Fly fishing for trout
Southeastern Oregon's high desert
outback and alpine highlands offer an exceptionally diverse
array of productive,yet, remote fisheries for the fly fishing
enthusiast. I have an arsenal of rivers, creeks and isolated
stillwaters that will captivate anyone's angling imagination.
Primarilly, we will be pursuing the incredibly adaptive and
resilient native desert 'redband' rainbow trout. May, June and
July are the prime months to plan your outback flyfishing expedition
with Jack's Guide Service.
All trout expeditions are specially
tailored to each and every individual group's desires and needs.
Fly fishing adventures may range from casual day long float
trips in my custom outfitted fourteen foot Avon raft....to challenging
hikes down into steep lava rock canyons in order to get a shot
at truly undisturbed fish.
I offer a wide range of choices
for trout fishing activities... from staying in hotels and day
tripping ... to setting up camps in private settings so that
we can get a real taste for the surrounding countryside. Have
you ever heard Coyotes howl while sleeping under the stars?
Wild Billy Lake
For those of you who absolutely
want total privacy there is Wild Billy Lake. I have been granted
the special privilege of guiding fly fishermen on this incredibly
productive lake. The lake comprises over three hundred surface
acres of potential trophy fishing for Kamloops rainbows and
Donaldson landlocked steelhead in an exclusively private setting.
Wild Billy Lake is a 'pay for
fishing' lake. In other words, I have to pay the owners $150
per angler to fish here. This fee, combined with my own guiding
fee...adds up to a steep price. Is it worth it? MOST DEFINITELY!!!!
Wild Billy Lake is remote and totally private. There are never
more than three boats on it at any given time. The cabins are
comfortable and well equipped. And, to top it all off, the fishing
The average trout weighs in at
around three to four pounds....with the possibility of some
even larger slabs (6-8 lbs.!!!) thrown in there every now and
again just to keep hopes high and hearts pounding! I can guarantee
that these are some of the fastest, strongest fighting trout
you have ever encountered. These hardy fish will definitely
take you into your backing!
I strongly suggest booking well
in advance for Wild Billy... as the word is getting out about
the incredible fishing taking place on this scenic and secluded
