For those who like to mix things up, enjoy some solitude, and explore, there are a couple hundred miles of small fly fishing streams running within an hour of Park City. Note that some of this water became more easily accessible to fisherman in 2015 as a result of a successful challenge to the 2010 Public Access Water Act.

These small streams are ideal for both dry flies and hoppers, and one can expect to find wild cutthroat, brook, rainbow, and brown trout, as well as an occasional grayling. Typical sizes run from 8 to 16 inches, while it’s not unusual to score fish in the 20 inch class.
