We're back from our 12th Fly Fishing visit to Upper Canyon, and once again have to report that it's simply great. The guides are top-notch and the access to both private and public water is second to none. The fly shop has just what you need, and if your equipment doesn't arrive on your flight, there is good stuff to... More

This was my first time visiting Upper Canyon. It was incredible. The food, lodge and hospitality are second to none. Donna and Jake are great hosts and their staff are excellent. Our one day of guided fishing was incredible with 20+ fish for each of us. Big browns, rainbows and cut bows. Mitch was a phenomenal guide and we learned... More

We have gone to UCO for many years now for the horse riding experience. I am an experienced rider so really appreciate the great quality horses and customized rides. Scenary and plethora of trails can't be beat! Even though my husband is an experienced fly fisherman, he really only rides when he comes to UCO because it is so beautiful... More

Had a ton of fun. Hiking was hard but was worth it to get to see the landscape. Getting the mule deer on the last day was a definite bonus. Justin and Aaron were great and good for a lot of laughs. Hope to be able to come back some day.

Jake and Donna's ranch and the mountain ranges surrounding them are beautiful . Our week 3 hunt exceeded all my expectations. The whole staff was friendly and attentive. The room we had in the lodge was very comfortable and provided plenty of space for clothes and gear. All the food was fantastic! Our guide worked hard and was a big... More

There can be no greater compliment of service, than sharing stories with my friends and planning for a return trip to Upper Canyon Outfitters. Choosing between fishing, back country horse trips, and / or fall hunting are all options. The grandeur of the country, the sincerity and generosity of the people, and the resulting experiences make this a special place.... More

Good but could have been much better. The kitchen appliances need to be updated. We thought we would be hunting private land and not public. It would have been better if we could have killed at least one whitetail on the private land.

We had a great Elk & Mule Deer hunt!!! Good food and excellent hospitality. Would highly recommend UCO to any sportsman. Guides were very accommodating and worked very hard to achieve success. Rooms were very very nice! No complaints what so ever!! We love the UCO family. Thanks for providing us with a great memory. Sincerely The Shinsky Group
