Trip Prices and Options
Most of the areas we fish will be anywhere from 30 minutes to 1.5hrs away from Jackson. The river we choose to fish can be catered to both the experience level and fishing expectations of every fisherman. We offer both short days and full day of fishing. The short days are 6 hrs (leaving Jackson around 8am, or later if that fits your schedule best, and returning around 2pm) and cost $500, the full days are 8+hrs and in the price range of $575-$600, depending on where we go. We can also, at times, do 4-hour walk in trips here in the valley for a lower price ($325 for two people, plus $75 for an extra person). The price will vary according to the fee that is charged by either the forest service or park service. A deposit is required to confirm a trip, the deposit is half of the trip cost and is refundable until 7 days before the trip date. All days include: fishing gear, drinks, and snacks; the full days also include a full lunch which usually consists of sandwiches, chips, and fruit or salad. If you are using my rods and break a rod, there is an additional $50 fee to help repair the rod. This is half of the cost to repair the rod and I will cover the other half of the repair myself. This is very rare but does occasionally happen, the $50 charge simply helps to mitigate what would be a rather large expense for me. Costs not included in the trip price are: a one day fishing license ($14, most locations are cash only, it is recommended that you attempt to purchase a license online before the day of the trip), some flies that we'll pick-up the morning of the trip (approx. $25-$35 per boat), and gratuities at the end of the trip (average gratuity is 15-20%). Gratuities are a large portion of the guides take home pay after all fees and expenses.
The trip prices are all for 2 people, but we can accommodate a third person for an additional fee of $100 (short day) or $125 (full day). I would recommend bringing sunglasses, a warm jacket, sunscreen, bug spray, beer/wine if you would like to have it on the river, and some type of shoe, or strap-on sandal, that you can get wet while on the trip. When booking a trip, please do specify if you have a specific stretch or area of the river that you would like to fish as I need to obtain the appropriate permits through permit holders such as Grand Teton Fly Fishing. If no stretch is specified, I will try to go where I think the fishing conditions will be the best at that time of year. Please let me know if you need any additional information and if you would like to talk in person feel free to call me at 419-349-1049 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you want to keep up on the current fishing conditions, please check out my website at www.jhtrout.com or follow me on Instagram @neil.chamberlin, #jhtrout. I do my best to keep these updated with news and fishing conditions throughout the year.
If you do end up booking a trip, I would HIGHLY recommend watching these videos if you’re new to the sport: The Basic Cast, Fly Casting Essentials, and/or Orvis Fly Fishing if you want even more detailed information. These will help to prepare you with some casting basics for your trip.
