Jack too my son and I drift fishing down the Klammath river and you want to talk about fun?! Wow! Our trip was great and 8 hours fly by. I wish we had two days for fishing! Lots of fun and Jack was hospital, knowledgeable, and patient (I think I lost 7 of his cherished steelhead rigs from snags, but... More

We spent three days fishing on the Lower Sacramento with Jack Trout and several of his guides. The guides were very knowledgable and helpful and I would highly recommend Jack Trout's service for anyone visiting the area. You don't have to be an experienced angler- They'll teach You!

Before writing this review, I carefully read the reviews of each ranking category so that my review wouldn't seem one sided, so here it goes: our one day guided fishing trip floating down the Rio Maullin out of Puerto Varas was a disappointment. It appears unless Jack Trout is actually there with you, you don't get the care of service... More

I have to drive 4-5 hours to good fishing so needed to combine a day and a half together to make the trip really worthwhile. Jack was very accommodating and we arranged to have the second day the lower sac after a wading trip on the McCloud the first day so my trip home was shorter. Everything was great. McCloud... More

I'd like to start this off by saying this was one of the best trips my girlfriend and I have been on to date. Our guide (the owner) of Jack trout guide service. First off was extremely patient with two beginners who have done little to no fly fishing before hand. He got us lined out on how to cast... More

Jack was fantastic guiding us down the Upper Sac. He was fun flexible, and gave us a real five start experience from the personally tied flies, patience, and cool streamside lunch. I would definitely recommend him if you are looking for a Trout adventure in Norcal.

I was searching for the perfect weekend getaway and reached out to Jack Trout to take me on a fishing tour of the Sacramento River/Shasta area. He immediately suggested I come for opening day below the Sun Dial bridge which had been closed to fishing for 3 months. He made several great suggestions on where to stay and places to... More

I called only a couple days before I arrived and Jack quickly returned my phone call and got me all setup for my fly fishing trip. He even offered a Military Discount, which I was very impressed by. I was the only one in the group, so I had one on one lessons with Jack and he was very patient... More

My family and I rented out a ranch up in Weed, CA. We had booked a fly fishing lesson on property with a guide referred to us by the property owner. We booked a month out and he cancelled the weekend before our trip. Fortunately, Jack saved the day! He ended taking us off property and down the McCloud River.... More

Hi Justin, I had a wonderful time with you and your son, but you two were on the Upper Sacramento River not the McCloud River. All these rivers are so special up here they don't need names, just category by experiences. Look forward to seeing you and your son up here for the steelhead season Oct through March. jt :) More
