My Promise to you as a client
Sierra Drifters Guide Service was founded in 1997 and is a family operated business that contracts only veteran professional guides and boat operators that are liability insured and bonded. These specially selected individuals have been handpicked by the owner & founder of Sierra Drifters, U.S.C.G. licensed Captain Tom Loe who has personally logged nearly 5000 guided trips in twenty seasons. We are currently the longest running established group of guides in the Eastern Sierra. “I have contracted with many quality guides in this region over the years and these guys have made the cut as our exclusive go to contractors.” Please check out our guide’s page to get a personal look at each of our top notch pro’s and their credentials.
We enjoy instructing first timers, have the patience, equipment, & programs designed for children and those who may be handicapped, or who have seen many trout seasons. Our guides also have the experience & skills to test the metal of even the most accomplished fly fisher. We promise to provide all of the fishing gear needed for your trip. We will NOT ask you to meet at a shop to purchase or rent fishing equipment for the trip. You will NOT be charged additional fees for trips that use a boat. We start our guide trips on location-NOT at a shop. You show up with a current fishing license and a smile, we’ll take care of the rest!
