Guided Fishing Trips

Whether you’re looking for a last minute, fun activity while visiting Branson or travel to our lake area exclusively to fish one of our lakes, our professional fishing guides offer short or long fishing trips for the whole family. Considering the Missouri Department of Conservation stocks about 550,000 trout in Lake Taneycomo, catching trout is relatively easy even for the novice angler. Our Taneycomo fishing guides have all the equipment and expertise to provide a fun day catching fish.

Guided Fishing Trips Include:

  • Professional guide boat
  • The perfect rods and reels to catch trout
  • Bait, lures, and flies
  • Life jackets
  • Fish cleaning and packaging

It is your choice to fish with fly rods or spincast gear; both types of trips are available, depending on which guide you go with.  Some specialize in fly fishing trips so if you want to fly fish, make sure you find a guide that does that.

All of our guides are insured and provide the boat and equipment for your trip. Each one is USGS Approved with an OUPV Coast Guard Captain’s License to commercially guide on the White River System of Lakes.

What Time Do Guide Trips Start?

Depending on the time of year, guided trips usually start very close to sunrise in the morning. Afternoon trips start anywhere from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., depending on the client’s and guide’s schedule. On most trips, the client is to meet their guide here at the resort. Please come a little early if you need a fishing license.

For larger groups please call for rates. There is an option to rent a pontoon in which a guide can take only up to 6 people. His USCG license does not permit him to take more than 6.

Things To Consider

  • Taneycomo is a cold water lake averaging about 50 degrees year round.  The water in the summer is actually the coldest so early morning trips can be pretty chilly.  Bring at least a sweatshirt, even if the forecast calls for triple digit temps during the day.
  • If you’re going to keep fish, you should have a plan to transport your catch back home.  Bring a cooler and ice.  Your guide will clean and bag your trout.
  • We strongly encourage catch and release for our trophy trout. If you get lucky enough to catch a trophy, you have many anglers to thank for releasing it before you. Your guide will help you take good pictures of your catch and even measure your trophy if you want to get a replica made.
  • If you catch a 20-inch or larger trout and release it, Lilleys’ Landing will issue you an official Catch & Release Certificate, a C&R Patch and a nice C&R bronze pin. You will also be featured on our website. Ask your guide about it!

Wade Trips and Drift Boat Trips also Available.

Meet Our Guides

Billy Elbert fishing guide An avid Bass and Crappie angler with success in a lot of of regional and local tournaments. I was bitten by the trout bug a couple years ago and now dedicate a lot of time to learning about and catching the giant trout that live in Taneycomo!
Captain Tony After hitting the lakes 250 days so far this year, Guide Tony Weldele should be ready for his annual winter vacation to Florida.  But as the clients keep calling and emailing, he will gladly delay just to provide them the outdoor adventure they are craving.

Born and reared in St. Louis, Weldele, 46,  does not remember life before Branson vacations.

“I caught my first trout on Lake Taneycomo when I was five years old,” he said. “When I was old enough to drive down here by myself, I came down as much as I could.”

After working at Anheuser-Busch out of high school, he could delay no longer no to follow the fishing fervor at 22 and so moved to the tri-lakes region.

He’s been guiding on Taneycomo, Table Rock and Bull Shoals lakes since 1993, first opening a small bait shop and then also operating a lakefront resort for a few years with his wife, Melanie. His Rainbow Chasers Guide Service is now 20 years old.

One of his personal fishing highlights was catching a 21-pound Taneycomo brown on his favorite — a No. 11 gold Rapala.  (He also favors sculpin-colored jigs.)

Weldele has worked on the Bass Pro Fishing Team for the past seven years, promoting Bass Pro and guiding clients out of Big Cedar for bass and crappie trips and the new trend — night bow fishing excursions for carp and gar.

Big Cedar guests have flocked to the new experience, he said, which is an energy challenge for the guides who will finish a night outing at midnight and then arise at 5 a.m. for the next day’s bass trip.

