Destination Fishing Guide

Hosted Flyfishing Travel with Rooster and The Stonefly

Following the Montana season, the work and more importantly, the fishing is far from over. Each winter Rooster hosts groups of anglers at several different destinations. Why a hosted trip? It's simple - we have been there, and know what to expect. We know the lodge, the guides, the food and the fishery. As a guest on a hosted trip, you can expect nightly instruction in everything from knot tying to presenting a fly. Other popular nightly topics are photography, fishing with a hangover and fly tying. Your gear will be rigged properly each morning and like so many of you that visit us in Montana, you become family. We will bring enough tackle, flies, know-how and fun to make your vacation the best it can be. Trust your guide on that one. After all, these are the places, fisheries and people we spend our money on as well! Feel free to give me a call if you’d like to discuss any of these trips.

2017/2018 Hosted Trip Schedule - 7 nights and 6 days of fishing $4795 per person. This is a flats fishery for Permit, Snook, Tarpon and Bonefish. I have returned to this lodge each winter for over 10 years, as this fishery, guides, and accommodations are all first class.

March 1 – April 15th : Forks WA Steelhead on the Hoh, Bogacheil, Calawah, Sol Duc and Queets Rivers

As always, there is very limited availability for this season, as 100% of our guests re-book the “same dates next year”. Each season I am able to accommodate a handful of new anglers and share this fishery with them. Rates start at $595 per day, for two anglers. Please email me if you would like to get on the list!

April 15th – June 1st : Southeast Alaska Steelhead on the Adventurous

For over 20 years, Rooster and Travis Peterson have been searching the waters of Southeast Alaska for the next untapped Steelhead fishery aboard the mother ship Adventurous. With Captain Travis and Rooster as your guide, you can expect to fish proven fisheries as well as explore new ones in a week of fishing the massive archipelago of Southeast Alaska. This season, as all steelhead seasons are, is very limited in scope. At this time, we are taking reservations for 2017. If you enjoy remote places and truly wild fish – this is a fishery you need to see.

Redfish in Port Sulphur, Lousiana, December 7-9 – OPEN, December 10-12 - OPEN

Fish the massive Mississippi delta region with Captains Nick Sassic and Scotty MacCalla based out of their redfish camp in Port Sulphur, LA. This trip is designed with the fisherman in mind, as lodging and dining is what I refer to as “an all hands evolution”. We stay with the guides, eat with the guides and fish long hours in search of tailing redfish and black drum. Good action is typically the norm, and the guiding is top notch. If you enjoy cajun food, sight casting to large, hungry fish, and the ever present banter of fishing guides, you will re-book this trip every year.
