Trout Fishing

Dixie National Forest is a nature lovers paradise. Navajo Lake, Duck Creek, Duck Pond and Aspen Mirror Lake offer great trout fishing. You will see the sign near the Duck Creek campground to turn off toward the pond. As you turn in you will usually find the waters edge lined with fishermen. To find the head of Duck Creek, begin at the pond.  The water flows past the village then it goes under ground. If you are planning to stay the night, the Duck Creek Campground is adjacent to the pond and creek. Aspen Mirror Lake is another of the gems on Cedar Mountain. The aspen lined, mountain lake is stocked with rainbow trout. To find Aspen Mirror Lake, turn on the north side of Highway 14 near mile-marker 29, at the small sign. You will have to park and hike the scenic half mile trail to the lake.

Navajo Lake

This 3 mile long, picturesque lake is located high atop the Markagunt Plateau just off Highway 14. The lake was named from a violent encounter between Cedar City cattlemen and a Navajo Indian raiding party back in the 1800’s. The lake was formed when lava blocked off the natural drainage flowing into it. Fishing is allowed on the lake where you will find four types of trout; Rainbow, German Brown, Brook and Cutthroat Trout. There are camp sites near the waters edge. Cedar Breaks National Monument is located 5 miles northwest of the lake. If you are interested in camping, there are campsites at Navajo Lake as well as at the monument. Small fishing boats are allowed.  Hiking and biking trails are found in the Navajo Lake recreation area. If you want to stretch your legs take the Navajo Lake Loop Trail that goes around the lake.

Panguitch Lake

Panguitch Lake is a 777 acre, natural lake, located about twenty-minutes east of Cedar Breaks National Monument in Dixie National Forest.  The lake is well known as one of Utah's best trout fisheries. In the Paiute language, "Panguitch" means "big fish." Located at a high elevation, 8,400 ft, the lake freezes in the winter, but as the ice thaws in mid-April the fishing is excellent. The fish include: Brook Trout, Cutthroat Trout and Rainbow Trout.

Naturalist NotesNature Notes

Pines trees are abundant on Cedar Mountain. The prime time to collect pine nuts in Utah is October. These small, dark brown, tough shelled nuts are a favorite treat of many. If you are looking to search the forest for the seeds you will have to compete with the wildlife. Often when you go to check out a pine cone it has already been emptied by some grateful critter. Younger trees do not produce seeds so look for the older variety.
