About Me

Arlo Townsend grew up fishing for grayling, pike, and salmon in the surrounding waters of his hometown, Fairbanks, AK. After high school, Arlo brought his love for fly fishing down to Reno, NV, where he currently resides and operates Arlo's Fly Fishing Services, a year-round fly fishing guide service on the Truckee River and Pyramid Lake, NV. A full time guide since 2004, Arlo has built a strong reputation as being the guide to hire in the Reno/Tahoe area. Arlo spends 250 plus days a year on the water. He shares his knowledge consistently and openly with the local fly clubs, conservation groups, Dept. of Wildlife, and his many clients. He has been a Guide Ambassador and Product Tester for Simms Fishing Products since 2006. Arlo is a dedicated instructor, guide, and angler. His experience and knowledge of the Truckee River system is second to none, and he loves to share all the secrets he has uncovered through the years.
