My son in law and I took Matt's beginners Cast N' Catch class and really had a great time with him and his associate Finn. Both were very helpful, great tips and information and very patient. I highly recommend his class and hopefully get to spend some more time with him and Finn the next time we are in Truckee. Hopefully, we can get a chance to fish with him on the rivers.

My group (two boys and their godfather) took the Cast n' Catch class on a very windy afternoon. Matt and Fin were fabulous. Very patient and very knowledgeable. I would recommend this class to all levels of fly fishermen. The day fishing on the Little Truckee was everything advertised. Matt and Dan were simply fantastic. The enthusiasm by both was awesome. They truly cared about our experience and worked very hard to make our day of fishing unforgettable. It worked. I would highly recommend Matt Heron Fly Fishing to anyone who wants to catch fish, learn from the best, and enjoy a day you will remember forever. Hats off to Matt and his crew. We will be back for sure.

Great day on the Truckee River. Matt Heron is in exceptional fly fishing guide. He clearly knows the river and provided a great fishing experience. Very attentive. Socially gifted. Highly professional. I would recommend fishing with him anytime anywhere.

I wanted to take my dad fly fishing for his bday but had no clue where to start. I was so lucky to find Matt Heron Fly Fishing. My dad is an experienced fly fisherman but just didn’t know the area very well and I have never fly fished before in my life. Our guide Dan was amazing! He was so knowledgeable and a great teacher. My dad was extremely happy with all the information and knowledge about the area and Dan even showed him some new techniques. And he had me casting really well by then end. We both caught beautiful trout throughout the whole day. Highly recommend this place for lessons or guided fly fishing!
