Have you ever dreamt of wading a flat with a fly rod in your hand, with no one else in sight, and with tailing fish as far as you could see? Such dreams often come true on the Lower Laguna Madre.
Kingfisher Flyfishing Company offers classic sight casting for redfish and speckled trout on the spectacular Lower Laguna Madre of deep south Texas. We are native guides, having grown up on the Lower Laguna––and we are deeply in tune with the rhythms of our home waters.
Our commitment to fly fishing extends from the writing we have done in the field, to the videos that we have posted for your enjoyment, to the cutting-edge NewWater skiffs that we use to access the most remote, least pressured areas of the Lower Laguna.
Kingfisher once hosted clients in its own waterfront Inn, but recently we decided to do what we do best––guide dedicated fly fishers. In turn, we have joined forces with two local waterfront lodging establishments to provide flexible, high-quality lodging experiences for our clients. Thus, whether you are traveling alone, with a partner, or in a small group, we have lodging options to accommodate your particular needs.
You will be simply amazed at the quality of our fishery. Some say that it's the best redfish fishery in the world, given the clarity of water, primitiveness of setting, and abundance of fish. The Lower Laguna Madre also boasts five of the seven current IGFA fly fishing world record speckled trout, so you cannot find a better place to cast to world record trout.
Easily accessible by Southwest and United flying into Harlingen, Texas, the Lower Laguna is no more than half a day's flight from most airports in the lower 48, providing a serious alternative to far-flung tropical venues.
As the only subtropical fishery in the US outside of Florida, and one of the only primitive estuaries left in the world, the Lower Laguna is a remarkable natural treasure.
