A large sucker of the Rocky Mountains, the Utah Sucker is a tough, hard-fighting river fish that feeds on aquatic insects and crustaceans along the bottom of streams. It's a common fish that, like the majority of its relatives, makes for a good meal as well. Like the rest of the suckers, they're great eating for any fishermen manly enough to get over their hangups about bones in their fish fillets, or who can learn how to use a knife properly.
Utah Suckers can be caught on worms or shrimp, and will sometimes chase flies. They can even be caught through the ice! Fighting a big Utah Sucker on ice tackle is a world-class ice-fishing achievement.
