Alex Kolody Guide Service

The waters in the state of New York are a freshwater angler’s dream. The many landlocked lakes, streams, and of course, Lake Ontario make for very productive fishing. Combine that with the Alex Kolody Guide Service (that will take you to the hottest fishing spots!) and you have the recipe for a memorable fishing adventure.

Fishing with Alex can be done either from his 21’ ProCraft Bass boat or by wading. The boat has a single 225 HP outboard Evinrude engine and can take up to 3 anglers, guide not included. If you’re a fan of hiking through the gorgeous nature of NY, wading trips are right up your alley. You’ll need to bring your own chest waders, as well as be ready to hike up and down the hilly countryside. It’s all worth it, as you’ll go after gorgeous Brown and Rainbow Trouts, as well as any other fish you run into.

You can choose from a wide range of lakes in the area, including Finger Lakes, and many other streams and small rivers. You can also hit Lake Ontario (from October to April), but all locations depend on the season – talk to Alex before arriving to figure out what you want to go after.

The fish on the catch list are all gorgeous prime targets. You can go spinning, popping for Bass, jigging for Lake Trout, power-fish with heavy tackle for Bass. Ice fishing is available from January to March. Fly fishing is also an option, though you’ll have to bring your own gear.

You will be supplied with high-quality spinning and casting gear, with Alex ready to give you instructions in whatever technique you want to try. You need to get a valid fishing license before arriving though. Drinks are also provided. You can bring your own food, but bananas are not allowed.

If you’re ready for some reel-screaming freshwater action, book a trip with the Alex Kolody Guide Service and get ready to try for your new personal best!

A lot of customers have had their personal best with Alex Kolody, for good reason! In the last 3 years, he's had about 30 personal species bests by his customers. Alex has been fishing since he was 4, when he was inspired by his dad, who fishes with him to this very day. A life of fishing has always been the right choice for Alex. He has also been a competitive tournament fisherman for the past 17 years.
