The fishing has been pretty good up here at Falcon’s Ledge. The lakes have been busy with Callibaetis and midges. Streamers have also been effective stripped slow. The most effective way to catch fish now is with a dry dropper rig with the dropper being 4-6ft long and 6-8ft long when it’s sunny and warm.
All the lakes are clear and the fish are hungry. Guests have had success using just dry flies during the midge hatches. Evenings have been best using a parachute adams.
The rivers are experiencing runoff now with all the warm weather we’ve been having. It’s possible to catch fish but be careful with the high flows. Focus on river edges and pockets for fish. Dry-droppers have been successful when fishing near the banks and deeper runs.
Bugs to have:
Lakes- Black, Brown, Olive Woolly Buggers, Mini leaches, callibaetis nymphs, Phlamin pheasants, SOS‘s, Copper Johns, Parachute Adams, Parachute Callibaetis, Zebra midges and Chironomids.
Rivers- Stimulators, Royal Wulff, Parachute Adams, Phlamin Pheasant, SOS, Pheasant Tail, Prince Nymph, Stonefly Nymph and Copper John

keoni with a nice spring rainbow
Spring fishing has been great on the lakes at Falcon’s Ledge and Six Lakes. Like every spring, some of the bigger fish are being caught with chironomids and various small nymphs under an indicator. The fish are cruising in the shallows and just off drop-offs near the edges. Long casts are not usually needed this time of year.
If you see fish rising, switch to a dry dropper rig. Drop the nymph 4-8 inches below dry.
Buggers and leach patterns are also effective this time of year. Stripping bugs near the bank has been producing some nice fish.
Bugs to have are:
-Black Chironomids size 12-18
-Zebra Midges size 16-22
-Pheasant tails size 16-18
-Copper John Red size 14-18
-Leaches black size 6-10

Early winter fishing on the Provo River
The high uinta’s temperatures have been dipping for quite some time now and the fishing has slowed way down. We had a great year on the high mountain streams and already can’t wait to fish them next summer. The fishing has been excellent on the Provo and Weber rivers. The BWO’s fishing has been great the last couple of weeks with the great weather we’ve been having. We expect the midges to heat up and the Bwo’s to cool off soon. With the colder weather approaching means less crowds on the river.
The nice thing about the Provo and Weber is that you can have great fishing year round. You can fish midges in the dead of winter which can produce some excellent dry fly days. If the midges aren’t around then you can nymph with sowbugs, PT’s, HE’s and scuds and bring plenty of fish to the net. Here’s a list of some good patterns to use on the Tailwaters:
-Zebra Midge(black) 16-22
-Pheasant Tail 18-20
-Higa’s SOS 16-20
-Iron Lotus(BWO) 16-20
-Egg pattern(peach) 14-18
-Griffith’s Gnat 16-20

The Lake fishing at Falcon’s Ledge has been excellent. The days have been cool to warm which has these fish in feeding mode. The lakes have been seeing some good callibaetis hatches along with a few damsels and midges.
The rivers and streams are low and haven’t really seen much runoff yet. Expect the rivers to be high in the next couple of weeks. Dry droppers are the most effective way to fish focusing on the deeper pools and runs. Cover lots of water quickly for best results.
Flies to have are:
Dries- Para Adams, PMX, Griffith’s Gnat, Caddis, Callibaetis
Nymphs- Damsel nymphs, Chironomids, Hare’s Ears, Callibaetis

The Provo River has been fishing great the last couple of weeks. The browns are spawning so be careful when wading upstream to not walk on any reds. The most productive time of day has been from 10am-3pm. Sow bugs, Zebra Midges and Egg patterns have been working well. When the fish start surfacing then a Matt’s midge, Griffiths Gnat, Double bead midge and Bunny midges have been fooling fish on top.

The Lakes at Falcon’s Ledge and Six Lakes are getting cold and will freeze in the next week or two. The fish are active and are chasing streamers during the warmest times of the day. Black buggers have been the most consistant producer along with Olive and white.
The streams are too cold and have turned off for the season.

The fishing this fall has been excellent. The weather is cooling down and the fish are preparing for the colder months ahead. Streams such as the Yellowstone and Uinta are producing good numbers of brook trout and rainbows. Flies to have here are Parachute Adams, Royal Wulff, Hoppers and PMX’s.
The stillwaters are picking up and the fish are keying in on ants and beetles. When the fish are not feeding on the surface a woolly bugger will do just fine.

Fishing on the streams and rivers have been great and will continue to be good as the temperature stays in the 80′s. The stillwaters are fishing great in the morning and evenings.
Yellowstone Cr.- Producing great numbers of fish on dries and droppers. Covering a lot of water is the best way to increase numbers of fish and possibly catch a grand slam. Flies to use are: PMX’s, Stimulators, Hoppers, Bugmeisters, Copper Johns, Prince nymphs and Caddis.
Rock Creek: The water is a little higher and off color than normal. Fishing with streamers along the edges and under cut banks has been producing. Flies to have are: Black Buggers, EH Caddis, Hoppers, Trudes, Prince nymphs, Copper Johns, Hare’s Ears and Pheasant tails.
Duchesne River: Fishing has been fair to good. The water is still a little warm and the fish are not as active. As the weather cools down the fishing will heat up.
Strawberry River: Unusually high flows for this time of year. Fishing is tough.
Stillwaters: Early A.M. and Late P.M fishing are the best times to fish the lakes. Midges are hatching at the coolest times of the day. Fliest to have are: Black, red, green chironomids, zebra midges, blood worms, para adams, ants, beetles and hoppers.

The rivers around Falcon’s Ledge are getting better and better. The water is finally down to fishable levels and the fish are hungry.
Yellowstone Cr.- Fishing is good. Fishing with attractors has been very productive along edges of current and near banks of the river. In deeper pools a dry dropper works well. Flies to have are: Royal Wullf’s, Stimulators, PMX’s, EH Caddis and Hoppers.
Rock Creek- Water is still a little high but the fish are eating. Good hatches of PMD’s and Caddis are bringing fish to the surface. Flies to have: PMD’s, Para Adams, Stimulators and PMX’s
Uinta River- Fishing has been excellent. Brookies and Cutthroats are attacking anything that floats over them. Flies to have: Royal Wullf, Royal Trude, Bugmeister and Hoppers.

Some of the best dry fly fishing is just around the corner so get those bugs ready and get out here.
