Catching the “ugliest fish in the West” is a tradition at the beginning of every new year at the annual Burbot Bash. The illegally stocked burbot in Flaming Gorge Reservoir continue to have a devastating effect on the fishery. Burbot are a freshwater cod that is actually native to waters east of the continental divide. In response to the threat of this unwelcome invader, multiple agencies host the annual Burbot Bash ice fishing derby every January. The Bash is considered a great way to introduce anglers to the family-friendly sport of ice fishing that is so popular in Flaming Gorge. The advantage of joining the fun during the Burbot Bash event is the chance for some serious prize money. Visit