“But it is a blast for the guests,” he said, who otherwise could not venture out without the equipment and expert guides.

When he is not on the lakes, Weldele takes to the woods as an avid bow hunter who has bagged a variety of trophy big-game animals across North America.

That passion has led to a new part-time business with a high school buddy and other friends.  Spyder Action was developed in the last two years to provide video production for clients’ outdoor adventures.  Their website also showcases their own adventures in “Spyder Bytes.”

While Weldele splits his guiding time between primarily bass and trout trips, safety and the clients’ learning of new skills are always of prime importance to him.  “I almost do all of my trips in the trophy area,” he said, “since the whole point of going on a guide trip is to teach the clients something new.”

“I like to say that the only person who has ever fallen out of my boat was a Dallas Cowboy football player — but that’s another story from when I was young . . .”
Jeremy Rasnick fishing guide If you truly want to experience the unique and diverse resources the Ozarks Lakes have to offer, a great Fishing Guide will help you get started in the right direction. My name is Captain Jeremy Rasnick, my goal and passion is to entertain people while teaching them new tricks and techniques to catch fish, while using top notch equipment. I take pride in fishing the opportunity and conditions. We are blessed to be in an area that offers such diversity in angling experiences. From Brown and Rainbow Trout, living in the cold waters of Lake Taneycomo, to the abundant warm water species of Table Rock Lake, the Ozarks region offers a fishing opportunity for all desires and skill levels.

I was born and raised on the banks of Lake Taneycomo, growing up riding my bicycle to the waters edge after school, seeing how many trout I could catch before dinner. In high school and college I worked as a dock hand at the State Park Marina on Table Rock Lake. My passion for being on the water runs deep. I have a bachelors degree in Business Administration from the College of the Ozarks better known as (Hard Work U), as well as a Masters of Science degree in Environmental Management from Webster University. While in college, my summers consisted of several road trips with college buddies fly fishing the rivers and streams of Colorado and Montana, and bass fishing and cat fishing the lakes in between. In 2008 I married my college sweetheart Natalie, and in 2017 we landed our best keeper yet, our daughter Wren. I am a former Park Ranger with the US Army Corps of Engineers, serving the public and protecting our lakes natural resources. I am excited to be at a point in my life where I can teach people how to enjoy these natural resources I have spent a career in protecting. As a professional Fishing Guide, I have the opportunity not only to meet new people everyday, but to teach people how to enjoy these Ozark Lakes, by catching fish. I focus on understanding my clients expectations, and tailoring each trip to meet their needs. From seeing a client catch their first fish on a fly, their first fish period, or getting our next generation fired up about the outdoors, is why I do what I do.

I am currently operating a 2021 Xpress 22’ center console aluminum bay boat, powered by a 175 horsepower Yamaha outboard, providing plenty of room for the whole family.
Pete Leonard fishing guide My name is Pete Leonard I have grown up fishing the lakes of southwest Missouri. I grew up in Ava, Missouri where I attended school. After graduation I attended College of the Ozarks where I played basketball and majored in physical education. I now live in Branson with my wife and our three kids. Along with guiding I also Coach basketball and the fishing team at Hollister High School. I love being on the water and being able to help people enjoy the great outdoors as much as I do.
Captain Darren Sadler Darren Sadler has been an avid fisherman and outdoorsman since childhood and has been fishing the Ozark trout waters for over 20 years. For Darren, there is no greater joy than sharing his passion for fishing and outdoor life with his clients. Darren’s goal is to make each trip a fun and learning experience as he shares his knowledge for finding fish. He is skilled in catching a variety of freshwater species, including trout, bass, crappie, white bass, and panfish, using a variety of methods, including fly fishing.

Before realizing his dream of starting a fishing guide service, Darren worked as a naturalist and fishing guide at Dogwood Canyon Nature Park. He has also worked for several outdoor companies, including Bass Pro Shops, White River Fly Shop, Rapala/Storm, and Drury Outdoors.

