Expert Fishing & Tour Guide Services in The Great Smoky Mountains
"Fontana Guides is 1st class! My son and I used this service. Kyle is a great guide that can put you on some fish. This is one of North Carolina's best 3 day weekends you can have. Book Kyle Fronrath for fishing and stay at his father Robin's Lands Creek Log Cabins in Bryson City. Many of the cabins are right beside a large mountain stream. Look them up, AWESOME!. If you need a break from the fast lane I suggest you contact Kyle with Fontana Guides. We were very pleased."
"We had an incredible family fishing trip with Kyle Fronrath in North Carolina. He was one of the most knowledgeable and courteous guides I have ever fished with. We caught a bunch of rainbows, browns, and brooks. My family feels like we added a new friend to the family. We enjoyed every minute we spent with him. Kyle, Thank you for being gracious and such a great educator of your sport, environment, ethics, and conservation! Thanks Kyle!"
"Fontana Guides is the hands down choice for any fishing adventure in Western North Carolina. Kyle's fishing ability is scary good. Be prepared to catch fish and have a good time!"
"We had an absolute blast! We both agreed that it was our best fishing experience ever. I really appreciate you setting us on to some big fish. Thanks again for a great experience!"
"We had a wonderful morning with Kyle! He took great care with my little guy and made sure he had a great time! My son already wants to know when he can see Kyle again! Thanks so much for putting up the pictures. I would highly recommend Fontana Guides to anyone looking for the real deal!"
"We caught fish from the first cast to the last, literally!! First cast 19" Brown, last cast 14" Rainbow, with many in between!! Fontana Guides is friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and priced very reasonable. Would definitely recommend to friends. We will be back to explore some of the other trips Fontana Guides has to offer!"
"I had the best fishing trip of my life with Fontana Guides. They are a top notch outfit, and know how to catch tons of fish!"
"My wife and I scheduled a sunset tour with Fontana Guides for the first time last year. Kyle and Jessie were unbelievably accommodating and even allowed us to bring our French Bulldogs on the boat. Everything was perfect…very nice and clean boat, we visited all of the beautiful parts of the lake, and Kyle and Jessie went to great lengths to make sure that we were comfortable in every way during our tour. We scheduled another sunset tour again this year. Whether it is visiting Bryson City for the first time or as a repeat visitor, a sunset tour with Fontana Guides should not be missed."
"During our recent visit to the Bryson City area we had the pleasure of working with Kyle Fronrath with Fontana Guides. We were very impressed with Mr. Fronrath's knowledge in his field, his professionalism and determination and effort in helping us to target and catch the types of fish we sought after. Additionally, we found his prices to be reasonable compared to other guides we researched. We had a very successful fishing experience thanks to Mr. Fronrath and we will definitely use this very pleasant gentleman the next time we return to this area."
"We have had amazing fishing trips! Kyle Fronrath of Fontana Guides is great with kids, and always goes the extra mile to make sure everybody has an awesome fishing experience. His expertise of the local waters combined with his genuine caring attitude and patience will allow you and your family to make memories you will never forget!"
"We certainly had a great time! We were impressed with your fishing knowledge and how you took care of all of us novice trout fisherman. When we weren't getting the results you wanted you switched up the tackle to make sure we all got some action, and based on the pictures we did! It was really cool when I reeled in that monster trout and even cooler when Lizzie reeled in a bigger one, she was so excited and had a great experience as well! It helped having a really cute fishing guide she said, lol…We will be frying those Trout up tonight! Thanks again and we highly recommend Kyle and Fontana Guides for anyone who wants to have an excellent fishing experience while visiting the Fontana Lake area in North Carolina."
"Great experience! My 9 year old son, Aaron, and I have used Fontana Guides on 3 separate occasions. Each trip, whether lake or river, we caught tons of large fish! Kyle does a great job working with kids; teaching them about the fish, how to cast, how to handle them, and the best types of bait to use. I can't say enough. We will definitely continue using Fontana Guides in the future!"
