Half-Day Provo Float Trips
Explore The Provo River in a Hole New Way !!
- Boat For 1-2 Anglers
Join our professional Utah fishing guides for a fantastic day of float fishing!
Our Lower Provo River float trips give anglers the option of exploring Provo in a whole new way. Many people wade the Lower Provo without realizing the great potential the river offers to those that float. Floating offers several distinct advantages for anglers. Floating fishermen get to see miles of water instead of one walk-in area of the river. Fishing from the boats also gives anglers with impaired mobility a chance to explore Utah’s fantastic fly fishing from the comfort of a seat. In the summer, anglers have the opportunity to fish large hoppers tight to the bank with aggressive eats from the river and numerous trout. Nymph fishing produces fish out of the boat every day of the year and is great for anglers just beginning to fly fish. Provo River float trips typically run around six hours and include lunch. We put in right beneath the dam and float down the scenic Provo Canyon to the takeout just upstream of Vivian Park. Plan on fishing out of the boat with occasional stops to wade fish.
What to Expect
Due to the river’s small size, we float the Provo in three-man Flycrafts, boats specifically designed to navigate smaller waters such as the Lower Provo. These boats are large enough to comfortably seat two anglers along with a guide, without being too much boat for the narrow river.
We run float trips anytime the flows allow. Flows must be a minimum of 350 cfs to go out on a float trip. This usually occurs at some point in mid to late spring and runs until the end of September. Extreme high water flows are prime time to go on float trips on the Provo. During high water, much of the entire left river bank becomes inaccessible to wade fishermen. In fact, most wade fishermen stop fishing the river entirely. However, the fishing remains great, with the fish stacking up in any small current break they can find. Floating allows us to access all of these areas, despite high flows.
