Guide Services

Fish and Explore offers guided fishing trips and beginner lessons. We specialize in teaching beginners to fish and experienced anglers to improve their skills. Our favorite trips are float trips on the Shenandoah and Upper Potomac Rivers. We target Smallmouth Bass, but our client family has caught Largemouth Bass, Walleye, Tiger Muskie, Rock Bass, Crappie, Brim, Catfish and Snakehead!

Our Guides teach both spinning and fly-fishing techniques. We provide all the gear. St. Croix rods and Quantum and Shimano reels. You only need to dress to fish and bring a winning attitude!

Beginner lessons, for people with little to no experience fishing, can be taught year-round indoors or out and can include fishing on local lakes and creeks. Perfect for anyone that wishes to learn how to fish.
