Falcon's Ledge, UT

Orvis-Endorsed Fly-Fishing Lodge in Altamont, Utah.

Falcon's Ledge, UT

Overview

At Falcon's Ledge guests will sight-cast to trophy browns and rainbows on clear, trophy tailwaters and fish high-mountain freestone streams for native cutthroats, rainbows, and brookies. Six rivers flow out of the beautiful Uintah Mountains above the lodge, and it is just a short drive to fish one of these world-class rivers in beautiful mountain locales where you are often the only fisherman around. Many guests also enjoy casting to hard-fighting fish on any of the eight stillwaters surrounding the lodge, and floating a day on the world-famous Green River located within driving distance of the lodge. It is not rare to fish five or six different rivers and streams all on the same trip. Our professional, friendly, and award-winning fly-fishing guides are passionate about making sure you have a fly-fishing adventure you will always remember. Many of them have been guiding for over 15 years and are teachers or professors that love to teach. The world-class fishing is only part of your adventure; you will stay in one of eight private guest rooms in the modern lodge and soak in our large outdoor spa in the evening. Share the comfortable elegance of the lodge and our country gourmet dining with a non-fishing spouse at no additional cost.
