We offer guided trips on the West Branch of the Ausable River and we pride ourselves on having intimate knowledge on a host of other area rivers including the Chateaugay, Chazy, Salmon, St. Regis, Raquette and Saranac River that see less pressure and offer excellent opportunities for fishing. At Wiley's Flies we believe in creating the best experience possible for the angler, by utilizing the wide array of fishing opportunities available we can make your day one to remember. Whether you are looking for an afternoon out on the renown West Branch of the Ausable River or searching for solitude in one of our fantastic little Brookie waters or perhaps you are after three foot long predators like Pike and Musky? We will tailor a trip just for you. In addition to stream fishing for trout species we also offer guided Landlock, Bass, Pike and Musky fishing trips via wade angling, river floats or pontoon trips up the Saranac chain of lakes for up to 10 people. Drifting the river in one of our fishing rafts gives you the opportunity to fish water that no one else can reach and offers a more secluded adventure for those seeking to avoid the crowds. We are the first outfitter to offer these float trips in the northern Adirondacks and have decades of rowing experience. Float trip availability for different species and locations depends on river flows and weather conditions. Ever wanted to learn how to effectively fish lakes and ponds? We also offer first hand instruction on area lakes and ponds on how to locate prime fishing areas and what flies and methods are most effective. Our number one goal is to keep you safe while offering you an experience you will not forget, we want to ensure you enjoy your trip so let us know if you have any special food or other requests to fulfill your expectations.
Wiley's Flies is fully insured and all of our guides are licensed New York State Guides.
ALL RATES ARE FOR UP TO (2) ANGLERS/BOAT Rates starting at $325.00
Most of our trips are in raft style drift boats as access to these waters is very limited. Being able to stand up and cast makes hitting the targets easier, which translates into catching more fish! Of course they also have seats when you want to sit and take a break, you know because you have been catching too many fish! In all seriousness we do catch more fish with the aid of our rafts and of course our goal is to catch more and bigger but at the end of the day these float trips allow us to cover miles of river and get away from the crowds. If you haven't had the chance to experience this style of fishing take the opportunity to do so and you will forever be a fan of float trips. What other way can you cover every inch of a seven mile stretch and fish water that no one else can? **All gear is provided in the price and we offer spin or fly fishing on these trips. We have trips ranging in length from our "shorty" 3 hours, our most popular 5 to 6 hours and full day 8 hours depending on the anglers desired length. Full day trips include streamside lunch, drinks and snacks. All other floats include snacks and drinks. ***Since we use various river systems for these trips in the area we are able to select the best one for the time of year and water conditions making it the best trip possible. There is a $25.00 fuel surcharge if the guides must travel over 25 miles one way. Most often it is not necessary to travel further but sometimes desired by the client to see new water after they have floated with us for years.
