About Us

Born and raised in Paradise Valley, Zach Petrich is a full-time cattle rancher, hunting guide in the fall, and for you, a full-time fishing guide during Montana's summer. He grew up fishing the Yellowstone River and the countless creeks and streams that flow out of the Absaroka mountains. He's ready to show you his literal backyard and to be a part of your day in SW Montana.

Favorite River: Yellowstone
Favorite stretch to float: 
You'll have to come fish with Paradise Valley Angler to find that out!
Best memory with a client:
A small group of elk were swimming across the river by Yankee Jim canyon. The cherry on top was we were fighting a big cutthroat at the same time! 
Fun fact about you:
In my freetime, I Love to rope cattle and ride horses. I also pride myself on going from Wranglers and cowboy boots to shorts and flip flops in seconds.
What can someone expect when fishing with PVA?: Hardworking guides, top-notch service, and a special Montana experience.
