Kyle’s passion for the outdoors has driven him to commit to making his living as a professional fishing guide.  Kyle has literally grown up on the water, and has been chasing salmon, steelhead, and trout since he was trotting along in diapers.  His passion for fish also led him to earn a Bachelors Degree in Fisheries Resources from the University of Idaho.  Kyle possesses a Master OUPV coast guard license and is fully insured and licensed in Oregon and Washington State.  Kyle guides on the Clearwater, Snake,  and Columbia Rivers for Salmon, Steelhead, Walleye, Bass, and Sturgeon.

Brett Jones:

Brett Jones has had a passion for fishing before he even knew it was called fishing, and now after a ten plus year career as a welder in the oil and gas industry Brett is now chasing his real passion.  When you fish with Brett you will immediately know you are fishing with the real deal.  Brett lives and breaths fish and is one of the most well rounded fisherman that you could find.  Brett is the director of our American Falls operation and whether you spend a day sturgeon fishing or chasing trout in the drift boat it will be an experience you will never forget.

Dani Jones:

Dani Jones is the backbone of our business. Dani and Kyle have been married since 2010. Dani takes care of all bookkeeping, answers customer phone calls, and is also there to reign in Brett and Kyle to make sure most tasks get completed.  Dani is who you will speak to when calling our office.  She is a dedicated mother, and in between raising four beautiful children, and coaching high school and club volleyball she will get you booked on your fishing adventure.  Dani has embraced running the business end of our operation, and the challenges that this lifestyle brings.  Without her support and hard work our dream would not have become a reality!

George (Robby) Engle:

Robby has been a part of the Jones family ever since he and Kyle started fishing and hunting together every chance they got, often heading to the river or rushing out to hunt birds after school.  Robby is now a police officer with the American Falls Police department and is a trusted guide for us in the American Falls area.  You would be hard pressed to find a more dedicated outdoors man than Robby.  Robby graduated from the University of Idaho in 2008 with a Bachelors degree in Wildlife Resources.  Robby is married to his wonderful wife Adriana, and the couple have an amazing little boy named Bridger.  When not on the water fishing you can find Robby in a duck blind or on a mountain top hunting whatever happens to be open.  Robby’s dedication and hard work ethic are apparent to anyone who is lucky enough to spend a day with him.  We are very happy to have him as part of our team!

Joe Weisner (The Sturgeon Surgeon):

Joe Weisner was fishing before he learned to crawl. His passion for fishing has led him all over the country as well as parts of Mexico and into Canada chasing the largest, baddest, and meanest fish he could find – Marlin, tuna, Brown Trout, Tiger Trout, Tiger Muskie, Muskellunge, Northern Pike, and world class Lake Trout, (to name a few).  Within the last 6 years his passion has been focused on targeting GIANT white Sturgeon with hundreds of fish caught, many of which were up to 8ft as well as a few up to 9ft. Tiger muskie have been his passion for nearly a decade and he has caught more trophy tigers than nearly anyone out there including one of the largest verified tigers ever recorded, a 52” goliath!  Not only has Joe had the musky bug for nearly a decade, he has also had a serious addiction to chasing trophy western brown trout.  He was added to the coveted brown baggers list and boasts 4 western brown trout over the 10 lb mark and many more nearly touching that magical mark.   

Ensuring the future of all fisheries is a passion for Joe. The last 10 years he has been heavily involved with building up the Utah Tiger muskie program working directly with the Department of wildlife resources.  He has been instrumental as a member of the Tiger muskie management team, as well as playing a vital role in Utah’s Muskies inc chapter as the vice president of Mountain West Muskie chapter 65. Not only does Joe have a true passion for fishing but he loves helping others get hooked into not only their first fish, but the biggest fish of their lives. Joe’s dream job has been to guide people to the biggest fish of their life since the day he picked up a rod.  Joe is an excellent experienced angler to have as a guide whether you are a seasoned angler or new to fishing.
