SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah Blue Ribbon Fisheries Advisory Council recently voted to designate a newly restored section of the Ogden River as a Blue Ribbon Fishery.
The 1.1-mile restored section of the river — located downstream from Washington Boulevard — is the 46th water body in Utah to be recognized, protected and appreciated for its unique recreational qualities.
In order to be designated as a Blue Ribbon Fishery, a water body must provide high-quality fishing, a quality outdoor experience, contain high quality fish habitat and provide an economic benefit to the community, according to the Division of Wildlife Resources.
The Utah Blue Ribbon Fisheries Program was established in 2005 and the advisory council oversees the program. Funds for the Blue Ribbon program come from people who purchase fishing licenses.
