Fishing along the Bear River and certain Refuge canals is an enjoyable past time in the summer and fall months. Catfish and bullhead, along with invasive Asian carp, are the most common species caught.

    Most of Utah and the Refuge's fish species are non-native, stocked game fish.  The main fish to be caught in the Bear River and Refuge canals is channel catfish, but there are several native species of chub in Refuge canals and wetlands as well.
