Fishing is a favorite pastime for southeastern Utah residents. Tourists from across the nation also come to eastern Utah to participate in the outdoor sport.

A variety of waterways give anglers an opportunity to fish for various species.

Fishing holes, reservoirs, rivers and creeks are located throughout this vast area and allow anglers to fish using just about any technique.

The one thing which potential anglers must remember is that a current Utah fishing license must be obtained before casting the first line.

A permit may be obtained from Utah Division of Wildlife Resource offices throughout the state. An online application is also available at and merchants throughout the state are licensed through the wildlife division and are able to provide permits to the public.

Anglers are also encouraged to pick up a current Utah fishing proclamation for information regarding tackle and catch limits.

An updated fishing report for southeastern Utah is printed weekly in the Sun Advocate sports section and is also available on the wildlife division's Internet website.

Anglers must also remember the importance of reading all posted signs at Utah waterways. These signs will specify trout limits and proper facility usage.

Fishing is an inexpensive recreation and is easily available throughout Utah.
