Jennifer and Rick along with Jennifer’s parents came out in July to Falcon’s Ledge Lodge on their first western United States fly fishing trip. They wanted to enjoy the spectacular scenery of the Uinta Mountains, and catch a native cutthroat and native whitefish. They also wanted to catch tiger trout and a big brown trout. They had a great attitude, fished hard, and we loved having them at the lodge and fishing with them.
They fished with two great guides at Falcon’s Ledge. John Rock and Bryson Foy are both long time guides at Falcon’s Ledge Lodge and love to help people catch fish and learn more about fly fishing. The first day Bryson helped them catch some native cutthroat trout and whitefish in the Uinta Mountains above Falcon’s Ledge. They enjoyed the scenery of the spectacular Ashley National Forest and caught cutthroat, brook trout, and rainbow trout on dry flies and nymphs. They even caught a few tiger trout and had accomplished three of their four goals with another day to fish.
Their final day of fishing John Rock took them to a brown trout fishery just south of Falcon’s Ledge Lodge. This beautiful fishery is a crystal clear tailwater that winds through meadows. It is a highly productive river with some large brown trout and clear water. It is one of our favorite places to sight cast to big brown trout. It can be challenging, but the reward can be a personal best brown trout. Jennifer and Rick were up for the challenge, and they fished hard all day long and caught several gorgeous brown trout.
We loved fishing with Jennifer and Rick and Jennifer’s parents. It was great to enjoy their fun attitude and see them fish hard, accomplish all their goals, and learn more about fly fishing. We hope to see them back soon at Falcon’s Ledge Lodge on another western United States fly fishing trip!
