The Uinta Mountains are commonly referred to as the “roof of Utah.” With many of the highest peaks in the range exceeding 13,000 feet, it may come as a surprise that the Uintas are also home to some incredible high country fly fishing as well. With thousands of lakes and many small streams in the area, an angler could spend a lifetime fishing this area and not run out of areas to explore. Our experienced guides will lead you to some of the best fly fishing in this vast wilderness area, where you’ll have the opportunity to catch everything from native cutthroat trout, arctic grayling, eastern brook trout, and even tiger trout. For adventurous anglers looking to get off the beaten path, this trip is a must!

This gives us the opportunity to take you to the best fishery, given the time of year and current weather and fishing conditions. Regardless of where you end up fishing, striking views of the Wasatch or Uinta Mountains are a given—along with the opportunity to catch wild rainbow, brown, or cutthroat trout in their natural habitat.
