We had a wonderful experience and felt very welcomed by both JD and Travis. We were able to get great advice and supplies from the shop to fish around the area while we visited. We also did the family pontoon trip and had a great time! Kiddos loved fishing and tubing. The lunch was great on board and Travis was great company. They treated our kids wonderfully. We had an awesome experience and would recommend them to others!
This is an outstanding outfitter with people who genuinely care about their customers! My husband and I were extremely lucky to book a trip with Wild Trout Outfitters. The owner, JD, is extremely kind and professional. He was extremely thorough in explaining ALL the costs, right down to the taxes. Just to be clear, the cost to rent the equipment was only $20/person. I read a previous review that implied they were charged $200 for 4 people which almost deterred me from using this company. Glad I trusted my instincts after speaking with JD and booked a trip. Our guide was Aubrey and he was awesome! He is knowledgeable, kind, patient and professional. Given our experience (which is very, very little), he was able to find the right spot on the beautiful Gallatin River. We did catch a few fish and also lost a few on the hook!! Aubrey taught me and my husband techniques on how to fish in both slower and faster currents. He knew where the fish were biting! This trip truly exceeded our expectations and we cannot wait to come back! We also found out that Aubrey was first a customer at Wild Trout Outfitters when he was 13 years old. So any outfitter that can turn a returning customer into an outstanding employee you know is the right outfitter to use!
My husband and I took our kids (ages 7 and 10) fly fishing for the first time with Luke as our guide at Wild Trout Outfitters. We would absolutely do it again and highly recommend Wild Trout. The owner is incredibly friendly, so personable and his dog Hopper is the icing on the cake. Fantastic dog! Luke was an excellent guide. He took the time to explain safety and the proper way to cast at our skill level. We all caught fish and had the most wonderful time!
My husband and I with our three boys had an experience of a lifetime. Our guides Nick and Brenden were amazing. From the experience in the shop before and after - to the river...everyone was awesome. My boys had a trip of a lifetime and memories they will forever have. It’s worth noting that our boys are young - all under the age of 11 and everyone was patient, kind and made the fundamentals of fishing fun yet attainable. Many thanks to JD and his crew - you made a forever impression on our family. Kind regards, the Prices (Tom & Erin)
We had such a fun trip with our guide Mike! He was a blast. It was our first time ever fly fishing and he was great to teach us. We only did the half day - but definitely wished we did the full day! We will definitely be coming back.
