After You Book a Trip...With the exception of the Bar X Bar Ranch, you must have a fishing license to fish at any of the locations where we go. We recommend that you buy your fishing license online, through one of the links below. You can then print out a copy or, if you get you license with your mobile phone, you can just save it on the phone directly. If you prefer, you can buy your license "over the counter" at many locations in the area. Depending on which waters you are going to be fishing on your trip, it may be possible to buy a license on the way to the river. Make sure to let your guide know if you were unable to buy your fishing license before the day of your trip.

What To Discuss With Your Guide:
At the beginning of your trip, there are a few things you should make sure your guide knows about. The better informed your guide is - the better your day will be. You should let your guide know what your experience and fitness levels are and if you have any special requests. This will enable your guide to better tailor your trip to be a perfect fit for you.

Check with your guide for current weather conditions and appropriate dress for trip. Below is a checklist of some items for you to think about bringing with you:
