Guided Fishing Trips

Brazos on the Fly caters to all anglers. If you'd like to learn how to fly fish we will focus on casting basics, reading the river, and the various types of flies and techniques. If getting on the water and catching fish is your goal practice your casting before your trip and I'll work to get you on some great Brazos river fish! Scroll down to see pricing for our trip offerings.

All trips include the use of Orvis Helios 3D and Orvis Recon fly rods, as well as Redington and Sage rods. Flies are provided. If you prefer to bring your own that's great as well! If you choose to bring your own flies get in contact with me prior to your trip and I can provide some guidance on the fly selection that will best suit your trip timeline. 

 

Full day trips include a lunch, snacks, and water with cooler space for any drinks you may want to bring. You are welcome to bring your favorite alcoholic beverage but please drink responsibly. Anglers 17 years of age and older need to purchase a Texas fishing license which can be purchase on the Texas Parks and Wildlife Website. Full day trips typically run 8 hours.

Half day trips include snacks and water and a cooler to keep your beverages cold. Half day trips typically run 4-5 hours.

All ages are welcome to fish with us. We want to foster a love for fly fishing and stewardship for generations to come!

 

Keep in mind that practicing your cast will benefit your trip. There are tons of resources out there such as the Orvis Fly Fishing Learning Center that can immensely improve your abilities before getting on the water.

Hog Island Skiff Trips

Half Day: $350 (1-2 Anglers)

Full Day: $450 (1-2 Anglers)

What to Expect: The Hog Island skiff is our baby! She's set up with oars, a poling (or casting) platform, a forward casting brace and a 30hp jet outboard. Trips with this boat are not limited to the Brazos river but it does allow us to fish some of the farther reaches of the Upper Brazos river below Possum Kingdom Lake. We can also hit some of the local lakes if that is your preference or if the river is too low or too high. 

Not included: Waders (needed only in winter and cooler temperatures), sun protection, wading boots/shoes, rain coat, change of clothes, towels.

North Texas weather is sometimes unpredictable. Trips will be conducted unless unsafe weather conditions (lightning, hail, tornadic likelihood, etc.) are imminent.

Wading Trips

Half Day: $200 (1-2 anglers)

Full Day: $250 (1-2 anglers)

What to expect: Fish up to 3 miles of the Brazos river below Morris Sheppard dam. This trip is great for anglers looking to learn a little bit more about casting, wading, and just getting outdoors. This stretch of river can be crowded depending on the season so be prepared to show up early to get a good starting spot. There are plenty of opportunities for fish in this stretch but depending on fishing pressure and weather/water conditions, results can vary.

Not included: Waders (needed only in winter and cooler temperatures), sun protection, wading boots/shoes, rain coat, change of clothes, towels.

Paddle Trips (Limited to 1 angler)

Half Day: $250 (1 angler)

Full Day: $325 (1 angler)

What to Expect: The half day paddle trips will include us paddling about 2-3 miles of river and the full day about 3-4 miles, both in an Old Town Penobscot canoe. This allows us to cover some more ground and hit some banks that are otherwise difficult to reach while wading with a fly rod. These trips are limited to one angler. This is a great option for those that are looking for a quiet escape with a great opportunity to fish a beautiful stretch of river.

Not included: Waders (needed only in winter and cooler temperatures), sun protection, wading boots/shoes, rain coat, change of clothes, towels.

North Texas weather is sometimes unpredictable. Trips will be conducted unless unsafe weather conditions (lightning, hail, tornadic likelihood, etc.) are imminent.

Location

Highway 16 Bridge

Unless other arrangements are specified, fishing trips will begin at the put in ramp at the Highway 16 bridge below Morris Sheppard Dam on Possum Kingdom Lake. If you put the Possum Kingdom State Fish Hatchery in your favorite map app it will get you there. Keep going South past the hatchery and park on either side of the bridge as specified by me. If you are heading North on Highway 16 you'll reach the bridge before the Hatchery.
