The Fisherman Superhero: David Needles

Beehive Trout Tour: Utah's best spots for catching the trout your heart desires.
Deer Creek Reservoir
Large rainbow trout were planted here last fall, but few were caught due to limited winter fishing. So big rainbows are biting.
Utah’s number one fishing spot for good reasons, including giving up some large cutts.
The river is filled with browns but limited to artificial lures and flies only. So more skill equals more fish.
Uinta Mountain lakes
The Uintas offer a lot of fishing opportunities. The brooks aren’t the largest, but they are the most plentiful.
Trophy and Lake
Hands down, the best spot to win trophy mackinaw and lake trout. The gorge also has tons of smaller lake trout for a great meal.
