Guide Trip FAQs
We recommend that you touch base at 877-790-5303 or email us one week prior to your scheduled trip departure. This time is used to coordinate the meeting time and place of your first guided day with Fins & Feathers. Also, this is the perfect time to make any special requests regarding diet, type of fishing, length of day, and any need for rental equipment (use is complimentary). Our guides provide just about everything you need in terms of fishing for the day. Please let us know in advance if you will be taking advantage of our complimentary use of rental equipment like waders, boots, rod, or reel.
Flies are included in the price of all guide trips. Non-alcoholic beverages are provided on all guide trips. A full deli lunch is provided on full-day trips.

You can give us a call anytime at 877-790-5303; leave a message after hours and we'll get back to you first thing in the morning. Also, check out the rest of our site for getting up to date information on fishing reports, upcoming events, and general information about the area.

Our guides are among the best in the area and work as hard as any guide anywhere. They rely on gratuities to supplement their income and help defray operating costs like fuel, lunches, and shuttles. If you feel like your guide did a great job and worked hard, please consider rewarding their efforts upon completion of your trip. Gratuities are at your discretion and anything is always appreciated, we recommend $100-$150 a day for a job well done.
