I picked up Trent yesterday at 7am. Met Stu in Rawlins at 8:30 and breezed into Park City, UT by early afternoon. The High Country Fly Fishers (Park City TU Chapter)welcomed us for dinner and we presented a Grey Reef/Miracle Mile Program after that. Great turnout! And a dedicated group of anglers. Their commitment was infectious. Due to commitments and an approaching storm we hit the road a bit after 9pm. Snow and ice were the surface conditions for the first hour and a half but dropped Stu back in Rawlins at 1:30 Am, Trent to the lodge at 3am and I hit the pillow about 4am.
Lots of early interest this year and folks are booking very early as well. If you are considering a lodge trip this year I would urge you to call soon. While there are still some excellent spots available they are limited. One room spots are easier to come by but multiple room reservations are becoming a little more tricky.
Very nice conditions today. Calm and expecting snow by late afternoon…could be as much a 4-5″ by tomorrow. Early season day trips are a great way to save a little money and have amazing fishing. Do not expect fewer fish or slower activity due to the time of year. This is a very active fishery and you can experience the best fishing of your life even in our “off season”. Most experienced guides and most private access make it a great value. But, don’t expect us to make you commit to a less than optimal day just because you made the reservation.
