DO I NEED TO MAKE A RESERVATION FOR A GUIDED FISHING TRIP?  back to top of page

Although reservations are not a necessity, it is highly suggested that you contact us as soon as you know your travel plans.  With a reservation we can assure you that you will be able to fish the exact dates that you want.  We do only a select number of guided fishing trips every year to ensure the quality and enjoyment of each trip.  If you would like help in picking the best time to fish with Four Seasons Anglers or to see if a date is available please give us a call at 307-721-7-4047 or email us.

WHAT SIZE GROUP CAN YOU ACCOMODATE ON A GUIDE TRIP?  back to top of page

Four Seasons Anglers is experienced in planning for and accommodating large groups of fishermen. We will take care of all the details of your fishing vacation, including meals, lodging, entertainment, and recreation. We have numerous experienced local guides at our disposal, which ensure that everyone you are fishing with has a quality fishing experience.  If you would like to inquire about booking a trip for a large group please give us a call at 307-721-4047 or email us.

WHAT TIME OF YEAR IS BEST TO GO ON A GUIDED FISHING TRIP?  back to top of page

That is a muliple level question.  First, it depends on what type of water you wish to fish.  We have multiple waters to choose from including, the upper North Platte River,  the Gray Reef, the Miracle Mile, the Big Laramie River, and of course our Private Stillwaters.  Each of these fisheries can fish well at different times of the year. Second, it depends on what kind of fishing you prefer.  Certain times of the year fish better with different fishing methods.  For instance, chucking streamers at the banks of the upper North Platte for large browns and rainbows is best in the spring, just before and after the runoff, and agian in the fall.  If you’re a dry fly fisherman, the beginning of June through the middle of July and again is September for the Tricos, is the best time to fish southeast Wyoming.  Third, any time you can get away it is a good time to go fishing. We can always assure you a place with good fishing prospects and if we can’t we will be upfront and honest about the current fishing conditions. We will not try to talk you into a trip when there is no chance of catching fish or if the conditions are not up to par.  To get up to date information on how the fisheries in our area are fishing or to check on available dates for a guided trip give us a call at 307-721-4047 or email us.

WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING ON A GUIDED FISHING TRIP?  back to top of page

 Most of the things you should bring are things that you would bring on any trip taking place outside.  Below is a list of the things that you will want to have with you on a guided fishing trip with Four Seasons Anglers.  Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions about what to bring by calling us at 307-721-4047 or email us.

WYOMING FISHING LICENSE You will need a Wyoming fishing license at all our destinations.

To get more information click here.

POLARIZED SUNGLASSES This is the one piece of equipment I refuse to fish without.

RAIN GEAR  It’s nice not to get figid cold because of a brief Wyoming afternoon shower.

WARM CLOTHING It can cold just about any month in Wyoming.  If you plan to fish with us from April through May or in the fall make sure you have a warm hat, gloves, windbreaker, and multiple layers, just in case of bad weather.
WADERS You will definitly want waders if you plan to do any wade fishing with us in the spring and fall but they are also a great way to keep dry if does decide to rain. During the months of June, July and August the water and air temps are usually comfortable for wet wading.  If you don’t own a pair of waders we can make arrangements for you to borrow a pair or we can point you in the right direction on the purchase of a new pair.
RODS Bring your favorite 4 to 7 weight rod.  If you don’t have a fly rod we can loan you one during your guide trip or help you decide on a fly rod that would work best for you in our fly shop.  If you plan to spin fish we ask that you bring your own spinning rod and tackle.

CAMERA You will definitly want to bring along a camera to capture the Wyoming wildlife, scenery, and of course the fish on your guided trip.  Make sure you have solid physical evidence to show your friends and family when you get back from your trip.  Your guide will also have a camera to capture the more candid moments.
PERSONAL NECESSITIES Please remember to bring any medications or personal necessities on your guided trip including, sunscreen, bug spray, eye drops, insulin, heart pills, or headache medicine.  Your guide will have a First Aid Kit but it will not be equipped for major medical needs such as diabetes.

DO I NEED TO BRING MY OWN FLIES AND GEAR?  back to top of page

We supply all the flies and tippet material during your guide trip  for FREE, but if you have any flies or fishing gear that you would like to use on your trip please bring it along.  We feel that confidence in your gear and especially your flies is very important in how well you present them to the fish and in turn how productive they are.  For more information on what flies work best on certain fisheries in southeast Wyoming give us a call at 307-721-4047 or email us.

ARE MEALS INCLUDED ON GUIDED FISHING TRIPS?  back to top of page

Lunches are included on all full day guided float and wade fishing trips.  If you have special menu concerns such as diabetes or food allergies please let us know so we can take the appropriate precautions.  Half day trips include beverages (water and softdrinks) and snacks only.  If you would like to arrange to have a lunch on a half day trip for a small fee please let us know when you book your trip.  Meals in our multi day trips varry depending on how many days of fishing and your prefernce.  Some of our clients enjoy visiting some of the local establishments for breakfast and dinner.  Please call us at 307=721-4047 or email us to customize your trip.
