04/17/14 Anglers are catching plenty of brown trout. One customer is using our
Brown Sculpin streamer fly and another prefers the Matuka Sculpin. Blue-winged
olives should begin to hatch any time now.
05/07/14 High discharges has hampered the opportunity some days but anglers
are still catching some nice trout in the tailwater section.
04/14/14 High discharges and stained water has the fly fishing opportunities
mostly on hold. You could throw streamers but it is high and cold from snow melt
05/21/14 The stream is flowing at a low level and the fly fishing opportunities should
have picked up. Let us hear from you.
05/28/14 Two customers ordering flies reported the fishing is getting better.
Both have been catching some nice trout on our Brown Sculpin streamers.
Water levels have been high at times.
06/04/14 No reports from customers or our local contact but the USGS stream
flows look good except the tailwater is currently high. Water temps are up and
more insects should begin to hatch. Let us hear from you.
06/11/14 Stream levels are in good shape and trout are being caught. Two
customers ordering flies his past week.
06/25/14 Two customers ordering flies reported fishing is good. They are using

08/13/14 Two good fishing reports from the past week. Plenty of Little Yellow
Stoneflies, PMDs, Ginger Quills, Spotted sedges and other insects hatching.
09/03/14 More good reports have come in during the past two weeks. PMDs, Pale
Evening duns, and terrestrials are taking trout.
09/23/14 Customers are reporting stream levels in good shape and cooler weather
has turned the trout on. Plenty of trout are being caught.
10/08/14 Three customers reporting they are catching a good number of trout. The
October Caddis are hatching and should continue for a few more weeks, depending
on the elevation.
10/15/14 Two good reports came in from customers last week. Blue-winged Olives
have started hatching again (bi-brooded).
10/22/14 Another good report from an angler catching some good numbers of
trout. Good conditions equals good fishing.
10/29/14 No reports came in this past week but good conditions remain.
11/05/14 Colder weather and a drop in water temps will affect the trout some. One
good report came in last week.

Weber River, Utah - Fishing Report - August 23, 2020
Fly Fishing Weber River, Utah
A description of the Weber River,
Guide to fly fishing the Weber River,
Weber River fishing seasons, and
12/24/14 Chance of snow most days and colder air temperatures. Guides
freezing would be the biggest problems. Midges are catching fish for our
customers. Use a tandem rig with pupa on top and larva on the bottom.
12/31/14 We didn't receive any reports from the past week. It has turned much colder.
01/07/15 Still no reports but the weather is going to be much warmer this coming week.
01/14/15 One report from a customer who managed a few trout on midges and that
is it. The water remains very cold.
01/29/15 Two good reports from customers using our Cream Midge pupa and larva
and Brown Sculpin Streamers.
02/03/15 We didn't receive any reports from anglers this past week. Conditions are
better currently, with some snow, but high air temperatures forecast in the low fifties.
02/17/15 Still no reports from anyone fishing this past week. Conditions remain
fairly good for wintertime.
03/10/15 We didn't receive any reports this past week, but conditions have
improved and the weather and water will be warmer this coming week.
03/17/15 Both tailwaters are producing good numbers of trout. Midges are
working along with BWO nymphs.
03/24/15 No reports but conditions remain fairly good. There is some snow forecast.
03/31/15 Two good reports from local anglers. Midges and small BWO nymphs, are
still key flies to use.
05/05/15 Little Black Caddis are hatching. BWOs continue to produce. The
freestone section is warming up.
05/12/15 Customer reported catching some nice browns below Echo this past week
using our Brown Sculpin.
05/19/15 Good conditions still exist but watch the discharge levels of the tailwaters
and freestone section. Lots of rain is forecast.
05/26/15 Two good reports from customers. Good conditions continue.
06/02/15 Stream levels are a little low but otherwise conditions are excellent.
06/09/15 Good conditions with lots of trout being caught. The water has warmed
and cleared up some and more hatches should be starting soon.
06/16/15 The water is even clearer and anglers are continuing to catch trout. Look
for Golden SF, more caddis (Spotted Sedges, Green Sedges), and PMDs to start.
06/23/15 All three USGS stations are showing lower than normal water levels. Good
wading opportunity but stealth required.
06/30/15 There's still low discharge amounts but some increase in levels should
occur. Anglers are catching trout and several hatches are taking place.
07/07/15 Two good reports from the past week. Low discharge levels but otherwise, great.
07/14/15 Both tailwaters and the freestone section is in good shape with hatches
07/21/15 Two good reports from customers. Lots of PMDs, Little Yellow stones and

