Said Creek Outfitters

Fishing

Dreaming about casting your line into a crystal-clear stream miles and miles from the nearest road and well out of cell phone range? Our horse-assisted fishing expeditions help anglers get deep into the backcountry to find the most beautiful trout streams and mountain lakes so you can test your luck with the Browns, Brookes, Rainbows, and occasionally Goldens that call Wyoming home. Saddle up and head into the woods where you’ll create a basecamp for homecooked meals and evenings under the stars.

ALL INCLUSIVE

Sometimes you don’t have a week to fish, you just have a day, but let us help you make the most of it.

Meet up with your guide at the crack of dawn, quickly go over your gear, then enjoy coffee and breakfast and discuss fishing strategy on the way to the trail head. Head into the mountains on a trout seeking steed with a knowledgeable guide who knows the way to some hidden lakes and streams-way off the beaten path.

RIDING ABILITY

Beginner to Advanced

A day of horseback riding and fishing require stamina and the ability to ride through occasionally challenging terrain, at a walking pace. These rides give anglers access to high mountain lakes and streams, geological treasures, and views of some of Wyoming’s most iconic mountain ranges. Riders should be prepared to spend between 2 to 4 hours in the saddle per day.

RIDING ABILITY

Beginner to Advanced

Overnight fishing expeditions require stamina and the ability to ride through occasionally challenging terrain, at a walking pace. These rides cover a lot of ground and give anglers access to high mountain lakes and streams, geological treasures, and views of some of Wyoming’s most iconic mountain ranges. Ample breaks are given throughout the day to enjoy meals, take in the beautiful scenery, and of course, fish, but riders should be prepared to spend between 2 to 4 hours in the saddle per day.

Riding Requirements & Considerations

Riding Requirements

  • Maximum Weight

    250 Pounds

  • Minimum Height

    48 Inches

  • Minimum Age

    10 Years Old – Day Trips
    14 Years Old – Overnight Fishing Trips

  • Helmets

    Helmets are required for any rider younger than 18 years of age. Helmets are provided for all riders and it is strongly recommended that a rider chooses a helmet and wears for the duration of his or her time on horseback.

  • Cell Phones

    Riders are asked to place cell phones on silent/airplane mode and store in saddle bags during the ride. There will be plenty of time to take pictures, but from the ground, not from the back of a horse.

4 Day/3 Night Fish Expedition Considerations

We give the same advice to our overnight pack trip groups as we do to those planning to book a multi day fishing expedition, well slightly adapted… These trips take months to plan and implement. We take into consideration the vision or our clients and the projected conditions on the ground to build each experience. Much depends on historical weather projections to help determine the trailheads and trajectory of these trips. If its storming heavily in the Wind River Range and the streams, creeks, rivers are blown out with mud, we can pivot to the Absarokas if necessary.

Before you book a multi day fishing trip, be honest with yourself about what you really want to accomplish. We are in Wyoming, one of the most rural states in the lower 48. Yes, bears are real. We are riding horses, out of cell phone service and generally submerged in nature. It rains, snows, blows, storms. Lightning hits the mountain top and then it hits the valleys. We ride up to the mountain tops and down to the valleys. Every weather condition imaginable happens within 5 minutes.

And then, you are casting against a golden sunset, wading in the stream, fish are jumping. Completely at peace in negative ions. OR you are sitting on the porch in JULY listening to hail drumming on the tin roof, drinking hot tea to warm your fingers, so you can tie a fly with a feather you found on the trail. Waiting for dinner to be served.

If you think it sounds totally up your ally and exciting, we are still going to ask you a lot of questions about what you are seeking by booking a lodge based, multi day horse assisted fishing expedition.

Because we have to tell the horses, then they tell us yea or nay.

Pre-Trip Checklist

Day Trips

We want you to have the best time on your fishing trip, and that requires a little bit of preparation on your part. Below are some things you will need in order to spend time out on the trail:

  • Appropriate Clothing
    • Sturdy Wet Wicking Pants-Need to be good for riding and fishing
    • Long sleeve shirt
    • Boots (appropriate for both riding and walking)
    • Wading Boots (will go on pack mule)
    • Sun Glasses (well fitted)
    • Hat (well fitted and/or with buckaroo strap)
    • Layers (include a rain layer)

    Wear comfortable clothing, but try to avoid loose layers, flowing scarves, jewelry or non-essential items that could catch on the saddle horn, snag on a branch, or fall off while riding or fishing. When a rider needs to take off or put on layers, please ask your guide so that he or she can stop the ride. You will then dismount before taking off or putting on layers of clothing.

  • Fishing Gear

    Bring your own gear, or let us know if you would like for us to supply gear ahead of time. We know this is personal. We do have a fly shop in town and some local legends who can advise on what the fish in our mountain streams find enticing.

  • Helmets

    Helmets are highly recommended and made available to guests upon arrival. Please be aware that barrettes, hair extensions, large scrunchies, etc will be uncomfortable beneath a helmet and you should consider removing before the ride.

  • Self-Care
    • Full Water Bottle (hydrate as much as possible prior to the ride and during breaks in riding)
    • Sunscreen/Bug Spray (Please apply prior to the start of the ride)
    • Epi Pen/Personal Medication (bring along medication that you may need during the course of the day)
  • Cell Phone/Camera

    Cell phones are incredibly distracting for horses, riders, and guides. Cell phones must be placed in off or airplane mode prior to the start of the ride. Guests are not permitted to use cameras/cell phones while riding and must wait until they are dismounted and their horse is safely secured prior to cell phone/camera use.

  • Snack

    Snacks and lunch are provided for guests participating in half and full day rides. Guests participating in shorter rides are still encouraged to bring their own snack (granola bar/trail mix). Always bring water!

Overnight Fishing Expedition

A clothing and gear checklist will be sent prior to the trip to guide your preparations.
