My name is Marc Mitchell. I have been a guide on Lake Fork since 1982. I was guiding  part time then, and began guiding full time in 1986.  I was very fortunate to visually see and fish the area before it became Lake Fork, having been around it most of my life. Through hunting and fishing the area before Lake Fork came to be has helped me tremendously in my guide service, with the knowledge of which the maps do not show. To my knowledge, I offer the most continuous guide service on Lake Fork. I would like the opportunity to be your guide on your next trip to Lake Fork. Thanks for stopping by my website, and be sure to check out the Testimonial page while you're here!!!

Greg and I fished Lake Fork with pro guide Marc Mitchell and had a blast. We caught 40 + fish between 3-6 pounds. We were lucky because most boats at our lodge were only catching 1-5 fish per day. Some were using other guides and some were not. I have fished Fork on my on and with a guide and it seemed like completely different lakes. Give Marc a call he was able to help us catch fish when most people weren’t! Experience is one bait most of us don't have! ~ J.J.
