Every spring and summer, clients and friends, catch trout in the 3 to 5 pound range. But to catch fish like that, you really need to fish longer than one or two days. Fishing is fishing, some days you never get a single tug, then the next, they are hitting like crazy. Many of the remote ponds are fly fishing only but not all of them. We can arrange for you to fly-in by float plane. We offer Guided Trips for Trout, Salmon, and some warm water species.
Please feel free to call for more information and pricing.
