Josh was born and raised in Helena, Montana. He is a third generation Missouri River fisherman. Josh started fishing around Helena on the Missouri River with his dad as soon as he could hold a fishing pole. In middle school, whenever it was nice enough (and sometimes when it wasn’t), he’d ride his bike to Prickly Pear Creek and fish for hours. During the summers he would spend as much time as he could with his grandparents at their cabin on Canyon Ferry Lake. He’s always happiest when he’s with his family and friends in the great outdoors, either fishing or hunting. The only thing that can pull him away from the river or the mountains is the chance to be on the baseball field coaching his son and his friends.
Josh started guiding in 2001 and enjoys sharing his years of experience and fishing expertise with friends and clients who share his passion for fishing. He coined the phrase “Land of the Giants” for the Missouri’s most famous section for big trout. As a licensed captain Josh spends most of his time guiding this incredible area helping his anglers fill their goal of finding one of those “once in a lifetime” monsters!
