Truckee River Fly Fishing Guide – Matt “Gilligan” Koles
Matt began fly fishing the waters of the Eastern Sierra and Tahoe-Truckee Region when he was 13. As a guide, Gilligan brings to the river over 25 years of experience fly fishing and tying flies for Truckee River trout. Gilligan’s Guide Service runs guided fly fishing trips year round on the Truckee River in California and Nevada, West and East of Reno, and on the Little Truckee River, two of the finest trout fisheries in the West. Guided fly fishing trips are also available to Pyramid Lake in Nevada, home of some of the biggest freshwater trout in the world. A veteran guide, Gill loves to guide anglers of all abilities, and has the equipment to outfit first timers for whatever fishing excursion holds their interest. From wade fishing to drift boat fishing Gill has you covered. If you happen to be after the fish of your lifetime Gilligan will show you the rigs and flies and where to find them. Gilligan’s Guide Service offers half-day, full day, and float trips (drift boat). Gilligan is one of a few guides in the country to be an ambassador for Sage Fly Rods. He resides in Hirschdale, California along the banks of the Truckee River and is the authority on catching Truckee River Trout.
