Provo River

The Provo River flows a vast eighty-one miles from Mirror Lake in the high Uinta Mountains down through the beautiful Provo Valley eventually emptying into Utah Lake. The world-famous blue ribbon trout fishery of the Provo River consists of three different sections, referred to as the upper Provo, middle Provo and lower Provo. Each section of the river affords a unique ambiance and characteristic.

 

The Provo River is home to more than 3,500 wild brown, rainbow, and cutthroat trout per square mile in its most fertile reaches that thrive on the abundant aquatic insect life. In the most productive reaches, the average fish that populate the Provo River is an incredible 16-20 inches in size, with trophy trout exceeding an amazing 25 inches.The Provo River offers a wide range of fishing opportunities in spring, summer, fall, and even in the heart of the cold winter. Each season brings its own exciting opportunities to the angler, ranging from dry fly fishing in the early spring and summer months, to the fall and winter months when there is incredible sight fishing.

 

The Provo River is conveniently located forty-five minutes from Salt Lake City, twenty minutes from Park City, fifteen minutes from Provo, and a quick five minutes from Robert Redford’s Sundance Resort.

 

Weber River

The Weber River is similar in size to the Provo River and is located a short distance from Sundance Resort.  The Weber River is almost a mirror image of the Provo River flowing south while the Provo flows north. The Weber River also flows from the same Uinta mountain range just a short distance from the Provo River headwaters. In fact they are barely separated by a high mountain pass. The Weber flows south through two major reservoirs and has some spectacular fishing on its way to the Great Salt Lake where it ends its journey. We offer fly fishing guide trips on the Weber River year round and there can be some spectacular days fly fishing the Weber.

The Weber is well known for producing wild brown trout sometimes growing to trophy sizes well over 25 inches. Just a short 35 -minute drive from Sundance, the Weber River offers excellent access and much less angler traffic than the Provo River. It is well recognized for its abundant hatches, making for great nymphing year round. Furthermore, it offers excellent dry fly fishing in the summer on carpets of caddis and over-abundant hoppers, along with blue wing olive and Mothers Day caddis dry fly fishing opportunities from late winter through mid-May.

 

Remote Streams

In addition to private fishing water, Wasatch Guide Service can show you remote, out of the way smaller streams where few other anglers venture. Most serious fly fishing anglers have heard of the Madison, Snake, Henry’s Fork, Missouri, etc., but few have heard of the Strawberry River or Currant Creek. These are just two of the many different secret streams that our guides can show you. Of course, we aren’t going to reveal all of our secrets here!

These smaller, more remote streams offer some fantastic fly fishing, very often for big fish. Some of these spots even offer good opportunities for very large fish over 20 inches on dry flies! You aren’t going to read about them in any national publication, so let Wasatch Guide Service show them to you. These smaller streams are a one- to two- hour drive away from Park City or Salt Lake City and more often than not you will have the entire river to yourself. These streams aren’t for everyone since they require some extra effort to fool their wild trout. However, if you like to venture off the beaten path, hike a little, enjoy the scenery and stalk 20+ inch wild brown trout with dry flies, the extra work on these streams is worth the reward. These trips are full-day excursions only and are geared towards anglers with intermediate or higher levels of fly fishing experience.

 

LC Ranch

The LC Ranch is a Utah private fishing ranch with around 20 different lakes and ponds to fly fish offering large diversity. LC Ranch is located 1 hour and 45 minutes from Park City, Utah and about two hours and 15 minutes from Salt Lake City by car. There is also a small, private airstrip on the ranch for those with access to small planes.

The ranch is a private lake fly fishing oasis in the sagebrush-filled Uinta Basin of eastern Utah. Whether you are a hardcore angler with the intensity to fish hard all day, or just looking for a retreat to relax, eat some excellent down home food, and catch a few trophy trout in the process, the LC Ranch will have what you are looking for. The “ranch” consists of more than 20 ponds ranging in size from ½ acre little ponds good for a few casts to the biggest lake at around 15 acres where you can barely cover all the water in an entire day. The private lakes and ponds of the LC Ranch are diverse in both their structure and landscape and in the fish that are swimming in the depths. At LC Ranch, you will have a shot at a range of different species of trophy trout. There are Steelhead and Donaldson strain Rainbow Trout, monster Brown Trout, Brook Trout and even Tiger Trout. The fish in the ponds are not small, typically averaging 17 to 21 inches with many much larger. The current record is an astounding 17 pound behemoth Rainbow Trout! The LC Ranch is a perfect destination for fly fishermen of all abilities from first timer beginning fly fishers to well traveled experts.
