Fish in the river


About Bert Ouellette

As an Orvis-endorse fly fishing guide, my main goal is to create an unforgettable fishing experience for every client.  Whether you’re just starting out or a seasoned angler, I aim to achieve that goal by not only guiding you on the water but by also teaching you so you leave with a better and broader understanding of this beautiful sport. First and foremost, I want to make sure you have fun on the water!

I am a drift boat guide with 20 years of experience fishing from a 16’ ClackaCraft drift boat. I fish with the newest technology in fly rods, including custom-tied leaders and flies. If you want to have a great time out on the Housatonic, give me a call. I provide the absolute best river tours and fly fishing lessons CT has to offer.  I am also a licensed Guide in New York and Pennsylvania. I offer trips on the West Branch, East Branch and Main Stem of the Delaware River.

I also volunteer my river fishing guide service to “Rivers Of Recovery”, an organization that provides rehabilitation to physically and psychologically injured U.S. Combat Veterans using innovative, outdoor-based therapies and pioneering research.
