We like to tell people to dress like they are going skiing. Warm jackets, hats, gloves, polarized sunglasses and sunscreen are usually all you need.

Out guides will provide various beverages and lunches are included on full day trips.

We like to wear long sleeve shirts that are lightweight and protect us from the sun. Shorts, light pants, sunscreen, raincoats, baseball hats, socks and polarized sunglasses are really all you need. For fall fishing, bring a light jacket or sweatshirt, the mornings and evenings can get a little chilly.

All of our waters contain Rainbows, Browns, Cutthroats, Brookies and Whitefish. Typically you catch about 4 to 1, Rainbows to Browns, and depending on the property fish average around 17 inches with fish over 20 caught almost daily!

Will the trip be cancelled if the weather is bad?
We fish in all weather. The only reason we will cancel a trip due to weather is if it’s unsafe to be on the water. Sometimes the best fishing is on rainy or snowy days!
How many people per guide?
We limit it to three people per guide, but we highly recommend getting two guides for three people. Three experienced fisherman are often fine with just one guide, but it will be a much better trip for novices if they hire two guides for three fisherman.
