Sample of Typical Itinerary
Flexibility is important in planning your trip. I will always suggest fishing during the times that will be most productive and that may change along with conditions.
4 hour walk and wade
Full day walk and wade
4 hour float trip
6 hour float trip
Full day float trip
Typically full days in spring begin between 7-9 am and run until the fishing dies down which could be 6 pm or later. As the spring season progresses we will most likely fish until dark or just shortly after. A full day goes no less than 8 hours.
Summer trips usually begin around sunrise and end mid-afternoon or begin early afternoon and finish just shortly after sunset.
Fall trips usually begin in the late morning and run at least 4-6 hours. Full days are a possibility.
Winter trips usually begin late morning and run at least 4-6 hours.
