WRA Guides Grammy-winning Portugal. The Man

Western River Anglers (WRA) continued efforts to give back to the community this August by sponsoring Midsummer Melt, a charity concert with Grammy award-winning band Portugal. The Man. Midsummer Melt benefited the Alpine Science Institute (ASI) of Central Wyoming College and Protect Our Winters (POW). ASI researches and brings attention to receding glaciers in the Wind River Mountain Range of Wyoming. POW is a nonprofit founded by professional snowboarder Jeremy Jones that brings attention to climate change through utilizing action sport athletes with large social media followings.


As fly fishers dependent on a healthy watershed after each winter, WRA is committed to supporting conservation efforts and practicing environmental responsibility. While catching fish is the main goal of any WRA expedition, we hope to do so humanely and attentively to our impact on local ecosystems. 

After Midsummer Melt, WRA was lucky enough to have the opportunity to take Portugal. The Man out on the Snake River. Not only was the fishing trip successful but the Portugal. The Man members represented well, having plenty of outdoors experience. Check out some of these photos…

  1. For one whole year I looked forward to our trip to the Teton with the family, and the one thing I looked forward to the most was fly fishing, something I had never done before. We talked to many possible guides before arriving in Wyoming, but after talking on the phone to Matt and reading the bios for both Matt and Chase, we decided to go with Western River Anglers. Best decision ever!! They were knowledgeable, professional, helpful, patient, kind and fun. We, my husband Mark, my son Matt and my son-in-law Matt and I, had a terrific day and Matt and Chase helped all 4 of us achieve success at fly fishing. I cannot recommend Western River Anglers highly enough and look forward to our next trip!
