Fishing Logan River

Logan River   |  Jay Dash
  • Weather: Chance Snow Showers, 40F

The Logan River offers vast swaths of fisherman access, inordinate insect hatches and a fantastic fly-fishing ambiance for brown, rainbow, cutthroat and brook trout. Big bugs and small water merge in the Logan and its tributaries — including The Blacksmith Fork — creating a very sight-oriented experience with salmonflies, green and grey drakes buzzing throughout the river’s passage.

The Logan is an incredibly diverse fishery. Starting from the bottom, the Logan’s “urban” section from Cutler Reservoir through the three-dam configuration provides a completely different fly-fishing experience than the river above Card Canyon Bridge. The three small impoundments on the lower Logan provide great fishing opportunities for the whole family, with plenty of stocked rainbow trout and the potential for hooking a monster brown. As you move up canyon towards the Logan's headwaters the dream stream becomes a reality.

Classic attractor patterns like the royal wulff, humpy, rainbow warrior and prince nymph will catch you fish all summer long, but we want to let you in on a little secret. While The Logan will produce green drakes during their normal timing in May and June, the insects will make a second appearance, with their close cousin the grey drake, in August and September. Don't believe us? Fish it for yourself.
