Our River Guides

Ken Mihal

Ken grew up fishing the small rivers and streams of Pennsylvania. Originally from Pittsburgh, he moved here in the early 90’s. His best friend shared his love of fly fishing with him and the rest is history! When Ken’s not with clients, he’s fishing the waters of Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, Idaho or chasing Bones in the Bahamas. He’s dedicated to making your experience tailored to you and an enjoyable one!

Jen Mihal

I was born and raised in Texas. Twin to a brother, I was constantly outdoors exploring, fishing and hunting. I moved to Utah in my late teens (early 90’s), met Ken 4 years later, picked up my first fly rod and never looked back! I have spent countless days on these local rivers and all vacations/days off in Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, Idaho and the Bahamas fly fishing! Having been diagnosed with a brain tumor and double vision in 2012; brain surgery and 30 rounds of brain radiation in 2016, has all taught me not to take ANYTHING for granted and to not sweat the small stuff! Trust me, LIFE IS TOO SHORT! My goal is to laugh, love and LIVE a fish filled, amazing life and I would LOVE to share that with you! I will work my hardest to get you into fish and teach you all that you want to learn (or not!).. either way!

Richie Heminway

Born and Raised in the Wasatch mountains and surrounding states, Richie has been chasing trout with a fly rod since he was a boy. Fly Fishing has taken him around the world, from the flats of the Bahamas and Mexico to Alaska, Russia and the Northwest. But at the end of the day, Utah is home. “It is a great place to live and a great jumping point to the next adventure.” With a passion for the rivers and outdoors, being a fly fishing guide was a natural step in showing others the beauty of Utah and amazing fishing it has to offer.

Max Akey

Max began his love for fly fishing while growing up in Vermont. His enthusiasm for the rivers/streams extended into the southern part of the state such as the Battenkill and Metttawee, along with local water closer to the Burlington area, eventually leading to his (as of now) favorite fly fishing adventure living out of a van for a month in New Zealand’s south island fishing. Upon discovering the Western Mountains, Max landed in Utah and has not looked back!! He has a large diversity of experience in fishing and adventure and has developed a passion for studying/protecting the environment. Max is a very fun loving and patient guide. He has been an amazing addition to our fishing family!
