"Guides were top notch! Equipment was excellent and the fishing was amazing. Guides were knowledgeable, professional and a lot of fun. They took us on an offsite fishing trip and cooked us lunch at a pristine location. Would definitely recommend."

"My sons and I had the great pleasure of spending several outings with the guide staff at Brush Creek during our family stay. We fished the North Platte, French Creek, Brush Creek and several of the ranch ponds with our wives and grandchildren . The guides we fished with, Hayden , Clayton Adam And Matt were absolutely top rank by any measure- personal skill, teaching skill, attentiveness , friendliness and patience. Tho the boys and I are reasonably skilled and experienced our wives and little kids are novice and each of our guides where expert at keeping on eye on us as we wandered about and testing the water and hatches for patten selection while providing great attention and teaching down to my 4 yr old grandson. When we wanted to head off on our own to fish the delightful ranch stream Brush Creek they headed us to the best water and outfitted us with great 8' 3 wt rods with wonderful Orvis reels , and a fully loaded necklace as well as a nice selection of dries. We fooled some beautiful browns one pushing 20" as well as the most beautifully colored 12" brookie. Surely a top notch outfit"

"My family and I just returned from a trip to Brush Creek Ranch. We fished with 5 of the 7 staff members a t Brush Creek. My entire family fished (My wife and I and our children - 28, 26 & 10). All staff members were patient, experienced and, most importantly, quite generous with their knowledge. I could go on and on but suffice it to say this operation was top notch."

"Being somewhat of a city boy, I was tentative in my first trip to Brush Creek but shortly after stepping foot on this breathtaking resort any anxiety I had felt beforehand instantly dissipated. From the incredibly friendly staff who showed patience with a outdoors novice such as myself to the endless amenities included in the all inclusive rates Brush Creek provided an experience I will never forget!"

Addictive,
July 14, 2015
By: MartyH
from Phoenix
"I now understand the powerful allure that people who fly fish regularly talk about. First off, Jon our guide knew a tremendous amount about the ecosystem, the trout behavior and Brush Creek in general on top of being very personable, a trait that runs through the staff at BCR. Then there was the creek itself which was beautiful on a day where fluffy clouds made the sunlight on the water appear and disappear. Jon helped my nephew and I, both fly fishing rookies, to work the creek and pick up some fishing jargon in the process. We caught eight or so fish with two being in the 12" range. It's incredible to see the fish come out of the water, they are beautiful, and when they're released, they disappear in an instant. It was a great experience and a revelation."

"All of the guides were wonderful, but there is one experience in particular I will never forget... I would have never thought in a million years I would be able to catch a fish the first time trying fly fishing. My guide Dan was able to teach me the basics while in the water and within minutes I was casting and within a couple hours I caught a Brook Trout! Such amazing attention to detail and great ratio (2 students to one guide) made for an easy learning environment. It was also awesome to hear about Dan's interesting travel stories. Counting the days till I get back to Brush Creek!"

"It's hard to imagine how a lodge and guide service could do a better job. We hit the water with guide Hayden twice during our stay at Brush Creek Ranch. His river knowledge was undeniable, he was a wonderful teacher, his excitement was contagious and I came out a better fisherman having spent time with him. It was the true Wyoming fly fishing experience anyone could hope for; picturesque, wild, peaceful and unforgettable. Dozens of hard fighting wild browns to net and a few beautiful brookies as well. I can't wait to get back!"

"BCR was an incredible experience - everything was top notch. The service from every single ranch employee was unmatched. The accommodations were the perfect mix of beautiful and rustic (not that I spent much time in my room). The activity guides are knowledgeable and friendly (shout out to Hayden, who helped me catch four fish my fish time fly fishing and Toby for taking us on an exhilarating ATV ranch tour!). It was heartbreaking to leave on our departure day, and I can't wait to go back."

"Thanks to Brush Creek Ranch and specifically Hayden for taking myself and a colleague on an adventurous, beautiful stretch of water. Fish were taking the dry dropper left and right. Landed a beautiful selection of Browns. Hayden is extremely personable and made the experience over the top. It was amazing the tips and techniques shared to me. I learned to check nymph. Bar none, best experience ever."

"We spent the last week at BCR and plan on coming back next year. Jon and Adam were especially awesome and taught us so much about fly fishing. My husband, two teenage sons, and I enjoyed first-rate service and a variety of beautiful spots to fish. The guides were super patient, knowledgeable, and fun to be around. I honestly felt embarrassed about how much I was being spoiled. Every tangle and every catch was taken care of immediately with lots of kudos & encouragement. My husband and I have never caught so many fish. Will definitely recommend to our friends and family."

"I fished 4 times in 7 days. The water and staff are top notch in every respect. As an avid fisherman, and novice with a fly rod I felt at ease with the knowledge of our guides. They were able to teach, in a way that was informative and encouraging. There is a healthy sense of competition and camaraderie among the guides that drives them to help you be more successfull than your previous outing. I left an improved angler with a better education in tackle, bugs, casting technique, retrieval, and the fish themselves. In addition to the amazing fishing, and guides there is the beauty of the river itself. It would have been a great expericence even if the bit was not on this trip. "I'll be back"."
