October and November are two of our favorite months of the year, the fishing is amazing and the pheasant hunting opportunities start in mid-September, so groups staying at the lodge have the chance to fish and pheasant hunt all in one trip. The fishing has been awesome in October and many corporate and family groups have been staying at the lodge for a few days and catching lots of fish as well as spending time hunting pheasants at Falcon’s Ledge’s Pleasant Valley Hunting Preserve at this Utah fishing and hunting lodge.
During this special time of year corporate and family groups can enjoy all the outdoor recreation available at Falcon’s Ledge during one trip. Groups that enjoy ATV riding or hiking can ride or hike up in the Uinta Mountains just up the road from the lodge. Those guests that like to spend their time kayaking on the private lakes on the property can enjoy peace and quiet as they paddle on the private lakes right on the property. Fishermen will enjoy some of the best fishing of the year during these months as hungry trout feed heavily to prepare for the winter. Groups that like to hunt will love this time of year at Falcon’s Ledge. The pheasant hunting is phenomenal and the shooting range on the property gives hunters the opportunity to practice their shooting when they are not at Pleasant Valley Hunting Preserve hunting wily pheasants. Guests that simply want a relaxing vacation will enjoy relaxing in the beautiful lodge playing pool, card games, and soaking in the hot tub.
Fishermen have been catching lots of trout with black and brown balanced leeches and chironomids dropped off a strike indicator about 4 to 7 feet. Woolly buggers and leech patterns worked on a sinking line are also effective this time of year. A red copper john, red wire worm, or hot head nymph dropped off the back of the woolly bugger about 20 inches is also very effective this time of year.
Corporate groups and family groups love to spend cool mornings in October and November watching highly trained dogs flush strong flying pheasants into the crisp fall air. After spending an exhilarating morning hunting pheasants under fantastic hunting dogs, they have the time of their life catching large trout all afternoon on the Falcon’s Ledge private trout lakes. After an afternoon of reeling in fish it is time for a delicious dinner and relaxing in the lodge telling stories about an epic day at this Utah fishing and hunting lodge!
