Utah fishing license is included in your adventure package. NO fishing license is required when fishing our private stillwaters.
All fishing is catch and release. All fishing is done with a fly rod and reel, using only artificial flies as bait.No live bait, spinners or treble hooks of any kind. When fishing on the stillwaters all flies must be barbless or have the barbs crimped down. Please take pictures of your catch, but do it quickly and carefully so you do not harm the fish.
Our altitude ranges between 5,500 feet and 8,000 feet above sea level in a high mountain range. Weather can be very unpredictable, from cool mornings and evenings to warm afternoons. Rain is possible in spring and late summer into fall. Dress in layers for the most comfortable fishing. Include in your fishing clothes, rain gear, long sleeve shirts, sunscreen, a brimmed hat, and polarized sunglasses (a must). An extra pair of socks and long underwear is helpful in keeping warm while in a float tube or waders. We have these items and layering pieces available in our Pro-Shop or shop on-line at ORVIS® from the link on this page.
All equipment will be furnished by us, including flies. You are welcome to bring your favorite rods, reels, flies, and waders. 8 1/2 or 9 foot five-weight rods are our favorites for their versatility, however, many of the smaller streams may be fished with shorter three and four-weights. You may also try out any of the many new ORVIS ® rods available in the Pro-Shop. We carry primarily 4, 5, and 6 weight rods and reels. We have a selection of weight forward and double taper floating lines as well as clear intermediate and slow sinking lines for the stillwaters. If you bring your own waders we suggest that they be breathable for your overall comfort and ease. We provide Orvis breathable waders in most sizes. Please advise us if a special size will be required. We stock a large selection of our favorite flies as well as two fly tying stations to produce any special fly pattern you may wish to use.
All flies used on the stillwaters must be barbless or have the barbs crimped down.
Insect repellent, sun screen, liquor, digital or film camera, prescriptions and toiletries should be included in your packing.
For the safety of your pets and as a courtesy to our guests, pets are not allowed in the lodge. Guest’s dogs are not to be left unattended in the canyon and no pets are allowed to accompany guests while fishing. We have four outdoor kennels available for hunting dogs.
Due to state liquor license restrictions, we do not provide alcoholic beverages. You are welcome to bring your favorite beverage. We have mixes for liquor and refrigeration available for beer and wine. We will gladly serve your wine with dinner.
