Our Story

From Humble Beginnings To a Top Outfitter in Jackson Hole

Born in ’82 from a profound affinity for the subtle artistry of fly fishing and the pristine waterways of Jackson Hole, Teton Troutfitters was established by the meistro himself and long time resident of Jackson Hole, Scott Hocking.

The foundation Scott crafted with the intention of sharing stellar fly fishing ventures and showcasing the distinctive angling prospects this region offers, is something current owner and head guide, Ryan Guthrie, has taken to be his own.

The intimate connection we share with Jackson Hole and its myriad of rivers pulsates through every dimension of our company. It is with immense pride that we escort you across the storied expanses of the Snake River, the tranquil flows of the Salt River, the crystal-clear currents of the Green River, and into the secluded enclaves within Yellowstone National Park that few have the luxury to explore.

Our Crew

A Combined 40+ Years of Experience

The lifeblood of Teton Troutfitters is undoubtedly our cadre of veteran guides, whose collective expertise, myriad of certifications, and evocative tales elevate your angling saga. More than just masters of fly fishing, they are enthusiastic mentors eager to impart their knowledge and time-honored techniques.

Ryan Guthrie

Hailing from Savannah, Ga, Ryan never looked back upon arriving in Jackson Hole. Originally moving west to ski, it wasn’t long before Ryan fell in love with the summers. Ryan grew up in the outdoors hunting, fishing, and playing sports, so guiding fly fishing was an obvious choice when trying to find summer employment. Under the mentorship of the original owner of Teton Troutfitters, Scott Hocking, and head guide Mike McCloud, Ryan was able to make a career out of doing what he loves.

Teton Troutfitters is one of the oldest outfitters in the area, and Ryan intends to carry on the principles that founder Scott Hocking instilled in the company over the last three decades.

Fly fishing is such a great way to spend a day, and it is our pleasure to be able to share that with all of our guests that join us on the water.

Nic Parr

Nic is one of the most dedicated anglers you will find. He eats, sleeps, and breathes fly fishing. Originally from Nebraska and Florida, Nic has been passionate about the outdoors his entire life. The only thing that Nic loves more than fly fishing is sharing his love for the sport with others. He is an excellent guide and anyone in the range of novice to expert will find value in their time on the water with Nic.

In the winter you will find Nic teaching skiing at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, and in his off time, Nic enjoys biking, playing soccer, and spending time outside.

Samuel Childress

From St. Louis Missouri comes the most enthusiastic guide we have on the team. Sam’s passion for fly fishing is evident to anyone who has spent time around him. Though he is not afraid to have clients fish with wet flies, Sam is definitely partial to the dry fly as you will find in most pure fly anglers.

Sam also really enjoys studying entomology and learning about the feeding patterns of trout. When not fishing you’ll find Sam playing with his dog Unkus, or being social around downtown Jackson.

Warren Wenzel

The Kentucky-born Warren Wenzel has been in the Jackson area for about 7 years now. Bouncing around the west for a few years chasing snow, Warren finally found a home here in Wyoming.

Warren is an avid outdoorsman spending almost all of his time outside. He loves to hunt, fish, and mountain bike. Warren has been guiding fly fishing for the better part of a decade, but his true love for the sport showed when he founded The Riverbend Project, a nonprofit organization that takes cancer patients and survivors fly fishing.

Warren is a very competent guide, and an absolute blast to be around.

Mike McCloud

Mike has been a long-time guide for Teton Troutfitters. After spending over a decade as a white water rafting guide, McCloud finally switched to the rigid boat to chase trout. In his years as a guide in the Jackson area, Mike has honed his craft as a guide and is an excellent person to spend time with while putting you on some fish.

When not fishing, you can find Mike volunteering as ski patrol at Snow King or cheering on the Penn State Nittany Lions football team.

Rainy Adkins

Meet Rainy, our newest guide at Teton Troutfitters! Fresh from the office to the river, Rainy’s ready to guide you to some epic catches this season.

With her background as a river guide on the Salmon River and studies at Colorado College, she’s no stranger to adventure. When she’s not out fishing, you might catch her cycling or capturing stunning shots with her camera.

We’re thrilled to see her bring her passion and skills to the water.

Happy Holidays from All of Us at Teton Troutfitters!
