You are not just "going on a fishin' trip"! You are about to embark on one of the highlights of your fishing experiences! An outing with RiverCity Catfishing Guide Service is more than "a ride to the fishin' hole" and "watchin" the guide catch fish. I am happy to give you as much instruction and help as needed, prior to and during the trip, and want YOU to catch fish and enjoy the day.

RiverCity Catfishing Guide Service wishes your fishing trip to be an experience you will enjoy and talk about, with fond memories, for years to come. I will do all of the work and preparation for your trip, but adhering to our safety and conduct standards will help make your experience even more enjoyable. We want you to have fun and savor the fantastic fishing our beloved Ohio river has to offer. But… we wish to do it in a safe, ethical and environmentally friendly manner. After all, we want this resource to be available to our children and our children's children. We look forward to having you aboard. Good fishin', safe boatin', keep your net wet and your lines tight!

I will do everything possible to assure your trip with us will be one to remember. However… NO ONE can guarantee the fish will want to cooperate. I spend a ton of time on the river and I will strive to put you on fish.
