A Message from Western River Anglers

Dear Friends,

Our thoughts and well wishes go out to you during these times of unprecedented disruption. We sincerely hope that you and your loved ones are staying safe and healthy. You are in our thoughts!

We are definitely seeing some signs of spring, even up here in the High Country. It’s making us long for long summer days on the river, casting out into a beautiful lake or river with you!

As we all dream of better days to come, please know that we are here for you when you are ready to travel and fish again. We want to share our majestic rivers, scenery and wildlife as well as get you out enjoying all of the wonderful fishing opportunities that Jackson Hole and the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem have to offer.

Many of you have asked recently about our cancelation policy, given how unpredictable life is right now. We get it! That’s why we offer flexible cancellation terms, so you can book with peace of mind. Reserve a trip with us and enjoy the ability to cancel penalty-free up to 72 hours prior to the trip date. We want you to continue planning your much anticipated Western River Anglers fishing trip!

Our iconic western rivers and landscape has stood the test of time. We have no doubt that we will get through this together. We look forward to fishing with you very soon. The fish are waiting! Until then be safe, be strong, and be well.

With strength and gratitude,
Matt & Chase
Owners, Western River Anglers

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…

A Day with City Kids!

At Western River Anglers, while we love taking our clients out on the water, we also love giving back to our community. Last week, we had the opportunity to get involved with City Kids, an organization based in DC that provides kids with experiences outside of the city and outside the classroom.

The organization provides school-year activities and support in DC but then in the summer, the program moves out to Jackson, WY where City Kids provides opportunities for experiential learning, outdoor adventure experiences, and career exploration options for older teens.

We were honored to be able to show some of the City Kids what it’s like to get out on the water and cast a line! Thanks to Frederick Mountain Group who partnered with us for the afternoon to help us continue to show these kids the beauty of Wyoming and adventuring outside.

Hope to see these awesome kids again out on the water soon!
