The Local Rivers Half-Day Guided Fly Fishing Trip is a great way to sample some of Utah’s most iconic and productive trout fisheries, without committing to a full day. Our local guides have the benefit of being on the river day-in and day-out, and they are happy to share their knowledge with you during a morning or afternoon on the river. Whether you’re a complete beginner or seasoned angler looking to try out some of Utah’s best trout fishing opportunities with a guide, the half-day guided trip is the ideal choice when you only have a few hours to spare.
Here’s What You’ll Need to Bring
Our guides provide all the fly fishing gear you need to have a successful day on the water. In addition to those essentials, we ask our clients to bring the following:
- Utah State Fishing License (may be purchased online)
- Polarized sunglasses (retainers recommended)
- Hat (baseball hat or wide-brim sun hat)
- Socks (to wear under waders)
- Rain jacket & pants (weather dependent)
- Comfortable clothing & warm layers
Our guides operate on the Provo and Weber Rivers, along with countless stillwater fisheries in the Uinta Mountains. 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.
The Fishwest Fly Shop in Kamas, UT is located between some of Utah’s most productive blue ribbon fisheries. With the Uinta Mountains in our backyard and the Provo and Weber Rivers just a short drive away, our guests have the opportunity to catch world-class brown and rainbow trout on the Provo River, aggressive browns and native cutthroats on the Weber, or resplendent brook trout, tiger trout, and cutthroat in the Uinta Mountains.
