Happy New Year! 

It is my hope that you find a lot of great fishing holes in 2019!  Enjoy.

Sadly, this is my last correspondence on the website.  I am retiring and closing the business.  If you need to contact me for any reason feel free to call me at 307-587-3059 and leave a message- I will be out fishing.




Fishing Bamboo is Our Passion!

We are dedicated to preserving the Greater Yellowstone ecosystem. All pictures on this page and the fishing report are of fish caught in the Cody area within the last couple days on guided trips and of our personal days on the water. This will keep you up-to-date with what's happening right now! We hope you enjoy them.

Guide to Pages:

Come on a Cody, Wyoming fly fishing adventure of a life time with us at Eastgate Anglers, located 50 miles east of Yellowstone National Park in Cody, Wyoming.  Eastgate Anglers offers guided fly fishing adventures on the Shoshone River, including the North Fork and South Fork of the Shoshone, the Greybull, the Bighorn in Wyoming,  and the Clarks Fork of the Yellowstone.  Guided fly fishing walk wade and float trips are available.  Trout length average 13 to 15 inches, with many larger fish waiting to be caught.  Newton Lake and Luce Lake, just outside of Cody, Wyoming, are also used for float tube fishing and walk wades.  These crystal clear lakes are known for their 2 to 3 pound trout over 20 inches.  Our guided fly fishing adventures east of Yellowstone Park offer some of the least crowded fly fishing opportunities in Wyoming throughout the year.

A couple reasons that Eastgate Anglers is the better choice! 

#1. As a single independent guide you will go to the absolute best fishing spot on any given day. Since I don't run a bunch of guides you will never be low man on the totem pole and have to be spread out on area waters. You will fish with the best guide, in the best water suited to your needs and expectations everyday. We will pick you up at your door step and if you are an early riser we can be on the water 2 hours before anyone else even opens their shop. If the fish are biting late we use our discretion as to when it is time to go!

#2. Eastgate Anglers has the absolute best lunches on guided trips in Cody. Since we don't have the overhead of a fly shop we can afford to provide you with much better food on our guided trips. If you have anything special in mind or have special requirements, just ask, and we will be happy to accommodate! All our lunches are made fresh the morning of your trip!

#3. All terminal tackle is included in the trip price!  The amount quoted at the beginning of the trip is what you pay at the end of the day. There is no extra charge for leaders, tippet, or flies. Most of the flies I like to use are my own patterns that just work much better in our area waters than store bought flies! We won't nickel and dime you to death with extras!

#4. Our energy efficient, environmentally friendly vehicles give us a greater range of waters to fish while riding in style. If a local water is blown out we can afford to take you to water that is in good shape and still have a great adventure. We use Honda Elements, touted "The wave of the future." These vehicles are the perfect fishing machine. There is never any extra gas charge!

#5. We use only top notch equipment. Bamboo,  Sage, Winston, and Hardy rods. Sage, Hatch, Hardy, and Tibor reels. We use Avon rafts with padded seats and stand-up platforms for your casting comfort. We use Bucks Bags pontoons and Outcast float tubes for rivers and lakes. We strive to provide you with the safest most comfortable state of the art fly fishing equipment available today. All our gear is always clean and well maintained.

With all these factors in mind explore our website thoroughly and plan for a memorable vacation adventure with Eastgate Anglers in Cody, Wyoming and the Yellowstone area.

This website will guide you through everything you need to know to plan your fly fishing trip.  The guide section will introduce you to the owner/operator of Eastgate Anglers.  Looking at the Rivers & Lakes page will describe the fly fishing waters, the terrain, and for what the rivers are best known.   The type of fly fishing trips available and the cost can be found by clicking on the page named trip rates.  The equipment section will describe what you will need for your trip and explain what Eastgate Anglers will provide.  Eastgate Anglers also provides information on the flies that are currently working and the materials needed to tie your own.  This information is updated quarterly or as needed.  Look for the Flies to Tie pictures and information located on the equipment page.
