TestimonialsGreg is a real professional who provides an excellent river fishing guide service. For starters he is a fun to be with in the boat. He generously shares his knowledge of the river and the tactics used to catch smallmouth bass. In four outings with Greg, my son and I have gained years worth of fishing experience in widely varying conditions. Each time Greg has easily managed to put us on quality fish and has provided us with first rate tackle and techniques to ensure a successful day of fishing. The beautiful natural setting of the Susquehanna River is a perfect back drop for a great outdoor experience.

Greg is a true professional. His knowledge of the river and tactics and techniques to use are superb. I have used hi before and each time he has worked his butt off to deliver a quality trip. Our latest trip had a lot of moving parts and required a lot of coordination and he pulled it off without any problems. He is a great person to be around and is someone I enjoy fishing with very much. This is why I keep coming back. I recommend Greg to anyone who wants a fishing guide. Keep up the good work Greg, you're the man.

I would like to take a moment to thank Greg for taking my brothers and I out for a great and memorable end of the season fishing trip on the North Branch of the Susquehanna, wow! 100 fish! What a day! Ten minutes from launching and Greg had us on fish and kept us on them on each spot we tried for the rest of the day.
Greg is truly a first class guide, going in to retrieve our snags and rigging us back up whenever we lost our lures. Fishing with Greg is more like fishing with a friend than with a guide, he unselfishly shares his river and fishing knowledge to further educate his clients on how to catch smallmouth bass.

I've had the distinct pleasure of being guided by Greg Smith of North Branch Outfitters on the North Branch of the Susquehanna in three different seasons, spring, summer and fall. Each season found the fish in different locations utilizing different patterns. Greg's knowledge of his river and angling ability put us on quality (and quantities of) fish in each of the varying seasons and respective locales. Greg's warm character and angling expertise were apparent from our first phone conversation putting me at ease and raising my expectations for a great trip. Three incredible trips later, I feel as though I'm calling a friend, not an outfitter, for a repeat booking.
Greg is an absolute delight to spend the day with. He works his butt off to get you on fish, and all you have to do is catch 'em. The scenery up and around the Endless Mountains of the Susquehanna River would be well worth the price all by itself... and believe me... living where I do, I "know" river scenery. If you are planning a guided trip to the North Branch this year, you owe it to yourself to go with Greg.

As a friend and fellow smallmouth angler, I can attest to Greg's abilities to locate and catch big beautiful smallmouth on the North Branch of the Susquehanna River. I have had the pleasure of fishing with Greg over the past 3 years from spring though fall. On every occasion, we have been able to hook and land numerous smallmouth in the 15 inch range and bigger.
It is common for Greg to find fish in the 18-20" range in the pre-spawn season, as well as the fall season.
I know Greg as an outdoorsman who understands nature's way. He was born and raised on the North Branch and knows all the local accesses and honey holes.
I would highly recommend Greg as a guide to any friend who is seeking to fish the North Branch. Give Greg the chance to put you on a smallmouth of a lifetime and I will 100% guarantee you will have a great time in some of the most beautiful countryside in America... God's country... the North Branch of the Susquehanna River!

Greg, I just wanted to thank you for taking me out on my first trip up on the North Branch. Had a great day on the water and really enjoyed the scenery as well as the great company. Maybe next time when we call "last cast" you'll let me catch the bigger smallie next time! Thanks again!! Can't wait to hit the water with you again.
Fishing with Greg is a pleasure. I was treated to an unspoiled rescource in the North Branch of the Susquehanna River from the NY state line to Tunkhannock, and Greg knows the area like the back of his hand. He should, he grew up there. I would highly recommend him as a guide without reservation and look forward to fishing with him again soon.
