I have fished all over the U.S. and have had multiple guides. I can tell you first hand that Matt is an amazing guide. His tireless work ethic, sound advice, and incredible knowledge of the river was amazing. I cannot wait to book Matt again.

Matt and the entire crew were first class! Caught some nice fish after the first few cast. Most importantly we enjoyed time with each other outside of the office. Matt put us on fish and a good time!

We had a great day with our guide Dan. He was a great teacher, patient with the kids and knew all the good fishing spots! This was such a fun day and the 4 hour block was perfect for the kids keeping them engaged.
