We do our best to keep customers happy and safe, but some things are beyond our control. Your guide might need to cancel or change a trip if the weather or river conditions are unsafe. We won’t cancel fishing trips just because it’s cold, rainy, or snowy. If the river is okay for fishing, your guided fly fishing trip should happen as planned.
