Capt. Dan Flaming Gorge Fishing Guide

Capt. Dan Flaming Gorge Fin Chasers offers exciting trips out on Flaming Gorge Reservoir in search of trophy Lake Trout and more. These waters have produced some real monsters in the past, and Captain Dan Bolton will take you to all his favorite fishing spots on the hunt for record-breakers.

There’s more than just Lake Trout swimming around here, too. Rainbow Trout, Kokanee Salmon, and Smallmouth Bass are all on the menu, depending on when you show up. Because of this, you will be given quality tackle at a variety of test strengths, with the option to jig, troll, and bottom fish, and even fly fish if you let Capt. Dan know in advance.

You will be spending the day aboard a 21’ Thunder Jet aluminum fishing boat. The vessel was built in 2017 and makes for a safe, comfortable place for up to four guests to spend the day. The boat is powered by a 225 HP Mercury engine, so she’s no slow coach. She also has a trolling motor to let you stalk silently through the water once you’re in position.

You have the choice of morning and afternoon fishing trips with Captain Dan. You will be battling huge fish in one of the most stunning settings in the country. All rods, reels, tackle, bait, and lures are included. All you have to do is show up!

So what are you waiting for? Grab your fishing license, food, drinks, and camera, and get ready for a truly unique fishing adventure.
