Our owner, Peter Wooldridge, first discovered fly fishing in the waters surrounding Upland Angler Lodge while living in Montana. Although he has taken his love for fly fishing all over the world, he returns to the canyon area year after year. Peter and his wife, Patricia, are now happy to combine that love of fly fishing and travel to offer a uniquely intimate experience on the Missouri River.