08/04/15 Stream levels have been up and down but remaining in good shape overall.
Lolts of hatches taking place and lots of trout are being caught.
08/11/15 Pale Morning Duns and Spotted sedges (caddisflies) are the main insects
hatching but there are others. Anglers are reporting some good catches both in
terms of size and numbers.
08/18/15 Terrestrials, ants, beetle and hopper imitations, are beginning to work good.
08/25/15 Discharges have been in favor of anglers lately. Conditions have been very
good but make sure you check the discharges before deciding where to fish.
09/08/15 Stream flows and levels are near to a little below normal at all three USGS
stations. Two good reports from anglers the past two weeks. Great Conditions.
09/15/15 This little tailwater is often overlooked in favor of the Provo River but
sometimes, that is a mistake. It has produced some very nice trout lately.
09/22/15 Stream levels are all near normal levels for this time of the year. You can
expect little change this coming week. There are a lot of caddisflies hatching.
10/06/15 Stream levels at all three USGS stations are average to low levels.
October Caddis are hatching and anglers reporting some very good catches.
10/13/15 Brown trout are spawning and some anglers are catching some of
them. We don't recommend it but it is legal.
10/20/15 Watch the stream levels closely. There is more rain in the forecast.
Streamers were the key fly this past week.
10/27/15 We didn't receive reports from anyone fishing the past week but
conditions remain very good. The weather is getting a little cooler.
11/03/15 Stream levels remain low and there are little reason for them to
change. It is turning much colder and midges will again become important.
11/10/15 Stream levels are still in good shape for wading. The water is getting
colder each day and of course, so is the weather. Snow is in the forecast the next
two days. The Brown sculpin streamer is still producing some big brown trout.
11/17/15 There is snow in the forecast every day through Friday, then clearing. All
the tailwaters are running low right now and the only thing that may change that is
melting snow. The weather is mild.
11/24/15 We didn't get any reports from anyone fishing this past week. There was
some snow but that is clear and conditions good at this time.
12/01/15 Most of the stream levels are low due to low discharges. That makes wading
easy. Clear and cold through Thursday then snow over the weekend. Midges, midges.
12/08/15 Stream levels are fine. There is a lot of snow in the forecast the coming
week. We added Winter stoneflies to the list of flies needed as they are hatching.
12/15/15 As I'm sure most all of you know, it is going to be much colder this week. Fish
as near the dam as you can. The water will be warmer than it will further downstream.
12/22/15 Very cold conditions exist with a winter storm warning through
Wednesday. Getting to the river may be a bigger problem than catching trout.
12/29/15 There's a chance of snow most days and colder air temperatures. Midges
are catching fish for our customers. Use a tandem rig with pupa on top and larva on
01/19/16 The midge is still king. They hatch just about every day but you will have
much better success using the larva and pupa imitations fished on indicators.
01/26/16 The USGS stations are all locked up with ice, but the discharges and
stream levels are fine. Midges, both red and cream, larva and pupa, are working.
02/09/16 The weather is going to be much warmer than last week. The water
temperature will change little if you fish near the dam where the bottom discharge
is providing slightly warmer water. Use Midges, Winter stoneflies and Black Flies.
03/09/16 The stream is just a little high at Oakley and at a normal level at Gateway.
These vary due to discharges, so you should always check them. Conditions are
improving but the water still cold and midges and winter stoneflies the main insects.
03/22/16 The discharges and stream levels are all staying near or below normal.
Wading is possible most places. Midges and little Blue-winged olives is still the most
important insects to imitate.
03/29/16 Two good reports came in from customers fishing the Weber this past week.
It is certainly beating the Provo right now. Even the Green river tailwater has been off.
04/05/16 Conditions are slowly improving. The Rockport tailwater is producing some
nice trout for those anglers fishing the Brown sculpin and midge larva and pupa.
04/12/16 The stream levels are low in most sections. That means easy wading but it
is easy to spook the trout. Midges and little BWOs are still the main foods.
05/03/16 The river is running high in all sections now, mostly due to melting snow. The
weather is warming up and it won't be long before some major hatches start taking
place. Right now, streamers like our White Belly sculpin are the best choice of flies.
05/10/16 The discharges and water level below Echo is low but one customer is
catching trout sight fishing for them. You have to use some stealth and stay low.
05/17/16 The discharges vary according to the USGS station. Two are low now and
one high. This will likely continue to change.
06/07/16 Two tailwaters are low and good to fish and one is high. This will change
constantly and you just have to keep checking. Several hatches are taking place.
06/21/16 The water is low to normal levels depending on which section you look at.
Our customers are reporting some nice catches with lots of hatching insects.
07/05/16 The stream levels are good, the water clear and lots of insects are
hatching. Our customers reported catching a lot of trout the past few days.
07/26/16 Customers are reporting very good fishing, with good numbers and sizes
of trout caught. There are still a lot of hatches including PMDs, Little Yellow
stones, Spotted sedges, Green Sedges, Little Sister caddis and more.
08/16/16 All USGS stations are running about average stream levels. Gateway is a
little. The weather is cooler and hatches have slowed some but terrestrials are
working very good. There are lots of caddis. Fish the egg layers late in the day.
09/06/16 The weather is turning a little cooler and that should really help the
overall condition of the river. Stream levels are normal to near normal and wading
possible in most sections. Two good reports came from customers this past week.
09/20/16 The stream levels are a little low in all sections, but otherwise, in good
shape. Mahogany duns are hatching as well as October Caddis.
09/27/16 The stream levels are back down a little below normal near Echo.
There is a good bit of rain in the forecast and they may remain high. Fall
hatches are going very good.
10/11/16 The Rockport dam discharges have been high at time but now should be
back on a good discharge schedule with better water levels. Blue-winged olives,
larger baetis species, are hatching very good.
11/01/16 The Mighty midge is again becoming important. Fish the larva and pupa in
tandem. See our Cream midges that are most plentiful. BWOs continue to hatch as
well. The discharges are staying a little on the low side.
11/15/16 Two good reports from the past week. Midges and Blue-winged olives are
hatching. The Brown sculpin streamer is also catching some larger size trout.
11/29/16 The discharges and stream levels are in good shape and anglers are
catching trout. Winter stoneflies, Midges and Blue-winged olives.
12/19/16 The water is about 39 degrees, which is okay, but mostly near the bottom
discharge of the turbines. Fish as close to them as you are allowed to do so. Midges,
creams and reds (blood) midges are hatching. Fish the larva and pupa in tandem.
01/03/17 There are few changes in the report. Those fishing the tailwaters near the
dams usually catch some trout on Midges and Winter stonefly nymphs, and sometimes
Black fly larva and pupa.
01/24/17 The Rockford tailwater is in good shape right now, but as always, watch the
levels. The lower tailwater is okay as well, but has some stain to the water.
02/07/17 They are discharging water at one tailwater but most sections are low enough
to easily wade. This will be changing. Fish streamers when cloudy or otherwise, midges.
04/04/17 The flows at Echo are high as well as Oakley and Gateway. The water is
getting a little warmer and it won't be long before hatches will begin.
04/25/17 All the discharges and stream levels are running too high to wade and highly stained.
05/16/17 The discharges and stream levels in all sections of the river are high, too
high to wade. You can fish some tailwaters from the banks, but that is about it. The
weather is turning cold with snow, but will have little effect on the runoff.
06/06/17 The stream levels in all sections are still too high to fish from the runoff. All
you can do is to stay in touch. We will keep you advised of the conditions.
06/20/17 The stream levels are down and the water mostly clear. There are a lot of
insects hatching. We haven't received any reports from anyone fishing yet.

