Visiting Utah in the dead of Winter and wondering what one might have to do? We're pleased to say that there are a number of great options available when you stay at the Flaming Gorge Resort.
The predatory Burbot fish has been illegally introduced, hurting all the sport fishing. That is why, for one weekend, fisherman can come catch as many as possible. Flaming Gorge resort has teamed up for the one week fishing event.
The 2013 Burbot Bash starts on Friday, February 1st to Sunday, February 3rd. Register your team of 2-4 members and be eligible for great prizes in a variety of categories with a $20,000 cash prize to the luck fisherman that catches a tagged burbut and gets his or her name draw. See the Flaming Gorge Chamber Website for registration and more information.
Flaming Gorge Reservoir is a hot spot for summer fishing but realistically is an amazing fishery year-round. Green River guided fishing trips are available so you can fish with a guide familiar to the area. If you would like, take the day to try your skills at fly fishing! Green River is perfect for fishermen amateurs and professionals alike. There are also many different small lakes and streams that surround this beautiful Flaming Gorge Recreational Area.
Winter in Flaming Gorge can be just as fun as the rest of the season. The Ashley National Forrest offers some of the greatest snowmobiling in the area. Be sure to check out the Snowmobiling Information to start your winter vacation.
