  • Where will we be fishing?

    Where you will be fishing will depend on a few factors including any preference you may have regarding float versus walk/wade fishing; weather; water flows; ability level; and the size, number, and type of fish you wish you catch. Your guide will discuss these factors with you prior to deciding where to take you.

  • What type of clothing should I pack for my day of fishing?

    We recommend clothing that is comfortable to layer and shed as the day’s temperatures change. Mornings are often cool, while the afternoons warm up considerably, so being able to add/shed layers makes for a more comfortable trip. Lightweight, breathable, packable items are ideal.
