Guided Fishing

Enhance your fishing experience like never before! Our friendly, experienced, and licensed fishing guides will definitely take you where the fish are. They are familiar with the river and all the secrets for successful fishing. You will be amazed at how much you can learn and how many fish you can catch in just one day with our guides. Our local trips fish the Buffalo City area, from Buffalo Shoals upriver to Nellie’s Apron downriver.

As an adventurous option, we offer full day guided float trips from Cotter or Rim Shoals to Buffalo City. You will drift through some great fishing holes and see some spectacular scenery. Whether you like to fish from a boat or get out wade, our guides will show you where and how to fish the river.

Our guided fishing trips all transportation, necessary tackle, and most bait. Prices do not include fishing license, lures, tax, food, or a customary gratuity for your guide. If you choose to keep fish, your guide will clean and bag them for you. NOTE: Make reservations early for guided fishing as the best guides and the best dates fill up fast!

Half day trips are 4 hours - 7:30 - 11:30.
Full day trips are 8 hours - 7:30 - 3:30.
