Terry Collier has been guiding in the Flaming Gorge area for 31 years, and before that he was a white water guide in the Grand Canyon and the lower Green through his late teenage years until switching to a fly-fishing Outfit he named Old Moe on the Green River. Now he has added Flaming Gorge Fishing Co. to his repertoire and for the last 10 years has been guiding for Lake trout on the fabulous Flaming Gorge Reservoir. The other two guides working under this permit, Jim Cohen, and Mike Sargent have equally impressive guiding credentials backed by a lifetime of fishing.
Imagine yourself floating in a Jet boat or Flats boats,
drifting among towering cliffs over thousand feet high, and on
water that could be over 300 feet deep. The canyon walls in most
areas are straight cliffs above the water level. The guide has
you perched over a shelf somewhere between 60 feet and 120 feet.
You've dropped a weighted Jig to the bottom and working
it up and letting it fall back, when the line goes slack at
first you are startled by the slack line, then instantly a
response makes you set the hook. initially It feels as
though the hook
has set into a car body which has abruptly been put in gear as
your line rips off the reel.
This is one of the large Lake Trout (Mackinaw) and you better get set for a heavy battle, akin to a weight training session.
