Our exposure was limited as we only booked a 2 hour intro for our family, but the guides were friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. They gave special attention to the kids and made sure they caught a fish. Highly recommend these folks.

Highly recommend! Our guide, Rick, offered great advise. Was my 12 y/o son's first time fly fishing and Rick had him hooking and catching trout! An experience we will never forget. Definitely going back to them on our next trip.
