Welcome to Tim Hutchins' Yosemite Fly fishing Tour Guide

I am a full time independent fly fishing guide and certified fly casting instructor with 17 seasons of experience guiding in Yosemite National Park and the surrounding waters.  With thousands of days guiding and teaching no one has more experience or has more fun sharing the sport than I do.  If your a first time caster or a seasoned fly fisher all my trips are custom tailored to your skill level and preferences. As the senior fly fishing permit holder in the Sierra and Stanislaus National Forests and in National Yosemite National Park my years of local knowledge make sure your time on the water will be successful, memorable, and most of all fun.

Yosemite National park is a vast area of more than 700,000 acres which contains hundreds of lakes and the watersheds of two large rivers the Merced and the Tuolumne. The majority of park visitors don’t realize just how large the park is and that there is far more to the park than the busy 8 square miles of Yosemite Valley. If you’re a fly fisher with a sense of adventure and a little time there are wild trout in more than 400 miles of untouched streams and rivers. Just an hours walk can be all it takes to leave the crowds behind and enjoy unspoiled fishing where the only footprints are your own. With year round fishing and four species of trout the park provides diverse fly fishing opportunities for the adventurous angler. All fishing is with barbless hooks and is catch & release.

Tim Hutchins is a licensed, bonded, insured, full time independent guide who holds permits to legally operate in both the Sierra and Stanislaus National Forests and Yosemite National Park.
