"I can't wait to return. What an incredible experience. The lodge was comfortable, the service and food " over the top"..
Jeff, my guide took me to beautiful spots, with great fishing. We did all the stuff I love. Hiking in to rivers, wading, and catching lots of fish, like a trophy sized brown trout.
Sincerely, I can't wait to come back !

"This year was my 8th year at Falcon's Ledge which says a lot. I wouldn't come back if I didn't have a great time. The lodge is comfortable and clean, the food is fabulous (Scott gets better every year!), the variety of water to fish is amazing and the guides are the best! I'm already looking forward to year 9."

"Well how do I start? First when you arrive at this exquisite resort you become aware that you are in for a very special experience. The staff, from the office personnel to the guides, the chefs and housekeeping gals are all extremely friendly and want to make your trip a wonderful experience. The food is gourmet quality and the portions are gigantic. The fishing experience has been fabulous as well. Nothing better than getting my grand slam award for landing four species in one day. I really want to come back again to Falcons Ledge."

Additional Thoughts:Meals should have 6 stars.
"I had never heard of Falcon's Ledge until it was recommended by Rich at my local Orvis I was convinced after talking to Darlene to make the trip. The total staff was great and very anxious to please. They took care of every question and had a lot of local information. Spencer was a great host and the kitchen crew of Cody and Scott were great. The food was of five star quality with generous portions, Rosa did a great job of keeping our room neat and clean. She even provided extra lotion when our skin dried out from the altitude. Best of all was my fishing guide Jeff Lindstrom. He was knowledgeable of the rivers and where to fish. He was patient and gave great tips on technique. He was great with getting my flies out of trees and bushes. He was complementary when things went well and used praise when warranted. We caught great fish and had a great time. I really appreciated the fact that a non-fishing partner was allowed to come at no additional cost."

"WE had a wonderful experience at Falcon's Ledge Lodge in Utah. Our family came down for a couple of days and had Darren and John as our guides. They taught our girls to fly fish for about an hour in the morning and then took us all out on the lakes until lunch and out on the river in the afternoon. Everyone one caught fish and had a lot of fun. You know it was a success when your teenagers tell you that it was "way more fun than they thought it would be" and where are you taking us next time. Thanks for a wonderful family adventure."
