Guided Trout Trip Rates for Public Water

Out professional staff will guide you on some of New Jerseys finest rivers: South Branch of the Raritan River (including the Ken Lockwood Gorge), the Musconetcong River, and the Pequest River. If you are looking to explore tributaries or a specific creek, we can absolutely help you out with that as well. We are excited to begin offering Pennsylvania guide trips very soon! All guiding clients are required to sign an insurance waiver prior to beginning their trip.


Guiding on Public Water and our own Shannon's Private Waters at the Raritan Inn

is a great gift for the angler in your life!


We specialize in providing clients, especially those new to the area or fly fishing, a fun and information filled experience on our local waters. Experts and beginners can improve their casting, presentation, wading, fly selection, knot tying, entomology and stream etiquette. SBO is located one mile from the Ken Lockwood Gorge, one of New Jersey's premier fly fishing destinations, as well as many other great areas in this lovely corner of the Garden State. Let our guides share with you their decades of experience to provide a fun and productive day of fly fishing. 

All of our guides are "in-house guides", fully insured and certified in CPR. Guides provide basic terminal tackle including flies, tippets and leaders. Rental gear (boots, waders, and rod) are available.

Group rates available upon request.
