Fishing At Flaming Gorge Reservoir
AKA: The Gorge
Fishing for smallmouth bass, channel catfish, rainbow trout, brown trout, lake trout and kokanee salmon at Flaming Gorge Reservoir in Utah.
One of Utah's premier outdoor destinations, Flaming Gorge Reservoir is a 42,000-acre lake with excellent fishing and boating. Located on the northern border part of the state, at Manila, the lake has over 350 miles of shoreline. Over half of the reservoir is in Wyoming, but plenty of great fishing and the Flaming Gorge Dam Visitor Center is in Utah. Stunning views await anglers and boaters on this scenic waterway. Record lake trout and German browns have come out of these fertile waters, which also have healthy populations of bass, catfish, rainbow trout and kokanee salmon. The lake is surrounded by Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area with camping and marinas in both states. Access to the shoreline, for fishing from the bank, is available at numerous locations around the lake. Area fishing guides and boat charters are available which know the better fishing areas and techniques. In winter, once the ice is safe, there can be some excellent ice fishing.
