Rick on a Provo River Float Trip


I had a fantastic day fishing with you, thanks again for your expertise, patience, and the fun we had together. You and I experienced, and the photos also captured the wonder and amazement in our smiles.

 Attached are the photos we took ,  I would greatly appreciate if you could send the underwater release video.

 I will recommend RMO to my friends and business associates.

Biggest Fish of the Year


With an open day in Salt Lake City on my schedule, I knew I needed to
head out fishing.  Since I always trust Orvis to provide quality guides, it was an easy choice to book Rocky Mountain Outfitters for a day on the Provo River. Doug (last name here) met me at my hotel in SLC, and we were fishing in 45 minutes.  I soon hooked into what I thought was a decent fish, but  had no idea what was on the end of my line for about 10 minutes.  Once we got a glimpse of this giant brown, we knew our work was cut out for us, and our net was useless.  Doug was a great team mate and helped me land the trout of a lifetime.  Twenty six inches and approximately 6pounds.  Thanks for a day to remember.

Day with Jonathan and Kelly

Rocky Mountain Outfitters,

Kelly and I just wanted to take a moment and thank you for the guide service you provided us during our honeymoon. I personally learned so much from talking to you and listening to what you were saying and watching what you were doing. The fishing was great and I don't think I have gone a single day since we returned home and not talked about the Provo River, your guide service or just the incredible fishing in general. You have a real gift and a great personality and being a business man myself, I take notice of that kind of stuff. I've included a few pictures that you can do what ever you wish with. If you'd like to put them on your website, submit them to Orvis or just keep them for yourself. I'll be sure to send some pics throughout the summer if I hook into any thing real nice. I plan on taking my father to the Battenkill River for father's day and I may even get a chance to fish the mighty Delaware River due to having some work out that way...we'll have to see though. I've also got my father talked into taking a trip back out to Utah, however, im not sure how soon.

 Thanks again and tight lines,

Jonathan and Kelly Meierdiercks

Walker Group

My name is Dan Walker, and on June 20th two friends and I went on an absolutely awesome fly fishing trip with Ryan
as our guide. Having two guide with us made for some  exceptional hands on teaching. All three of us would be
considered green fly fishers by any standard, but none the less, Ryan had us fishing and catching in minutes.
It turned out that the waters were running pretty high and fast on our day of fishing, which I understand would normally
reduce fishing successes, however our guides were so well versed that they didn't let the conditions reduce our catching
one bit. Moreover, personally, after being on many non-fly fishing trips in my life, I can say without a doubt that this was
one of the top fishing (and yes, even catching) experiences of my life. They were upbeat and supportive through the entire
four hours, and never once batted an eye at having to re-hook our lines after losing them (and we lost many of them).

Thanks again. We will definitely be back.

The Kokes


My name is David Koke and I fished with my son David Koke III  and the Chris Donner party last Friday June 22nd. Our guides were Mark Stevenson and Doug Acksolson (spelling?) first of all let me tell you those were two of the very best guides I have ever fished or hunted with in my entire life, bar none!  Both of them were so knowledgeable and patient --- it was a tremendous experience for the two boys (10 and 9 years old) and equally forthe adults too. Please extend my best regards to both of them again


My fiance' and I have been hiking for a while, so when we planned our honeymoon we wanted to try something different that would still allow us to enjoy the outdoors.  We booked one half day fly fishing trip with Rocky Mountain Outfitters and left the rest of our days open for hiking.  However, we were hooked instantly (no pun intended).  Our guide, John Patching, was better than we could have hoped for.  Not only was he an expert on fly fishing, but it was just like the proverbial fishing trip with your favorite grandfather. He was patient while we were learning, told stories of his own experiences and taught us all he could in the time we had.  Just being in the Provo River in the middle of the mountains and interacting with nature is an experience all on its own.  When we actually did catch fish the excitement was like no other; we didn't realize that "landing" a fish would be so exhilarating.  We enjoyed our half day trip so much that when we returned to the hotel we immediately booked a second trip and started looking into fly fishing opportunities back in our home state of Connecticut.  Don't skip the fly fishing!

The fisherman from Mars


Hey Joe,

Thanks for taking care of my equipment shipment, everything worked out really great.  Enclosed is a CD with pictures from my trip in August with Jeremy and last week with Scott. Both guides were excellent: well prepared, knowledgeable about the river, patient, and helpful.

On the August trip, I caught 19 of the nicest browns and rainbows.  The fishing was excellent from the first cast, 12" brown to the last cast of the day, 18" rainbow.  That day was the best day I have had in years for the size and steady fishing.  My compliments.

On the April trip (half day) the fishing was a bit more spotty, but the size and fight of the fish was super.  Scott got me into some great water with active feeding fish.  Great trips.  Enjoy the pictures.  I'll bet you don't get many fishermen from Mars!

Fishing Hot Toes Cold

Enjoyed a great day Saturday.  Fishing was action packed but the weather a little cold it made some great memories for my wife and I.  Our toes have their feeling back so all is well.  I can't wait to comeback to Utah for some great fishing and even better service. You guys are the best we've been with.  Rocky Mountain Outfitters has our confidence and business for  years to come.  You all run a first class guide service.

Best of fishing this summer.

Fly Fishing Success Story

Rocky Mountain Outfitters listened to my short-notice fly fishing request adn arranged for me to meet guide John Patching.  After 15 minutes of professional instruction and demonstration techniques,  I was up to my waist in 44 degree water...catching my limit and many more released....four hours of joy and excitement! Thanks!

Awesome April Day

Justed wanted to email and say thanks for an awesome trip.  We couldn't believe it could be so fun in Utah during April.  We came out to go skiing and ended up snowmobiling, horseback riding, and fly fishing.  Mike thinks he died and went to heaven.  Your guides were all wonderful fun people.  They took great care of us and made us feel like we were part of the family.  Thank you so much we will be visiting your place many more times.  Say hi to Amber, John, and John.  Here is a picture of my first rainbow trout.

To Rocky Mountain Outfitters

Enclosed are pictures from a spectacular day  of fly fishing on the Provo River.  The views were great and the fishing even better.  After my novice friend Bob caught 7 fish in one morning (notice the smile on his face), he actually thought fly fishing was easy.  I didn't tell him its all in having the right guides.  Thanks for everything, we will see you again next year.  All the best, Dan
