Welcome to Grateful Guides. Owners Mike Breeding and Andy Chiu would like to thank you for visiting our web page and giving us the opportunity to host your next spin fishing or fly-fishing smallmouth adventure in central Pennsylvania. One of our top-notch fishing team members are here to help ensure that your next spin or fly-fishing adventure is everything you expect... and much more. We offer trips on our custom jet boats, drift boats and rafts.

The goal of Grateful Guides is to provide professional expertise on all of our waters, always keeping in mind that you make the decisions on the type of fishing you prefer. Venturing onto the river with a fishing guide is key to an enjoyable and successful fishing trip.

Our Central Pennsylvania Rivers showcase some of the finest river smallmouth bass fisheries in the world. In addition to the Susquehanna River and Juniata River in Central PA, we offer guided trips in Western PA on the Allegheny River and in Eastern PA on the Delaware River. Although we specialize in guided day trips on Pennsylvania’s free flowing rivers, we also offer custom fishing and fly-fishing adventures targeting various species around the world. Our year-round fisheries ensure that you can enjoy a memorable fishing adventure any time of the year.

Whether you're a seasoned veteran fisherman, or a bright-eyed beginner, we have a fishing adventure waiting for you. With over 30 years of guiding experience between the both of us, on fisheries all over the world, we truly enjoy sharing our knowledge and techniques with others to provide the best fishing opportunities we can offer.

We take pride in carrying on the tradition of providing anglers with a fun, genuine, and quality experience on the water that will keep you returning year after year.
