Garrett Blackburn learned to catch trout at a young age on the waters near Saratoga, Wyoming and Arkansas’s White River. An Oklahoma native, he learned to target bass, panfish and anything else that would eat a fly. In 2003 he moved to Montana to attend college at the University of Montana and began his guiding career in the Bristol Bay region of Alaska at Bristol Bay Lodge. After graduating, he began guiding year round on the rivers of Southwest Montana in the summers and Chilean Patagonia during the winters. For 7 winters he guided anglers in Chile at Martin Pescador Lodge. Today Garrett spends most of his time on the water guiding anglers on the Madison river but loves to explore fisheries all over Montana. Garrett is a USCG licensed captain which allows him to guide under power. He is versatile on Montana and Yellowstone National Park waters for the jet boat, drift boat, and walk wade trips. Garrett lives in Ennis, Montana. He is certified in CPR and first aid.
