Guided Fishing Salmon River
While at this time the Troutfitter does not offer guided fishing we do have a small group of professional guides that we highly recommend. Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.
Matt’s love of rivers and flyfishing started as a teen in the cold waters of the Oregon Cascades. As a whitewater canoe enthusiast and an avid trout fisher, he soon discovered a passion for the winter steelhead of the Pacific Northwest coastal rivers. Moving east in 2006, Matt relocated to Central New York, where he has spent the last decade exploring hundreds of waterways in New York and New England. As a guide, Matt will share his knowledge, success and experience with his clients so they have the opportunity to share theirs with their friends and family. His priorities on the water are safety, learning, and enjoyment.

Call him “Rocky”.
Rocky began fishing the Salmon River in the early 90’s after retiring as a Regular Army Officer. He has been employed by the DSR since 1999, except for a 5 year Army recall with 27 months in Iraq. Rocky began guiding DSR Lodge Guests in ’08 and has since been continuously on the Salmon River. He has been building rods, fly tying and lure making since the mid-50s.
Since receiving a Guide’s License, Rocky has been continuously researching the fish and fishery and has a well-developed presentation on “The History of the Landlocked Atlantic Salmon; It’s Extirpation and Recovery”. He has presented before TU Chapters, other fishing clubs and Historical Societies throughout the Northeast.
Rocky provides first class switch rod equipment and light spinning tackle and will spend the time to teach you the fundamentals. His focus is to provide you with the skills and confidence so that you don’t need his services in the future.
