Utah Field Guide: Mapping the Provo River

While fishing the Provo River we ran into avid fly fishers Zach and Vanessa. They decided to combine their skills and produce a map every Provo River angler should have.

(Zach Scribner, Streamlinemaps.com) “A map of the middle here hasn’t been made since the Provo River restoration project came through and restored the river to it’s natural meandering, braided path. So it was really overdue and down in Provo Canyon there hasn’t been a map made since the highway has been updated through there. So both of those construction projects had a big impact on where you park and access the river. (adam) and Vanessa, some of the other features you have on here. (vanessa Holz, Streamlinemaps.com) so this map is water proof and tear resistant. Since a lot of the features were restored to their original path. Some of the parking had to be re-labeled and holes and runs are also noted on here. We’ve also got photo call outs on some holes and also just so you have landmarks so you can gauge on the river where you are. (adam) this would be perfect for someone who has never fished here before or not quite sure what flies to throw right? (zach) yeah you bet, we’ve all sorts of good stuff on there. We’ve got a hatch chart so at a glance you can get a good idea of what flies are going to be out on the water at any given time of year. And we’ve also got a chart that includes specific, proven patterns for the Provo River.

(Adam) So the next time you’re headed to the Provo and maybe you want to try somewhere new you can always pick up one of the maps at streamlinemaps.com or they said they also have them in many of the fly shops and I know Fish Tech also has them as well. Time now to turn it over to the guys and gals in the weather department for tonights recreation forecast.
