I visited Mt. Shasta for the first time last weekend. I didn't have the time to look at maps to see the beautiful outdoor sites, so I took Jack Trout's tour. Jack really knows all the coolest places to see in the Mt. Shasta area. He took me to some really beautiful spots such as waterfalls, incredible vistas and also showed me some of the best spots to fish. Jack also tells very interesting historical facts and stories about the area and he knows the best restaurants and places to stay. He is super friendly and knows everyone up there. I highly recommend his tour. I can't wait to go on another one soon.

We have found a friend for life in Jack Trout, and his lovely fiance, Carola! We spent 2 days fishing the San Pedro river with Jack in Chile. He completely outfitted our family, secured additional boats and guides to ensure we were all easily accomodated, and prepared a lavish lamb roast to end the day. It was a trip that we won't forget soon.

The weather was not perfect (a little rainy and mild), but everyone got their share of hits, even the novices who Jack personally escorted and tutored. My 12 year old daughter landed a nice rainbow, and the older boys both had good fights with larger fish. We had the river to ourselves and enjoyed a variety of fishing situations, as well as a nice lunch on the river banks. The boats and gear were great. In addition, Jack is a warm and engaging guide who wants you to have fun and catch fish, but without the pressure or slickness you find in other operations.

Make no mistake - this is not your average fishing guide operation. The "lodge" where we were housed is one of Jack and Carola's homes, but is clean, comfortable and they are extremely good hosts (remind them to turn on the hot water before you shower!). Their previous operation in Chaitan was wiped out by a volcano eruption in 2007, so this can be described as somewhat fledgling. But there is nothing fledgling about it once you get in the water and are hammering the fish. And the value is great!

We understand Jack guides trips in Mt. Shasta during the No. American summer, and we would definately sign up for one of those trips. As for fishing in Chile, we would highly recommend it and look forward to enjoying Jack and Carola's company in the future.
