Hi, I’m Tommy Cauley, a master fishing guide for Greers Ferry Lake. If you are looking for great fishing excitement give me a call. I was born and raised in Bee Branch, AR, just a short drive from the lake. I’ve been a guide for hire since 1994 and have been fishing this lake since 1965. For 5 years I enjoyed fishing the Pro / Am circuits, such as “Mr. Bass of Arkansas” and the “Everstart” series. I am currently the President of the Greers Ferry Anglers II Bass club (Arkansas Bass Federation affiliation). For more
detailed information, check my resume page.
I’m serious about my fishing and enjoy spending the day with other people who “just like to fish”.
Whether you want a full day or a half-day to accommodate your schedule, just call or click here to check for available dates and times. Check the rates page for prices. Bring your tackle or use mine. I have high quality Abu Garcia equipment.

Hey, if you have a son or daughter who hasn’t been fishing… bring them along. If they are beginners we’ll let them throw a line over the side or jig, and they will learn the joy of
fishing. It’s a great way to make wonderful memories with your kids.
› Largest bass caught to date……….9 ¾ lb.
› Largest Walleye caught to date ….10lb.
› Countless number of 6 lb. and above
› My specialty is Hybrid Striper, Largemouth, Smallmouth, Kentucky, and Walleye
› I also provide local guide service for fish, deer, turkey, and bear.
