9 places to see bright red kokanee salmon in Utah this fall

Autumn brings a lot of beautiful colors to Utah's landscape, and driving to see the leaves change color is a popular activity for many locals. However, trees aren't the only things that turn a brilliant shade of red in the fall — kokanee salmon do as well.

All bobcat permits and most fall turkey permits to be sold online only, due to COVID-19

If you are interested in hunting turkeys or bobcats this fall, be aware that the permits will only be sold online during their respective opening sales days this year, due to COVID-19 concerns. Specifically, the first two weeks of fall turkey permit sales — and all of the bobcat permit sales — will be online only.
