Nick Altringer | Trout & Smallmouth Bass Driftboat Guide
Every since I first set my eyes on a fly fishing magazine in a Montana gas station at the age of twelve I have been hooked. Twenty or more years later I hope to share my passion and experience with you. Trout fishing in the Kinni Creek area is a very rewarding and enjoyable experience everyone should take an opportunity to enjoy. I have been working with Paige and Kinni Creek Lodge and Outfitters for over six years. Recently, I have begun working on getting a master's degree in my other passion teaching in particular middle school science. Youth are very important to our future and especially to the sport of fishing and stewardship of our land and water. I have been teaching youth how to fly fish for over ten years.
When I am not fishing for trout, I can be found fishing for smallmouth bass during summer and into the fall on my Clackacraft Headhunter Skiff Drift Boat. Like many guides I enjoy tying fly patterns that fit a particular niche I want to fill beyond the commercial ties. I also enjoy fishing for northern pike, muskie, carp, panfish, and largemouth bass.
My goal on every guide trip is to give every client the best chance to achieve their goals and have fun while doing it. It would be my pleasure to share a day on the water with you.
