Spring River Flies and Guides is the sole fly fishing outfitter and guide service located on the Spring River in North Central Arkansas. Owned and operated by Mark Crawford, Spring River Flies and Guides provides half- and full-day fly fishing float trips.
With over 14-years guiding on the Spring River, our guides have the experience and knowledge to ensure you have an enjoyable and successful fly fishing experience. Our trips can be tailored to your fishing ability. Whether you are new to fly fishing or an experienced angler, our guides will ensure you'll have an enjoyable and safe day on the Spring River.
Our Hyde drift boats provide a stable, comfortable and safe fishing platform and allow our guides to access portions of the Spring River that are not accessible by wading and to cover the majority of the river system that is habitable to trout.
NOTE: Valid Arkansas fishing licenses are required and are not provided. We practice catch-and-release fishing so Arkansas trout stamps are not required. Fishing licenses may be purchased online at the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission website.
