Bull sharks are notorious for swimming out of the salty ocean and venturing out and venturing hundreds of miles up freshwater rivers. They can easily adapt to the change. With Pineviews unique ecosystem,  the sharks evolved, adapted and are at the top of food chain.

The bad news is… There have been recent shark attacks and  sharks are literally snapping Tiger Muskies in half.

Harry Manwood, a Bountiful man was one of the sharks latest victims.

“Swimming will be closed for the summer until we completely drain the reservoir and get rid of the sharks” Said, Red Peters of the DWR.

Anglers are allowed to catch as many as you want. But you must kill the invasive species.

  1. I’ve not seen your site before so I’m wondering how accurate this is. I’m an avid shark lover and am not comfortable with the killing of the sharks

  2. How about you change your attitude and try to preserve these sharks, spend a few quid and appreciate the beauty of these creatures!
    After all, someone has encouraged them to be there!
    Make them fit the bill!
    Put them back where they are supposed to be!
    Do the right thing!

  3. This shit about sharks and giant muskies at pineview is a bunch of bullshit. Idk if u get off on trying to scare people out of the water or what. But your a lying bullshiting coward.

  4. I took a late drive up to Pineview Last night and I ran into Bigfoot riding one of this so call Bullsharks. l ask him what he was up to and he responded with I am getting ready for the Ogden Pioneer Days.

    1. LOL, LOL, LOL!!! I can’t stop laughing, but.., I’m not going to Pineview to ski, until I can get more info. Let’s try Utah Fish& Gameeee

  5. Please do not kill the sharks. Someone illegally introduced the sharks there and it is not their fault they are there. Something needs to be done to move the sharks safely back to their home. Have a heart please. If we keep being destructive to our environment there are not going to be anything left for your future generations to see.

  6. I AM SURPRISED THAT SHARKS CAN BE IN FRESH WATER. WE ARE THINKING OF BUILDING A CABIN IN PINEVIEW. ARE THERE REALLY SHARKS?
