Guided Fishing in North Carolina and Alaska

Backcountry Guide Service is locally owned and operated. Our goal is to provide our guests with a safe, educational, world class experience on the Tar and Roanoke rivers.

Our flexibility allows our anglers a multitude of options including fly casting, spin casting and trolling. We want to provide our guests the ability to fish within their comfort zone as well as giving them the option to explore different techniques. Our guests' satisfaction is of the utmost importance and we strive to provide an educational outdoor experience. Children and less mobile guests can fish in the safety and comfort of our wide, stable boat. We can provide the trip of a life time for the novice as well as the most seasoned angler.

We target various species including Striped Bass (in season), Hickory and White (American) Shad (in season), Large Mouth Bass, Crappie and Bream. Our guest can focus on one or multiple species and use multiple methods for their hook ups. All of our gear is of the highest quality and our custom Willie boat is by far the best aluminum boat on the river.

Please join us for a safe, educational experience that will not be forgotten.

Carolina Backcountry operates October thru May in North Carolina and June thru mid October on the Kenai River in Alaska.
