Welcome to High Country Fly Fishers. We are a conservation-oriented Trout Unlimited chapter located in beautiful Park City, Utah and covering all of Summit and Wasatch counties. Our activities include teaching fly fishing and fly tying, conservation projects in support of the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources, the Trout-in-the-Classroom program at local schools and lots of great fishing trips.  We meet once a month and feature fishing guides, fly tyers and fisheries biologists from all over the Western states as speakers.  Check the Calendar page for the exact dates. Old friends and new members are always welcome, so drop by for good conversation, interesting programs and fish tales.

KevinHappy New Year!

I hope 2023 will be a prosperous year for all of us.

We have the schedule set for this year and if there is anything you would like to comment on, please feel free to contact me at any time. We have added a couple of new fish outs I am excited about that will interest stream fishermen.

  • Silver Creek, Idaho in June
  • Alpine, Wyoming in August

Check your Calendars and join us.

As you all know, this is a volunteer club and we are always looking for help to organize our trips and complete our conservation efforts. Help make 2023 a successful year and donate a little time. We are looking for Safari Leaders for two of our trips; Kemmerer in July and Alpine in August. Use the Contact Us form to let us know if you can help with these events or with anything else. It would be greatly appreciated.

We are putting together a mentoring program, Beginner Fly Fishing Clinic and Beginner Fly Tying Class for all those new to the sport — we are here to help. If you are experienced and would like to help us, please contact me with the Contact Us form and we will put you on the volunteer list.

We are currently working on a veteran’s outing similar to what we did with project healing waters. Details will become available soon.

We will also have multiple conservation projects throughout the year so make sure you read the emails. You might be missing out on something fun.

And be sure to join us at our monthly meetings. We will be offering some different things this year.

But most of all, I appreciate your support in making HCFF the best fishing club in the West.

Fish on!
