Truckee River Fly Fishing Guide – Matt “Gilligan” Koles

Matt began fly fishing the waters of the Tahoe-Truckee region when he was a kid. As a guide, Gilligan brings to the river over 35 years of experience fly fishing and tying flies for Truckee River trout. A veteran guide, Gill loves to guide anglers of all abilities, and has the equipment to outfit first timers for whatever fishing excursion holds their interest. From wade fishing to drift boat fishing Gill has you covered. If you happen to be after the fish of your lifetime, Gilligan will show you the rigs and flies and where to find them. Gilligan’s Guide Service offers half-day, full day, and float trips (drift boat). If Gill is already booked and unavailable, he can set you up with one of his partners/ guides, who are tuned in on the Truckee River. Gilligan is one of a few guides in the country to be an ambassador for Sage Fly Rods. He resides in Hirschdale, California along the banks of the Truckee River, and is the authority on catching Truckee River Trout.
