Welcome

Welcome to the High Country Fly Fishers website. We are a conservation-oriented fly fishing club located in beautiful Park City, Utah and we meet on the first Wednesday of every month at 6 p.m. at Red Rock Brewing in Kimball Junction. Old friends and new members are always welcome, so drop by for good conversation, interesting programs and fish tales.

Hot!   We recently discovered that our website stopped talking to us in late May and therefore any event sign-ups or other forms you may have submitted during the last few weeks disappeared into cyberspace, never to be seen again. Almost. Fortunately, we found the submitted forms in our logs so we can work with them now, but we may have missed responding to you prior to an event. If that happened to you, our sincere apologies. We weren’t ignoring you; we just didn’t know you had contacted us. The good news is the website has been repaired and is working fine now.

Next Meeting
Date: Wednesday, August 7, 2019 at 7:00 p.m.
Fly Tying and Social Hour at 6:00 p.m.
Location: Red Rock Brewing
1640 Redstone Center Drive
Park City, UT 84098

Please note that due to Utah liquor laws, you must be at least 21 years old to enter our meeting room at Red Rock Brewing.

Is summer ever going to get here? Getting the High Country Fly Fishers float together for the 4th of July parade in Park City yesterday and had to stop because it was snowing!

We need the water, and this winter we got it. The reservoirs are full and fishing reports are good! The rivers are running high and fishing is challenging; still good, but you have to adapt.

High Country Fly Fishers kicked off spring with our Men’s Beginner Fly Fishing Clinic followed by the Women’s Clinic. This year both were very successful. Hopefully we will continue to see some of these new faces at our events.

Our Crittenden trip was well attended. Usual winds, but all had fun. Then we had our annual fishout to Starvation Reservoir and winter came roaring back. Panguitch was last week and, outside of dodging the lightning strikes, 22 of us managed to have a great time.

The Project Healing Waters Spring Outing was as good as ever, looking forward to fishing with the vets again in the fall.

The summer (when it gets here) looks to be a busy time for the club. We have upcoming “Clean Ups” at Strawberry Reservoir, the Middle Provo and the Green River; the 4th of July parade; Women’s Fish Days; and, as always, Bill Q. has a great slate of monthly meeting speakers lined up. We are also having a monthly fishing trip, so please check the Calendar page on the website so you don’t miss out.

Tight lines,
Dave Allison
