reservoir is closed to fishing all year. However, don't snub your nose at the section below the reservoir. Great fishing is to be had here.

Strawberry Bay Campground is located on the shore of beautiful Strawberry Reservoir at an elevation of 7,200 feet. The campground is set among rolling sagebrush covered hills next to Strawberry Reservoir. Most campsites offer sweeping views of the reservoir and surrounding hills. Small pine trees dot the campground but provide very little shade.

Starvation Reservoir offers 3,500 acres of fishing four miles northwest of Duchesne on Highway 40. A 54 unit campground, sandy beach, modern rest rooms, showers, group-use area, and fish cleaning and sewage disposal stations are available. Primitive camping is allowed at designated areas around the reservoir.

Based in Vineyard, Utah our company has bloomed and developed. Our company is small but has a big love for the world of fly fishing. Jordan and Sarah Gillespie are both experienced ... moreanglers with over 14 years of serious Fly fishing experience. They would rather be out chasing trout more than anything else.

Thanks again for your time yesterday. The class was great and I felt like I learned a lot. It is nice to work with someone who is patient and willing to openly share their passion as you do. I have a lot of work to do, but feel I have a good start to get going. I am going to start practicing my casting, then hopefully try a little on the Provo over the next couple of weeks while I am up there for ... more work, just to at least start messing around on the river. Here is one of the pictures you took that turned out really good. Will be in touch.Thanks

Thanks again for a great trip on the Green and at Calder. With forty fish to the boat on Tuesday I would say the B section was epic. Calder Reservoir was a blast as well and you weren’t making up the quality of fish in there. Unbelievable! I can’t tell you how much I appreciate all of your hard work and efforts in making this the best trip I have had to the Green.

1 day with Jordan equaled the best fishing experience in my life! My arm is sore as I type this from fighting fish all day long. Not only was the trip a massive success but Jordan was fantastic to work with. After 5 minutes instruction and a number of gentle reminders through out the day my casting improved 100%. I cant wait to get back on the Green River with Jordan.

It’s been two weeks since our guided trip and I can’t stop thinking or talking to people about it. You know the Green so well and put us in so many good situations to land fish, I feel like I would insult the fishery if I attempted it on my own. It was great getting to know you and wish you the best. Zachary and I will definitely be up there again to fish with you.
