Rates and Trip Info
The 2009 spring season on the Brule opens on March 29 and fishing generally stays pretty consistent thoughout the month of April and the first part of May. Most seasons, a majority of the fish arrive in the fall, and fishing during that season can be fantastic. Locating fish is the major battle, but they are aggressive and willing to eat when you find them. Call the shop or your guide for up to date information on the run you are planning to fish.
Rates for the 2009 season are $275 for the first rod and $100 for a second. Groups of more than two will typically require a second guide at the same rates. Please contact the shop to discuss special circumstances or any other questions. A minimum 50% deposit is required to reserve your date(s). Deposits are refundable for cancellations made at least 15 days prior to the trip. In the event that a trip cannot be made due to adverse weather or water conditions we will do our best to reschedule, but a full refund will be issued if this is not possible.
What you need:
- A comfortable set of waders that don't leak. Breathables are more comfortable for walking and making crossings, but neoprene will work as well. Felt soled boots are strongly suggested as well- they provide much better footing than lug soles which leads to safer (and drier) crossings. Check out our online store for our selection of wading gear.
- An outer shell (ideally waterproof) and enough layers to be comfortable in a wide range of conditions. Always bring more than you think you need- you will fish much more effectively if the weather is not an issue.
- A comfortable hat and a good pair of polarized sunglasses.
- A willingness and desire to learn the techniques neccessary to be successful. Our guides are there to teach, but the more you can prepare beforehand, the better off you will be. Contact the shop or your guide for more information on the specifics of your trip.
- All flies and terminal tackle, such as tippet/ leader material and weight.
- Upon request, a rod and reel outfit- typically a 9' or 9' 6" 8wt with a floating line.
- Transportation from an arranged meeting location.
note: if you are fishing with more than two anglers, or you would prefer to use your own vehicle please let us know so that we can plan accordingly.
