Caiden Boyt is the owner and operator of Cut Bank Outfitters. You can read below to find out more about the start of this outfitter. Caiden grew up in Northern Colorado and had endless exposure to mountain streams and lakes.  He cut his teeth fishing on the North Platte river and alpine lakes for trout. When he wasn't on a river or in the mountains, people could find him at a smallmouth bass lake. 

While attending Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colorado he had the opportunity to start guiding for Rio Grande Angler in Creede, Colorado during the summers. After graduating college he started guiding full time on the Rio Grande From April-September and then shifted gears to guide on the Animas and San Juan through the winter months.

It’s safe to say that Caiden spends more days creating friendships and guiding on the water than not. He claims that his  16’ Clackacraft drift boat is the best office he has ever had. Caiden's real passion is showing others how special the outdoors are and trying to help everyone create an experience on the river that is unforgettable.

Whether a person is brand new to the sport or a lifetime veteran, we are sure that Cut Bank Outfitters has something for you.
