There is one entity that draws thousands of visitors from all around the world and that is the fishing. This section of the Missouri is known for its blue-ribbon trout fishing. These waters are filled with nutrients from the cold tail-waters from the bottom of Holter Dam creating a smorgasbord of feed for those finicky fish. As a result, the population of rainbow and brown trout surge averaging at about 7000+ fish per mile of river. These fish are frequently greater than 10 inches in length! The river is a playground offering year-round fishing. In addition to the plethora of fishing access sites along Interstate 15, there are numerous streams and creeks in the area to tackle. Holter Lake is a short 15-minute drive up above Holter Dam and is home to the "Gates of the Mountains." From there, Hauser Lake and Canyon Ferry Lake also provide excellent fishing and boating.
