Welcome to Anglers Advantage, professional fishing guide service, located on Lake Taneycomo, home of one of the best rainbow trout and brown trout fisheries in the United States. Our fishing guide service is located right on the shore of Lake Taneycomo, just a half mile south of the famous Highway 76 strip in Branson, Missouri. Beginners to experts, individuals, families and groups, Captain Steve will make sure you catch more trout than you ever have and have a great time while reeling in the fish.  In fact, we're so sure you'll catch fish that we guarantee it.  CATCH FISH OR YOUR MONEY BACK!  We believe that if you hire a professional fishing guide to take you fishing, you ought to catch fish every time, period.  Whether you're on a four hour or an eight hour trip with us, if you don't catch fish we will refund your money 100% on the spot.  (Our track record to date is 100%!  No one has ever fished with Captain Steve and not caught a lot of fish). Captain Steve is BransonÍŠ only full service, full time fishing guide who lives on the lake.  There are seasonal guides that live nowhere near Branson and have no idea where the fish are and what they are biting on.  We provide all equipment necessary for a fantastic day on Taneycomo--fly rods, spinning rods, waders, flies and bait at no extra cost to you. Of course, you may use your own equipment if you prefer. We provide cold bottled water and snacks on all of our trips.

Fly fishing, spin fishing, or bait fishing, Captain Steve will show you all of the best techniques. We are open seven days a week, fifty two weeks a year, and on Taneycomo Lake every one of those days. Captain Steve knows where the rainbow trout and brown trout are and what these trout are biting on. I can show you where to find the fish, including secret spots that are normally overlooked by other trout fishermen. Captain Steve is committed to giving you the best guided fishing trip you've ever been on.


Whether you're boat fishing, wade fishing or both, this will be your fishing trip and we'll fish however you prefer.  Choose from super aggressive tactics without a second's rest to casually drifting down the 22 mile lake relaxing and enjoying the incredible scenery and wildlife of Lake Taneycomo while catching rainbow trout and brown trout.  Clean restrooms are available during our fishing trip. 


Special needs are not a problem.  There is a boat ramp for handicapped or disabled persons at Cooper Creek access in Taney County, just a short distance down the lake from our dock.  To reach this ramp at Cooper Creek, just take Highway 76 from Branson to Fall Creek Road, go 1.7 miles to River Run Road then south 0.1 miles to Cooper Creek Road, east on Cooper Creek Road .05 mile to the access entrance on the left.  We will be happy to pick you up at this ramp and deliver you back to your vehicle at the conclusion of your fishing trip.  Captain Steve wants all children to have the opportunity to go fishing.  If you have a child with disabilities' who would enjoy participating in a fishing trip, just give us a call and we will work out the arrangements, and whatever is needed to make this a wonderful experience for your child.
