Looking to land the big one? Of course you are.
Whether you have your own boat and want to tie into a massive lake trout, or you are more a river rat, Sweetwater County’s fishing waters offer ample opportunity to pursue a variety of fish.
With Sweetwater County’s combination of tailwaters, man-made lakes and reservoirs, mountain lakes, streams and rivers, the location is a trout-lover’s paradise. From Lake Flaming Gorge to the Green River, there are many places to hook a choice fish.
