Walking On Water – Guiding Ice Anglers to Shore As Storm Approaches.

Upstate Guide Service Inc. is a full-time guide service providing trips for beginner and expert anglers and wildfowlers throughout Upstate New York.  UGS Inc. holds current state and federal licenses required to captain a public vessel and operate a licensed guide service in New York State;

  • USCG Masters License
  • NYSDEC Guides License
  • NYS Parks Joint Pilot/Engineer License
  • NYS Inspected Vessel

All equipment is provided with the exception of personal effects. Fishing on the lakes is aboard a Lund Pro Fishing Boat set up with the latest electronics and safety equipment and inspected annually by the New York State Office of Parks &  Recreation Marine Division.

At all times the safety and comfort of each guest is the most important aspect of each trip. Hunting and fishing (like any outdoor activity where inclement weather, varied terrain, and remote locales are involved) can be inherently dangerous. Sound decision making, proper preparation and planning, and dependable equipment is incorporated into each and every Upstate Guide Service trip.
