Eastern Trophies run float trips year round for Trout and Smallmouth Bass. We have 20 different float options we can do for Trout and/or Smallmouth Bass. We take 1 or 2 anglers per trip. We can accommodate larger groups also. Lunch is included for all float trips. For our Extended Day Floats we provide boat lunch and dinner on the river. We cater to what you like, so your choice of food and beverages is endless.
Each trips is different so meet times with vary. Most of the time we meet clients between 7am-8am. and we float until 5 or 6. For our Extended Day Float trips, we meet before dawn and fish until 8-9pm. We have hotel recommendations for you for the different locations we float.
For both the trout and smallmouth floats we recommend 9 foot, 6-7 weight rods. We throw some large flies, but more importantly we have larger fish on these trips and having a larger rods helps set the hook easier. All flies are included on our trips.You are welcome to use our equipment on floats too. We fish R.L. Winston Rods. For leaders, we use 3x-0x leaders. Leaders are not included on your float so its a good idea to get a few.
