Utah's Weber River

January 28, 2008 By: Marshall Cutchin

“Thin silver crystals of ice shimmered in the air. The fly landed just above the feeding trout and floated high on the ripples. The surface erupted as the fish struck. I raised the rod tip, pulled down firmly on the line and felt the weight and fury of the brown.” While schools close and ice fishermen huddle in their shacks, Brian Jones takes his bamboo rod to northwestern Utah’s Weber river tailwaters and fishes for big browns. His complete guide appears on Rocky Mountain Game & Fish.
