There is a variety of summer and winter fishing opportunities around Marysvale, Big Rock Candy Mountain, and the Paiute ATV Trail area of Utah.   There is excellent ice fishing in the winter at Piute Reservoir, Otter Creek Reservoir, and Fish Lake.   There are many fishing opportunities for fair weather anglers in streams, rivers and lakes.  


There are some native-born rainbow and brown trout that can usually be caught in Pine Creek that flows through the Bullion Creekside Retreat.  These trout are usually between 6 up to 12 inches.  Further up the creek are some excellent holes that have native cutthroat and rainbows.  Beaver Creek, Deer Creek, Cottonwood Creek, Manning Creek and the Sevier river all have fishable stretches that hold trout.  The Paiute and Otter Creek Reservoirs both usually have excellent fishing from shore or boat.  If one ventures out a little further there is more fishing including many lakes and streams.  Some of the locations are best fished with common trout baits such as worms, salmon eggs, or powerbait.  Other areas are best fished by casting lures.  Some of the rivers are suitable for casting small lures.   Bring your gear with you when you come to the retreat and we can advise you in more detail where to fish and what technique to use according to your skill level.  Following is a list of the angling places that I know of and would recommend:


Antimony Creek, Garfield County. This clear, cold stream is located southeast of Otter Creek Reservoir and Antimony. It’s lower stretch is populated with Brown Trout and wild Rainbows.  There are some pools and stretches that are ideal for fly-fishing.


Beaver Creek, Piute County. This small stream flows off the east side of the Tushar mountains and is accessible of the Beaver Creek Road east of Marysvale.  It contains rainbow and a few cutthroats.


Beaver River, Beaver County. This larger stream is located east of the City of Beaver. It contains Rainbow, Brown, Cutthroat, and Brook trout. Fishable tributaries include South Fork, Lake Stream and Merchant Creek.


Box Creek, Piute County. Rainbow and Brook Trout are found in this Monroe Mountain stream. Good access is available from the bottom end near the community of Greenwich.


Bullion Creek, Piute County. This clear cold stream is located up Bullion Canyon west from Marysvale and our vacation rental cabin.  It contains mostly rainbow and cutthroats.  There are wild cutthroats available above Bullion Falls which is only accessible by a strenuous hike. 


Clear Creek, Sevier County. Wild rainbow and brown trout are plentiful in the stream much of which is available within the Fremont Indian State Park.


Fish Creek, Sevier County. Located on the North slopes of the Tushar Mountains. This stream contains a good population of wild rainbows and some nice brown trout.


Fish Lake, Sevier County. This large, deep, cold lake is a good bet for trolling for rainbow. There are some lunker-size brown and lake trout for the expert anglers.  Winter ice-fishing fishing is great here. The lake is very picturesque located at about 9000 feet with surrounding mountains and forests.


Manning Creek, Piute County. This stream flows off the west side of Monroe Mountain, with headwaters at Manning Meadow Reservoir and Barney Lake.  The stream has cutthroat and brook trout.


Otter Creek Reservoir, Piute County. This reservoir consistently has good rainbow trout fishing. There is usually excellent ice fishing in this reservoir during the winter months.



Piute Reservoir, Piute County.  This reservoir usually has  small and mid-size rainbows available from the shore and by boat. There is usually excellent ice fishing in this reservoir during the winter months.


Sevier River, Piute and Sevier Counties. This small river has brown trout, rainbow and some cutthroat which are available in various stretches from Piute Reservoir downstream to the bottom of Marysvale Canyon.


East Fork of the Sevier above Otter Creek Reservoir has brown and rainbow trout. Some stretches provide excellent fly-fishing opportunities.

   Note from guest Stephanie Caine and party from Texas:

First of all we want to thank you for your hospitality. Your place is beautiful and both of you are wonderful people. We came to Utah for the first time this year and will definitely be back—to stay with you. Excellent accommodations and wonderful recommendations for trail riding. We ride every year in Colorado and we were all challenged this trip on the Paiute Trail. We all smile the whole way. I am an internet junkie and will give you an awesome review on Trip Advisor. Great meeting you both ! Keep up the good work ! Your place is awesome ! Thank you again from San Angelo, Texas.
