Cliff Knight was born and raised in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in Rome, GA. There he spent his youth fly fishing for striped bass in his backyard river, the Etowah River. While studying at the University of Georgia, Cliff spent his summers fishing around Jackson Hole, Wyoming, learning everything he could about fishing around the Tetons. Cliff graduated college in 2015 and moved to Victor, Idaho full time. The first thing he did when he moved to Victor was attend the Western Rivers Guide School with WorldCast. After a summer spent managing the WorldCast Cottonwood Camp on the South Fork and working in the WorldCast Fly Shop, Cliff began guiding trout fishing full time for WorldCast. During his time guiding, Cliff developed a passion for fishing the turbulent whitewater stretches of the Teton River and Henry’s Fork rivers. Additionally, Cliff spent the winter of 2019-2020 managing Casa Blanca Fishing Lodge on Ascension Bay, Mexico where he learned the art of permit fishing and running a guide operation on a remote island.  With a few successful years of guiding trout fishing for WorldCast under his belt, Cliff has made a natural transition into a management role with WorldCast. In this role, Cliff focuses on managing WorldCast’s domestic fishing operations, overnight camps, and building lasting relationships with clientele. In his off time, Cliff can be found ski-patrolling at Grand Targhee Resort, bird hunting with his dog Alan, and exploring remote fishing opportunities around the Tetons.
