Hosted Trips

Travel With a Great Group and a Host That Really Knows the Area

Every year we offer a number of customized, handpicked trips that are personally organized, lead and hosted by different members of the Yellow Dog team. This is a great way to enjoy a fantastic week of fishing with a fun group of fellow anglers as well as someone who really knows the area, the guides, the fishing, and the overall operation. New hosted dates are being added and posted on this site throughout the year, so be sure to check back on a regular basis!

"I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed my recent hosted trip with Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures. I've only been destination fishing twice before, but fishing with Yellow Dog has taken it to a new level. The attention to detail and the amount of information produced by Yellow Dog was incredible. There really were no unexpected surprises at all ... which is a good thing. The next time I do this, Yellow Dog will be my first phone call. I feel truly blessed to have been a part of this trip. Thanks also for everything you added to the trip by hosting. I learned a ton and enjoyed every aspect of the week!"
