The most amazing fact about the Sevier River is that it flows NORTH. The Sevier River in Marysvale Canyon is a road-side stream in a confined canyon. The canyon provides a narrow rocky channel and a relatively high stream gradient that results in good trout habitat.
Brown trout fingerlings are stocked annually in Marysvale Canyon and regularly produce trout up to 17 and 18 inches long. Some lunker-size trout have been reported from this section of river. Rainbow trout move downstream from Piute Reservoir and some wild rainbow trout are recruited to the river from tributary streams, such as Deer Creek, Pine Creek, Clear Creek and Beaver Creek. A rare smallmouth bass can be taken in this section of river that has come out of the reservoir. The fishing is usually excellent whether you fly fish, bait fish, or spin.
Wildlife abounds along the Sevier River, many creatures call this place home, including; deer, elk, mountain lion, bobcat, bear, badgers, beavers, porcupines, rabbits, coyotes, hawks, and even a few eagles. Bird watchers will find the Sevier River Valley in Marysvale Canyon plentiful with a variety of species.
