Bed 'n' Flycast Packages



The Wildcat and Ellis Rivers border RiverWood - literally a short walk from our door steps - with some of the finest trout fishing around.  Come and explore by yourself or go on a guided tour.  We offer a variety of fly fishing packages that cater to beginners, intermediates, and experts.


We practice catch and release angling on all of our trips, but we do promise to release pictures of your catch - and we’ll e-mail them to you after your trip.





Fly Fishing 101


Fly Fishing is part art form, part sport, and all fun! There's nothing like stealthily wading up a crystal clear stream looking for the spots where trout lay in wait.  You find a likely riffle, execute the perfect cast, and watch your fly alight on the water. The fly drifts downstream, and then vanishes in a sudden swirl. You set the hook and a shimmering trout leaps into the air.   Now you are the one who is hooked!


Let local guide and instructor, Nathan Hill, teach you how to execute that perfect cast, and then show you where to find, and how to catch brook and rainbow trout.


The day includes one to two hours of casting instruction and two to three hours of fly fishing. Equipment is included.


Fly Tie & Fish


For more experienced anglers, let Nate show you how to tie the “fly of the day” for fishing our Wildcat and Ellis River pools. Nate will choose the “fly of the day” based on current conditions and hatches.  Along with teaching you how to tie, he will explain entomology, strategies and techniques that go along with the pattern.


You get a two hour lesson with Nate, a quick lunch, and then it's down to the River to test your new flies.




“Fly Fishing is for girls!”


Think fly fishing is a “boys only" club? Think again, women are the fastest growing demographic of fly fishers, and many are now top fishing guides!


Come solo or bring a friend, and let Nate give you expert casting lessons at the Village pond.  Once you've mastered the basics, he'll show you how to tempt the trout in the Ellis and Wildcat rivers. 


To complete the day’s activities we can arrange a relaxing massage with Shana at Moondance Massage


Fly Fish the Valley


Go on a half or full day wading excursion to the best fishing spots in the valley. Fish for big brown trout in the Saco by morning and switch over to chasing aggressive Ellis River rainbow trout in the afternoon. Or start the day chasing wild brook trout on one of our mountain streams, and finish the evening stalking wary trout rising to dry flies. Whatever the day, Nate will take you to where the fish are biting best.


Looking For a True Adventure?


                                       Drift the Andro!


Let Nate take you on a half or full day long float expedition up to the Androscoggin River in search of wild rainbow trout, brown trout and landlocked salmon.  Nate guides out of an outcast Pac 1300, this modified whitewater raft allows you to fish in safety and comfort with access to the biggest fish in the river. Fishing the Andro is a wilderness experience. You may see bald eagles, moose, otters, deer and even black bears, along with the trout and salmon.



Here's What You'll Get !


All packages include a two night stay in a queen bedroom with private bath (we also have suites with kitchenettes available), all fly tying materials and tools, and fishing gear if you need it.  A NH fishing license will be required for all but the fly tying classes.  These can be purchased on-line at New Hampshire Fish and Game Department

About Nate


Owner of Hill Country Guide Service, Nate began fishing the White Mountains when he was seven years old, and  spent his adolescence improving his fly fishing skills on the Ellis and Saco Rivers.


He attended UNH and during the summer between his junior and senior years, he interned with the Federation of Fly Fishers in Livingston, Montana. There, he fine tuned casting, tying, and fishing skills, but more importantly, learned how to instruct others.

Upon returning to New Hampshire he got his guide's license and has spent the last six years guiding on the Ellis, Saco and Androscoggin rivers, spending all of his free time re-learning the waters he grew up on, and finding new places to explore.  He is now guiding full time from April through October. Nate is also author of the Ellis River Chapter in the soon to be published book: 50 Best Places: Fly Fishing the Northeast, learn more at www.stoneflypress.com and www.facebook.com
