Bill is awesome. He was a great fishing guide. My husband and I caught 20 plus strippers. My husband surprised me with a half day fishing guided expedition on Lake Powell as a Christmas Present. We had a great day and a wonderful experience. Keep on keeping on Bill!!!

Two of us fished with Bill on September 26, 2015. Bill is a seasoned professional who knows Lake Powell well and understands how fish think. We had a very successful day of fishing. Bill worked hard to find fish and has multiple rigs and setups immediately available to take advantage of opportunities when they present themselves. And he is an... More

I spent one of the best day's on the Lake Powell with Capt. Bill McBurney last week. It was obvious that Capt. McBurney knows Lake Powell and its fish, and their habits very well. He knew all the places to go where we found lots of fish. We caught some huge stripers and some nice smallmouth. In addition to his... More

Great guide! Best we've ever worked with. Bill really knows his lake. Capt. Bill took time to work with 2 very impatient teenagers without throwing them in the lake. We caught nice Strippers all morning. Not only is Capt Bill a great guide but also a pretty good cowboy as we reminisced about the old days in Arizona. My boys... More

I went on a trip with Captain Bill and had a great time. The trip was in March, not the peak season, but we caught some nice strippers on the fly rods. One of the best guided trips I've ever been on. Lake Powell is awesome and so were Bill and Judy!!
