Thanks to its Central Utah location east of the junction of I-15 and I-70, there are many ways to access the Fish Lake Scenic Byway (S.R. 25). Visitors on the All-American Road: Scenic Byway 12 connecting with the Capitol Reef Country Scenic Byway (S.R. 24) can continue west for 20 minutes to access Fish Lake while travelers on I-15 will exit at I-70 if northbound from St. George or U.S. 50 east if southbound from the Wasatch Front. Aptly named, the lake boasts excellent fishing, particularly large Mackinaw trout, splake, rainbow trout and kokanee salmon. In the winter, ice fishing, snowmobiling and cross country skiing are popular. Fish Lake is Utah’s largest natural mountain lake and sits at 8,848 feet. Also try fishing Johnson Valley Reservoir. The nearby towns of Koosharem, Fremont, Loa, Richfeld and Bicknell make excellent base camps to Fish Lake Scenic Byway.
