"Back Country Trout"...
Late-Sept - Thanksgiving:
Back Country DESCRIPTION BELOW TROUT
IMAGE: A variety of
sizes of the most colorful freshwater fish in the world "Native Brook
Trout" and one nice Wild Rainbow.
........Back Country Trout is dedicated to anglers with any fly fishing
background who would enjoy a "wilderness" outing. With
Back Country Trout, we will explore the more remote, deep wilderness
reaches of trout waters where the ridges are steep, hollows dark and cool,
tall trees, a few waterfalls, an abundance of wildlife, in spring a
million wildflowers and of course, colorful Brook trout (images below).
Is this for you? If your idea of fly fishing is to spend time next to
your vehicle in a stretch of water where the trout have been bought, are
fed by automatic feeders as well as by hand with buckets of Purina Trout
Chow, all because "size matters" and it consumes "no
effort, no challenge and no skill" then this is not for
you. This experience provided by Wild Mountain Trout Fly Fishing is
exactly as our name suggest, Wild. Natural. This is
a Certified Master Naturalist led activity.
As Freshwater Fisheries Biologist note, the higher the elevation, the
colder and cleaner the water, the more unique the diet, the more colorful
the trout. These are the areas we strive to angle with Back Country
Trout in order to catch-and-release the most colorful Native Brook Trout
we can locate. You will put both your hiking and fly fishing skills to the
test to reach our destinations and to successfully fish in spring
water in some of the most beautiful terrain you will ever see .
The hours we select for this type of experience is dependant on the
season (October thru late May), air temperatures and water levels. We may start in the
morning and finish shortly after dark or we may start early afternoon and
finish after dark. All details are worked out over the phone. But
remember, make certain to bring plenty of water, snacks and a flashlight.
To consider enjoying this experience, you are welcome to email first
though all arrangements will be done by telephone.
This is a MASTER NATURALIST Led Activity.
RATES: Full-Day - 1 angler $240 and 2
anglers $325. No half-days because of hiking time.
