Whether your a seasoned fly fishermen working on perfecting your cast or just learning, let your exploration of the Eastern Sierra trout fishing start here
A Bit About Me
My name is Gerritt Wormhoudt. I grew up in the Eastern Sierra where my passion for fishing and the outdoors originated at a young age. This passion progressed into my life-long pursuit of working and thriving in the fishing industry. I established the Eastern Sierra Anglers Guide Service to bring those same experienced and passionate fly fishing guides together to provide an unrivaled experience for their clients.
I have over 24 years of fishing experience and have spent countless days fly fishing the Upper Owen's River, Hot Creek, Crowley, and the East Walker. My favorite has always been dry flying for Golden Trout in the remote areas of the high country where very few venture or swinging large streamers for Chinooks in Alaska during the downtime of commercial fishing.
I graduated from the University of Nevada, Reno with a degree in Wildlife Ecology and Conservation. It was during this time that I also spent a lot of time fishing Pyramid Lake chasing giants.
When I am not on the water fishing, you can find me making turns on the mountain, backpacking the backcountry, hunting public lands, or hacking golf balls on the links. My greatest joy from guiding is the ability to teach others what I have loved doing the majority of my life and getting clients on fish, whether it’s their first fish or biggest fish. You can’t beat that pure excitement!
