Join your expert guide, Mark Lamberth, for a full-day fly fishing trip, walking and wading for up to 2 guests, where you’ll experience the beauty and excitement of this world-class fishery. He’s taken Rainbow and Brown Trout at Hatchery Creek, which are only rivaled by streams out west. He’s taken more 20+ inch trophy fish on this creek than he has out west and seen much larger. He set a personal best in late February by catching 89 fish in one day!

As your guide, he has an impressive 5 decades of fly fishing, having been fishing in 42 states, Canada, and Puerto Rico. He’s been guiding for almost 3 decades and teaching for 2 plus decades. He has fished for Trout all over the western states, chased Tarpon in the Keys, and caught salmon in Michigan, and Redfish in Louisiana, to name a few. Fun fact, Capt. Mark has caught Catfish and Carp on a fly rod!

I've been fly fishing for almost 50 years. I've fished all over the USA for almost all species. I was employed by Orvis for five years in the fly shop in Sevierville, TN. I currently teach fly fishing classes for the US Fish and Wildlife Services. I started fly fishing at 16 and have not fished with anything else the entire time. I only use Orvis gear with a few Hardy fly reels. I've been a guide for almost three decades and I am a fully licensed guide.
