About Freyvogel Fly Fishing

Michael and sister Erin camping

Owner/Guide

Since 1981 Mike Freyvogel has had a reel problem.  At the young age of just 20 months Michael caught the bug and has never looked back.

"Fly Fishing with my friends and family has always been what has makes me happy.  I am so blessed to be able to do this so often now!  Guided fly fishing trips are a great way to relax and let go."

Michael grew up in southwestern Pennsylvania fishing all over, from the small Appalachian mountain streams to the mighty 3 rivers in Pittsburgh (The Allegheny River, The Monongahela River, & The Ohio River).  Fishing has always been a large part of Michaels life.   A true gift that Michael has continued to love & share.

The Provo River

The Provo River is known for its epic mayfly hatches and for its very healthy group of wild brown and wild rainbow trout.  Anglers can easily find themselves at one of hundreds of bends alone with rising trout all around.  Nymphing techniques produce daily and streamers can also be productive.  It is not unheard of to see 20 inch lunkers sipping small midges in the mornings on the banks.  The Provo river is very supportive of many other types of wildlife as well.

Elite Guides

Dont spend the day on the river with just any guide.  FFF has a tight knit group of friends that love guiding together as well as fishing together.   Thousands of hours have been spent together netting fish, and snapping photos, rowing boats through the wind, and telling fish stories by the fire.   We work together to make sure that every one has a great day on the water.  Whether you have never been fishing before or you are a life long angler, we look forward to creating memories on the river with you!

UpperΒ Provo River

343 CFS

enjoy It before it gets too hot.  Drakes are about done but stones, and pmds are still good.  Steamer fishing is always a good first light option.  hatches will include midges, caddis, pmds, and small stones.  use a 14/16 parachute Adams with a 18 pheasant tail dropper 28 inches below.  πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸŽ£πŸ‘ŒπŸ’₯πŸ¦…πŸ€˜πŸΎπŸ˜ŽπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ€ 

Middle Provo River

630 CFS

look out for the green drake.  Around legacy bridge we should start seeing a hatch of the famous mayfly.  The rest of the river has a nice pmd hatch and scarce stone fly’s.  Caddis and midges seem to get fish all day.  πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ‘ŒπŸŽ£πŸ€˜πŸΎπŸ˜ŽπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ¦…πŸ’₯πŸ·πŸ„πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

awesome flow.  Look out for the legendary pmd hatch.   midges and caddis in the morning.   Watch out for the midday raft hatch!  Bikini lookout πŸ‘™πŸ‘€ ! 🎣πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ‘ŒπŸ¦…πŸ’₯πŸ˜ŽπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‘πŸ€˜πŸΎπŸ·πŸ„πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

Weber River (between Rockport and Echo reservoir)

183 CFS

This is a great flow and the fish are responding.  Reports of fishing being productive from Wanship down to coalville.  Fish are eating big sows, and stonefly patterns.  Throw anything bushy size 14 or 16 and you have a good chance right now.  pmd patterns are working a little as are caddis but sow and leaches seam to get the biggest fish.  I like prince nymphs, birds nest, and flashback hares ear patterns, classics and effective! πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸŽ£πŸ‘πŸ’ͺπŸΏπŸ¦…πŸ€˜πŸΎπŸ€ 



Clarity is great below echo and caddis and small stones have been good 

Strawberry River

596 CFS

The days of solitude here are over.  pack your bag with some lunch and use sow bugs all day.  This river is going to have a  productive Baetis hatch and its time for the stoneflys and the caddis to start moving.  You will need to really be on your game with this flow being notorious for creating very spooky fish that like to eat in crazy tough spots.  If you need help with fly selection at this river, you should probably go with a guide like me. πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ¦…πŸŽ£πŸ€«πŸ

If you prefer to not have our company on the river and you just need some bugs and tippet make sure to check out 

Trout Bum 2 in Park City, UT

They carry everything you need and some extra stuff too.  The Trout Bums rent gear and give some great fishing advice if you need directions to and around the river.

For the best grab and go food, make sure to eat at 

Park City Bread and Bagel

they open super early, and Locally owned!

What do i really need to pack for fishing?

image250

We recommend thick comfy socks, warm thermal liners and warm variable layers.  Plan for it to be colder than you think in the morning and sunny and too warm for all your layers in the afternoon.  On a typical Utah day on the river you will feel both within 3 hours.  Always check your favorite app for weather in Heber City, UT and Wanship, UT
