Wildlife Viewing and More
The South Fork of the Ogden River between Causey and Pineview reservoir is moose country, so you won't be fishing alone! At times there are so many moose on the loose in this country that the state wildlife agency rounds them up with helicopters and ships them to other states in trade or augments existing Utah herds.
A weekend in this area is great for moose viewing, fishing and even taking in the night sky. Autumn weekends are ideal for visiting here. The route along State Road 39 from Huntsville to Woodruff is one of the best fall drives in the state (Read: Ogden River Scenic Byway Road Trip).
It’s worth noting that this area of the river has had positive results for whirling disease, so please be vigilant when cleaning off your equipment at the end of the day. Also, be certain to not leave behind any fish entrails or bones near the water.
There are multiple entry points for anglers wanting to fish the South Fork of the Ogden. There is a checkerboard of private and public land, so be aware of where you are walking and fishing. The Magpie Campground and Memorial Park are two great destination options for anglers making their first trip to the South Fork of the Ogden.
