The Plateau Fishlake unit regulates hunting opportunities for cougar in Utah and covers 685 square miles. Public lands comprise 585 square miles (86%) of the total land covered by this wildlife management unit. The greater region is best serviced by Aurora, Sigurd, and Koosharem. The elevation of the region ranges from a low of 5,200 feet to a high of 11,600 feet above sea level. Wildfires have burned nearly 9 acres here in the last two years, providing opportunities for new vegetation and attracting a variety of wildlife. There are 7 trailheads that provide public gateways to these forested areas: Fishlake National Forest. Additionally, 6 sites are open to the public for access to managed private lands.
