Fishing is one of the best activities you can enjoy while visiting West Canyon Ranch. There are fishing spots nearby, including the Little Bear River. This local spot is one of the best places to fish, especially during the fall. It provides excellent fishing for both fly fishers and spin-cast fishers. Little Bear River is 36.4 miles long, rising in the mountains east of Brigham City, where three forks join at Avon and flow north to Paradise, Utah. All in all, Little Bear River provides good to excellent fishing for Browns, Cutts, Bows, and Whitefish.
Another spot you can fish near West Canyon Ranch is the Logan River. The Logan River region is an incredibly diverse fishery, including brook, brown, cutthroat, rainbow trout, and the occasional whitefish. You can either fish in the Logan’s “urban” section or from the Cutler Reservoir, which includes a three-dam configuration. This area provides a more unique fly-fishing experience than the blue-ribbon waters from the third dam to the Idaho border.
Another portion of the river that is accessible to local fishers includes the lower Logan River, which has large populations of rainbow and brown trout. Above the impoundments in the river is primarily a wild trout stream. Browns and cutthroats both reproduce well in its crystal-clear waters. Cutthroats are dominant in the higher reaches.
If you are going to fish in Utah, you should also know the regulations. Regular Utah trout and whitefish regulations are in effect from Card Canyon Bridge downstream to Cutler Marsh, including all three impoundments: The trout limit in this region of Utah is four fish.
