Discover Ice Fishing
Utah's Division of Wildlife Resources and State Parks are teaming up to offer an ice fishing clinic at Steinaker Reservoir this Saturday! The clinic will start at 9 a.m. and run for three hours. We’ll teach about ice safety, lures, knots and fishing techniques.
If you don’t have a rod or reel, they will loan you a set up. They will also drill the holes and provide bait so everyone can try the sport. Don’t forget, you’ll need a fishing license to participate!
