"Could not have been better from the comfortable accommodation to the excellent food.
Great variety of fishing from ponds to rivers. Even the ponds by the lodge are great. A prime example is after I had finished my main course the chef said if I wanted a break before dessert it was ok to go and fish the pond for a bit. I found myself fishing an hour before breakfast and before and after dinner.
I can honestly say that I had my best days trout fishing here - I stopped counting after 30 fish then in the afternoon we went stalking larger fish I had some up to 20 inches but lost a few much bigger.
The scenery, location, service from both the lodge staff and the guide could not be improved upon. This place is a hidden gem and I cant wait to return.

Additional Thoughts:best guide in ten years
"From the minute we drove onto the property, we knew that we were in for a treat. The experience at Falcon's Ledge did nothing but get better every day. The lodge is fantastic. The food is out of this world. All of the staff and guides clearly love what they do. I fished with Derrick for two days, and he would the best guide I have had in ten years of fishing all over the western US. I cannot say enough about his approach to guiding, which really made the trip for me."

Additional Thoughts:Both were great - one off day with both
"You have already about the first day.... I had Jake for one more day and then Jeff Lindstrom for 4 days. Guides were great even though the river flows did not cooperate on two full days. Food was fantastic - dinners were very tasty and filling. My wife enjoyed the lodge, ponds, and hiking. Personally I fished the Ponds every day and they were absolutely fun. Lots of 20+" fish each day. I caught three tiger trout and my wife landed a 21" beast on her last cast with Jeff. I will attest to the great water on the Duchesne, Strawberry, and small creeks. Unfortunately the Yellowstone and Rock Creek were high and dirty. Great people, great service, great guides, and a fulfilling 7 days. I will definitely be back. I will contact the Lodge about a few small issues they can correct in the future."

"My team and I brought a group of clients to the Falcon's Ledge. Both the property and the staff exceeded all of our expectations and best of all we caught lots of fish (rainbows, cut throats, browns and brook trout). We had a wide variety of fishing experience and the guides were able to satisfy everyone's individual needs. The property was beautiful, the food was superb (make sure to have the bacon). all in all everyone had a blast and I would highly recommend Falcon's Ledge!"

"Had an amazing 3 days with the folks at Falcon's Lodge. Guides were top notch, waters were unbelievable, lodge was great and the food was amazing. What else could you ask for? Scenery where we fished was stunning and the waters varied from small high altitude streams to wide fast running rivers. Truly an fantastic location. Guides were really great guys, fun to be around, knowledgeable, helpful and always ready to help. They really made the experience terrific. To top it off I had the best fishing day of my life the last day with 6 fish over 19 inches on dries and nymphs! Amazing place and I'm already planning a return with my kids."

"So I've never fly fished (as an adult) and the time I had hear has "caught me hook line and sinker". I will be looking to bring my family out for a repeat of the this fantastic experience. Guides are great - totally flexible and helped me get my confidence on how to rock it."
