We live close by and have our own boat, but hired John for a Father's Day fishing trip in hopes of learning the secret to trout fishing. It was a beautiful day and we caught... read more

We live close by and have our own boat, but hired John for a Father's Day fishing trip in hopes of learning the secret to trout fishing. It was a beautiful day and we caught ~ 40 fish between 8 and noon and kept the best for our limit. John showed us an easy way to clean them and gave... More

My husband and I fished with John this week. We enjoyed the entire 6 hours and caught over 80 trout. He is a pleasure to spend time with and taught us a lot. John took photos of us with our catch and release big fish and texted them to us the same day. So glad we chose John and highly... More

Great experience and fun time. Caught many, many trout even though conditions were not ideal. Wife had a fabulous time and caught more than I did despite not being a skilled fisher-woman thanks to John's coaching. Even saw eagles along the shore. Highly recommended as John is very personable and makes the time between fish enjoyable.

I'm a 66 year old avid fisherman and probably had my best 4 hours of fishing ever with John Sappington. My daughter and I fished the afternoon of Oct. 17 in record setting heat and no water running. We caught over 70 trout, the biggest being 21", several 16-17" and the largest limit of fish caught below the trophy area... More

Went on a half day trip with John. We couldn't have been happier with our experience. John was professional, courteous and friendly. We caught a lot of fish on a day where others around weren't doing so well. If you have ever considered a guided fishing trip, let John Sappington take you!

We fished with John in August, not the best time of year, but we caught lots of trout, shared a lot of laughs and had a great time. If you're going to Branson call John. You won't be disappointed.

I took a family vacation to Branson, MO in July of 2016. While on vacation I thought it would be fun to go fly fishing on Lake Taneycomo. I have never been fly fishing and thought it would be a good idea to get a guide so that I might learn how to trout fish and maybe catch something. John... More

3 buddies and I went on a 1/2 day fishing trip for rainbow trout and had an awesome time. John was great to fish with. Even though the conditions where not ideal we caught a lot a fish and have a lot of good memories. This is a must do if you like to fish!

John was great, knowledgeable, and got us on the fish quick. 4 guys caught 65 fish in almost four hours. Excellent, and will definitely come back with John.

John is just that - a truly Professional Guide by any measure. He put us on fish, for 2 days, under very poor fishing conditions; and he took extra special care of my 94-year old father, who by the way, caught more fish than either my brother or I. We have used John previously and we will use him again... More
