Februrary 17, 2015 Perfect Sight Fishing Conditions

Recently conditions on the Provo River have been ideal for sight fishing to trophy Rainbow and Brown Trout. The yearly winter flows in have resulted in low clear water.  The fish are congregated and willling to participate.  Some holes on the river have a large trout population that are occupying all water levels.  It has been fun to sight fish to these trout on recent fly fishing trips.  If you are staying in Park City or Salt Lake contact us for a fly fishing adventure.

February 7, 2015 One Fisherman Two Brown Trout

Mild winter tempatures have produced great fishing on the Provo River.  Simon from Australlia was site fishing to a pod a suspended brown trout when he set the hook on a subtle take.  After landing the fish, I kept the fish in the nes submerged in the water to get a quick photo.  Simon threw a cast to the pod and hooked another on the next cast.  The fish was quickly brought to the net and these fishy friends were reunited.  What a fun, productive day on the Lower Provo River.

May 8, 2014 Fishing Run-off

As the flows increase on the Provo River often times the fish respond as if they've heard a dinner bell. higher Water means more food available to the fish.  The Middle Provo and the Lower Provo are tailwaters that stay realitivly clear during high water allowing for some great fishing.  To book your fly fishing adventure on the Provo River call us at (435)654-1655

February 24, 2014 Winter Fly Fishing on the Provo River has been fantastic!

The Provo River is a tailwater fishery which means we enjoy great fishing all year.  This winter has been no exception.  The river's healthy trout population gorges themselves on midges this time of year.  The fishing can be great but you have to down size flies and tippet.  Its not uncommon for us to fish a 12-14ft 6x leader. March is going to be a great month to fish! Call and book you fly fishing trip today!! 435-654-1655.

July 9th, 2012-  A little persistence pays off in a BIG way

Andrew caught a fish of a lifetime two nights ago.  While guiding a trip recently he had a client hook into this monster but the big fish snapped his tippet on the first run.  Andrew went back over the last 2 weeks to try catch this impressive 26 inch fish.  Finally the big boy couldn't resist a secret mouse pattern that Andrew tied up.  After a 20 minute fight and a couple hundred yards from where he hooked the fish he was able to land this beauty.  This big guy is swimming in the same spot today.  There are some amazing fish out there to be caught with some persistence, skill, and a little luck we might all get this chance.  WAY to GO Andrew!!!
