Space City Fly Company – Houston

Get out of the city and be at one with nature. Space City Fly Company will show you the best of the Sam Houston National Forest. Explore the numerous rivers and creeks that wind their way through the lush wildlife, targeting some of the most sought-after fish in the country.

Matt Daubert will be your guide as you work your way through some of the 160,000 acres of nature. A Texan native, he’s been fishing all across the state for over 25 years. With a passion for conservation, he’ll take you to the untouched, pristine fishing grounds, and help you practice ethical fishing.

Up to 3 guests are welcome on every trip, with a kayak given to each. The 13’ Ocean Kayaks are built to navigate all kinds of water. Strong and sturdy, they’ll keep you afloat even as you battle it out with a monster fish, as well as giving you plenty of comfort when in the shallow waters.

All the fishing gear you need will be provided, including fly rods and bait. Hone your skills or learn for the first time as you battle it out with some exciting Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass, Catfish, and Crappie, among more.

Anglers of all levels are welcome aboard Space City Fly Company, including children, so don’t be shy to bring the whole family and make a real day of it. On full-day trips, you’ll be given lunch and drinks, but make sure to bring your own on shorter trips. At the end of the day, Matt will clean and prepare your catch for you to take home for a delicious treat. Grab your license online and get back to nature – it couldn’t be easier!
