Jon Carlton has been fly fishing the creeks and streams in the Eastern Sierra since he was 15 years old. In 1999 he moved to Mammoth Lakes full time to enjoy the mountain lifestyle. He began working for the Troutfitter in 2003.
In 2008, Jon graduated from the Clearwater Guide School and has been working for the Troutfitter Guide Service ever since. He enjoys teaching new anglers fly fishing techniques and etiquette, and helping old dogs learn new tricks. If he’s not in the backcountry looking for golden trout, he can be found guiding on Hot Creek, the Owens River, and the Middle Fork San Joaquin River.
