What amazing service! Called for a friend who needed wading boots. Jack set him up with a new pair of @simmsfishing boots. Fit him like a glove and made his trip enjoyable and memorable. He even came to our hotel to drop them off and set it up so that he could drop them off at the front desk in... More

Great trip with Jack Trout. Had a novice fly fisherman in the boat and he was very patient with my buddy until he learned the tricks of the trade. Put us on the fish early and often with quite a few big bows. Tons of local knowledge and awesome stories made the time between casts and catches blow by. Riverside... More

Having never fly fished before and a bucket list item, I was so thrilled with the experience. Jack is so relaxed, attentive and really show his passion for sharing Fly fishing with beginners. I can't wait to go again when next in California!

We were up in Redding and fished the lower Sacramento with Jack Trout as our guide. Caught several large Rainbows as well as a couple of Steelhead. We are planning on fishing with Jack again the beginning of November. Another nice touch, is that Jack fixes a nice hot lunch. It was so good! Can't wait to get back out... More

I first heard Jack in the late 1990’s on a radio show called Fishing Report. He was always enthusiastic and very informative about the freshwater fishing in the northern waters. Since that time I have enjoyed numerous trips, some included my son, with Jack. He has remained as enthusiastic as ever and I have benefited from his nearly quarter century... More

Jack Trout is a character and well worth signing up with his service. His wife Carola provides an excellent support team and had great follow through with email and phone calls to all my questions. Jack took us to an area along the McCloud accessible only by 4 wheel drive. It was a beautiful spot. He did his best to... More

I have been fly fishing for over 15 years in the Mt. Shasta area but have never used a guide service. I recently planned a trip to Oregon to fish for salmon on the Columbia and for trout in Eastern Oregon. I decided to wrap up the trip the trip with a day on the Klamath going for steelhead. I...

The trip with Jack Trout and his guides was great. Jack took care of all the pre-planning and organization. They took us to the beautiful McCloud; the fish were there, they taught us how to fish the technical McCloud environment, and everyone had a great time. Highly recommend Jack Trout and his guides. Highly recommend.

A couple of weeks ago, I arranged a 1/2 day trip on the McCloud with Jack Trout. Prior to my trip I explained to Jack that I have bad knee's and asked him if that would preclude me from fishing that river. Jack took me to an area on the river that was manageable and put me on some great... More
