Guided Fly Fishing Float Trips
Every day we feel incredibly lucky to share some of the most beautiful free stone, pure, and untouched rivers in the west.
From the St. Joe River to the Grande Ronde, the beauty and quiet provide a unique respite from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
We primarily offer float trips on the rivers we guide. Float trips are ideal for the new angler to avoid vegetation and hangups, are safer for the elderly angler to avoid sporty wading, and are perfect for the experienced angler trying to cover as much water as possible. If there are points that you want to hit a run with your feet in the water, we are happy to stop and accommodate!
Our experienced guides are happy to focus on your trip intention. Whether working on casting skills, catching fish, or catching beautiful views on inland northwest rivers, we want to help in any way we can.
Day Trip Pricing and Details
Trips are booked by the boat (multiple boats can be booked per day) and include transportation, full shore lunch, personal instruction, and fishing gear (rods, leaders, flies, etc.).
One boat, 1 angler: $530
One boat, 2 anglers: $550
One boat, 3 anglers: $700
* These fees do not include a tip for the guide (20% is customary for a trip well done)
A 50% down payment will reserve your date, the remainder of payment is due one week before your trip.
Cancellations within 30 days will forfeit all deposit monies. Deposits for canceled guide trips will be refunded in full with a 30 day or more notice. If we are able to re-book the guide, we will refund the deposit or apply it to a trip at a later date if it is available. If a trip is cancelled with less than 48 hours notice, the full price of the guide trip will be charged.
Our guide trips go out in all safe weather and water conditions, therefore inclement weather, water levels or undesirable fishing conditions are NOT acceptable reasons to cancel or receive a refund. Trips cancelled by the guide or mutual guide/client decision due to unsafe weather or water conditions, state or federal closures, or other uncontrollable circumstances will have the entire deposit refunded. We strongly suggest trip insurance.
Day Trip Preparation
For the trip we recommend that each person bring:
A fishing license for the river you will be fishing, please also review regulations for the river you plan to fish
Clothing for sun protection
A fleece jacket for cool evenings and mornings
A rain jacket
River shoes that can get wet if you would like to wade
Sunglasses with croakies
Any medications you may need on a regular basis or in an emergency (e.g. epipen, inhaler, etc.)
If you have any gear that you like to use, feel free to bring it, otherwise, we will provide all the fly fishing gear. If you would like to wade and don't have waders, please let us know!
