During the summer and fall our Orvis-endorsed guides provide wade/walk fly fishing on our home waters, Rock Creek, the Duchesne, Lake Fork, Strawberry, Uintah, Whiterocks and Yellowstone Rivers. We hold the only National Forest Utah fly fishing guide permits for Whiterocks, Uintah, Yellowstone, Lake Fork and Rock Creek, you will not run into other guided fisherman on these rivers. These and many smaller streams on the south slope of the Uintas provide the excitement and challenges of catching wild trout. These mountain freestone streams and tailwaters are guided as catch and release to sustain the population of native wild fish. We can arrange for guided float trips on the famous Green River as well.
Fall is an amazing time of year to be at Falcon’s Ledge Lodge fishing the beautiful rivers around the lodge. The fall colors are spectacular in the Ashley National Forest and the fishing is good. The fish are hungry and eager to hit hoppers, ants, beetles, and other terrestrial patterns.
The eight private trout lakes on the property also fish well during the fall. The trout are active and looking for food and it is one of the best times of the year to catch large trout on the property. Woolly buggers and leech patterns are always good patterns when fishing these lakes and work great in the fall. During the warm afternoons and evenings midge hatches are possible and dropping a zebra midge or crystal midge off a strike indicator or dry fly about 20 inches is effective during these midge hatches. In the afternoons in September parachute hoppers and ants cast along the cattails and grassy banks will often produce great dry fly takes from large trout. Once the nights start getting below freezing in mid-October the dry fly action starts to slow down and the streamer action is hot. Once the streamer action gets good it is best to focus on working woolly buggers and leech patterns along the edges of rock banks and weed beds. Tailing a red blood midge or red wire worm about 24 inches behind the woolly bugger is an effective way to catch more trout in the late fall. The fall fishing at Falcon’s Ledge is just getting good. We hope to see you soon for some fall fishing!
