T.C. Fishing Guide Service

Be at one with nature in the peaceful surroundings of Lake Belton. T.C. Fishing Guide Service offers excellent fishing opportunities in central Texas, specializing in catching Hybrid Striper and White Bass. Your trip will be led by Captain Tommy Cochran, a highly knowledgeable local angler who loves nothing more than teaching his tried and true techniques for catching these fish.

Take a trip with Tommy, and you will be fishing from a very spacious 22’ Blue Wave center console, giving you unrestricted views of the lake and plenty of space to fish and maneuver. Fitted with a 150 HP Evinrude E-Tec engine, as well as an anchoring system and an icebox, this boat is set up to provide you a smooth fishing experience, and has been specifically designed to fish these waters.

Fishing for Hybrid Striped Bass and White Bass in Lake Belton is an unforgettable experience, and all the equipment and lures you need for a productive and enjoyable trip are provided. Capt. Tommy will be at hand to help you troll, jig, or spin as you attempt to reel ‘em in.

This picturesque lake is located near Fort Hood and is easily accessible from Austin. Lodging is available in the nearby cities of Belton and Temple.

The peak fishing season is mid-February through May, although fishing can be very good year-round. Whatever the season, you’ll be in for a treat, with Capt. Tommy committed to looking after you and providing you with a great time.

T.C. Fishing Guide Service invites you to give Tommy a call – let’s go fishing!
