Winter fishing on our local streams is a reality that more and more anglers are beginning to realize, and for good reason. Our state has a large amount of tail-water fisheries (i.e. rivers and streams that flow out of dams.), which means that these streams rarely freeze over. The open water on these waterways is still teeming with aquatic life, and the fish feed on these various food items throughout the winter.
The purpose of this class is to teach and show anyone that wants to learn how to fish during the winter how to do so in a safe, fun, and effective manner. This means discussing what weather you should try to fish in, flies, leaders/tippets, safety concerns, etc. In short, this class should prepare you for your future winter outings on your own, and give you the tools to find success during a time of the year where fishing can be tough compared to the Spring, Summer, and Fall.
This class will consist of an evening session at the shop, and then a half-day trip out to the river for a hands on experience. The weekday class session will run from 6:15 PM-8:45 PM. On Saturday, we will be meeting either on the Middle or Lower Provo River. Class will run from 10:00 AM-1:30 PM. This class has a maximum student capacity of 4 students, and sign-up is based on a first come, first serve basis. All you will need for the first session of class is a pen and pad of paper for notes. For Saturday's on-the-water session, you'll need all the essential fishing gear (waders, boots, rod/reel, flies, etc.) to be able to get the most out of this class. Get rid of the winter blues, and get out with us to experience Utah’s “forgotten” season!!!
