Wy Reel Action Fishing, LLC

There’s a fish with your name on it in Cody and Wy Reel Action Fishing will help you catch it! With Captain Eric at the helm, you’re in knowledgeable and experienced hands.

Around here the fishing is popular for Brown Trout, Cutthroat Trout, Lake Trout, Rainbow Trout, Walleye, and more if conditions allow.

During the trip, you might be light tackle fishing, trolling, jigging, or maybe something more specialized in this area.

You’re welcome to keep some of the fish you catch, so long as it’s legal. Capt. Eric can even clean your catch for you. Your next meal doesn’t get any fresher than that!

Capt. Eric welcomes children aboard, so feel free to make a family day out of it! If you don’t have a child-sized life vest of your own, be sure to ask if there’s one on board.

Your boat for the day is a 21’ Hewes aluminum fishing craft with room for 4 passengers. It comes with downriggers and everything else you need for a productive day on the water. Rods, reels, and tackle are provided, as well as lures. Live bait is available, but it’s good to ask about this so you know if you’ll be catching it yourself.

Before coming aboard, you will need to buy a local fishing license for everyone in your group. This information is usually available online, or you can ask the captain. Some species may be off-limits or require a special tag, so make sure you know what to expect.

Some essentials you’ll want to bring are sunglasses, rain gear, and sunblock (non-spray). Drinks are included, free of charge.  There will be some light snacks for you on board.

Now’s the time to experience fishing in the Cody area for yourself, with WY Reel Action Fishing, LLC!

Captain Eric Tilman started his guiding career in 1987, while guiding for various outfitters in Montana and Idaho. We were lucky enough to start our own charter business here in Wyoming in 2021. We can't wait to help you build a lifelong memory. Eric is a certified USCG Merchant Mariner credentialed captain. He is also current in First Aid and CPR. Eric's knowledge of fish behavior and habitat makes a day on the water an enjoyable experience. Of course, there are always many fish tales to share as well. ​
