NileGuide Expert Says:
The best fly-fishery in the Wasatch
NileGuide Expert tip:
The Provo River has three main sections: the Upper, Middle, and Lower; the Jordanelle and Deer Creek reservoirs divide these.
- The Provo River originates high in the Uinta Mountains - Utah's tallest range, situated in the state's northeastern corner. It has two main branches, the North Fork and the South Fork. These meet and flow through the Heber Valley, Provo Canyon, into Utah Valley, Utah Lake, and eventually the Great Salt Lake. Along the way, the Provo River makes obligatory stops in the Jordanelle Reservoir and the Deer Creek Reservoir.
Originally called Timpanogotzis River, this body of water supplied food and water to the tribe of that name for thousands of years. Today, the river is a popular destination for fly fishers along its entire length.
