The canyon is set between Pathfinder and Alcova dams.
We offer lessons and guiding in Fremont Canyon, located in Wyoming.
Q: I hear the hike in/out of Fremont Canyon is tough?
A: Yes - see above photo. There are a few access points, including from the meadows and mid-canyon downhill goat trails.
Q: Is the hike down worth it?
A: Less anglers equals less pressure. The canyon is legendary for holding big, healthy, strong trout.
Q: I have bad ankles, knees, etc - do you recommend it?
A: No! This is advanced hiking, walk-wade, and technical fishing. There are plenty of other safe locations to fish in Wyoming.
Q: About how many fish can I expect to catch, and what is the size range?
A: Depending on skill level, and length of time fishing, we've had clients catch up to 20 fish, and the average size range is 14" - 20", with a few up to 30". Add in rocky boulders, strong currents - you will be challenged to land trophy trout!
Q: What techniques will we use?
A: Nearly all techniques work. Using fly rods 4wt-6wt, we regularly use tight-line and drop-shot nymphing, dry flies, dry-dropper, and downstream wet-fly swings.
Q: We might stay in the Alcova or Casper area - can we do a fly casting lesson one day, and then hire you to guide us the next day?
A: Yes. We highly recommend the combination of fly casting lessons and guiding. In fact, we can customize a fly fishing program for you, e.g. 1-2 hours casting instruction, followed by 2-6 hours of guiding (catching fish), on the same day or multiple days.
Q: How long is a day of guiding and what are your prices?
A: We offer four, six, and eight hours per day. Please see pricing information in the link below.
