Spring Is Here!

Finger Lakes Landlocked Salmon On A Fly

Upstate Guide Service is a full-time, licensed, insured and professional guide service owned and operated by Mike Crawford. I specialize in providing fully outfitted and guided fly fishing, light tackle, ice fishing and waterfowling trips in the Finger Lake, Central, Adirondack and North Country regions of Upstate New York.

Every trip is tailored to each guest. All the equipment you need is provided.  A knowledge of when and where — combined with dependable equipment and effective techniques — insures you make the most of your valuable vacation time.

With 15 years professional guiding experience, I provide safe, enjoyable, and successful trips, every time out. I guide the lesser-known waters of Upstate New York, to provide my guests a quieter, more unique experience.  

Time spent on the water, enjoying the environment, laughing with friends…Catching fish.  That’s what it’s all about.
