Pheasant Tail Tours can provide a variety of fishing adventures. Please talk with us about how we can maximize your trip.


Full Day Fly Fishing Float Trips

Full days are roughly 8 hours. Beginning early in the morning with a quick breakfast including coffee, juice, bagels and muffins. Then its off to the river. Once launched we begin our first leg of the fishing journey. A 3 to 4 hour float leading up to lunch which consists of a delicious bagged lunch from a local deli or a gourmet streamside barbeque at no extra coast. (Streamside barbeque takes a little over an hour where a bagged lunch takes as little or long as you desire.) Guests that opt for the Streamside barbeque may feel free to continue fishing, take a swim or just relax and take it all in from the scenic rivers edge. At the conclusion of lunch we will relaunch and continue on down river. Fishing for 3 to 4 more hours on our way to the takeout.
