Fishing - Located high atop the Markagunt Plateau along the Markagunt High Plateau Scenic Byway, Highway 14, is the Navajo Lake recreation area. Navajo Lake is the place to fish for all four types of trout: rainbow, german brown, brook and cutthroat. The lake was named from a violent encounter between Cedar City cattlemen and a Navajo Indian raiding party in the 1800s. Navajo Lake was formed when lava blocked off the natural drainage. Almost directly across the highway from Navajo Lake is Duck Creek and Duck Pond. Duck Creek is a picturesque stream with great fishing.
