For the best fishing opportunities around Mountain View, head north of town where the White River and Sylamore Creek merge. There you’ll find ample streams and lakes to cast your line.
Predominant fish in this area include rainbow trout, cutthroat, brown trout, and smallmouth bass (which is present during the spring & fall). Rainbow trout continues to be the most widely caught fish, but the other varieties are also abundant in the area.
Greers Ferry Lake & Little Red River are two popular spots to consider as you plan you visit, but plenty of offshoots and quiet streams exist for those looking for some peace & quiet.
