Climate - The climate of Utah varies with the terrain. Visitors to the mountains will experience cool summer nights and passing storms that can alter a sunny day very quickly. Be prepared with layers when recreating in the mountains. The deserts and canyons of Utah can be dangerous places. Summer temperatures often reach above 100 degrees F, so be sure to carry water on all adventures. Flash floods in the canyons are also a threat. It is difficult to predict incoming weather when deep within a canyon so check reports before venturing into any narrow canyon areas.

Location - Echo Reservoir is located north of Coalville and is accessed from Ogden on I-84. Access from Salt Lake City on I-80, east Exit 164.

Report: Echo by far is one of the hidden secrets for fisherman in Northern Utah. On the Wyoming border this small resivoir hass everything you need. Plenty of camping area, a small store and lots of room to fish. Trout (Rainbow, Brown's..) are the usual catch of the day with an occasional small mouth bass. SHore fishig for perch is great for the kids, but for the good size trout, you need to get out towards the center of the resivoir. Troll from one end to the other with pop gear and a small clown rapalla and you will get some good eats.
