Cancelation and Reschedule Policy

We understand that a guide trip may need to be canceled or rescheduled for a variety of reasons. As an outfitter, we will always try to be as accommodating as possible; however, there are times when we may charge for the booking deposit or the entire amount of a trip, in the event of a cancelation or reschedule. This depends solely on how far in advance the trip is canceled or rescheduled.*

In the event that we are unable to refund the deposit amount due to a cancelation/reschedule, please understand that it is done in consideration of the guide assigned to the trip.  If the guide trip is canceled more than 14 days prior to the trip date, a full refund of the initial deposit will be issued.

  • Cancelations made 15 or more days in advance of the trip will receive a full refund of the trip deposit.
  • Cancelations made within 14 days of the scheduled trip will be charged a cancelation fee in the amount of the original trip deposit.

Weather Cancelation

Guide trips will be canceled or postponed due to weather at the guide’s discretion only.  This will only happen if the weather conditions pose a safety hazard or the selected river proves unfishable.  In which case, a trip cancelation or reschedule is at no cost to the client. In the event the postponed trip cannot be rescheduled, we will refund the original deposit amount. If the client chooses to cancel the trip due to conditions, the standard cancelation policies (listed above) apply.
