UM CREEK--UTAH

Summertime in the high county of Utah opens up another world of fishing destinations, I decided to spend the weekend fly fishing some creeks in Fish Lake National forest. The first creek on my list was UM, from my parking destination I hiked back in a few miles feeling re assured I would be the only angler in the area. During the hike I realized my camera was not working, thank goodness for smart phones which made a great backup!


The area's I had chosen to fish was mostly open meadows that seemed to go on for miles.


The fishing was great, fishing this creek leads you to anticipation for possibly catching a tiger trout.I caught about 15 to 20 fish in about 4 hours.






Unfortunately I did not catch a tiger trout, although there's a chance the few fish that manged to get away could have been the tiger trout! All were cutthroat, none to large but for a creek definitely good size and a blast to catch, hoppers were the ticket!

I don't think I could have chosen a better day to be on the mountain, high of 71 and not a cloud for miles.
