Fly Fishing


Mudfish Adventures uses a custom built Gator-Tail boat with a 35 hp air cooled modified mud motor. This boat is the most exciting way to get to your fishing area. With this special low draft four wheeled drive type boat your guide can get you around the marshes in search of a fish of a lifetime. The back marshes of Toledo Bend Lake offers Fly casting to multiple structures that could be around any Cypress tree, Willow tree, stump field, log, lay down, grass, vegetation, lily pads, etc. This is where you have an opportunity to set the hook on a Big Green Back (Black Bass) that will inhale your fly.


Mudfish Adventures is open year round for fly fishing for Black Bass and any of the other species listed.


  • During the Spring months the bass will be shallow so you have an opportunity for a possible double digit bass.
  • Summer months the bass start schooling on the surface in different areas of the lake.
  • Fall to Winter the bass come back shallow again and put on a feed.
