Utah fishing report: despite a snow storm, Park City guide found fish up

After some reservations due to the weather, Dick and Casey went for it!  I took the father daughter duo fly fishing on the middle Provo River where Casey caught her first fish on a fly!  Oh, and did I mention, Casey is four months pregnant!  What a rock star.

I picked them up at 10:30 a.m. in Park City and headed to the middle Provo River.  We set up just below cottonwood bridge where the blizzard like conditions certainly did not affect the fishing.  Initially, I set Casey up with a nymph rig with black thread midge, and in five casts she hooked two fish.  Both got away but she got the hang of it and ultimately brought six fish to the net.  Dick was set up on a double dry midge rig, unfortunately at that hour the fish weren't targeting the dry.  Casey, the first timer, was smoking him.  The nymphing was to good to pass up.  He landed a few, the fish started to rise, he went back to the dry fly, and put a whoop on them!  Needless to say the fishing yesterday was stellar!  This just goes to show.... if you don't go, you won't know!   -Jeremy Rogers
