Paddle the Lakes 

Causey Reservoir

This 142-acre alpine reservoir restricts motorized boats, making it an idyllic location for kayaks, canoes, and stand-up paddleboards. It’s 5,700’ elevation makes for brisk swimming, but also makes it ideal for healthy populations of trout and Kokanee salmon, which run up Causey’s tributaries in a brilliant display of red every September.

Things can get quite busy mid summer, especially on a weekend. Be sure to go early to catch the sun rise from the middle of the lake and be sure to only park in designated parking areas. And remember. Pack it in , pack it out. 

Pineview Reservoir

Pineview Reservoir is a beautiful water offering outstanding opportunities for fishing and water sports. It is located in Ogden Valley, in the mountains east of Ogden. There is plenty of beach space to set up and have a nice day while you paddle out on the water. Be sure to only stay in no wake zones and be kind to your beach neighbor. Things can get busy during a mid summer weekend so consider going downtown for lunch and trying a mid week early morning instead.