When he is not on the water, Darren enjoys creating custom fishing tackle, tying flies, foraging for edible mushrooms, and spending time with his trusty K-9 companion, Pepper, who is equally passionate about fishing and hunting. Darren’s passion for the outdoors is infectious and he enjoys sharing it with fellow pros and newcomers alike. Rest assured that regardless of your level of experience, Darren will ensure that your trip is memorable and tailored to your needs.

Captain Doty

My interest in fly fishing began at the age of 10. My first fly rod was a nine-foot bark stripped willow branch with eyelets, pilfered from a Zebco rod and taped onto the blank. I spent many hours, every day, out in the backyard learning and mastering the art of fly casting with my rudimentary piece of equipment. A few years later, at the age of 13, my interest in fly tying started to develop. I started with primitive chenille and hackle wooly buggers and duck quill coachman flies resembling deformed wasps. I have certainly come a long way since those simple days of barnyard flies and the unrefined stick that I proudly called a fly rod.

I cut my trout teeth in the late 70’s at Bennett Springs and Montauk State Parks in Missouri. In my late teens, after reading an article in an outdoor magazine about the tremendous fishery of Lake Taneycomo, I was driven to experience the legendary tailwater fishing opportunities.

In 2006, I logged over 2500 hours on the water, day and night, including one stretch of 39 hours straight, all while still maintaining a full time job. I started moonlighting for a local fly shop, picking up guide trips in the evenings and on weekends. At this point in time, I concluded that a mainstream job might be getting in the way of what I really enjoyed doing- fishing.

By 2007, I found myself in Alaska on a fishing adventure of a lifetime. At the end of the week, I had secured a position as a guide at Naknek River Camp, in Katmai National Park, Western Alaska. That is where I spent my summers, helping clients live their dreams chasing all five Pacific Salmon, Arctic Char, Dolly Varden, Arctic Grayling, and Giant Rainbows, along with some of the world’s most intense bear viewing, thrown in on the side.

Now that I guide full-time on Lake Taneycomo, my intent is more than just taking a person fishing for a day. I would rather educate clients about the water being fished, the species pursued, and, then, by sharpening their learning curve, making it possible for them to return, without a guide, for a productive fishing trip. I enjoy and take great pride in sharing the information, knowledge and experiences I have learned from my countless hours on the water to help others create great memories of fantastic fishing adventures.

Captain B Brian has been Fishing the waters near Branson Missouri since 1995.  Taneycomo, Table Rock Lake and Stockton Lake are all familiar waters. Brian also fishes tournaments professionally.

“As Professional Tournament Fisherman, I stay current with all of the most recent techniques.  I have worked very hard, and continue to do so, every day to take my clients out on the best-guided fishing trip they have ever been on.  Fish Catching is GUARANTEED.”

My boats and tackle are current and CLEAN.  Almost all of the lures and flies we’ll use I make myself.  I don’t sell them online or in a marina, so the only times the fish see them are when clients are fishing with me.  I Tournament Fish and keep up with all the most recent fishing techniques trying new flies and keeping track of where the fish are and what colors they are biting on. I am a licensed, insured, a Coast Guard approved Captain, and a Professional Tournament Angler. I am trained in first aid, CPR, and am an expert boat operator. I have never brought my clients back to the dock empty-handed.”

“Taking individuals, couples, families, and groups fishing is a normal work week for me. Kids do really well–it is amazing how intently they focus when the fish are biting!  I hope you will give me the opportunity to be your fishing guide while in Branson or Ozarks Area and to provide you and your family a fun, exciting, and safe fishing trip.”
Tracy Frenzel To many clients, Guide Tracy Frenzel seems amazingly cheerfully as he juggles his time and energy as an outdoorsman, artist, recreation director — and dad to four girls, one a newborn.

One of the benefits of guiding, he said is that “people are always in a good mood when they are fishing — at least 99 out of 100 anyway.”

Helping in his parents butcher shop in St. Louis taught Frenzel the value of time management — and about animal anatomy, which carried over to his graphite drawings and fish reproductions.