are good and the water clear. Our customers sent in two good reports this past
week. Pale Morning duns, Pale Even. Duns, Spotted and Green sedges, 2 stoneflies.
08/08/17 The discharges and resulting stream levels are all about normal or a little
below normal. Good numbers of trout are being caught.
08/15/17 The discharges are staying about normal to a little below, which is good. It
provides wading opportunity in most all sections. We received two good reports.
08/29/17 The river below Rockport is low, but still turning out some good catches.
We received two good reports from it this past week.
09/05/17 The conditions are very good. We received two good reports from
customers this past week. Still some good hatches and terrestrials are working.
09/12/17 The discharges and stream levels are all in good shape. We are getting
some good reports from customers. There are still some good hatches and
terrestrials such as the Japanese beetle and Carpenter ants are working.
09/26/17 The discharges and resulting stream levels are low and wading safe and
easy. We are getting some very good reports. The cooler weather is a big help.
10/10/17 More good reports are coming in. Both tailwaters are in good shape
and turning out some nice trout. Blue-winged olives are hatching very good.

flows. Midges, creams and blood midges, or red ones and Winter stoneflies are
hatching good. Sculpin streamers continue to work good.
01/24/18 The discharges and stream levels below both lakes are normal or
below normal levels. There is a lot of bank snow, so don't slip in.
01/31/18 Fish the tailwaters below Echo and Rock near the dams as legal. The water is
slightly warmer. Cream and red or blood midges and Winter stoneflies.
02/21/18 The tailwater are the only places you might have a chance to catch some
trout. It is going to be very cold this coming week. Use Midges and Winter stoneflies.
