some friends related their great experiences with Jack, and I recently had the opportunity of a sosl one-day guided float trip with him. It was AWESOME!! I caught 5 fish including 3 winter steelhead, about 5 lb each. More significant for me, as a fairly new fly fisherman, Jack's teaching ability is first class. His 30+ years experience, local knowledge, and patience was like graduate school for fly fishing. It was fun floating the river with him, he has a great demeanor. Lunch was fresh grilled tri-tip steak and fresh veggies he prepared on shore while I took a few minutes to practice my shore fishing under his watchful eye. I am a definite return customer!

Jack hooked it up once again! My dad and I were traveling in Chile and Argentina Patagonia region and wanted to set up a guided trip on the infamous Futaleufú River. It was last minute, and jack found a phenomenal local guide who knew the complicated river like the back of his hand. It was the first time I sight fished in crystal clear water for giant rainbow trout with dry flies. It was like fishing in an aquarium. Our guide Género Vega positioned the raft perfectly every time and we caught lots of amazing fish. Thanks again Jack!

Spent honeymoon in the Caymans and didn’t schedule a trip prior to getting there. Convinced the new wife for a half day and immediately had Jack looking for a guide for me. Jack found me a great local guide with two days notice and got my first Tarpon on an 8wt!! Responded quickly and cares about getting people on fish who are unfamiliar with the area. Highly recommend Jack

My wife and I had a very nice day of fly fishing on the Basca River in the Transylvania territory of Romania. Guide George Minculete was very pleasant, fluent in English, and an expert teacher of fly fishing technique. he was especially effective in helping my wife Alba to learn the method of swinging wet flies for the grayling in the river. She caught a nice one! The next day, he took me to the Tarnava River in central Transylvania. This is an excellent tail-water fishery for wild and stocked brown trout and wild European grayling. There were good caddis and blue-winged olive hatches, and I caught lots of browns, including a couple of large ones, and one grayling, mostly on blue-wing olive flies. Lunches were wonderful authentic Romanian dishes made by George's mother. I highly recommend Jack Trout as an outfitter and George Minculete as a guide. My only advice is to go before Sept. 30 as after that date many, but not all, good streams close for the season.

Spent the day with Jack and his cool dog Trinity on the Klamath River chasing steelhead. Jack is very skilled and very patient as I’m a rookie fly fisher. Ended up catching about 10 fish with three being adult steelhead that were great fighters. From start to finish a great experience I’d definitely recommend. Thanks Jack!

Being guided by Jack Trout on the Upper Sacramento River has been on my bucket list for years. The trip did not disappoint. Jack is an excellent white water rafter and excellent fly fishing instructor. I have fly fished for over 25 years but learned techniques in the first 10 minutes with Jack that I didn’t know and continued to learn throughout the day. He is an interesting conversationalist with vast life experiences, but is always attentive to the anglers needs. He also provides a great lunch and has a cool canine companion. Overall one of the best days ever, and I highly recommend a guided trip with Jack Trout.

What a fantastic experience. From start to finish, my dad and I had the best day chasing steelhead with Jack. He showed us how to navigate the side float style fishing, which we were beginners at, with expertise, and we both landed beautiful adult steelhead. Plenty of laughs, good stories, and local natural history knowledge. I’m also a professional cycling guide and have worked with hundreds of guides in all corners of the industry. I’d recommend Jack Trout’s guiding service to anyone who wants an authentic and expertly guided day on the water.

Jack went above and beyond to get me in contact with a fly fishing guide in the Spanish Pyrenees. You don’t often see people take the extra steps

If you want to include fly fishing in your next trip (you should) give them a shout. It doesn’t have to be an ultra expensive high end ordeal.

Went with Jack Trout for my first time fly fishing and it was amazing! We floated the upper sac river which is beautiful! Jack is so knowledgeable and knows how to get you hooked up on beautiful fish both on dry and nymphs. I had very little experience fly fishing going in but he was very patient and understanding and got me on some beautiful trout. I can honestly say my day out with Jack was the best day of fishing I've ever had and he taught me alot! Already looking into my next trip with Jack Trout!
