Fishwest Guided Trips: Fly Fishing Utah

Are you looking for something new to try this summer while in Utah? Whether you are a local or just visiting, Fishwest has something for you! Fly fishing is a rapidly growing hobby and we at Fishwest want to arm you with all the knowledge possible for success in this hobby. Allow us to introduce a fun summer adventure, Fishwest Guided Trips: Fly Fishing Utah!

The Fishwest Fly Shop in Kamas, UT is located between some of Utah’s most productive blue ribbon fisheries. With the Uinta Mountains in our backyard and the Provo and Weber Rivers just a short drive away, our guests have the opportunity to catch world-class brown and rainbow trout on the Provo River, aggressive brown trout on the Weber, or resplendent brook trout in the Uinta Mountains.

Our guides operate on the Provo and Weber Rivers, along with countless stillwater fisheries in the Uinta Mountains. This gives us the opportunity to take you to the best fishery, given the time of year and current weather and fishing conditions. Regardless of where you end up fishing, striking views of the Wasatch or Uinta Mountains are a given—along with the opportunity to catch wild rainbow, brown, or cutthroat trout in their natural habitat.
