EAST CANYON STATE PARK, Utah (ABC4 Utah) The beauty of East Canyon lures you in alone, but this is one of the few state parks that has fishing guides on site, so you can snag some summer fun.
It’s easy and fun to reel in adventure and a variety of fish at East Canyon State Park.
Zack and Jason are fishing guides and they know the reservoir in and out and want to help get your family hooked on the sport…whether it’s from the shore or the boat.
“The fish are feeding all day long up here. You can bring the family up at 12 o’clock, still catch some fish. Most places it’s early bite, but it’s hard for families to get here early, but come up in the afternoon-let’s show you a couple spots to do it and you guys can catch fish,” said Zack Angelos.
Charting your own trip on the water isn’t too tough with ClubRec Rentals standing by.
“Boats, pontoon boats, fishing pontoon boats, all the non-motorized. The stand up, canoe, most popular is paddle boards and we have some big inflatables like the slide you see behind me, kids love those,” said Casey Pratt with ClubRec Rentals.
East Canyon became a state park back in 1962….and Utahns have been recreating here ever since. It runs along the historic Mormon Pioneer Trail and offers a family friendly camp scene on top of all the fun.
“We’ve got campgrounds for your trailers and tents and if you don’t have any of those we’ve got cabins and yurts for when you come up here,” said Chris Haramoto, Park Manager.
It’s a prime spot tucked away in Salt Lake’s backyard.
“That’s the beauty of East Canyon. It’s so close. About a half hour away, but you’re not going to find any of the jammed parking lots you find at places like Jordanelle or those other big state parks, were truly one of those secrets on the backside of the Wasatch,” said Haramoto.
