Backcountry Fly Fishing Trips In
Eastern Oregon's Wallowa & Blue Mountains

You don't have to be a pro fly-fisher to join one of our wilderness fly fishing trips. Fishing is (mostly) just an excuse to have a good time. Come to experience the unknown, laugh, sip whiskey under the stars, and chase gorgeous wild trout in lakes carved by glaciers 10,000 years ago.

Tried & True Trips in the Wallowa & Elkhorn Mountains

From River to Lake
(and back again)

A tour of the best fly fishing in the Wallowas. ~35 miles, 4 lakes, 8 miles of wild & scenic river, and countless fishing opportunities.

Be prepared to hike every day, fish every day, go to bed tired and happy. 

In Search of Makinaw

In the early 1900's, an ambitious outdoorsperson introduced Mackinaw (Lake Trout) into a few lakes far within the Eagle Cap Wilderness. Thriving in cold deep water, these fish exist today, some nearly half a century old. 

On this 3 night tour, we hike 8 miles into the wilderness in search of the fabled fish.