A whitetail buck he painted in acrylic on a piece of surplus leather won a blue ribbon at the Ozark Empire Fair.  In June his work was featured in  the “Music from America” show at the Dewey Short Visitor Center, as part of the summer schedule for the Taneycomo Festival Orchestra.  The exposure has given him more projects for the slower guide months in winter, especially for custom fish reproductions.(Frenzel just kindly used his painting skills on the old 40-pound-plus lunker trout mounted above our store desk — the one found floating dead years ago on Lake Taneycomo.)

To Frenzel, the mix of art and the outdoors comes naturally, drawing since kindergarten under his grandmother’s tutelage and enjoying the outdoors with his parents, both in the Ozarks and at home.

“I fished every day I could growing up,” he said,” so I was never involved in school sports.  I would work out with my friends, but that was after dark — and after I had worked at the shop for a couple of hours.”

He brought his old boat from high school with him when he came to study art at College of the Ozarks.  “I kept my boat down at Main Street Dock for awhile — until it sank,” he said.  He eventually gave the yellow Ozark Tri-Haul to someone and still passes it often, parked on someone’s property on E. 76 Highway.

Frenzel was just 20 hours shy of graduating with a graphic design and art education degree when he left school, realizing it would be tough to make a living on artwork alone and design jobs would mean sitting inside all day behind a computer.

“It was more important to me to just enjoy art,” he said, “and be able to just pull out the pad and sketch whenever I could — maybe just for a few minutes after deer hunting or fishing.”

After bartending at Applebees since college, Frenzel officially obtained his guide license in 2006, initially just to offset the costs of his outdoor endeavors.  “All my friends were guides with nice boats,” he jokes, and they told me if I wanted a nice boat I would have to guide.”

He just passed his fifth anniversary at The Cliffs at Long Creek, working five days (or evenings) a week as recreational director.  The position gives him flexibility to guide days even as he juggles staff and duties for the 25-unit Bluegreen facility.

“It is really convenient for fishing Table Rock Lake,” he said, “because I can just launch right there at Long Creek.”

Frenzel and his wife, Molly,  a longtime manager at Cakes-n-Creams in Branson, are rearing their girls in Kirbyville.  Amid all their activities,  he hopes to pass on the passion for the outdoors and his gratitude for every opportunity to enjoy it.
Captain Rader 2022 has me starting my 20th year guiding here on the Table Rock Lake tailwater known as Taneycomo. It was a goal of mine to be doing this gig since I was about 10 years old. My dad would take me and my brother on guided trips and I absolutely loved it!…I still do! And I especially remember those cool guides that helped me and taught me and just gave me a great experience in general. I try to be that guy on every trip. Fly fishing or spin fishing…grizzled vet to ‘never touched a fishin pole in my life’…I like to think we have a pretty good rep across all facets. We can target BIG fish, lots of fish, your first fish:) It’s a good time no matter how you slice it. We’ll talk about what your goal for the day is and then we’ll go make it happen. We’re the original “Catch Fish Guaranteed” guide service…and after 20 years in operation we have a 100% success rate on every trip! So, bad news is you’re probably going to have to pay for your trip. The good news is it’s only the first fish that’s really expensive…the rest of them are free!
Captain Lisek Despite his years fishing professionally in tournaments and promoting the fishing industry, the daily thrill for Guide Rick Lisek, Jr., is showing off the lake wildlife to his clients.

“I see wildlife everyday — foxes, eagles and waterfowl in addition to the fish,” he said. “I love watching my customers enjoy the wildlife – and I love the trout fishing.”

Lisek, who guides about 90 percent of the summer on Lake Taneycomo, moved to the Ozarks in 1995 when his father retired from the U.S. Marine Corps to the postal service in Springfield.

“I put myself through college fishing tournaments,” he said. After earning an associate’s degree from Ozark Technical College in Springfield, “I went to college at Evangel where I majored in business and marketing.”

