This is the time of year when Provo River Guide Service expands our local Utah fly fishing to the sacred Rivers X and small streams. Which we have found the fishing to be incredible! PRGS has had many clients out this past week, all of which have landed a fish in the 20-inch class. As much as I would love to give the details on these streams, what makes them so special is the low amount of traffic that you encounter on your fishing adventure. For us at Provo River Guide Service we value the experience that we share with our clients and our well kept secrets. While we stay rather tight lipped about these spots, we frequently update our Utah fishing report. This will give you all the information you need to have a successful day on our local waters.
As a boutique fly fishing outfitter, our guides strive to give our guests a unique experience by expanding to other Utah Rivers, while reaching as far as Wyoming. We still guide the majority of our trips on our local Provo River and Weber River systems, but by offering these options we diversify our clients repertoire of streams. This is the time of year we tend to encourage full day trips and driving a little bit further to make the most of the best fishing that Utah and Wyoming have to offer.
With a light snow pack and a mild winter, the run-off is almost done for the year. Prime time fishing should be happening in the next couple of weeks, all the way through the end of the month. Like clockwork, once the high water comes down, large bugs such as green drakes and stoneflies start to come off and put the fish in a feeding frenzy. For dry fly fishermen this is what they dream about, throwing a size 6-12 dry fly at large fish that are eager to take any offering that comes in their feeding lane. If you are looking to do a guide trip that is a little different than the average, please call or email us to inquire about one of these unforgettable fly fishing adventures. -Jeff Harwin
