Cody, WY 82414
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 4-5 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 we 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 prefer to leave very early to ensure we get to the best waters first. 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. 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. Our loaner rods are all R. L. Winston and Sage. 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 plan for a memorable vacation adventure with Eastgate Anglers in Cody, Wyoming and the Yellowstone area.
Scott Sweebe, the owner and operator of Eastgate Anglers, has been fishing all his life. Since 1999, Scott has fished approximately 300 days a year in and around the Cody area and knows hundreds of miles of rivers and lakes in Northwest Wyoming.
Scott spent the early part of his adult life on the East Coast bass fishing, fishing North GA trout streams and fishing off the coast of Florida. When he realized that he could fly fish year round in Wyoming and catch large trout, he moved west. Probably no one in Cody spends as much actual time on the water studying the hatches and mastering the techniques involved in catching the fish in this area as Scott does. He began his own guide service in 2002 and since then his motto, and the motto of many of his customers has been FLY FISHING IS EASY!
Scott enjoys sharing what he knows and says he "likes watching other people catch fish as much as catching them him self. He is patient, kind, and honest, which are excellent qualities to have when teaching new anglers. Additionally, he is just plain fun! In 2001 and 2002 he was requested to teach at the Powell Recreational Department's fly fishing round-up event and has been working with the local kids ever since.
When he isn't fishing Scott is tying flies and making up his own patterns. The "Bah Behr" has become a favorite for many of the locals here in Cody. Scott's wife, Dawn, is also an avid fly fisherwoman. They swap lies for the biggest or most fish caught in a day. Dawn encourages women to give fly fishing a try saying it is relaxing and a wonderful way to spend time with family and friends.
