Mountain Lakes Guide Service


My name is Aaron Kephart, and I am the owner of and primary guide for Mountain Lakes Guide Service. We are a family oriented business with the goal of getting people out on the water, assisting them in enjoying our gorgeous mountain lakes, and catching more fish. We are based in beautiful Murphy, North Carolina, and guide on Hiwassee, Chatuge, Fontana, and Appalachia lakes. We guide for largemouth, smallmouth, spotted, and striped bass, crappie, catfish, bluegill, trout, and walleye. I average 150 days a year on our bodies of water, and I have over 25 years of local fishing experience. I also have extensive tournament experience, having competed in BAIT,  BITE, USA Bassin, Heartland Anglers, The Bass Federation, and Federation Nation tournaments in North Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, and Alabama. We can accommodate skill levels from first time fisherman to touring professional, and our trips include all bait and equipment (we do ask that you provide your own raingear). We hope you will check us out, send us a message or give us a call, and come fish with us. God bless, and good fishing!

We'll help you catch more fish.
