What to Bring


Winter/Spring – Fishing in the winter and early spring presents challenges with staying warm. Layered clothing can be effective in keeping comfortable when fishing. You should error on the side of bringing too much clothing rather than not enough and the boats have plenty of storage for additional items. Considering the weather can change quickly, it’s better to have it and not need it than not have it. We suggest:

  • Fleece pants, sweet pants or other pants with insulating properties for under the waders.
  • Loose fitting wading boots to keep the feet warm.
  • Socks – Thick pair on top of a thin pair.
  • Insulating under layers.
  • A shell layer over an insulating jacket.
  • A rain jacket
  • Hat and Polarized sunglasses

In the summer, with the warm weather, there is no need for waders and boots to stay dry.  In fact, it’s very enjoyable to get in the water.  Summer time clothing is simple and includes:

  • Sandals with an ankle strap, sneakers or other shoes you don’t mind getting wet
  • Shorts, Capri pants or quick dry pants
  • T-shirt, or long sleeve shirt (depending on your preference for sun exposure)
  • A light jacket and rain jacket
  • Hat and Polarized sunglasses

All the boats have lots of dry storage room, so it’s okay to bring extra clothing, cameras, etc.
