There are few better places in North America to take your fly fishing skills to the next level than the rivers and streams of Yosemite National Park. Becoming a better fly fisher requires the right equipment and a knowledge of where to cast, and this adventure in an iconic location puts the pieces together for you at a value no solo fisher can match. Begin by letting certified local experts teach you how to read the river and fit you for the proper equipment. Then, during three afternoons and evenings of fishing with individualized instruction, improve your casting, fly-tying and river-reading skills while at the same time gaining firsthand knowledge of Yosemite from experts who truly know the park.


• An avid fly fisher and experienced teacher leads classroom sessions on local streams and fly-tying techniques, and all required equipment is provided by a local outfitter.
• Fish for three days in a group of four casters and one instructor at two premier locations— on the Merced River and Big Creek in summer and on the Merced River and Tuolumne River in fall.
• Take a bus field trip to the iconic sites of Yosemite Valley, and commute through the park to each fishing location with interpretation of the natural environment, local cultural history and issues affecting the park.
