Wanted to give 10 stars but couldn't. My son and I went for a full day on the Truckee with Matt and had a fantastic day. While we did not catch a lot of fish (5), what we learned from Matt was incredibly valuable. We came in wanting to learn the Truckee, fishing techniques, and strategies. He over delivered on all. Matt was extremely personable, approachable and developed a great report with us immediately. We spent the first 45 minutes on techniques and he continued to coach us all day long in an extremely positive manner. We have experiences with guides in other parts of the country who just tell you where to cast your fly, don't tell you why, and wait for you to hook up. Matt was constantly educating us on where the fish should be, river structure, how to deliver the fly and let it drift for best results, areas to fish on the river, access locations, and how the seasons impact the river. By the end of the day, our technique had improved dramatically, especially my son's dry fly technique. Whether you are a novice or accomplished, Matt is going to deliver a great experience on a very challenging river. This was the most fun 5 fish we have ever caught, and we look forward to "hooking up" with him again next year!

Matt and Lulana make the whole experience easy and fun! From booking to catching the fish. My son and friend had an outstanding day and caught more fish than I had expected! Thanks again, Matt! Not only for the fishing experience on the beautiful Truckee, but improving all of our abilities as fisherman!

We did two days of private instruction with Dan and had a wonderful experience. He explained everything so clearly and helped us feel confident to go out on our own. I would highly recommend him to anyone learning to fly fish.

Great day on the Truckee River. Matt Heron is in exceptional fly fishing guide. He clearly knows the river and provided a great fishing experience. Very attentive. Socially gifted. Highly professional. I would recommend fishing with him anytime anywhere. I know he does overseas trips as well.
