Guided Fishing Trips

Guided Fishing Trips

Boat guide trips include rods and reels, boat and gas, bait and lures. It is your choice to fish with fly rods or spincast gear; both types of trips are available.

All fishing guides have years of experience on Lake Taneycomo. All have very nice boats and equipment and are licensed USGS Approved with a OUPV Coast Guard Captain's License to commercially guide on the White River System of Lakes, and insured.

Half day guided trips usually start very close to sunrise in the morning. Afternoon trips start anywhere from noon to 1 p.m., depending on the client's schedule. On most trips, the client is to meet their guide here at the resort. Please come a little early if you need a fishing license. Also, please consider Lake Taneycomo is a cold water lake and even in the heat of summer, the mornings are cold and damp on the lake. Bring a sweatshirt. Refreshments: Our guides will have drinking water on board.

If you would like to keep your catch, our guides will clean your trout, bag them so that they're ready for your cooler.

We do encourage catch and release for our trophy rainbows and browns (over 20 inches), although it is up to the client. Be sure to bring a camera because these trout are beautiful and so is the scenery.

For larger groups please call for rates.
