The Provo River, less than a 30 minute drive from the Newpark Town Center, offers some of the most scenic fly fishing in the world. The river is classified as a blue ribbon trout fishery. Brown and rainbow trout are prevalent in the Provo, with many fish running 18 inches or bigger. In some areas the Provo offers 3,000 or more trout per mile. As a result, the pristine waters of the Provo River provide a memorable experience for the experienced angler as well as beginners.
In addition, numerous blue ribbon streams wind their way throughout the Park City area, including East Canyon Creek and Spring Creek, both within easy walking distance of Newpark Town Center.
