Our Guide Services

Mad River Outfitters is proud to offer a complete professional Ohio fly fishing guide service on local waters for brown trout, smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, steelhead trout, musky, pike and carp. We offer hand-picked licensed fly fishing guides for the Erie and Ontario tributaries in Michigan, Pennsylvania and New York as well.

Our original specialty, Mad River Guided Trips, offer a unique option with a float trip for brown trout in our AuSable and McKenzie River boats. We also guide for trout on the Clearfork River near Mansfield.

Jet Boat and Float  trips for Smallmouth Bass and Pike are also available on several productive waters such as the Kokosing, Scioto and Darbys and many others. Smallmouth Bass and Pike fishing in Ohio just might surprise you!
