"To get away is always great, but this Lodge is a cut above most I've been to! The staff is most accommodating and kind. The service is consistent and the food is outrageous!
Each guide was focused on the clients catching fish. I learned so much and am sure I will improve my fly fishing skills. I would recommend this lodge to anyone....you will not be disappointed!

"I can't say enough about my Falcon's Ledge experience. The food was delicious and made to perfection. Scott, the Chef, was funny, courteous, and catered to your needs. The staff, Lance, John, Dave were super friendly. The guides were amazing and extremely helpful trying to find me fish to catch. The accommodations were great. The rooms were cozy and beds were comfortable. The scenery is out of this world. A place you MUST experience."

Additional Thoughts:Both were expert fishermen and exceedingly helpful. We learned a lot not only about fishing but also about the history and geology of the area.
"We chose Falcon's Ledge because we love to keep our feet on the ground while we fish. The variety of streams and stillwater fishing is unmatched by anything we have seen. The guides are outstanding! They are experts on all fishing habitats, access points, and safety issues. We caught big and small fish and had a blast. Accommodations are outstanding. Dining is a delight. Special attention is given to dietary and housekeeping requests. We had great rapport with other guests in this gorgeous setting."

Additional Thoughts:Excellent guide and excellent fishing for all levels of competency.
"I came into this fly fishing trip with little to no real experience fly fishing. Our guide John was a very understanding and knowledgeable individual. Over the course of three days, he was able to instill confidence to fish on my own after this trip, as well as coaching me into a competent fly fisherman. I can say with absolute certainty that I would not have been able to catch any of the fish that we saw in the rivers and ponds without his expertise. The lodge itself was very modern in its exterior appearance but very warm and inviting within the interior."

"Lodging, meals, guides, staff--everything about this lodge was first rate. We spent three days fishing and hated to leave. Our guide, John Rock, was one of the best guides I have encountered. He was knowledgeable, patient, and excellent company. The scenery is outstanding. I would definitely recommend Falcon's Ledge."

"Mountain streams, Yellowstone & Strawberry Rivers, beautiful cutbows, tiger trout & "grand slam" on Yellowstone and 24 inch brown on Strawberry. Returned early on 3rd day so Derek gave my wife a fly fishing lesson. She caught her first rainbow on a fly rod at one of the lodge's lakes. (Be sure to fish these lakes when you are staying at Falcon's Ledge!) I couldn't have ask for a better guide. Food and service were outstanding - special thanks to Scott and Nicky for gourmet meals. This is a fine area of Utah for fly fishing."

"This is my second trip to Falcon's Ledge, and it has already become one of my favorite fishing venues.The facilities of the lodge are excellent, and the lodge staff is exceptional. The guides are first-rate not only in their professional work but also in their personal interactions. I've never experienced a more courteous and helpful group of guides.Then there are the opportunities to fish multiple scenic and productive streams within easy reach of the lodge. All told, it would be difficult to find a better lodge to spend a fishing trip. However long you stay will be too short."
