Joe first picked up a rod on the banks of the ever so mighty Tin Cup Creek outside of Darby Montana. At the age of 12 he was literally hooked, in the back of the head, the ear, and ... morethe face. It’s amazing how a few dozen 6 inch Trout can alter the course of a boys life.

Joe is passionate about catching fish. He has journeyed far and near in his pursuit. He considers fishing to be the delivery device of life’s greatest gifts his friends, family, and memories.

Since his days on Tin Cup Creek Joe has fished as far South as New Zealand and as far North as Alaska. His love of adventure and extensive travel experience make Joe a great resource for our destination packages, our lodge, and any of our clients searching for new journeys.

Joe is a Seattle native where he currently resides with his wife and two young children. He has a house full of girls and cannot wait until they are ready to become part of the family business.

It all started at age nine when his Dad handed him a UPS fresh Cabelas kit rod. From then on, his bike was the Ford and the SF Snoqualmie was the Madison. Resident Coastal Cutthroat ... moretaught him all the basic stream skills anyone just had to know and growing up on the Northwest's native trout couldn't have been any more nostalgic. Every beaver pond and trickle in the Upper Snoqualmie Valley was explored, and a thirst for adventure was ignited. At sixteen he got his ford, and it was game on. He explored the stillwater scene heavily on waters like Lenice, Nunnally, and the famous Seeps and with his old man's boat in tow explored and learned Eastern Washington's reservoirs with Smallmouth in mind. Banks, Potholes, and Lake Roosevelt have been good. Beach fishing sparked an interest and the Puget Sound became and still is one of his favorite fisheries. His favorite trout's anadromous form was the target more often than not, and many wonderful days have been spent on the salt, including a good number on the state's north coast, Neah Bay, targeting migrating Coho and Black Bass on the fly.

Trey has lived a long and illustrious carreer in fly fishing. He is most well known for authoring 'Steelhead Fly Fishing' and 'Blue Water Fly Fishing'. He has been an advisor for countless ... moreequipment manufacturers including but not limited to, Thomas and Thomas, CF Burkheimer and Sarcionne. Aside from his incredible prowess in actually catching fish and then writing about the insight in doing so, Trey is a masterful teacher.

He was part of the 'cutting edge' of Steelhead and Blue Water flyfishing. He was making shooting heads before 'shooting heads' were cool. He has fished ALL OVER the WORLD with too many places to name.

Aside from all of that, Trey is a 'nice guy'. We are fortunate to have him on our crew in an advisory/host capacity and most of all a good friend.
The head guide and owner of the company is, Jack Mitchell. Jack is married to his best friend, Jennifer who can fish along with the best and has a very successfullyReal Estate brokerage ... more- Dryside Property

Father to three beautiful children; Lauren, Kelsey and Justin.

Jack started fishing at the early age of one. The first 16 summers of his life were spent fishing at Neah Bay, with his parents and grandparents as "Kelpers" - catching and selling salmon caught in the Straits of Juan de Fuca and the Pacific Ocean.

Prior to the families years at Neah Bay, Jack's grandfather owned a very well known fishing resort on Camano Island called Camp Lagoon, where he hosted thousands of people on fishing excursions.

During his 16 years at Neah Bay, he spent 4 years as a bait boy on the top two Charters Services. When he wasn't in the boat fishing the ocean he was by foot and/or bike fishing for sea run cutthroat in numerous local creeks on the reservation.

After high school Jack went on to college at Washington State University and was on the 7 year plan for his BA in Sport and Recreation Management. While at college he fished, hunted and played a large amount of Rugby, hence the 7 year plan. Soon after graduation he found himself in Ellensburg and realized that his love of fishing had brought him to the right place.

His fishing trails have led him to Alaska, Canada, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Washington, Oregon and South America. In Chile, he explored many watersheds that until a few years ago had hardly ever been fished. Jack guided in South America for a total of 7 winters. The Evening Hatch started as a small dream in 1988 and since the company has grown from a small red pick-up, an Achilles raft and doing a seasonal 30 trips a year, to a year round operation facilitating over 900 guided river days a year. Our services range from day trips to all inclusive programs featuring our very own post and beam lodges in two locations and our 'Heart and Soul' waters include the Yakima, Klickitat, Methow, Upper Columbia and Olympic Peninsula. He has guided from Southern Chile to Washington and fortunately fished more watersheds then most. His favorite fishing is a greased line for steelhead with a two hander. He started the credited fly fishing class at CWU in 1994. The class is still ongoing and very popular. He has spoke on the topic of fly fishing at sport shows, clubs and seminars

Jack, The Evening Hatch and his guide staff have been featured in numerous media publications over the years. .

The company goal is and always has been to have fun on the water, provide you with an enjoyable fishing experience, teach you some new technique, and create appreciation for the wonderful resource; We thank you for your continued support.
