Check the current Utah fishing proclamation for possession limits and opening dates. Parking and restrooms facilities are available just below Soldier Creek Dam. From the dam downstream, access is on foot through a narrow, steep canyon. This stretch of the Strawberry River can also be reached at the Strawberry Pinnacles, southeast of Fruitland. From the Pinnacles, a dirt road follows the river upstream toward Soldier Creek Dam and offers some tremendous fishing.
Several tributaries to Strawberry Reservoir open during part of the year for artificial flies and lures. The fishing is all catch and release and the primary species is cutthroat trout. Streams are closed during spawning runs in the spring and fall. Check the current Utah fishing proclamation for a list of streams that open and season dates. Many streams can be reached from Highway 40 or the West Strawberry Road. Stop in at the Strawberry Visitor Center, located 23 miles east of Heber just off Highway 40, for maps and more information.
