Angler Reviews

“What a treat to be able to have a stretch of river all to yourself. Fishing the best spots, rather than what might be available on public water. Booking couldn’t have been easier and the directions and signage were great. Looking forward to exploring more of this great portfolio of properties.”

Not Sure Where To Fish?

FREQUENTLY  ASKED  QUESTIONS

Can multiple parties book the same property on the same day?

No.  Once you book the property, it is accessible to you and your party alone.  No other individuals (including land owners) will be disturbing the water.

What's the difference between public and private water fishing?

On public water, fish are more pressured, harder to catch, and finding a quality spot to fish on your own is difficult. On Expedition Outside private water, you will not find any other anglers, besides your party, you will have the most up to date information on fishing conditions, and healthier unpressured fish. Because of this there are some monsters hiding on our private water spots.
