Great Utah Snowpack Means Epic Fishing

T he snowpack is well over 100% for the most of the state and in the drainage we fish here around Crystal Ranch it is currently at 158%. This is great news!

A good snowpack equates to more water and more food for trout populations in the Spring, Summer, and Fall. We often see better growth, healthier fish, and even better fishing in years with a lot of water.

With this much snow at this point in the year, 2017 is shaping up to be truly epic!

S chedule your trip soon to reserve time during the prime weeks this season. It will probably take until the end of June or into the first couple of weeks of July for the runoff to subside and the fishing to really turn on.

If you were hoping to visit us sooner than that you’re in luck. We now have a new mile-long river called Arrowhead Creek which is regulated by a hydro plant at the top of our property. The dam at the plant ensures the flows on this amazing new private water are stable year-round, so there will be great river fishing conditions starting as early as the end of May.

What People Are Saying

Just wanted to drop you a quick line to thank you for letting me share your wonderful property on my trip to Utah. The land is amazing. The fishing was tremendous, and the staff and guides were world class. I hope to be able to visit the property again soon.

I’ve been to several fishing lodges and nothing compares to the privacy, solitude, and luxury of having an entire Ranch with rivers and lakes all to yourself. The guides were patient and excellent with our young son in helping him learn to cast and everyone in our group caught plenty of fish. Crystal Ranch is our new Utah favorite and we would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a truly incredible fly fishing experience.
