Toledo Bend Fishing Guides:
Below is a list of some of the Fishing Guides for the Toledo Bend Reservoir. Unfortunatlery, I have not had the pleasure of fishing with many of these guides. However, I have fished with Butch and Scott Covington and found them to be very knowledgeable about the lake and just great guys to spend the day with (and they put us on the fish). Additionally, I have spoken to all of the other guides on the phone and each guide offers different fishing experiences, from only Bass trips, to just Crappie and Brim, to Strippers, to all fish species; and, from larger groups with Pontoon boats to smaller groups fishing out of Bass boats. From our conversations, there is one thing I can tell you from that they all had in common and that is a passion for fishing. Please consider these guides the next time you are looking for a guide service out of Toledo Bend.
