The Ohio River Valley offers a vast variety of fishing opportunities. While this area of Appalachia may not be a fly fisherman’s destination spot, it does have rewards awaiting those willing to put in the effort. We tailor our trips based on the clients needs. Whether you want to run the big river like Huck fin, float down a remote creek, or wade fish smaller streams…… We can make it happen. All trips are on The Ohio River or one of its tributaries.
