Chris LittauerChris Littauer,
Partner/ Guide

Chris grew up in Princeton, NJ while spending every summer from the age of one until eighteen in the Western Catskill Mountains of upstate New York. Upon learning how to fly fish for bass when he was 10 years old, Chris quickly became intrigued by the famed trout rivers of the region including the Beaverkill, Willowemoc, East and West Branches of the Delaware and the Main Stem of the Delaware. The eight summers spent on these legendary waters cultivated Chris’ intense passion for fly fishing which eventually lead him to the Western River’s Guide School in the summer of 2010. Chris worked for WorldCast Anglers for two summers while attending Trinity College in Hartford, CT. Upon graduating in 2012, Chris moved to the Jackson Hole area and worked as Assistant Outfitting Manager for WCA. Chris oversees the Destination Travel Department, providing global fishing adventures that meet the same level of expectations as the rest of the WorldCast experience. Chris has traveled to over 25 countries, lived abroad on three different occasions and fished on four continents in his lifetime. Chris has come to value travel and fishing as two of the most fundamental aspects of his life and is thrilled to help others in their pursuit of similar passions.
