My father-in-law called me this morning and wanted to hit the lower section of the Provo river. I had a few hours before I needed to leave for the Utes last home game of the season (they won 38-7 against San Diego St) so we went. First off, I've never been a real fan of fishing the Provo river for a few reasons. Despite being a blue ribbon fishery, It's almost always crowded and quite frankly, the river has had my number! I've never been able to catch fish consistently out of the thing! But today I was excited to try out some of the new techniques I learned from fishing the Weber river with Joe the past couple of weeks. We only had an hour and a half to fish and in that time I landed 2 browns and missed a few others. My father-in-law also had a few takes. The first one I caught looked to be a few inches bigger than the one pictured but he decided to unhook himself at my feet before I had a chance to take a picture. It wasn't fast fishing, but I was excited to actually catch more than one fish on the Provo in one trip, which is a first for me. We will definitely have a lot more trips on the Provo, only this time, I have my sights on the middle section.
