Spring on the Upper Sacramento river is a great experience, and Jack Trout delivers on that experience. I've fly fished a lot of places and if your interested in catching wild rainbows and experiencing the thrill of whitewater rafting then there is no better river than the Upper Sacramento. I highly recommend an all day trip with Jack on this... More

It was our first visit to the Mt. Shasta area. And I wanted to treat my husband to a fly fishing trip for his birthday. Our hotel, the Mt. Shasta Resort, recommended Jack Trout Fly Fishing and my husband had the best experience he ever had fishing! They had an unbelievable day - warm for April, sunny and clear. The... More

My daughter and I just returned from Cuba where Jack Trout helped organize a fantastic adventure for us. We only had two days to fish and most of the outfitters are focused on 4-6 day trips. Jack found a place about two hours south of Havana where we could do one day of bone fishing in the salt water flats... More

I'm writing this review after I've returned home and have had time to settle; to reflect; and to consider my trip to South America as a whole. I've asked myself "what makes a good guide service?" What was it about Jack and Carola Trout that made their "service" much more than I dare to describe? The difference with them is... More

We had a wonderful day floating down the Lower Sac with Jack Trout. We hooked into 6 or 7 nice sized rainbow, including the attached pic. Jack is an excellent fly fishing guide--he puts you into fish, helps you with technique, has a wealth of knowledge on the local history (and fish too), and is just plain fun to be... More

The services were not as good as promised in their marketing hype. The guide has failing human relation skills (speaking diplomatically..). Don't waste your money!

JackTrout, Owner at Jack Trout Fly Fishing, responded to this review

Hi Berkeley J, Myself and my guides are wondering who are you? No one remembers guiding you? Could you please shed some light with whom you are talking about, the date that we guided you at and the location or river? We don't want anyone to have a trip that doesn't meet their expectations, so let us know what we... More

Hi Thorgils, so happy I could set this fly fishing trip up for you last minute and you had such a successful trip! This is what I envisioned when I pioneered these day trips for fly fishing & tours out of Havana Cuba for Americans and people like you from Iceland. Thank you for calling on my guide service, it...

I booked a trip through Jack Trout to fish as much of Chilean Patagonia as I could for March 2017. As a young solo traveler, I wasn't looking for a two week tourist experience at a lodge with mints on the pillows. I wanted to get the real Patagonia experience with as much time on the rivers as possible. They... More

We had an amazing day fly fishing on Lake Oroville with our incredible guide, Ryan! We are new to fly fishing and Ryan was patient, very knowledgeable, and a great teacher. Within 30-40 minutes he had us both not only fly fishing but catching ah-mazing fish (a 4 1/2 lb. bass...wahoo!) and lots of them! Ryan's knowledge and experience of... More
