Winter Fishing: Get the Gear

Fishing in Utah doesn’t stop when the mercury drops.


Fingers and toes are the first things to get cold when you’re braving the elements, and nothing ruins a day on the water or ice faster than the threat of frostbite. These extremity protectors will keep you warm and toasty, so the only thing shivering will be the fish shaking in their boots as you outlast them.

Sorel 1964 PAC Nylon Boot

Sorel is the world’s leader in winter boots, and the 1964 PAC Nylon Boot does as good a job of keeping you warm on the ice as it does of keeping you looking good while out on the town. $130

Simms ExStream Foldover Mitt

The ExStream Foldover Mitt gives you the best of both worlds with the dexterity of a half finger glove and the warmth only a full mitten can provide. $59


The Utah Hunting and Fishing Mobile App is your digital companion for the winter fishing season. The official mobile application of the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources lets you purchase, download and store your Utah Fishing License— fishing licenses are required for every angler aged 12 or older— in addition to providing handy tools like the Fish Identification Guide. The guide’s detailed illustrations and descriptions allow fishermen to identify exactly what they’ve pulled from the water, and the included fishing records give every aspiring angler something to shoot for. The app is available for download, free at Apple’s App Store and Google Play.
