guided fishing trips

Guides

Our guide staff is structured so each guide is working on a regular basis to ensure a high level of fishing prowess. All of our guides are very accomplished anglers and oarsmen with our top guides exceeding 20+ years of experience on the rivers of the west.

We use only top of the line gear and hard sided dories and skiffs. Our guides are focused on making your Jackson Hole fishing experience the very best.
