Felix strives to operate a fly fishing lodge among the ranks of the world's finest -- and succeeds in doing so. His careful attention to detail ensures that every aspect of the guest experience exceeds expectation. The guides are excellent, which (for a novice like me) certainly makes the difference between getting skunked and landing a 7#, 30" brown. ORL is set in an idyllic valley. When combined with the superb, 3-course dinners prepared by Ryan nightly, it is a perfect respite after a rewarding day on the region's beautiful rivers.
Owen River Lodge deserves the unanimous 5-star ratings given by tripadvisor reviewers. I recommend it highly!
