Before you go

Panguitch Lake

There's a lot of great fishing to be had at Panguitch Lake where trout like brook, rainbow, and brown are in no short supply. And it's not really surprising as Panguitch comes from the Paiute word meaning "big fish." Located 8,400 feet high atop the Colorado Plateau in southern Utah, the lake also welcomes visitors with lots of other recreational activities. You can partake in hiking, biking, canoeing, horseback riding, and camping. An ATV trail system provides more than 100 miles of cool trails.
