Trout Bandits Guide Service is owned and operated by Tim Schut.  Tim was born and raised only a couple miles from blue ribbon trout streams in his home state of Michigan.   Upon graduating high school, Tim packed up his belongings and drove west to Livingston, Montana where he attended Sweetwater Travel Company's Guide School. Since then, Tim has spent his days guiding fly fishermen in Arkansas, Alaska, Michigan, Montana, Idaho, and Wyoming. Now, Tim calls Arkansas's White River home, only leaving during the summer months (July-September) to chase big rainbows and salmon in Alaska!  Tim also holds a United States Coast Guard Captains 

License, and is CPR/First Aid certified.  



Trout Bandits Guide Service can accommodate larger groups with both multi-boat trips and lodging options available.
