Community fisheries

A fun and easy way to spend time with family and friends

The DWR is committed to developing more community fisheries — places one can walk, bike or bus to, then catch a fish or two.

Community fisheries map

Community fisheries offer a setting for parents and kids to talk, enhance family interaction, and keep busy Utahns in touch with the natural world. Fishing can provide families with opportunities to get away from their day-to-day problems and share time together.

Kids benefit from fishing immensely, since they can participate solo or with others. It's a sport that builds self-esteem and confidence while enhancing problem-solving and decision-making skills.

Interested in teaching others to fish? Learn more about our free Angler Education Program and get access to our manuals, supplemental materials and evaluation forms.

Youth fishing clubs

Many cities in Utah that have Community Fisheries also have a youth fishing club. Youth fishing clubs are open to youth 8 years old and older. Sign-ups usually begin at city recreation departments in early March, and clubs fill up fast.

Clubs generally meet once a week for six weeks. The DWR has provided the communities with an angler education curriculum designed to teach any beginner how to fish and pass on the enthusiasm and skills to be a lifelong anger. It covers all of the basic skills needed to be a successful angler.

Communities with a youth fishing club are listed below. If you would like to volunteer, simply contact the representative in the community where you would like to participate.

We will update this page during the late winter and early spring as youth fishing clubs begin to form, so keep checking back.

Communities that sponsor a youth fishing club are listed below. If you want to volunteer, contact the representative in the community where you would like to participate. This page will be frequently updated during the late winter and early spring as youth fishing clubs begin to form, so keep checking back.
