Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Our party fished with Rick and team the last weekend of February 2023. Overall our experience was superb. Rick is a professional, knowledgeable, hard working guide that knows the water of Lake Taneycomo and place his customers in position to catch fish. I highly recommend Rick and we will be using him again in the future.

    We had a great trip with John Sappington! Not only is he a heck of a guide but he is pleasant to spend the day with. His equipment is first class. He had my buddy and I on fish all day. I highly recommend John.

    Jake from State Park Marina was extremely helpful and full of information. We rented the fishing boat because it was so much cheaper than the speed boat. It was extremely hot the day we rented and Jake helps us find good places to avoid the sun and heat. This Marina has a lot of class. We would definitely recommend.

    Capt Dave was great. It was a cold February day but that soon didn't matter as we started bringing beautiful rainbow trout into the boat. My eight year old grandson was soon claiming he was the best fisherman. After a few catch and release, we soon limited out. Dave was very knowledgeable knew when and where to switch out baits and lures. He soon had us on our way after cleaning and filleting our fish. Thank you for a great experience.

    If I could give 6 starts I would. The staff was incredibly nice. Not only did they upgrade our boat but they gave us a lot of great rainbow trout fishing information. They advised on both bait and location and we ended up within 1 trout of our limit the day we rented the boat. They really go out of their way to make you feel like family.

    I hadn't been on the duck tour for several years. Even though many things have changed, it was just as enjoyable. Charlie was our tour guide, he was very knowledgeable and kept us laughing the entire time. We took a little cruise by the landing on Lake Taneycomo, and kept our eyes peeled for bald eagles. This ride is definitely something we will do again!

    We’ve never been fly fishing before but wanted to give it a try. We knew NOTHING about fly fishing, absolutely NOTHING. River Run Outfitters was FANTASTIC to work with - from the initial call to book the guided trip, to the confirmation call the day before, to the preparation the morning of at their store, to the actual trip itself. Everyone was SUPER nice and helpful! They take care of EVERYTHING. Darren and Gary were our guides. Both were extremely patient. Fly fishing is VERY different from the blue gill fishing we were used to. We had a GREAT time with them, and everyone caught a fish. Mission accomplished!

    The taneycomo trip was nice and relaxing. The driver drove fast and was in a complete hurry to quickly go over instructions as he sped down to the drop off. I felt very frazzled listening to him quickly go over everything… and then we had to wait an hour for him to pick us up because he was busy with another group. So we just sat on the boat ramp in the sun baking for an hour. The float itself was nice. We will use another outfitter the next time around however.
