Galveston Bay Fly Fishing

Galveston Bay Fly Fishing invites you to connect with the beautiful world of the outdoors. Explore the Bay’s diverse and fluid environment, fish its pretty grass shorelines, endless shallow bayous, mudflats, grassy coves, and hidden back lakes.

The local waters offer fly fishing enthusiasts a lot of chances to catch that fish of a lifetime. Chase Redfish and sight cast to large Trout, Sheepshead, and Black Drum. Bring your fishing buddy with you and hone your angling skills. Let Capt. Chris show you how fly fishing is done in Galveston Bay!

With the bay in his backyard, Capt. Chris has been fly fishing for over two decades. He can be on the water, following the bite and surveying the conditions and the movement of fish every day. It’s essential for Capt. Chris to maximize your time on the water to make sure you grow as an angler.

Bring your own fly fishing gear or let the captain know and he will gladly bring you his own. Your boat for the day will be a 16’ skiff, built by Hell’s Bay in 2014. A truly amazing vessel, the skiff can get you places other can’t go. It comes powered by a 50 HP Tohatsu engine and has enough room for up to 2 anglers plus the guide.

Please note that all the fish caught will need to be safely released back into the water.
