Default Falcon’s Ledge - Variety and Excitement

Falcon’s Ledge - Variety and Excitement

Take pleasure in a guided fly-fishing adventure in secluded eastern Utah. Falcon's Ledge is located at the doorstep of the Ashley National Forest, only two hours drive time from Salt Lake City International Airport.

At Falcon’s Ledge, a single fly fishing trip can be filled with many different angling experiences. One day you might sight cast to big wary browns and rainbows on a clear cold tailwater or toss attractors to wild cutthroats and brookies in forested freestone streams above 8,000 feet. The next day you might hit undercut banks with hoppers or cast to huge cruisers in our private stillwaters. With many stream and river fishing options within a short driving distance and eight trophy stillwaters just out the front door, you will never run out of things to try, or you might simply find a favorite spot, like the Strawberry River. The Strawberry River is a technical, but rewarding tailwater fishery. The upper section tumbles down a wild and amazingly scenic canyon with large cliffs and stunning rock formations. Deep pools, beaver ponds, and undercut banks on this section hold many browns from 13 to 18 inches. Amazing stonefly and green drake hatches occur in June and early July.

Farther downstream, the lower stretch of the river fishes much like a large spring creek with long smooth runs interspersed with riffles and deep pools. Large browns and stout rainbows can be unusually wary and spread out here so long casts, long leaders, considerable stealth, and a guide with a good knowledge of water and fish are a necessity. Great PMD and yellow sally hatches begin in July and go through August. Hoppers also produce in the late summer and early autumn afternoons. Browns can reach 27 inches and rainbows get up to four or five pounds with powerful 16- to 18-inchers being normal. These fish provide a challenge to any angler and a test for their equipment when hooked.
