Jesse Dancer’s life long passion for fly fishing started on the banks of the McKenzie river in Oregon where he spent many hours chasing trout and steelhead. While born and raised in Oregon, this passion led him to start guiding anglers in Alaska. Jesse dedicated 6 years to developing his guide skills in Alaska where his hard work and leadership didn’t go unnoticed as he left the lodge as head guide. Alaska was just a stepping stone for Jesse as Montana had always been on his personal and professional radar. After spending several partial years in Montana Jesse made his full time move to Livingston. The past several years have proven Jesse to be an exceptional guide and we are proud to welcome him as our newest core guide.
When Jesse isn’t guiding or fishing the many great rivers in Montana you (can try to) find him on a horse looking for elk, or on the coastal waters of Oregon swinging flies in search of steelhead.
