Fly Fishing Glacier National Park
Russ Schnieder has worked as a fishing, hiking and rafting guide in Glacier for more than 25 years. He will be sharing his intimate knowledge of this fly fisher’s paradise. Join us to learn about the park and how to enjoy all it offers to fly fishers.
When Russ is not fishing, floating, hiking, writing or biking he is probably crunching numbers on an outside consulting project or doing some community thing. Russ is known for his custom Rapid Robert style wooden drift boat and his appreciation for native park fisheries. As Russ says “The key to life is to build communities around things you care about - whether that is your family or your hobby or your cause.” What's his favorite place? He won't disclose all his secret spots…but it's definitely in the park.
