Still Water Fly Fishing

for Anglers with Disabilities


If you can sit and use your upper body, you are not disabled when it comes to still water fly fishing. We teach and guide our disabled clients to catch Crowley Lake’s trophy trout on a fly rod. Crowley Lake, located just 10 minutes south of Mammoth Lakes, is a world-class still water fishery with Rainbow, Brown and Cutthroat Trout from 12 to 27 inches.

We began offering guided trips to clients with disabilities after taking out many disabled vets with no fly fishing experience, as part of the “Wounded Warriors” program over the past few years. These guys and girls ate it up and we think you will too.

You will fish from a 23 ft center-console boat, which can accommodate up to three anglers. The boat is designed to go into very shallow water, translated it has a beam (width) of almost 10 feet and is super stable and has lots of deck space. You can fish from a wheelchair or from comfortable seats on the bow, stern and or in front of the center console.

The five-hour guided trip is all-inclusive with rods, reels and all tackle and flies provided at no extra charge. The boat is stocked with plenty of complementary water and soft drinks to keep your strength up after reeling in a bunch of “Crowley’s Finest”.

Our regular half-day rates ($310 for two anglers, $370 for three anglers) apply for those of you that have fly fishing experience and we also offer a “First-Time Beginner’s Special” with a $50 discount off the regular rates. The beginner’s package starts out with casting instruction and instruction in the basics of fly fishing before heading out and catching some fish.

You can call the shop (760) 934-2517 to book your trip and your guide will call you back to discuss any special needs you have. The day of the trip we will meet at the Crowley Lake Marina. All you will need is a fishing license, which you can pick up at the Troutfitter or at the Crowley Lake Marina Store the day of your trip.
