"Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime."
At Paradise Ranch, we take great pride in teaching our guests the art of fly fishing and igniting a life-long interest in this wonderful sport.
Our dude ranch fly fishing program offers myriad fishing possibilities: French Creek, teaming with cutthroat and rainbow trout, is literally out your front door, or you can take a cast into one of the nearby trout ponds. Our guides are well-trained, which means you count on good fishing advice and a guide committed to your enjoyment, comfort, and satisfaction.
Guidance and Gear: Everything you Need for a Great Fly-Fishing Experience
During your week at the ranch we offer casting clinics, knot and fly tying classes and teach you how to strike, play and properly catch and release fish on our private trout ponds. After your start-up lessons, you are free to pursue group guided trips, private guided trips or take off on your own to our productive and varied surrounding waters. All fishing gear, with the exception of flies, is provided. Extended trips can be arranged once you get to the ranch for an additional fee.
French Creek Angler's Fly Shop
That's right, Paradise has a full service fly shop right on property for your convenience. The fly shop is the place to sign up for fishing trips, attend a casting clinic, get gear for your next outing or find out what they're "hittin on" from our group of experienced fishing guides!
Fishing licenses are required and may be purchased at the fly shop.
