Jack Trout provided us with two of the best guides out there, Chris and Big Tom. Having a group of old guys can be a difficult task, and these two guides handled our physical deficiencies and screw ups with grace and patience. Everyone caught a big fish and had a fantastic experience over two days of fishing. This is an all day adventure on a Northern California river. They row you in a drift boat for many miles. It is not unusual to catch 5-10 fish each in a day.

Jack connected me with a local guide in Catalonia for a day trip - I caught over 50 trout, many wild, and enjoyed a delicious lunch at a local restaurant. My guide showed me a great day of fishing and fun and I could not be more pleased with Jack's guide recommendation. I will definitely use Jack Trout next time I am booking a guided trip abroad.

A couple of months ago, my wife and I were planning a multi-island trip to the Bahamas, I tried my best to locate my own fly fishing guides. That turned out to be a big mistake. I couldn’t get the job done and trust that the guides I picked knew their stuff. I just got that uncomfortable feeling. I decided to change search tactics; went back online and came across Jack Trout. Per Jack’s website, I saw that he guides trips all over the world and networks with the best guides in every location. This includes the Bahamas.
I connected with Jack online. Thru calls, texts and emails he made all the connections I needed for each guide in the Bahamas. I know this sounds like an infomercial, but I needed a bit of hand holding to know all was well and Jack did that without question.
My first stop was Nassau. Nassau is not known for fly fishing or bone fishing, but that’s because the people who would like to fish there don’t know who Jack knows. There are out islands a short boat ride from Nassau filled with bone fish. No joke. Jack’s guide knew just where we needed to go. The guide also told me that Jack makes sure to buy him any equipment he needs for his clients.
Jack’s home base is Mt. Shasta California where he guides Steelhead fishing trips. We will be able to choose our own lodging, and level of price/comfort, and fish with him. I just sent him an email to let him know we are looking for our next trip.
Have fun.

Wyatt took my 20 year old son out for a day of wade fishing on the upper SAC. Wyatt is young, but has a level of Fly Fishing wisdom beyond his years. I've been fly fishing for 30 years, but I still learned several new techniques casting weighted nymphs and reading the water. We caught some nice Rainbows, but the real benefit of the trip was the skills that we picked up due to Wyatt's excellent teaching.

Wyatt is very knowledgeable and patient and is very eager to teach while out on the water. My son and I both enjoyed spending the day with Wyatt. I would highly recommend him regardless of age or fly fishing ability.

Great experience fishing with Jack Trout and Sidney, our guide. Extremely knowledgeable and very helpful when it came to teaching us to fly fish...we were catching fish within 30 mins and had a blast. Sidney was very accommodating, patient, and very helpful. My wife, who doesn't fish, was fly fishing and catching fish.

Jack took my son and I for a wonderful day of fishing, floating the upper Sacramento. The weather was a bit wet in the morning so he waited a few hours so we'd optimize our fishing for when the weather warmed up and the fishing would be better. Even though we started later, he put in a full day so we could maximize our time on the water. Nothing more enjoyable than floating down the river on a nice day, catching beautiful trout, and good conversation. Very memorable experience. Thanks Jack.

I am the client David A referred to in his review on May 14. I am a senior citizen and have balance issues and can't wade quickly (or climb banks quickly), Jack moved a few yards downstream and motioned for me to join him. I made a couple more casts and then started to move down when I noticed another man going down the path to where Jack was waiting. I couldn't hear what they were saying, but Jack came back and said he had asked the man not to take that spot because he was bringing me down to fish it. He said the man asked whether he was trying to claim the whole river for his client. I have fished in many rivers in many states and would not have tried to cut someone off from a few yards downstream when their guide was trying to bring them down to the spot. I have fished with Jack before and always found him to deal courteously with other guides and their clients.

The process was very easy I booked through Jack Trout then paid the remainder balance when I arrived the guy picked me up it was about a 30 minute boat ride with beautiful scenery anchored the boat and got into big schools of bonefish we basically waded all day the guide provided wading boots I fly fished and had plenty of opportunities at fish we saw some schools that were over 100 fish he also accommodated for the beginners with spin tackle for a buddy I brought with me we ended up with 4 fish which was more than enough to please me because the wind was 25 to 30 I would highly recommend jack trout and Sidney walker

We fished the Klamath River just below Copco Dam Its a great location, not crowded. The fishing was good, we caught some big ones and a lot of smaller fish. The guide worked hard, rowing back up river to get another drift on promising water. We had a nice lunch that Jack cooked on the river edge as we waited.

What a great human being!! Jack took me and my buddies out on the McCloud River a couple weeks ago and we had the most amazing day. He is knowledgeable, super helpful and just a super person. I highly recommend Jack. First class all the way. Food was great, his gear was great and like I said. Just a solid guy. 5 stars! Coming back soon. 🎣
