Chris Leonard is a teacher at Mammoth High School. His greatest passions are education and fly fishing, making him a choice fly fishing instructor and on-water guide. He guides through Kittredge Sports during the summer, also weekends and holidays during the school year.

Rivers and lakes. Tenkara and traditional rods.

He has lived in Mammoth full time since 2004. His favorite waters to fish and guide include the Owens River, Hot Creek, Rush Creek, Rock Creek, San Joaquin River, and Crowley Lake.

A seasoned traveler, he has chased trout as close as the Western US, as far away as the Midwest, Eastern US, Central America and South America. He has hooked chrome in the Pacific Northwest, redfish in NOLA, and bonefish, permit, and tarpon in Belize.

Ask Chris about the Mammoth High School Fly Fishing Club. He takes local Mammoth kids out on the water to teach them how to fly fish!
