Weber River Fishing 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 in 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.

Fly fishing on the Weber River is one of Utah’s overlooked gems, just a short ride from Park City Utah. The Weber River is slightly smaller than the Provo River, and can be characterized ... moreas a medium sized stream perfect for wad fishing. The Weber River has numerous access points so it never to hard to find a bit of solitude even on the weekend. Often over shadowed by the Provo River, the Weber River is a blue ribbon tailwater, that is a trophy fishery in its own right.

With a healthy diet of sow bugs these fish tend to be big. The average trout on the Weber River is 16-18 inches with many fish over 21+ inches. the Weber is largely populated by brown trout but you have a good chance at catching Rainbows and Cutthroats. The Weber River has some exceptional hatches throughout the year, including its incredible early season, “mother’s day” caddis hatch. Park City Fly Fishing Company primarily focus its guide trips on the weber river between Rock Port reservoir and Echo reservoir. The easy wading on this stretch makes the Weber River great for beginners and also challenges the most experienced anglers. Let the Park City Fly Fishing Company help you explore this diamond in the rough.
