Listen to the sound of the river, and you will get a trout.

Utah’s incredible Uinta Mountain Range gives rise to some of the most diverse and prolific trout streams in the west. Surrounded by such renowned waters as the Provo, Weber, Strawberry and Green Rivers, plus the treasured Strawberry Reservoir, we think this is the perfect place to come wet a line and test your skills, no matter what they are. Whether it’s throwing dry flies to rising natives in a pristine mountain stream, Jedi-nymphing for ultra-selective rainbows, or sight-casting to wild, trophy brown trout in a technical tailwater, the Uinta region of northern Utah and southwestern Wyoming offers the widest range of cold-water fly fishing opportunities imaginable.
One of the best fly fishing destinations we know of and its right in our own back yard! With year-round hatches and stretches hosting more than 3,000 wild trout per mile, the Provo River is one of those great streams where every place a trout ought to be there are at least one and often more. This versatile and lively trout stream has everything from headwater cutthroats to fat, tailwater rainbows and trophy browns. Because of its diverse features, Utah’s Provo River is the perfect place for inducting beginners or challenging experts and everyone else in-between. The region’s best choice for parties with mixed levels of ability.
The south slope of the Uinta Mountain Range is drained by a number of beautiful, small to medium sized rivers and creeks. Some of our favorites include Currant Creek, The Strawberry River and Duchesne River to name a few. These abundant but uncrowded trout streams are all eventually gathered up by the Green River in the Uintah Basin. The incredible variety of terrain here is reflected in the equally amazing variety of water types, hatches and trouts. From alpine babbles full of colorful natives, to meadow streams and steep canyon pocket-water, to high desert tail-waters with giant browns, Utah’s scenic Uinta Basin has it all just a short drive from the Heber Valley. For experienced anglers and dry fly addicts only.
North of the Uinta Mountain Range, in southwest Wyoming’s Upper Green River Basin, swim some of the hardest fighting trout in the country. These are real, wild trophies in moving water that will test your mettle every time. Whether they’re slamming big terrestrials off the bank, sipping tiny dries out of the film, or just simply eating swinging meat, we always know where to go and what to throw on these sometimes intimidating and often fickle rivers and streams. A two and a half hour drive from the Heber/Park City area, trips on the Hams Fork or Green Rivers are best done in multiple days. For very experienced anglers only.
