by | May 15, 2024 | News | 0 comments

A fishing emergency change has been issued in Duchesne County. Due to an upcoming rotenone treatment aimed at restoring native cutthroat trout, the DWR issued the emergency change to increase the fish limit at Fall Creek and its tributaries, including Phinney and Anderson lakes. The emergency change was issued by the DWR director on May 13th which now allows anglers to keep up to 16 trout of any species while on Fall Creek or its tributaries. The rotenone treatment is scheduled for the summer of 2025 to remove non-native fish from the area. The lower end of Fall Creek is roughly 9 miles from the Rock Creek Trailhead. The upper end of Fall Creek is roughly 12 miles from the trailhead. Learn more at
