Flats boats

We offer the finest fleet of flats style bay boats in the Eastern Sierra. They range from 21 to 24 feet and can accommodate up to four anglers. We have boats captained by expert guides. This is our flag ship summer time program and we primarily fish the “crown jewel” of the Sierra…Crowley Lake. We will also move the “fish magnets” to Bridgeport Reservoir, Eagle Lake and other fisheries when the bite gets hot, or if a client would like to visit the “other” blue ribbon still waters in this region. Crowley and Bridgeport are open during the general trout season in Mono county and we guide here daily.

Our guides have perfected still water nymphing techniques making it easy for beginning fly fishers, youngsters, and senior anglers to get numerous opportunities at landing the world famous trout on Crowley Lake.  If you are an advanced fly fisher-you may get a sore arm when it gets hot here!  The still water fly fishing program is very user friendly and we strongly suggest this as a guide trip during the months of May through October. In fact; Crowley is the most consistent quality trout fishery in the Eastern Sierra. The still water programs are great for large groups, families and fly fishers that enjoy sharing their fishing experiences together first hand.
