Weber River reports

Brent Taylor (W. B. Taylor) reported - 3 - Fair fly fishing: The Weber is slowing down for the WInter. The spawn in over. Looking forward to early Spring before the runoff starts. (11/15/09)
Sal Motrutta (Four Seasons) reported - 2 - Good fly fishing: Weber River (Below Rockport Reservoir): 834 c.f.s.

The mighty Weber is truly mighty at the moment. There is a lot of water moving between Rockport and Echo. This is good news both fishes and anglers! Increased flows will encourage some of the reservoir fishes to move up the river. The increased flows will help the resident fishes to re-shuffle and the resident insects to relocate and multiply. Seek out the softer water: either on the banks, structure or behind island features. Do not wade. Do not attempt to cross. If you can wade; you will be standing where the fish were before you stepped on them. Fish from the bank whenever possible and don't be afraid to cover ground in order to find the softer water.
The really neat thing about higher flows is that you can fish just about anything and catch a fish. The Weber fishes like sows, mayfly imitations and caddis larva and pupa. Play with your leader and weight configuration until you strike gold... or brown.

Sal Motrutta (Four Seasons) reported - 2 - Good fly fishing: Weber River (Below Rockport Reservoir): 780 c.f.s.

The Weber will serve as a great alternate to fishing the Provo right now. The stream flows are relatively lower and there has been a great caddis presence out and about on the water. However; the Weber is not famous for its dry fly opportunities. Most productive fishing has been sub surface related. Top producers have been sow bugs, mayfly imitations and caddis larva or pupa. There are a significant number of mountain whitefish in the Weber - but they will put a bend in the rod just the same as their more glamorous game fish cousins.

Sal Motrutta (Four Seasons) reported - 3 - Fair fly fishing: Weber River (Below Rockport Reservoir): 121 c.f.s.

The Weber has been kind of hit and miss for the past several weeks. It will serve as an excellent alternate to fishing the Provo; but may not be as hot and heavy with bug life. My speculation on this trend is that it relates to lower water flows and less thermal consistency than the Provo system.
Regardless; expect to do well on sow bugs near or at the river bottom. Secondary fly selections should include mayfly imitations in a hook size 18 and /or any variety of little olive midge larva. Most all productive fishing has been sub-surface.
I often hear complaints about catching whitefish on the Weber. Please remember that Senior Blanco likes flashy flies. Quit fishing rainbow warriors and copper johns if you feel that you are consistently attracting the wrong fish species. The trout will be more inclined to eat subdued and realistic insect imitations.

Randy Browning (RandallT) reported - 1 - Excellent fly fishing: Fishing has been great for the past month. The fish have recovered well from the spawn and winter and our now looking to eat. Sow bugs are definitely the food of choice, but don't overlook a larger meal. Soft hackles, wolly buggers, and stoneflies are good bets. Be sure to flip some rocks to match size and color. Rainbows are starting to filter up from the reservoirs and getting ready to spawn, so don't be surprised when a big bow hits the line. Be ready to sort through TONS of whitefish till the trout hit, but they're there just be persistent. (03/23/09)

Weber River descriptions

Andy Idema (aidema) wrote - The Weber River can be accessed via Interstate 84 east from Ogden. Fly anglers can expect to catch rainbow, brown, brook and cutthroat trout. The river is stocked and offers access via the many campgrounds along the stream. (08/16/08)
