HEBER CITY — Wildlife enthusiasts are invited on June 14 to view migrating cutthroat trout in Strawberry Reservoir.
Right now, many of the reservoir's cutthroat trout are migrating out of the reservoir and up the Strawberry River to spawn. The river runs past the visitors center at the reservoir and into a fish trap and egg-taking facility the Division of Wildlife Resources operates behind the visitor center.
The event will happen from 9 a.m. to noon at the fish trap and egg-taking facility.
During the viewing event, biologists will net cutthroat trout. They'll then hold them up so attendees can photograph and touch the fish. Biologists will also offer explanations and answer questions about the role the trout play in Utah.
"Even though the Strawberry River and the other tributaries to the reservoir are currently closed to fishing, you can still try your luck catching one of these big cutthroats in the reservoir itself," said Scott Root, regional conservation outreach manager for the DWR.