He has won 19 tournaments — including the FLW Champion at Lake Champlain in 2003 – finished in the top five, 18 times and the top 10, 26 times.

Lisek also ran a fiberglass business for eight years after college until auto accident injuries in 2006 made him re-evaluate his work schedule.

“I have had my U.S. Coast Guard Captain’s license going on 12 years now,” he said.

He commutes from Springfield where he lives with his wife, Jennifer, and their 9-year-old daughter Trista Rose. From his home base he has also presented seminars at sport and boat shows throughout the Midwest, promoted bass fishing in area schools and conducted product demonstrations at regional and national marine dealerships.

In the fall and spring, Lisek said about half of his gude trips are on Table Rock Lake in search of largemouth, smallmouth, white or Kentucky bass, bluegill and crappie. He is equipped to handle groups, as well as individuals, even those with physical handicaps.

His commitment, he said, is to provide all ages and skill levels of clients, be they beginners or seasoned fishermen, with a great time on the water.
null Steve Dickey has been fishing since he could walk — or even toddle — and is living his dream life guiding on Branson area lakes.

“I am a water dog,” he said this week. “I have to be on the water.  I just don’t function indoors well.”

“I started professionally fishing in 1998, but I had plans since I was 14 years old of fishing professionally, buying my first bass boat when I was a freshman in high school.”

“I’m a life-long, self-taught fisherman,” he notes on his website, Anglers Advantage.  “My obsession with fishing began as a small child when we would drive over a bridge and I could see the fishermen below on the water.  As soon as I was able to toddle, I was out the door and across the road to the river.  When my mother realized I was gone she called 911 and told them, ‘I know he’s headed toward the river.’ The search party found me in a cornfield just short of the riverbank and nearly two miles from home.  I won my first trout tournament on a spinning rod when I was six years old.”

That’s why Dickey is passionate about giving clients, young and old, the joy of fishing in the best spots with the best equipment, no matter their skill level or disability.

“Just last week I took a blind man out,” he said.  “He caught 19 fish and out-fished his wife. I have had many clients in wheelchairs, and there has never been any problem.”

He believes so strongly that hiring a professional guide is always worth the money, that he reserves guides wherever he goes on vacation and personally offers a refund if his clients don’t catch fish – something he never has had to do.

“Of course, on Lake Taneycomo, you can fish every day.  No matter how cold it is, the lake never freezes over, and even when it’s 100 degrees in Branson in the summer, you get on the lake when the water is generating and feel like it’s 75.”

Dickey caters each trip to the client, whether they choose to relax drifting and enjoying the scenery or aggressively want to learn every technique he can teach them, spincast or fly fishing.

“If you have a child with disabilities who would enjoy participating in a fishing trip, just give us a call and we will work out a special price, time arrangements, and whatever is needed to make this a wonderful experience for your child,” he said.

Dickey’s whole life has revolved around fish and animals. Before he moved to Branson in 2004, he lived in Overland Park, KS (Kansas City area.) He and other animal activists saw a need for more humane efforts to re-locate wildlife and founded the non-profit Animal Protection Agency.  As a chief field agent for three years, he handled, fed, and rehabilitated everything from copperhead snakes to bald eagles, snapping turtles, porcupines and even coyotes.

David Pitt Taneycomo fishing guide
KC FLATS CO (913) 488-5577

Growing up, I dreamed of being a professional bass fisherman, hitting the lakes and ponds around Topeka KS as often as possible, often skipping school. The pro gig never happened, but college, marriage, and kids allowed for recreational fishing. Life settled down, so I ramped up my fly fishing experience by fishing Taneycomo, the White River, and out West often. When possible, I fished saltwater, warm and cold water all over the country, but spent most of my time fishing Taneycomo. I realized I loved taking and teaching people to fly fish, so I started to help teach Orvis fly fishing classes and, about 5 years ago, started taking Veterans from Project Healing Waters fly fishing. I got my USCG captain’s credentials and started guiding commercially.

