  • Blogs give us a voice online. It’s not just to have a page but to deliver a message. In my humble opinion, the most important thing is putting out a message. So yes, it does make a difference

  • Wow! Thanks for posting this. For people who loves fishing would definitely go to those places you mentioned to catch some big fish. Tuba is a great place for fishing.I caught many fish there. Strawberry Reservoir was less kind to me.

  • I visited Flaming Gorge. It was a memorable trip for me but now I should try Lake Powell. I usually try my fishing luck on fishing pontoon.

    Thank you for the informations.

  • I would put Sand Hollow Reservoir in first place, but I absolutely agree (well, maybe only one more points are in doubt)

  • Even though it is catch and release, no barb, no bait, those rainbow colors and fighting ability make for a fun day.

  • Starvation Reservoir
    Flaming Gorge
    Strawberry Reservoir
    Jordanelle Reservoir
    Willard Bay
    nice places....
