Often referred to as the Boulders, Boulder Mountain is an 11,316 foot mountain and the highest timbered plateau in North America. It’s home to the Boulder Mountain Cinquefoil (Potentilla angelliae). This flower is native to the mountain and found nowhere else. Not only is it home to rare flowers, it is home to huge fish too.
The mountain was created by volcanic and glacial activity and as a result has some of the most fertile lakes in Utah. These lakes are best known for producing huge Brook Trout, with the state record being a 7 and a 1/2 pound monster! These lakes also produce big Grayling, Cutthroat Trout, Tiger Trout, Splake, and Rainbow Trout.
Access is difficult! A four wheel drive often is required just to reach the trail head to these lakes. The Quiet Fly Fisher guide service is a great way to explore the mountain safely and successfully while having a lot of fun exploring this beautiful area. We have fished it for over 20 years and would love to teach you it’s secrets.
