After searching for guide services in the area and becoming frustrated at "high priced" packages, I found Allwater Guide Service's website and ultimately selected Captain Steve to take my son and I fishing. I was looking for an affordable get-away on a local lake to spend quality time with my son and hopefully get him into some fish. Being that he is only 6, I was not interested in the hype and propaganda of landing that large "fish of a lifetime" for me, but rather to have my son catch some fish...any fish...just to see the smile on his face. Upon contacting Captain Steve, he immediately understood what I was looking for and indicated that he had ideas of how to make it a reality. He was also more than reasonable when it came to price. I am extremely glad that I found Allwater Guide Service, as Captain Steve was able to put us on a bunch of fish and my little guy enjoyed reeling them all in. Not only is Captain Steve very knowledgeable with various types fishing, he works very well with kids and has the ability to relate with them on their skill level to make the entire trip something to truly remember. I know the smile on my sons face at the end of the day made it all worthwhile to me and I will remember it always. I look forward to being able to get back out on the lake with Captain Steve again!

"I was thrilled to go on my first salmon fishing trip with Allwater Guide in October of 2011. Mr. George made the experience well worth the effort, and taught me a lot about how the salmon respond to different bait, and best practices to catch them.
We ended the day with 2 big ones! A female 25lb, and a male 30lb. I'll definitely be back!"

This man, Stephen George, is a fantastic guide. He is an amazing fisherman and he has so much knowledge. Not to mention he is a blast to hang out with out on the water. Give him a shot. The experience will only enhance your knowledge and help you make the most out of your fishing trips!

Over the years, I have fished multiple waters with various guides throughout NY. I have found Captain Steve to be one of the most educated fisherman and one of the most respectful guides, I have ever had the pleasure to fish with. Captain Steve knows where the fish are, how to catch them and his boat and equipment are well maintained. He is a down to earth person willing to teach those on his boat. His manner is family friendly and he enjoys working with kids. I highly recommend him as a guide for families and people looking for a respectful guide. Fishing with Captain Steve is like fishing with an old friend.
