Weber River

Fishing report

  • Rating: Good
  • Conditions: Roger from Smitty's Tire and Service reports fair fishing for brown trout. The browns are concentrating on digging their redds (spawning areas) as they prepare to spawn. Nymphs seem to work best this time of year. Try using egg patterns, Prince nymphs (in size 16 or 18), sow bugs, Copper Johns, blue-wing olives (in size 18 or 20) or Parachute Adams. For spinners and lures, try using small Rapalas with a brown trout or rainbow trout pattern. Be careful and do not step on the redds while fishing. Watch this helpful video to learn more about redds and how to spot them.
