Guided Shoreline Spincast Fishing Trips & Lessons

Meet Brian

My goal is to teach people that want to learn, so they can go fishing alone with more confidence. If you know me, you know that I was born with a fishing pole in my hands. My dad would brag to his buddies and say, “That boy could catch a fish out of a mud puddle.” Fishing is me, and I am fishing. Any species. Any water. Any (legal) method. Let me take you fishing. I’m looking forward to hearing from you!

"5-stars for sure!!!  Brian showed our kids how to get the hook ready and cast to the best areas of the river. The kids caught 6 fish!!!! Brian knows the best areas for fishing but he is also extremely knowledgeable about many many other things! He showed the kids different kinds of rocks and educated them on how they formed. He also taught us a lot about not just the general area but gave us great information on hiking and hunting."

There are a wide variety of trout species to target. Rainbow trout, brown trout, cutthroat trout, lake trout.  There are other game fish to target like walleye, perch, and catfish. Sauger and hybrid bluegill. My expertise is in targeting walleye in the Buffalo Bill Reservoir of which there is no limit and catfish in Big Horn Lake

Do I need to bring anything?
The most important thing to have is quality footwear. if you didn't bring any, check out Waynes Boot Shop in Cody. The terrain varies from easy to rugged and rocky shoreline. Sunscreen’s also recommended. Be sure to bring some sleeves and warmer clothes just in case. You might also consider wearing appropriate clothing for mosquitoes.
