My favorite local beach is beautiful Pineview Reservoir. Try to hit the waters early in the morning for glassy conditions. You can boat, kayak or paddle board with the Wasatch Mountains as a backdrop. Pineview offers awesome opportunities for water sports including fishing, water skiing, jet skiing , kayaking, paddle boarding, and wake boarding. This lake is completely surrounded by mountains, so the wind is minimal and the water is usually calm, especially on weekdays. The lake has great sandy beaches and paved launch ramps.
Pineview offers a unique blend of sport fish, including smallmouth bass, crappie, perch and bullhead catfish, and trophy-sized tiger muskie. Tigers are a hybrid blending muskie with northern pike. They grow large and attack lures aggressively. The Utah state record tiger muskie, a 49-inch fish that weighed 33 lbs, 9 oz, was caught in Pineview. The South Fork of the Ogden River flows out of Causey Reservoir through the surrounding canyon, and into Pineview Reservoir. You can catch brown trout, cutthroat trout and rainbow trout on the South Fork. The South Fork has relatively consistent flows and water temperatures, thus produces excellent hatches and, some large trout. The South Fork of the Ogden is one of the few streams in the state that is home to the famous salmonfly. Although present in other local waters, this insect typically emerges during peak runoff, rendering the hatch unfishable. As a tailwater, however, the South Fork is not often affected by runoff, making the salmonfly hatch worth a visit.
