Fishing Instruction and Guided Trips

Fly-Fishing Schools and Private Instruction
Our Weekend Fly-Fishing Schools are held on select weekends from February through November. Kingfisher Outfitters provides all necessary equipment, off-site transportation and lunch on both days. The courses are taught by professional, casting  instructors with years of experience in fly-fishing and an infectious passion for their pursuit. Private instruction is also available from our expert instructors. This option offers a condensed version of most of the classroom, fly casting and fly-fishing instruction available in the two-day school. Schools cost $350 per person and are limited to 12 participants. Private instruction rates vary - visit our Fishing & Boating page for more information.

Guided Trips
Kingfisher Outfitters is happy to arrange trips for fly-fishing and bass fishing. Trips are led by Callaway Gardens’ certified instructors and may take place on one of our 12 professionally managed lakes that are otherwise off limits for fishing. All equipment is provided and all guided trips are catch-and-release only. We suggest you bring a cap and polarized sunglasses for safety and comfort. Every year we guide hundreds of people on fly-fishing excursions, from the most seasoned veterans to beginners who have never held a fly rod in their hands. Fly-fishing at Callaway Gardens is done primarily from float tubes on our professionally managed lakes. We offer half-day (four hours) and full-day (eight hours) guided trips for largemouth bass and bream year-round, and rainbow, brown and brook trout from November through April. The fee for a party of one or two is $200 for a half-day (four hours) outing, $300 for a full-day (eight hours).

Please Note
     • Guided trips must be reserved at least seven days in advance.
     • Children younger than 16 must be accompanied by an adult on rental boats.
     • Kingfisher Outfitters does not rent float tubes or fly-fishing equipment.
