Had the privilege of doing a 1/2 day fly fishing trip in the Sierra National Forest for wild trout with Sierra Fly Fisher.
Jimmy and Ron were a pleasure to work with. They were very professional and prompt with any communications to set up and prep for the trip. I had a fantastic day on the water seeking out wild trout and managed to hook a few and land a couple.
Thanks to Sierra Fly Fisher I will have some great memories.

Spencer and Dwayne were so sweet and kind to our family. We scheduled a half day fly fishing trip with them and it did not disappoint! They were professional, kind, quick to respond to our text and emails. Spencer was so patient with our kids as they had never fly fished before. He was attentive as well. They both have years of experience and know the more secluded spots to fish away from crowds. They took upmost care of our family and made it a pleasant experience for us! I definitely recommend booking a lesson with them!
