Fall fly fishing in Utah is an amazing time to be on a trout stream. Cool mornings and warm afternoons make for perfect conditions to cast a fly. Casting to a wild brown trout with golden cottonwoods reflecting off of the river is an almost surreal experience. Being surrounded in the colors of Fall can make it hard to concentrate on fishing but we’ll do our best to keep you focused. With the cooling temperatures and Fall hatches the trout become more active and we have ideal fly fishing conditions. Caddisflies, Blue Winged Olive and PMD mayflies are around through the end of October. So get out and enjoy a beautiful Fall day on the river.
Fall On The River
What a great time to be on our Utah rivers. It’s pretty hard to not have a great day out there. Fishing is excellent pretty much all day long. With midges hatching in the morning, PMD’s and Blue Winged Olives in the afternoon and then Caddisflies in the evening, the trout have snacks all day long.
With our cooler Fall temperatures the bigger brown trout start getting more aggressive and are more likely to be caught. Nymphing, dry flies and streamer fishing are all great techniques this time of year.
All of those hatches can make it a little tricky to figure out what they’re eating at that particular moment. Knowing the life-cycle of all those inescts and what time of day certain bugs are hatching will make or break your trip to the river. What to use and when to use it is everything. Therefore make sure you hire the best in the business for a successful day of fly fishing.
