Recommended Equipment Check List


FLY RODS – 4wt to 7wt rods are recommended. A 5wt or 6wt rod is the most popular rod used on the Green. Bring two if possible, one for dry flies and one for nymphing or throwing streamers. A sink-tip line could come in handy for throwing streamers but not necessary.

SPIN RODS – A 6ft. light tackle rod with 4–6 lbs. test is the preferred rod of most spin casters. GRD usually has an ample supply of White River Zig Jigs available for use by its clientele (these can be very productive). All other lures are the responsibility of the client. Jigs and Rapalas are what we recommend.

  • GRD and its guides have a handful of rods available use at no charge. If you need to borrow one, please check with us prior to your trip to make sure one is available.
WADERS – Gore-Tex or neoprene. Recommended for the spring, fall and winter months. Please NO studded boots.
RAIN JACKET – A must have for every trip we do. Even in the summer months, the weather changes frequently.
RAIN PANTS – An alternative to waders during the summer months and for our overnight trips.
FLEECE JACKET – A handy addition to have for layering comfort.
BEER, WINE or SPECIAL BEVERAGE –We are unable to supply these. Every boat will have a cooler with water, sodas and ice.
NEW LEADERS – We ask that you bring 1 or 2 new leaders for your trip 7 1/2 – 9ft. 5X is preferred. 4X or 6X will also work. Your guide will supply ALL the other necessities (flies, tippet, indicators, etc.).
  • During the summer months (June – August) our clients typically wear a breathable style shirt and pants or shorts and T-shirts. Sandals (river style) or tennis shoes (they might get wet) are the preferred footwear. Wading boots with neoprene or wool socks is also a good way to go. Again, please no studded boots.
Additional Items that could make your trip more comfortable
FLEECE or WOOL FINGERLESS GLOVES/HAT – A back-up pair of gloves (any style) is nice to have, especially on overnight trips
LONG UNDERWEAR – Upper and Lower
INSECT REPELLENT – Generally not needed except on the lower end of the river and only in mid-summer months. Most guides have some in their boats.
Overnight Camping Trips
All overnight trips come with a cook/supply boat and guide. Their job is to take care of everything at camp.
ALL OF THE ABOVE – Please include all the items listed above.
SLEEPING BAG – Big, bulky bags are not recommended as space is somewhat limited. Most nights do not get below 40 degrees, usually in the 50's.
CHANGE OF CLOTHES/SHOES – Après fish attire recommended. Hawaiian shirts, etc.
EXTRA CLOTHING – Mostly for the night time. A heavier weight jacket, pants or polar fleece.
FLASHLIGHT – Headlamps or otherwise. One for each person is highly recommended.
SMALL DRY OR GYM BAG – Not necessary but great to keep all your stuff in one place.
PERSONAL ITEMS and TOILETRIES – Don't forget the big and little towel. They are nice when you need them.
PERSONAL FISHING VEST/WAIST PACK – For use after you reach camp and are fishing during the morning and evening hours. This will not be necessary during the day as your guide will have everything you need.
