There’s high-quality fishing equipment on board to help you bring in the best specimens around.

Jason specializes in fly fishing along these calm, quiet rivers for species like Musky, Bass and Rainbow Trout, and Smallmouth Bass, depending on the time of year and what is in season. He is a fly fishing professional who is always happy to show anglers new and old his best tips for bringing in each species.

Your guide is committed to sustainable fishing, and maintains a strict catch-and-release policy for all species in order to protect the local fish numbers. Instead the focus is on providing the perfect platform for some amazing fly fishing fights with fish worth bragging about!
