Need help fixing lawn - pics inside


LawnSite Member
USDA Zone 5, North-Central Utah.

I Laid sod two years ago, since then we have been in drought, had sod worm problems, and a few other things (new to lawncare, had to re-design some sections of sprinklers, etc.)

Anyway, I think that I have my lawn under control now, but problem is, I feel a portion of my grass is dead and will never return to life. I thought last year it was just hibernating, but it didn't ever seem to come back to life. I am pretty much convinced that everything still brown in the pictures below is dead.

The portions of my grass that are alive get very green and grow well, but I need some advice on repairing the damage. I have been thinking that I need to power rake my lawn to remove anything dead, then reseed, but I am not sure. Any advice is helpful, thanks!

Here are pictures:
