 Your trip will start with a 3-4 hour morning horseback ride originating from the onsite Rockin’ M stables. Upon finishing your morning horseback adventure you will enjoy a delicious riverside lunch while your guide makes the transition from the horses to the river. The afternoon will be spent fly fishing on the Salt River from a drift boat. All equipment, lunch, and drinks are provided for the horseback/fly fishing adventure. Your guide will give you a fly fishing/horseback riding lesson for those new to the sport.

Fish & Fun

Guide: Darin Day
Favorite Fly: Fat Albert
Favorite Time to Fish: Blinding snow storms mid winter 

Darin has spent the last 18 years guiding hunters and the last several years guiding fishermen on our local waters. When not guiding, he spends time with working with the Teton Raptor Center rescuing  orphaned raptors. 

Guide: Cody Grubbs
Favorite Fly: Beldar Bugger
Favorite Time to Fish: September - November

Cody is an avid angler and outdoorsman. A Washington native and originally a spin fisherman he moved to Wyoming and quickly picked up a passion for fly fishing. A decade later, Cody greatly enjoys sharing his love and knowledge of fly fishing with friends, visitors, and guests. He spends as much time as possible fishing with his wife and teaching their young son on our local waters. Cody and his family have had many adventures chasing fish on the fly all over the west but are always glad to be back to this amazing place we call home. When Cody is not fishing he spends his time hunting food for his family and finding solace in the mountains.

Guide: Tom
Favorite Fly: The fuzzy one with the sharp thing.
Favorite Time to Fish: Summer evenings around beer thirty 

Tom comes to us by way of........well were not sure where Tom comes from. He many have been hatched, or found under a rock or just wandering aimless along the road. Either way, Tom has been guiding for 20 plus years and knows how to catch fish.  



Guide: Byron
Favorite Fly: The one tied on
Favorite Time to Fish: 24/7 

Byron comes to us by way of western New York where he developed his love of 
hockey, both as a spectator and player.  He started his guiding career in southern Oregon, and like the steelhead he chased, he ultimately swan upstream and beached in the Alpine area. When not guiding or trying to find new water to fish, his main focus is trying to be the perfect husband. (it's really not as sweet as it sounds, it's truly self serving so he can remain a guide the rest of the year) Byron started guiding for Pioneer Anglers during the summer of 2017 and is back again this year.  

​​​Our passion is fly fishing 

Join us for either a half day (4 to 6 hrs) or full day (6 to 8+ hrs) trip on the Salt River which flows through the middle of Star Valley Wyoming. The nature of the Salt makes it an outstanding dry fly river, so much so, that most of our clients fish only dry flies! If your a streamer junkie or just like to fish indicators and nymphs, we can do that to. We catch mostly fine spotted Snake River Cutthroats with a mix of browns, rainbows, brookies and the occasional white fish thrown in for good measure. All of our trips are run out of well maintained and equipped drift boats.  

Our typical trip starts at the shop in Alpine where you will meet your guide for the day. We get you set up with Wyoming Fishing Licenses and any last minute personal items and then it's off to the river. Each day is unique, and each section of the river fishes a bit different every day, so if you are wondering which section you will be on, we probably don't know until the day of your trip. This flexibility allows us to cater each trip to your wants and desires.

All trips include rods and reels from Orvis, Sage, Echo and Redington, flies, leaders and odds and ends for the day. Our half day trips include snacks and beverages and the full day trips include a hearty lunch to keep you fueled. If you have ever wanted to try a speciality rod such as fiberglass, bamboo or Tenkara, let us know and we will make it happen.

Our trips are appropriate for all ages and abilities. Our goal is to have fun, catch fish and make memories that last a lifetime.

Fullday-$495.00 for two people.

Whats included-All gear, flies, beverages, snacks and lunch on full day trips.
