Made quite a few business trips to Provo and SLC in the past.  Never fished the Provo river, but drove by it.  My impression is that it was a nice looking stream with plenty of water to fish, but downside was that it has a busy road right alongside it through Provo canyon and lots of access.  Always saw at least a few people fishing so I am sure it gets lots of pressure.  Don't know the regs, but if there is a fly fishing only, catch and release section, that's where I'd fish.

            Ruthead,

                     Can't help you much with the Provo right out of town. When we were there in August that part of the river was like a circus. The flotilla of tubes, rafts, kayaks, paddleboards etc. was a spectacle to see. That being said that was before school and summer activities still going strong. I know you want to stay pretty close to town but i can help you further up the road. Follow the provo up into the lower unitas and it is more manageable. Go higher and can put you on some tiger trout. Here is our trip report for our trip west. Skip to page six and this is what you may want to try,

                 The provo may be a bit calmer now so you may strike gold there. Good luck and let us know how it goes,