I exclusively fly fish out of a Mako Pro Skiff 19 center console. Its deck and stability are well suited for fly fishing. I will tailor your guide trip to your experience level. If you are a beginner, you will learn the basics that can be applied on other trout waters. Experienced folks will get on fish using the usual nymphing techniques, but we can also mix things up by chucking streamers.

Captain Gries Guide Chuck Gries credits his wife, Lynn, with luring him to flyfishing on Lake Taneycomo in the mid-1980s.

He had been hooked on fly fishing through a senior trip from his Iowa high school to Bear Tooth Wilderness Area in Montana.  “It was two weeks of just backpacking and fishing with about two dozen kids,” he said.

But the consistency of Taneycomo’s trout lured the avid anglers back season after season until they finally moved here in 1994 and opened Anglers & Archery Outfitters in 1997.

“Our goal at Anglers and Archery Outfitters is your success,” they state on their website.  “Whether your passion is fly-fishing for trophy trout or harvesting whitetail deer and turkey with a bow and arrow. We pride ourselves in no nonsense fly-fishing and archery advice. Honesty and integrity is what you will find in our shop.”

Their convenient location on U.S. 165 Highway close to the Shepherd of the Hills Hatchery keeps them on top of the trophy area of the lake.  Gries offers a popular wading trip but can switch to boat fishing if the generation picks up too much or the clients decide they want to keep a few trout.

“We can pretty much follow what the client wants,” he said, “whether they are novice fishermen or expert anglers.  We have had a bunch of kids who have learned to fly fish and become comfortable with it, and also some adults who have never fished at all before who have loved it.”

His largest personal lunker was a 35-1/2in, 19.5-pound brown caught on a night fishing trip back in 1997 — about 1 a.m.

“Night fishing was a great deal of fun –back then,” Gries said. “Now I would rather sleep . . .  But since then as I have kept track, we have put guests on trophyfish as much or more during the day when you can actually sight the fish and not cast blindly.”

Last fall a client caught a 28-inch, 12.5-pound trophy; the largest trout a client caught and released was 33 inches long, weighing 19.25 pounds.

Gries can outfit clients with everything they need for a successful fishing trip, whether they fly fish or spin cast.  The shop, open all but a few holidays and a week in January, also rents waders to visitors not booking guides and sells the latest lures for fishing Table Rock as well.

They custom tie the “hot” flies daily and welcome customers who just want some hands-on instruction for a certain pattern. That is, except for a special ice shrimp scud their son Adam ties in three or four different colors, usually sizes #18- #20.

“Adam mixes his own dubbing for it, and won’t mix it when anyone else is around — not even me,” Gries said.  Now that Adam is working as a traveling welder (currently in Iowa), those flies have become a hot commodity only available when Adam is back in town visiting and ties a few.

The Gries family is especially grateful that Adam is recovering from a rare pneumonia in December that led to a lung infection, blood infection and eventual shutdown of his kidneys, putting him on life support for 11 days.  “The doctor said if he had come into the hospital an hour later, he would not be here,” Gries said, adding that Adam has now been cleared to return to work for half days and may resume to full days in a month.

Captain House Don House has been a full time professional US Coast Guard licensed fishing guide for the last 14 years. He is still going strong and living his dream!

Don started fishing when he was a young boy living in South Kansas City – fishing for crappie, bass and trout in and around Missouri and Kansas. He never thought he would become a full time guide and make a living doing it!

After attending college in Kansas City he spent the next 25+ years in the computer industry designing and installing large banking computer networks all over the US. After the sale of a computer company, he felt it was time for a change so he and his family moved from Kansas City to the Branson area to start a new life, and his guide business was started.

Don has been married for 35 years to Julie, his best friend and biggest supporter. Together they had two beautiful daughters, Abby and Katie who are already blessing them with grand babies.

“I’m just a hard working person who believes in God, Family and enjoying life and yes I have a passion and love to work as a fishing guide! So Let’s go fishing!”
