A Blue Oasis Is Hiding In This Desolate Canyon In Utah
Some parts of Utah are pretty desolate and isolated. Much of Duchesne County is really underappreciated territory. Here’s a little blue oasis hiding in a desolate canyon. Check it out!
Lake Canyon Lake is located in Duchesne County, south of Starvation State Park.
This remote little lake is stocked by the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources with Colorado River cutthroat trout. In some of the shallow areas, you can even see the trout swimming around.
The lake is very small, covering just 36 acres.
Get there early, or camp overnight so you can start fishing at daybreak when the fish are hungry.
Only artificial lures and flies are allowed here. The limit is two fish, with only one cutthroat. However, you'll want to practice catch-and-release for smaller fish and those you don't intend to consume.
Steep cliffs with interesting rock formations make up part of Lake Canyon.
While the fishing can definitely be worth your time, the scenery is also amazing.
Most days, you'll have the lake to yourself. This is a truly quiet spot.
If you visit Lake Canyon Lake, make sure to pack out everything you packed in. Keep this area pristine and lovely for the visitors who follow.
