Ryan is the real deal. Great with the kids AND Olds. We only hooked him once and he still liked us. On a tough day when most boats were skunked we came home with a nice cooler of fish. I’ll use him again.

Ryan was amazing. He knew all the great spots. He educated us, was patient, funny, friendly. My wife caught a bunch of trout and has a new passion for fishing. Great music on the boat. Listen to Ryan's suggestions and you'll have a great time. Looking forward to coming back ...Read More

Ryan is a five star guide and an amazing person. My 2 boys and I had a trip with memories that will last a lifetime. One thing I can promise you about Ryan, you won't find a guide more dedicated , respectful , and hardworking.
