What Our Clients Say

Hear from those who have experienced our exceptional fly fishing adventures.

I’m not gonna lie, I’ve chased fish in some fancy places. Crystal-clear rivers in Montana, slick salt flats in Florida, even some remote streams in Iceland that felt like stepping onto another planet. But nothing, nothing compares to the backcountry adventure I had with Soda Peak Outfitters.

From the moment I landed in Jackson, Wyoming, it was like stepping into a scene from Yellowstone. The air was crisp, the mountains impossibly majestic, and the anticipation of untouched water buzzing in my veins.

Our guide, Micah, was the real cherry on top. He wasn’t just a guide, he was a walking encyclopedia of the local ecosystem, a master caster, and a campfire storyteller extraordinaire.

We trekked into the mountains on horseback, leaving civilization behind like a shed skin. The trail followed a gurgling creek, promising hidden gems around every bend. Chuck, our wrangler, expertly navigated the terrain, pointing out elk tracks, edible berries, and the occasional eagle soaring overhead. And then, we reached it: a sun-dappled meadow with a turquoise river snaking through the center.

My breath caught in my throat. It was like something out of a fly fishing fairytale. Trout, fat and glistening, were lazily rising to the surface, their fins flashing like emeralds. Micah, with the patience of a saint, got me set up with the perfect dry fly and I waded in, heart pounding.

That first cast, that perfect rise, the tug on the line – it was pure magic. I landed a beautiful brown trout, its colors shimmering like a stained-glass window. And it wasn’t just the fish, it was the feeling. The solitude, the connection to nature, the thrill of the chase – it all came together in that moment.

We spent the next few days exploring hidden valleys, casting to hungry rainbows and cutthroat, sharing stories around crackling campfires, and feasting on cook’s legendary camp cooking. Each day brought new challenges and triumphs, pushing my limits both as a fisherman and as a person.

When it was time to leave, I felt a pang of sadness, but mostly gratitude. Soda Peak Outfitters didn’t just give me a fishing trip, they gave me an experience. They gave me memories that will stay with me for a lifetime, etched in my soul like the rings on a trophy trout.

So, if you’re looking for more than just a few fish on a line, if you’re chasing an adventure that will redefine what it means to connect with nature, look no further than Soda Peak Outfitters. They’ll take you places your rod and reel can only dream of.

Trust me, your soul will thank you.

Forget Instagram-worthy sunsets and overpriced cocktails. My ideal vacation is a symphony of solitude, whispering pines, and the rhythmic tug of a trout on the line. That’s exactly what I found, solo, in the pristine Teton Wilderness with Soda Peak Outfitters.

I’m usually a “wing it” kind of adventurer, so the self-guided option from Soda Peak was tailor-made for me. They stocked me up with everything I needed: top-notch gear and insider tips on hidden gem fishing holes. No hand-holding, just the freedom to explore and the thrill of self-discovery.

Armed with my fly rod and a backpack full of adventure, I set off on horseback, the majestic peaks guiding my way. Every step was a postcard view, from turquoise lakes reflecting the sky to meadows bursting with wildflowers. The gentle creak of the leather saddle and the rhythmic clip-clop of hooves became my personal soundtrack.

Each bend in the trail offered a new fishing haven. Crystal-clear streams cascaded through granite canyons, promising trophy-sized trout lurking in the shadows. I relied on my own instincts, deciphering the language of the water, my casts becoming more precise with every rise. The first time I hooked a feisty cutthroat, its rainbow scales flashing in the sun, pure exhilaration coursed through me. It was a victory earned, a dance between me and the wild, uncharted beauty of the Tetons.

The evenings were an ode to solitude. My campfire crackled, casting dancing shadows on the canvas walls of my tent. The scent of pine needles filled the air, and the only sounds were the hooting of owls and the distant roar of a waterfall. In the vastness of the wilderness, I rediscovered a connection to myself I hadn’t realized was missing.

Soda Peak’s self-guided trip wasn’t just about catching fish. It was about the journey, the challenge, the quiet contemplation under a star-strewn sky. It was a chance to push my limits, both physically and mentally, and emerge stronger, more connected to nature and myself.

So, if you’re craving an adventure that goes beyond the selfie stick and the curated feed, if you yearn for the whisper of wild wind and the tug of a hidden trout, head to the Tetons with Soda Peak Outfitters. Embrace the solitude, the challenge, and the serenade of your own footsteps on the pristine path. You might just discover a symphony within yourself.

P.S. Don’t miss the chance to stargaze on a clear night – the Milky Way paints the Teton sky like a celestial masterpiece.

Let’s be honest, fly fishing trips can be a dime a dozen. Scenic rivers, fancy lodges, even gourmet meals on the banks – it all starts to blur after a while. But let me tell you, my backcountry adventure with Soda Peak Outfitters shattered that mold like a dry fly on a glassy surface.

I wasn’t just casting to trout, I was diving headfirst into the raw, untamed soul of the Wyoming wilderness. We traded comfy beds for star-studded skies, fancy meals for camp-cooked feasts that tasted like victory itself. Our guide, Mike, wasn’t just a master of the river, he was a walking encyclopedia of the mountains, a campfire philosopher, and a damn good cook to boot.

The trek into the backcountry was equal parts challenge and awe. Towering pines whispered secrets as we followed hidden trails, sunlight dappling the forest floor like scattered jewels. My city muscles protested, but the reward was worth every bead of sweat – a secret oasis tucked away in the mountains, a river so pristine it mirrored the heavens.

And then came the fishing. Each cast was a prayer, each rise a benediction. I landed rainbows that shimmered like stained glass, browns that fought with the fury of mountain winds, and cutthroats that slashed through the water like living lightning. It wasn’t just about the fish, though. It was about the moment, the connection with nature, the primal dance of hunter and hunted.

Mike, like a river-whispering guru, helped me unlock the secrets of the water. He taught me to read the ripples, anticipate the strikes, and cast with a precision that would make a laser jealous. By the end of the trip, I wasn’t just catching fish, I was conversing with the river, a silent dialogue woven from line and instinct.

The nights were filled with stargazing that would humble any astronomer, campfire stories that crackled with the wisdom of the wilderness, and a quiet communion with my own soul. In the vastness of the mountains, under the twinkling tapestry of the night sky, I rediscovered a part of myself I’d forgotten existed.

Coming back from that trip, I wasn’t just a guy with a few trophy fish and some sore muscles. I was a changed man. I carried the whispers of the wind in my ears, the taste of campfire smoke on my tongue, and the spirit of the wild etched deep in my heart.

So, if you’re looking for more than just a fishing trip, if you’re yearning to trade comfort for connection, to lose yourself in the wild and find yourself anew, then Soda Peak Outfitters is your answer. They’ll take you beyond the beaten path, to the heart of Wyoming’s raw beauty, and maybe, just maybe, back to yourself.
