trip description for Brazos River Luxury Overnight in Granbury

Get out there on one of Texas' most scenic rivers for a two-day, one-night overnight fly-fishing adventure! Your guide, Ben, is a terrific angler and a master instructor who knows this water better than almost anyone.

In addition, you'll be able to chase bites from tons of freshwater species, including Catfish, Crappie, Gar, Drum, and more! These fish are a blast to fight on a flyrod, and can really help improve your casting technique, hookset, and more. On this overnight trip, you'll be treated like a king, with three meals a day, excellent camping accommodations, and a tailored experience that you can make all your own. Breakfasts and lunches will be light to keep you moving, but dinners are extremely hearty, with pork osso buco, venison barbacoa, and tons of other game-forward meals on offer. In addition, wine and liquor of your choice are available! Give us a call and let us help you book the Texas fly-fishing trip of a lifetime! Read More

trip description for Brazos River Drift Trip in Granbury

Enjoy this trip on one of North Texas' most beautiful rivers—the Brazos. You'll be in a perfect place to catch over ten species of freshwater sportfish, all while surrounding yourself with some of the best scenery this part of the state has to offer. From November to February, Texas Parks and Wildlife stocks this section of the Brazos with Rainbow Trout, so you can get a Rocky Mountain fly fishing experience without having to leave the state. This trip is a great "mixed bag" adventure, and because Bass, Trout, Gar, Cats, and Crappie all eat some of the same bugs, you never know what species is going to blow up your fly! Wade trips are also a great way for you to work on technique by receiving specific, one-on-one instruction from a professional fly fishing guide. Your guide, Ben, will provide everything you need for an epic trip, including rods, reels, tippet, and flies. The fish are biting—what are you waiting for?! Read More

Recent Reviews of Captain Experiences

  • ★★★★★
    Captain Richard was great! Myself being an experience bass fisherman, He was very informative. He put us on some bass even when the bite wasn't great! We will definitely be back!

    Bill J. with Richard T. of Willis, Texas

  • ★★★★★
    CaptaIn Jackie was outstanding I’ll use him again for sure.

    Steve M. with Jackie H. of Burnet, Texas

  • ★★★★★
    We had a great experience with Captain Kevin. He has a great rig, great personality and put us on enough Large Mouth to please me. I took my 10 year old son because he said he wanted to catch a large mouth. Kevin came through with an extra life jacket too (I forgot one for my son). One hiccup was we were going to meet at different lake but they closed it due to the horrible drought we are in. Kevin audibled and we meet at Lake Bastrop which was more convenient for me anyway. I would definitely recommend this easy to use app and would definitely hire Captain Kevin again. He had everything we needed and got us catching fish quickly. He is really good with kids too!

    Robert B. with Kevin M. of Austin, Texas

    Kevin was awesome and so was his boat

    George P. with Kevin M. of Austin, Texas

  • ★★★★★
    My experience was wonderful with Captain Kevin! He texted a couple days before the trip to ask if we could head out earlier than our scheduled time due to the heat and go try to beat the weekend rush of recreational boaters. So I met him at the boat ramp, which was very easy to find, at 6:15 and we headed out. The first place we fished was where we caught the biggest fish, pictured below, in the first 20 minutes of fishing. Things were a little slow the rest of the day, but we caught probably around a dozen fish, targeting and catching a variety of different species. . Captain Kevin was extremely friendly, and knows more about fishing than just about anybody I’ve met. He knew I’m a beginner, and was very kind and patient in teaching me and explaining everything to me. We swapped stories, got to know each other, and had the most wonderful time. I would highly recommend fishing with Captain Kevin.

    Chad G. with Kevin M. of Austin, Texas

  • ★★★★★
    Exceptional fisherman. Great personality & love his excitement & laugh. My wife and I are in our mid 70's but in good health. However, he saw to all our needs and especially finding Crappie. Will be all fishing guide for every fishing trip we book in the future. Had a wonderful time.

    Excellent fishing trip with Captain Richard. He is a very knowledgeable fishing guide with a great personality. We caught about 60 catfish in under 2 hours. He then gave us a boat tour of the Lake Conroe shoreline since it was our first time on the lake.
