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. Whether you're a season fly fisherman or looking to up your game, this trip is perfect for you. Unlike most fly-fishing trips that target Trout, Ben specializes in catching Bass on the fly. 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

Is booking a fishing guide worth the money?

Hiring a guide provides a number of benefits and many choose to book a fishing guide for a combination of experience, local knowledge, convenience, and cost-effectiveness.

Working with experienced fishing guides who know the best local spots and techniques can dramatically increase your odds of a great day. Having someone who is on the water every day and knows the area like the back of their hand is going to give you the best chances of success.

Booking a guide is also more cost effective, especially if you only get out a handful of times per year. When you consider all of the costs you would incur on your own such as the price of a boat, maintenance, insurance, gas, high-quality gear and tackle, repairs, and more, you’ll find that DIY is sometimes not worth the expense.

Even if you’ve got a great setup already in your home waters, booking a guide also provides a great opportunity to experience new techniques, new locations, or even a chance at a new target species to knock off the bucket list.

Recent Reviews of Captain Experiences

  • ★★★★★
    We had a great float trip! Our guides, Cody and Mitch were fantastic!! They were very knowledgeable of the river how to get us on fish. We had a beginner that had never fly fish before and Cody and Mitch were very patient with teaching him how to cast and catch fish on a fly rod. I would highly recommend these guys for fishing on the Brazos!

    Terrific trip with Milton. Fishing started slow, but we stuck it out and everybody caught their first-ever gar! Milton moved spots several times to get us more shots, and we caught fish while every other boat on the river got skunked. Will definitely be back!

    We went with Cody and had a great time. I bass fish a lot but never thought about Alligator Gar fishing. But some friends from Czech Republic came to see me and that was on there bucket list. So we booked with Captain Experiences. The whole experience from start to finish was great. Shawna was great and keep us updated on everything. and was very quick to respond to any questions that we had. Cody sure knows what he is doing. our largest was 160.25 lbs. and I do think I will be going back. I do recommend you give it a try. Terry Varden
