Fishing Lease


Llamas Leases for Fishing Trips

Use llamas to help pack your gear on your next wilderness fishing trip! We offer leases to individuals or groups who want to do a backcountry fishing excursion. While we (Redwood Llamas) do not officially guide fishing trips, we have a partnership with a tried and true local guide service company called Duranglers. If you’re interested in booking a guided fishing expedition, please contact us and we’ll help set up the arrangements!

Why Use Llamas for your trip?

Given their docile nature, athleticism, and sure footedness around rivers/creeks, llamas make the perfect companion for fishermen. Llamas are great for carrying the bulk of your camping and fishing gear while you are hiking to and from the stream or lake that you’re fishing.  

Our goal is to provide you with a memorable, safe vacation, free of stress, and to expose you to what we feel are the best mountains in the Rocky Mountain Region.


Fishing Lease Details

Before you depart on your lease adventure we require guests to complete a brief 2 part orientation course going over the basics of packing with llamas. The first step is getting the panniers to pack your personal gear in. Clients will do a brief meet and greet at Redwood Llamas HQ in Silverton and pick up the panniers the day/night before the trip. The second part is getting acclimated with the llamas at the departure trailhead and includes; how to halter lead ropes (attach & detach), saddle and unmount llamas, hanging of panniers, using the tie out stakes, water buckets, grazing instructions/habits, weight load distribution, and general rules of the trail. For a complete outline view our full orientation outline here. For certain situations we can perform both parts of the orientation course at trailhead or at RL HQ if logistics are cumbersome — extra fee may apply depending on circumstances. 

Each individual llama comes with its own halter, lead rope, saddle and pad, 2 panniers, tie-out stakes, and water bucket. Our llamas are extremely well trained prior to being promoted for trail work — they’re protective, cerebral, and great trail companions.
