Wear non-cotton quick-drying materials and bring layers to wear under the waders. If wading, you will be standing in very cold water. The waders have a neoprene sock which fits inside a wading boot. You will initially feel that cold water until your body heat warms up the neo-prene, like a wetsuit for your feet. Bring layers as temperatures can vary up to 50 degrees in a day. A hat and rain jacket are recommended.

All gear, tackle and lunches (for full day trips) are included. Additional costs are for license, tackle that you choose, and gratuity for the guide. Gratuities are generally in the range of 20% + of trip cost but it should be based on your experience with your guide.
