This is the third guided trip I’ve had with Southern Appalachian Angler and I couldn’t be happier with their services. First trip I caught a ton of bass. Second and third trip I’ve caught a ton of trout. My forth trip will be for the elusive musky and I know SAA will do a great job on that one as well. If you looking for a guided trip in the Asheville area give SAA a call you won’t be disappointed. - Brian Cordeo

If this is any indication, Nate has been asking to go fishing every day since we left. - Rob Speir

Fishing is becoming a great way for us to come together as a family and appreciate the beauty of our waters and mountain venues in North Carolina. It was a thrill to fish for wild trout and understand their habitat. Nothing beats hands on and this was a great hands on experience. You both met and exceeded our expectations.  - The Bohlens

I went on a full day guided bass fishing trip on Lake Jocassee a couple weeks ago. Got to catch large and smallmouth bass on the lake, which happens  to be one of the most beautiful lakes I've ever been to. Then my guide Paul took me up to the mouth of the Toxaway river for lunch and a little fly fishing for Rainbows and Browns. I just can't recommend Southern Appalachian Anglers enough! - Robert McKinley
