We are happy to pick you up from your place of lodging in Jackson or Teton Village. We will make arrangements for those folks lodging in outlying area to meet at a convenient location. Folks staying within Yellowstone Park will meet us at the Lewis Lake boat dock.

Our day will start with a 1.5 hour drive north through Grand Teton and Yellowstone National
Parks to our destination, Lewis Lake. We will stop for fishing licenses on the way, or if you have a chance you can get a fishing license in advance for Yellowstone at the Visitor Center in Jackson, or at any ranger station in Yellowstone Park.

Lewis Lake is actually a chain of lakes consisting of Lewis and Shoshone Lakes, connected by about a mile of river channel, known as the Lewis/Shoshone channel. Every trip is a little different, but we generally will spend time motoring on Lewis Lake itself, and spend time rowing up into the channel as well. Depending on the group we also will have a chance to disembark from the boat and hike even further into the channel, approaching Shoshone Lake, and wade fish some of the fantastic water of the channel.

Dry fly fishing, streamer fishing, and spin cast fishing are all a possibility throughout the day. We will have all equipment needed, but please feel free to bring any appropriate equipment that you like. Just remember no lead, one hook per lure, barbless hooks only, and no bait is allowed in Yellowstone Park.

All native trout will be released back to the water alive, but we will have the opportunity to keep lake trout, and on occasion, brown trout as well.

We try to be back on the road by 4pm, getting us back to Jackson by 6:00. Departure and return times however can be flexible if need be.
