3rd Time and It Keeps Getting Better
"Yes- this is our third visit to the lodge in the last two years. We can't get enough of the variety of streams, the expertise of the guides, and the fabulous food. Hard to believe but we fished three streams we hadn't been on before and enjoyed every one. Also need to mention trying new Orvis rods - what a treat."
"My fly fishing husband made me come. I am certainly glad he did. Scott, the food was 5 star, Nikki, breakfasts were grand, Darlene ever so welcoming and Rosa kept all neat and clean as could be. Beautiful facility and just right for a wife who needed to relax."
Day Trip for a Diversion
"In the SLC area on business and decided to see what kind of fishing opportunities were available in the Wasatch and Uintas. Chose Falcon's Ledge based on recommendation from a friend and the 'Orvis-endorsed' seal of approval that has been successful for me. Spent seven hours on a one mile stretch of the Duchesne with Tim Johnson and plucked 16 Browns and one nice rainbow out of some really pretty waters surrounded by ebbing but gorgeous fall foliage. Fly fishing is not new to me -- have been doing it in some form or another since I was a kid (I'm now 61). Tim was not only great company but perceptive enough to know I didn't need and wasn't looking for constant instruction. It was a terrific day and money well spent. Would do it again in a heartbeat..."
Great time at the Falcon's Ledge
Fantastic four days fishing and hunting here in Altamont! The Strawberry was both scenic and a fantastic challenge. The bird hunting was a blast literally and figuratively! See you again soon!
"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lodge. The fishing was great, and so was the hunting. Our guides were professional and thorough. They treated us with dignity and respect. The cooks and other staff were very punctual and professional at their duties as well. We look forward to returning someday to enjoy that level of hospitality."
Great Time in Utah
The guides are the best in the business. The scenery and fishing is spectacular.
First Class In Every Respect
Lodging, meals, guides, staff--everything about this lodge was first rate. We spent three days fishing and hated to leave. Our guide, John Rock, was one of the best guides I have encountered. He was knowledgeable, patient, and excellent company. The scenery is outstanding. I would definitely recommend Falcon's Ledge.
Great 4 days
"Everything we hoped for and great stream fishing. Not crowded, great people, great guides, great fishing, great scenery."
Falcons Ledge Review
"I came into this fly fishing trip with little to no real experience fly fishing. Our guide John was a very understanding and knowledgeable individual. Over the course of three days, he was able to instill confidence to fish on my own after this trip, as well as coaching me into a competent fly fisherman. I can say with absolute certainty that I would not have been able to catch any of the fish that we saw in the rivers and ponds without his expertise. The lodge itself was very modern in its exterior appearance but very warm and inviting within the interior."
"We chose Falcon's Ledge because we love to keep our feet on the ground while we fish. The variety of streams and stillwater fishing is unmatched by anything we have seen. The guides are outstanding! They are experts on all fishing habitats, access points, and safety issues. We caught big and small fish and had a blast. Accommodations are outstanding. Dining is a delight. Special attention is given to dietary and housekeeping requests. We had great rapport with other guests in this gorgeous setting."
First time here, but not the last
"Could not be happier with the services provided. The guides couldn't have been better, and we have fished with other guides in the past. I appreciated their patience with teaching my wife how to fly fish. Because they took the time to teach her the skills needed, we can enjoy future fishing experiences together."
Great Trip as Usual
"I have made over 6 trips to Falcon Ledge, and each year is exceptional. The facility ,food, and guides are all top drawer. I cannot believe the river access that is available and the quality of fishing."
