The Adirondacks / North Country

The Adirondack Park is an ideal location for vacationing anglers and hunters. Located only a few hours from some of the largest Cities on the east coast, the Adirondacks exist as one of the largest protected regions in the United States. Excellent hunting and fishing opportunities exist. Upstate Guide Service (UGS) has been providing outfitted and guided sporting trips to visitors in the region since 2003. 

The Adirondack Park is home to hundreds of mile of rivers and streams, thousands of ponds, and millions of acres of spectacular rugged forest. This vast region offers a wide variety of trip options for many different species of fish.


Fly fishing and light tackle angling for trout, salmon, pike and bass is our specialty. UGS guides are USCG Masters Licensed Captains. Our boats are NYS Parks Marine Division Inspected and Certified. We provide safe and successful fishing trips on select lakes within the Adirondack Park.

Extended camping and fishing trips with all meals, boats, guides and equipment are available. UGS can outfit a genuine Adirondack fishing vacation for you and your friends! Low-impact camping techniques and quality equipment are employed to provide multi-day combination fishing and camping trips for individuals or small groups.   

When the lakes freeze UGS offers fully outfitted and guided ice fishing trips for families and groups. As the most experienced ice fishing guide service in the Adirondacks, UGS set the standard for safe and enjoyable Adirondack ice fishing trips. Heated shelters, hot lunch, and all the equipment for a quality ice fishing experience are provided! 

A variety of rustic and comfortable accommodations are available throughout the region. Complete outfitting and logistics for extended backcountry fishing trips are provided.
