Went out with Jack and his dog, Beef, on the Lower Sacramento to do some fly fishing for rainbow trout. I had called around to various guide shops asking about going fishing for steelhead, and everyone I talked to essentially listened to what I had to say and then was ready to take my credit card info. to book a trip. When I called Jack, he told me that the steelhead fishing hadn't been good this year and thought that fishing for rainbow trout on the lower Sacramento would be more successful, and we might even catch a steelhead or two as well.
Jack continued to provide helpful info. about the river, our gear, and my fishing technique throughout the whole float trip down the river. He also patiently re-tied my terminal tackle every time my casting caused a bird's nest; much faster than my own skills would have allowed, and getting me back to fishing quickly. I would highly recommend Jack as a fishing guide, especially for those who are looking for a relaxed guide who is more than happy to share his knowledge.
I should also mention, we had a great day out on the river; I hooked over a dozen massive rainbow trout and even got to hook and land a steelhead as well!

Jack understood that we wanted 4-5 hours of fly fishing for bonefish and was happy to accommodate us. He set us up with Sidney who took us ~10 miles outside Nassau in his boat and had us wade and spot cast toward big schools of bones. Sidney is a pleasure to be around and a great angler. We were on fish the whole time and very successful.

Spent 5 days in the beautiful Lake Region at the Hotel Cumbres in Puerto Varas. The region is lovely with the lakes, rivers, mountains, and volcano’s. The town is charming with many good restaurant choices. Jack and Carola Trout arranged a private driver to transfer us to and from the airport (Sebastian was wonderful). Then booked us with another private driver to tour the Chiloé area and view the Penguins. Very nice day.
The last 3 days they scheduled guides for us to fly fish with.
Matthias Bayer had us float a private access stretch of the Maullin River. Caught many nice fish on streamers. Very good day. Then we had 2 more fun days with Gustavo Arenas on another stretch of the Maullin River and a day on the beautiful Lago Todos Los Santos.
Thanks for Jack and Carola for helping us have a fun week!

My husband and I used Jack Trout to arrange a day fishing for bonefish while we were in Nassau. Jack arranged for a local fisherman to pick us up and take us out on his boat for the day. Our guide name was Sydney - he was friendly, polite, and very skilled. The weather delayed our original day scheduled, but we rescheduled and it ended up being a very nice day. We saw many bonefish, caught a couple, and caught several jacks.
We had a great day and would recommend Jack Trout for future fishing expeditions!

I bought an Oregon Fly Fishing Gift Certificate for my son's 25th Birthday - I don't know anything about fly fishing but my son does. After I gave him the Jack Trout Fly Fishing Gift Certificate, he was pretty excited to plan his trip. They were extremely flexible, discussing with my son on where and when he want to go. The guide was a "great guy and really knowledgeable". He learned a lot about spey casting on the Sandy River outside of Portland Oregon! Thank you so much!
