Single Occupancy: $1,795 | Double Occupancy: $1,495 | Kemerer, Wyoming
Package: Includes 4 nights and 3 days of lodging, meals, trespassing fees, guided fishing, and transportation to and from Salt Lake City. All flies, tippets, and leaders provided. Participants provide their own Wyoming Fishing Licenses.
There will be 1 guide per 2 anglers (a maximum of 4 anglers per date). While fishing is a priority, emphasis will be placed on learning new methods of presenting a fly as well as more discriminant fly selection. We will be using a dry fly, nymph, and streamer presentations. This Camp is designed for the angler who wishes to improve his or her skills in all areas of fly fishing. No matter what your current level of expertise, we will design a program to help you get to the next level.
Lodging: You will be staying at the Best Western Plus Hotel in Kemmerer, WY, 2 ½ hours from Salt Lake City, UT. The Camp fee includes single occupancy. This is a very nice, upscale hotel with an exercise room, hot tub, pool, and an awesome breakfast bar.
Fishing: The fishing venue is the Hams Fork River, a 20-minute drive from town. It is a very small, easily wadeable river on a private 28,000-acre ranch. While other anglers may be present, they are easy to avoid. Fishing for very large and numerous Rainbow Trout is spectacular!! [No phone service on the river.] Other rivers are available, depending on conditions.
Meals: Individualized sandwiches will be your lunch fare along with fruit, chips, and cookies. Barbara Mazzarella will prepare home-cooked dinners. Special dietary needs can usually be accommodated. Participants will need to purchase their own alcoholic beverages. On the way from SLC to Kemmerer we will stop at a liquor store.
Equipment: Call ahead for weather and water conditions, but generally a light pair of waders, rubber-soled boots, and a rain jacket will suffice. A 5 weight and/or a 6 weight rod will be fine. The 5/6 should have a weight forward floating line. If you have a 10’ – 15’ sink tip, we may use that also. We have extra of all of the above. Let us know if you would like to use ours.
Travel: We will pick you up at the Salt Lake City Airport at 3:30 PM the Friday prior to your Camp and drive you back to the airport by 9:00 AM the Tuesday after your Camp. Please plan flights accordingly. (Let us know if these times are a problem.)
