Fly Fishing Information and Packing List
Looking for new gear and clothing for you trip, shop at Orvis.com
Fishing Policy: All guided fly 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.
• Utah fishing license is included in your adventure package.
• We recommend lightweight breathable waders. You will also need a good pair of wading boots with non-slip soles, NO felt soles. If you choose to “wet wade” as many of our guests do, be sure to bring quick-drying synthetic shorts and undergarments. Waders and boots are included in your package if you don’t want to bring yours.
Float Tubes and Fins
• For stillwater fishing, we provide float tubes and fins at no extra charge.
• 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.
• The use of a complete Orvis fly fishing outfit is included in your package.
• All flies are included in your package.
• Vest, chest pack, or other preferred method for keeping your fly fishing gear together
