The Weber river is a popular place for Utah fly fishing guides to take their clients. It is a pleasant river that fishes well, and is home to some very large feisty fish. Today we followed suit and took a group of five to the Weber for a morning of fly fishing. We arrived at the river around 9:00 a.m. and things started out a little slow. As the morning progressed fish began to be caught, and smiles began to appear. There wasn’t a single dominant fly today. It was one of those days that almost every fish took a different fly. This is a good sign that the fish in the Weber are hungry and prefer a good drifted fly over the perfect imitation. When we left the river around 2:00 p.m. the fish were still biting. We fished near Wanship in the artificial only section. This section between Rockport and Echo reservoirs is a well known stretch of river so get there early to beat the angler hatch!
