About Yosemite Outfitters
We are passionate about guiding in Yosemite, it's fly fishing, and our surrounding waters! We fish because, the little voice that we hear drives us into the most beautiful fishing locations the Sierra Nevada mountain range has to offer. From beautiful Yosemite National Park, with the Merced, and the mighty Tuolumne rivers; or the seemingly endless Stanislaus river, and the stately Mokulmne river.

David led us on the ultimate combo fly fishing and hiking day through Yosemite park. From the first day coordinating over the phone i could tell how much of an incredible guide he would be. Park rules were complicated during covid and he did everything he could to get us in last minute. In the park, we went to multiple hiking and fishing spots on and off the beaten path. We were new to fly fishing and he made sure to teach us all the ropes, had awesome gear, and an A+ attitude. Could tell how much he loves Yosemite. David’s half day was the highlight of our entire trip, but he was kind enough to give us recommendations for our other two days at the park too! Proud to have met a new friend in David. Can’t wait to hang out again soon!

My son and I went fly fishing with David at around 10,000 feet in Yosemite National Park and it was an amazing experience. The setting was exceptional; the vistas were truly breathtaking and it was relatively quiet - so very peaceful. As a guide David was excellent company, very informative and was very keen to ensure that my son Oliver caught some trout (it was his first fly fishing session) resulting in 21 trout caught in a 3.5 hour session. I would highly recommend using Yosemite outfitters to all.

We fished with David Gregory today in a trip that was designed perfectly for my 5 & 7 yr olds first time on a fly rod. They learned about the wilderness, the fish, bugs, everything. This was more than a fishing trip, it was a live version of a “kids outdoor tv show” focused around the park, fishing, and trout. Each kind of trout we caught...and we caught Brook Trout, Brown trout, & Rainbows trout...were put into a clear container so David could safely teach my boys about the fish. My boys each caught 7-10 fish & my wife caught 2 - a first for each of them on a fly rod. David even found time to teach me (not my first time but still a novice) a few things. Thanks to David Gregory for a great day in Yosemite with my boys and wife catching beautiful fresh water trout. There was a lot of “best day ever” being thrown around by my boys...which is the definition of a successful first fly fishing trip for a father of two young boys

Could not have had a better day - anywhere! From my first phone conversation with David Gregory through the day we spent fishing in the High Sierras, he made every part of our experience "five star." Incredible company. Spectacular scenery. An almost Zen-like education on fly fishing. And somewhere in the magic, the three of us caught 30 fish. I only hope I get another opportunity to spend time with David.

Just got back from a vacation in Yosemite NP. First the entire park is simply beyond description. Plenty to do for those not "living for the tug" - hikes, rafting, photography etc. My son and I engaged YO for 2 half days (one session on a creek and the other on the Merced) and a full day (Tioga Road/Tuolumne area) We rented a home in the Wawona area...The Redwoods in Yosemite has a number of homes available, depending on your needs. It is an hour from the Valley and two hours from Tuolomne Our first half day Stu was our guide, taking us to a spot off of Glacier Point Road. My son and I have limited experience, but Stu was great at helping us fish the smaller creeks for rainbow and brooke, using both drys and nymphs. The second outing David took us to the Merced, where we were fishing for bigger trout. Even though we were in the Park, we never saw another person on the water. Our final full day was spent in the Tuolomne Meadow area - here we fished for both bigger fish in the main river, for smaller fish in the side creeks and mountain pools. Over the course of our outings we landed close to 3 dozen fish from 8-15+ inches. My son had a couple of 20+ on the line and we spotted some true whales in the gin clear water. (A couple of times we felt that giving David a shot would be the only way to bring in these beasts, so we let David show us how...we didn't care who got the fish!) We caught fish in every location and were able to land a few on our own, fishing the South Fork of the Merced, using the techniques we learned the previous day. We saw some spectacular sights - snow covered peaks in June, a herd of mule deer 20 yards away, a swimming black bear, and the biggest trout David has seen in that area - we stalked that whale for a while, but never got him to show interest. David and Stu are outstanding teachers and they know where to go and what to use to catch fish. The best part about the trip - my son is now "hooked" on fly fishing or as David says, "live for the tug". I couldn't recommend David and YO higher - my son and I now consider David and Stu our friends!!
