The Green River

The Green river is one of the most beautiful and well-known rivers in the united states. Anglers from all over the country flock to the Green because of the great hatches and beautiful location. Falcon's Ledge is located just under two hours away. Most of our clients venture out after spending a few days with us to break up the trip. For most it's their first time fishing this magnificent tailwater.A couple of us from the lodge had the opportunity to head over and fish the Green with SteveO from Trout Creek Flies. He invited us out to fish with him and took him up on his offer. We met him at Trout Creek in the am and decided we were going to do an A-B float. The A section was beautiful and we saw lots of fish. In order to get down to the ramp on time we had...

Fishing in High Water

Most rivers experience high water and the fishing can be very difficult. Areas that are usually accessible are not and it forces you to figure out new tactics to fish your favorite water.I recently visited my favorite run on my local river with a friend. She's new to fishing and wanted a chance at a healthy fish.  The side of the river I normally fish  from was not easy to access because of the high water.

Utah's Green Drake Hatch

One of the best hatches of the year in Utah is the green drakes.  About the third week of June every year the green drakes hatch on many of the rivers in eastern Utah and the trout feast on them making for some of the best dry fly fishing of the year.  Here is a short video by one of our great guides, Bryan Eldredge, highlighting the great green drake hatch and the top water action it produces.  If you haven't experienced this hatch before you need to get out here the last two weeks of June and fish the great hatch.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0KoEJbsDDa4...

Quick Tip: How to Cast in Tight Quarters

This time of year, I spend a lot of time on small mountain streams, where the trout lies are surrounded by vegetation, rocks, and different kinds of current. In this video, Klent Klewein of Gink + Gasoline shows you the best way to cast to such spots. His first piece of advice is the most important: get as close as you can, so you can keep your line off the water and avoid drag....
