Chris, or Grizz as some call him, has been exploring and fishing the diverse waters of the greater Yellowstone area for over 30 years. With an adventurous spirit, he enjoys searching out that new stretch of water and less pressured trout. After a five year stint managing the famous TroutHunter flyshop, he finally made the jump to full time guiding in the spring of 2016. Whether your desire is the more famous stretches of the Henry’s Fork, or branching out to discover lesser known gems in the area, Chris provides fantastic fishing coupled with a fun and comprehensive learning experience. Believing strongly in the protection of a resource which provides him so much joy, he conducts himself on a foundation of conservation, tradition and strong principles of angler ethic. Never taking for granted the beauty of wild trout or their habitat. Chris, his wife Kristen and their son Huntley reside year around near the banks of the Henry’s Fork. When time permits, he enjoys spey casting for steelhead and local trout. Chris is a proud member of the CF Burkheimer promotional staff and offers two handed casting instruction and “Trout Spey” day trips.
