Fishing Get Hooked

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.

In addition to the 90-mile stretch of Flaming Gorge Reservoir, Jim Bridger Pond, Fontanelle Reservoir, Hams Fork, LaBarge Creek, and Green River spots are prime Sweetwater County waterways for fisherman access.

Be Safe—Don't forget to check current whitewater conditions with USGS!

From fly fishing to vertical jigging and more, anglers can fish in their favorite style for channel catfish, mountain whitefish, smallmouth bass, kokanee salmon and brown, mackinaw and rainbow trout throughout Sweetwater County.
