Frequently Asked Questions

What rod weight should I bring?

A 6 or 7 weight will be your best all around rod for all waters and fish species. 5-6 weight rods are commonly used for cutthroat and it is strongly recommended to use 7-9 weights for targeting Bull Trout.

I wish to bring my own flies, what patterns work?

You are more than welcome to bring your own flies. Please note that our rivers require us to fish with single, barbless hooks. If you are alright with pinching the barbs on your personal collection, feel free to bring your own. We recommend to bring these basic patterns: Adams, Royal Wulff, Prince nymphs, Copper Johns, Big foam dries, Streamers .Recommended sizes are 10-18.

What size leaders and tippet should I bring?

If you wish to use your own collection of leaders/tippet we recommend bringing a range from 0x-4x. Newer leaders are recommended as well as UV damages the line and run the risk of losing the “big one”.

What are the walk and wade trips like?

Most of our walk and wade trips are in remote, harder to reach areas that sometimes require the use of steep trails and bushwhacking. A good level of mobility and physical fitness is strongly recommended for these trips. However we do have a selection of easier walk and wade trips and can tailor your trip to meet every age and physical ability of angler.
