  • Papa Bill hooked us up with a guide named Pat Kelley. Great, personable guide who put us on the fish! Comfortable, clean boat and great sense of humor. We limited out with laughs and trout. Can't wait to come back again! Thank you!
  • We had an awesome trip with Marty on the White River. We were catching trout nonstop within minutes. There were lots of other guided trips happening at the same time & place but I never saw anyone else catching fish except for us. The shore lunch was great too.
